I'd like to say yes however with 3 kids I'm more likely to buy a Ford.

I think that the main issue is that for the cost of upgrading the bike, you can get a much newer, more capable bike.

The project was great fun when I did it, but the fuel economy was shot, the bike was still very heavy and aside from confusing gixxer 600 owners off of the lights, didn't have that much going for it.

I know its possible to fit a zx10r or a zzr14 front end but cant remember what years fit best, also the aprilia 'banana' swing arm also fits the rear quite well.

I also spent way too much money upgrading my old zx7r, even swapped the engine from a 9r.

I regret selling mine, but if I bought another I'd not do the engine swap again,but spend that money on the rest of the bike instead.

Well, today...

Idiot #1 decided to see if idiot #4 was still sore after getting the tattoo...
By kicking him in the balls.

I've not even had my lunch yet.

It was s pretty normal morning, answering emails and chasing people for some paperwork... until I got called down to the stores, why was I called down to the stores... idiot #3 challenged  idiot #2 to lick a battery.... not the small 9v battery with the terminals at the top no...
 It's a 14v 0.5amp battery, and now he cant feel his tongue.

Idiot #4 however has outdone himself. Properly outdone himself.

He has been with his girlfriend for 6 months, and has decided to show his affection for her.
Did he buy her flowers, no
Has he bought her jewellery or a holiday, no.

He's had her name tattooed on his c**k...

Anyone got any jobs going? Think I need a new one.

I was recently given an old CB250n, however it doesn't have any paperwork or reg plate.

Does anyone know of a way to find out what the reg number is from the vin?

I've been looking on the auction sites for a while, just trying to work out the logistics of getting it back to the UK and wondered if any of you lovely people had done it before.

Bike Talk / Importing a bike from Japan

I've been looking at starting 50cc racing next year and slowly getting everything together to help keep costs down.

As of yet I still haven't managed to get my hands on a bike but noticed a large number of cheap bikes in Japan

Has anyone in here imported a bike before? As it's looking to be cheaper for me to get one from Japan than the UK with some of the silly prices being asked.
