Idle Banter For non SV and non bike related chat (and the odd bit of humour - but if any post isn't suitable it'll get deleted real quick).
There's also a "U" rating so please respect this. Newbies can also say "hello" here too.

Default Cafe Racer - I like

If I was back in the UK i'd be tempted by this as a road bike:

Anything bad about them apart from being old and not the same as modern bikes?
