Cheers for the replies chaps. Is it as simple as paying the hosting site and they take car of everything? Or will there be loads for me to do? It wont be a very busy site.

Quote from: Maddog on January 14, 2020, 06:45:36 pmAhhhhhhh  boys.......... thats not what i wanted to hear!!! Why wasn't the bike any good after the upgrades? Is there a common issue?

Not meaning to kick your new puppy but they are a 25 year old design. Nearer 30 if you're being harsh because they were pretty much a ZXR750J with some of the race kit developments in them. Strip the fairings off a 1991 ZXR750 and a ZX7R and you struggle to tell them apart.

Do it if you want to build a nostalgic replica but don't expect it to be fast. I traded mine for a new Fireblade way back in 2003 and realised I'd wasted thousands of pounds ten seconds after riding the newer bike.

it all depends on disk space and bandwidth
its best to get a deal that can scale up as demand increases
you could probably get some hosting for a few quid a month that will tide you over for the first 12 months as unlikely to have huge requirements initially.

https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting - i use this for my personal hosting, they are sufficent... nothing more, but they are cheap

i would highly recommend these guys
https://cloudabove.com/hosting
we use them for all our company websites, very good support

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.

Quote from: Maddog on January 25, 2020, 06:36:51 pmDoes anyone know what year ZX10rr has the auto blipper? If its the 2017 then i am buying a Ninja.....

I'm not sure it does from the factory but it's not a difficult thing to get retro-fitted from MY2016 onwards.

nope.
cant see me going back to a sports bike now... not unless i win the lottery and then i doubt would be looking at zxr6r's!

although these bikes are not aimed at our market though to be fair
the 600 sports was the bike you bought when you first got your big bike licence
from the youngsters i speak to, it still is the route most take
