  1. I ride as often as possible. Ive been going to uni and back all this week and tonight i had a numpty complete with pillion come up past me at a great rate of knots while the traffic i was in was approaching a junction. He slammed his brakes on and proceeded to squeeze himself in front of me and the car in front of him! Now there was plenty of room for him to pull in next to me but why he didnt do this i have NO idea.....maybe it was because i was on my little cruiser and he on a GSXR - no offence to sportsbike riders intended but it seems to be some of the sports bike riders that are the worst! I rode a CBR myself up until last year and i dont recall feeling the need to try and take out/scare/bully another biker on the road with it - so it definately aint the bike. I have stopped going to places like Matlock Bath on a weekend due to the number of pillocks with a death wish that want to try and turn me onto paste under a car/bus/truck along with themselves on the bends. Ok so i dont ride as fast as some would like and im not trying to break the world land speed record on a sunday afternoon, but i actually ENJOY my bike as it is and dont feel the need to tear up the tarmac and prove what a fantastic rider i am on a weekend, and i just wish these people would think about other road users, especially other bikers. Glad your ok though honey

    Hey Tantalus!!! We miss you over there you know honey. Come back and visit us from time to time and say hello!
  11. Here's what i've just had done on my XVS650. The pics were taken before it was laquered so it will looke a lot better once its back. I should be able to collect my bits this coming saturday so once the bike is back together ill post pics of that it looks like complete. The guy who did it does this as a hobby and i think he's done a beltin job - all for £150 (exluding base coat and laquering cos he only does the artwork!) I know its not everyone cuppa tea but its certainly mine and a real one off - im proper chuffed

    Lol well Im a Goth - although i've mellowed a bit as i've got older. All my friends call eme Goth/Goff depending where they come from lol, so its kinda stuck. Everyone who knows me uses Goff/Goth and i've always answered to it - im more used to it now than my birth name! I shall go over and post some piccies of my paint job too
  13. Im having REAL trouble getting hold of a replacement lock for the storage compartment for my XVS650. Ive been in touch with the nearest Yam dealer and he said he can get one but they come without a key - which i dont really understand! Has anyone ANY ideas at all where i can get one from (with key!)? Ive tried everywhere, all over the net including Evilbay and im stumped now. Thanks in advance Lisa x
