Possibly the wrong time to start this one.
Bike. Anywhere interesting . Bimble or spirited.  Or just to pop out for an errand ?

Sunday afternoon.
Scottish Borders. Had to do the Beeftub twice.
Spirited at times.

Bike Talk / So, what if
July 06, 2019, 08:19:34 am
So what if MotoGP rules were relaxed . Manufacturers were allowed to build whatever they wanted. What do you think manufactures would build. Would we see bigger engines, more aerodynamics, more electronics ??? Rotary engines ?

Bikes can only have 2 wheels. And the races and calendar stay as they are. No changing of bike throughout the season.

Bike Talk / 2018 plans
December 24, 2017, 08:52:41 pm
So 2018 is just round the corner. What biking plans has everyone got ?
I am hoping to get a week in Europe on the bike with the missus. Thinking of Turin. Still to work out route and if it's too far for a week trip. Apart from that it will be the usual rideouts, and hopefully a couple of overnight trips. Also booked to go to Jerez for the MotoGP, but that's a fly and drive weekend.  :moto:
Bike Talk / Torque settings.
July 10, 2017, 09:37:01 pm
Did there not used to be a thread with ZX6R 2003 torque settings somewhere on the site ? Had a quick look but can't find them. Can't find them in my garage either and had them printed off too. This wine on a Monday isn't helping either.  :dontknow: :dontknow:
Bike Talk / ECU re-flash Z1000SX
January 02, 2017, 08:14:30 pm
Thinking about getting my ECU re-flashed. Ivans in the States seems to be the preferred choice of Z1000, Z1000SX owners.(Ivans link)= http://www.ivansperformanceproducts.com/2014z1000.htm
Has any one any experience of re-flashing. Pros ? Cons ? Got the full Akrapovic waiting to go on. Akrapovic say the bike doesn't need any adjustments to run the full system,. So the re-flash is just tweaking it. Does any one know if there is anywhere in the UK that does a re-flash of the ECU for the Z1000SX. Cheers.
Chyrel is 50 on Friday the 10th of February and has decided to have a party that night. Venue is the Queen Charlotte Rooms in Leith. This is  an invitation to any past attendees (and their partners)of the Memorial rideout or Borders rideout. She would love to have you there to celebrate her half century. If you wanted a weekend in Edinburgh and a party on the Friday this could be perfect for you. If anyone fancies it can you get back to me so C has numbers for the buffet. No presents as she has more stuff than she needs. Your presence would be appreciated though.  :occasion14:

Bike Talk / Squeaky boots .
May 06, 2016, 04:18:39 pm
I got a new pair of Sidi ST Goretex and they squeak like f**k when i walk. My old Sidis had a squeak too, though not as loud. On the old ones I used WD40 and that stopped the noise. Does  anyone know if it will be ok to use WD40 on the Goretex ones or has anyone any other product recomendations ? I read somewhere to use Mr Sheen. Cheers.  :shocked:

OK folks, looking to book The Starbank for the Friday and Kushis for the Saturday. Can people say if they want both nights or just one,and state which. I have provisionally booked the Starbank for 20 for the Friday. Will book Kushis soon. Could do with getting names and numbers before I become a grandad.  :azn:
