    Sounds like an idea. Don't use my bike for work much at all. It's 16 mile each way along a dead straight road. With unlocking the garage, the bike and putting on leathers it takes 15min longer. And the bike does 10mpg less plus oil than the car. The 3k miles thing sounds fun though. Esp with landmarks.

    Great My old horse is currently sitting at 41412 miles. I should do 3000 no problem. I commute every day on bike at a round trip of 48 miles but I won't count these miles as part of the 3k (I'm so honest). I was gonna say 5k but 3k is more realistic for us lot,,,, apart from pliningas,,,, Hey Blackie, how you keeping,,,,,, lots of snow up your way?? I'm still in Essex/London border slaving away and working in London central. It's like having a death wish every day filtering,,,, cyclists, people and scooters are the worst, they come at you from all directions crossing roads without even looking. (anyway that's enough about that). The Landmarks and Iron Butt thing sound good. Happy Trails,,,,,,,pat

    Much as I hate to admit it john, my understanding is that Triumph (meriden) copied the xs 650 for this model (T140D Special)

    Sounds good. This year I’ve signed up to get the list of destinations that the UK Iron Butt lot would have chosen from during a 48 hour rally last year. The destinations are all across the UK (about 90 in total) and the aim is to complete as many as possible throughout the year. I have to take a pic at each destination.

    3,000? I'll be lucky. Only rode 1,500 last year on the fazer, and 300 on the virago. Sold the virago last summer cos it just wasn't being used, and i'd really rather let someone have it that would. Since I retired, ive found that I have even less time to ride. Odd, really. First grandchild on the way too, ill struggle again this year. Didn't help when my youngest broke her leg and I had the four horses and dog to look after though

    Hi Toni Welcome. I just bought one of these last year and i can tell you it puts a smile on my face everyday. Put some Black Widow pipes on among other changes and she sounds great. Only thing is keep the originals you will need them for MOT but they clip on and off so easy.

    Yeah, the lack of the monoshock was a huge marketing mistake for the XT 500 as far as I was concerned back then, and I still think that now. By the time they got to the 550 with the monoshock, the styling had just gone a bit too far for me. Had plenty of time on a monoshock YZ 400 back in the early 80's.......what a bike !!!!

    Yep - it does run through the frame and mount at the front of the tank too - if you find it, could you check its length and diameter and let me know please (a photo would be great also). We're really after an updated shock, but if yours is the same, maybe we could get it rebuilt/upgraded - would be happy to spend cash to get it "right" for some adventurous off-road riding 😀

    It snowed last night ❄☃️8:00 am: I made a snowman.8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere. 8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead. 8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts. 8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with. 8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white. 8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up . 8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended. 8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role. 8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction. 8:45 - TV news crew from ABC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist. 9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather. 9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services. 9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested. Moral: There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.

    No you don't get a dating letter from us on here. we are just an owners club/site. you need to go to a .GOV site. Try here https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk/registering-an-imported-vehicle And you will need a NOVA certificate to get the ball rolling, all explained on the site above. Good luck.

    Paddy and Colleen were making passionate love in Paddy's mini van when suddenly Colleen, being a bit on the kinky side, yells out, "Oh big boy, whip me, whip me!". Paddy, not wanting to pass up this unique opportunity, obviously did not have any whips on hand, but in a flash of inspiration, he opens the window, snaps the antenna off his van and proceeds to whip Colleen until they both collapse in ecstasy. About a week later, Colleen notices that the marks left by the whipping are starting to fester a bit so she goes to the doctor. The doctor takes one look at the wounds and asks, "Did you get these marks having sex"? Colleen, a little embarrassed that she has slept with Paddy (let alone that she allowed the kinky boy to whip her) eventually admits that, yes, she did. Nodding his head knowingly, the doctor exclaims, "I thought so, because in all my years as a doctor, you've got the worst case of van aerial disease that I've ever seen." I will get me coat
