  1. Nahhhh, i wont regret it and i wont be sorry. I WILL be getting another bike, but it kills me to see it sat there for more than half the year not being ridden. Not the bikes fault, its a beut, but with uni and my new job, i just can get to ride it as much as it should be ridden. I dont mind having an old classic that we can chop to feck over the winter, but a new bike like this deserves to be ridden and admored, not locked away.

    Hi Goff nice bike 'n' tats i was goin to make a comment to above, but....... I'll just get me coat! :unsure:


  2. Hello, just registered and looking forward to buying my first bike in 40 years. Just got that bug again. Looking to start small say Virago 125 then move up the cc tree to something bigger.

    Just one quetion please that someone may be able to help me with

    Why are some XV Virago 33bhp and some 10bhp?


    Hi Ian, welcome to the mad house :lol: as for your question, I would think that the 33bhp is a 250cc and the 10bhp would be a 125cc learner ....i stand (or sit) corrected :rolleyes: any ways, WELCOME


  3. Hi fellow bike fanatics.

    I am a new member, im 20 from essex in england!

    I am in trouble with my bike at the moment.. the engine on my Yamaha dt 125R 2004 seems to have siezed up. The enginge wont turn over even with a bumpstart, the back wheel stays locked.

    Is there any other way to test if the engine is siezed?

    I think I may need to take the engine off so I can send it away to be fixed, a full enginge rebuild is available on eBay for 300pounds.

    Any help or diagrams or step by step to taking the engine off.. I have all the tools etc..


    hi and welcome, as cynic said if you have the tools and a manual with a bit of confidence you can do it, it's a two stroke engine and one of the simplest designs, I wouldn't go near Evel bay for something like this, if in Dowt try to get to know the local bike mechanics for help! :)

  4. Hi guy's, thank for the nice welcome, yes I'm an old call G8 and I do have a M3 call but have let it lapse when I got full rights to all the bands, my favourite is 20 mtres and 70cm bin quite active in the past help set up and built the logic for GB 3AH and various other things, yip walked up that bit of Mam tore (thought that's a good place to take the Quad) ;-))... Done 66mls on the new bike ..laid up in bed at the mo, bad heads and congestion, worst for hay fever for years, see you all later in the Bar ;)
