  1. Don't know how old you are Snakebite (52?) but I'm 71 and am still loving the freedom of getting out on the bike on my own if only just to go for a twenty mile round trip to nowhere or better still to go to a destination to see someone and back again. But obviously not during this lockdown of course. Don't want to put pressure on the NHS. Mike.
  2. Interesting topic Snakebite. I started biking later on in life. When I was forty years old to be exact, my sister-in-law had an old Puch moped she wanted to get rid of so she said if you come and collect it, it's yours. That was in 1989 and that's when the motorbike bug hit me and have been biking ever since so started when I was forty and thirty one years later I'm still biking with a Suzuki Bandit GSF1250 Mike.
  3. Hi Zeeshan, Your intro smacks like a bit of advertising. Naughty boy. Mike.
  4. Same here, took the bike out yesterday around Chippenham to pick up PPE for the wife's return to work next week. When back to normality really looking forward to bombing it down the M4 Eastbound towards the smoke. Mike.
  5. Yes Neo, very strange, but as Drewpy and Cynic has said, if me I would hang onto it for a while. Mike.
  6. Hi R80DWR and a very big welcome to the forum. Looking at your first photo of the XJ600s Diversion brought back so many memories. I had one for ten years taking me to work and back in all weathers with only a few minor wear and tear faults as you would expect. Mike.
  7. Hi JB, welcome to the forum. Mike
  8. Hi Kev and welcome to the forum. I might be wrong and even talking out of place but I'm getting the impression that this forum is "slowing down" and going over to Facebook. Mike
  9. Hi Ade. Welcome to the forum, not far from you just about twenty miles east on the M4. Mike

    Hardest day.

    Both my kids left home in the same month nine years ago, my youngest now lives 200 miles away in the Pool and my eldest lives about 5000 miles away in China.
  11. Not me, I'm Mick from Cirencester but Mike from Chippenham. Not guilty M'lord.
  12. As Cynic said, go through the right protocol, i.e. (New Members Welcome Area) to introduce yourself then to the right section for your specific problem. But to give you credit..................... You did specify with......................... Sorry if this isn't the right place! Need help with broken bike
  13. I know I should be in the "for sale" section, but I'm giving this away for nothing. The only stipulation is whoever want's it must collect from Chippenham, Wiltshire. Also the only drawback is that about 15 years ago the tank sprung a leak, as you can see I have sealed the bottom of the tank but I think that the inside of the tank will need some sort of internal sealant. BTW, the colour is "Dark Siam Metallic"
  14. It's brilliant when the bike off road due to ill health and you get it back on the road again. Mike.
  15. Hi Tom, welcome to the forum. Your best bet is to just introduce yourself in this New Members Welcome Area then go to the relevant section in the workshop section. Hope this helps. Mike.
