Fast boys (or girls)?

Squid?

Tourer?

Adventure?

Custom?

Club member?

Commuter?

very over priced for what they are. A lot of people seem to buy the bikes and all the HD gear, but instead of actually learning how to maintain the bikes it comes down to money. Whilst I like money I admire and tend to be more appreciative of people who can maintain bikes or cars in fact people who can do things for themselves.

True they are expensive, but I feel that they hold a little more value than most because of resale and I know a few that have seen Well over 100000odo.

Harley is an ace platform for custom work and modification, I cut my teeth tarting up sportsters. The after market is huge and is totally accessible for newer riders who want to learn. It is a shame about the price especially for things that come standard on most bikes these days (abs etc).

BMW f650 is quite low straight from the factory, most bikes can easily be lowered, but if you like your little gs, why not try a bandit, easy to maintain, cheap on parts and pretty bulletproof engine wise..

Hello all,

Many a year as a sports bike rider, now on a BMW F650 GS Dakar (it’s definitely not low!!).

Great bike though. Torquey and plenty fast around London, and good for getting across Dartmoor on wild camping trips

If you go the triumph route i'd go for the street triple rather than the speed at first, had a street triple until some cock decided to nick it, was a brilliant bike

I think I'm an everything biker.

I commute most days in all weather.

I have an adventure and enduro bike and try and ride a lot of green lanes and the odd enduro day.

I have an old British bike and often ride it to bike nights (when they happen)

Toured all over Europe and done trip in South East Asia.

Enjoy going to Rallies, none this year though.

My favourite is racing though and have been racing for over 20 years and still love it. In fact I'm at Cadwell Park now.

Adventure bike now but always been a sports/sports tourer type. Far too many to mention over the years and dabbled in track days, MotoX enduro and trials.

I love any thing with two wheels, no such thing as a bad bike theyre just different and there is one for everyone !!

I'm a cunt.

Wheelie away from every traffic light. Chase every biker I see to pull up and race. Promise myself I won't go fast but end up maxing the bike out on the motorway. Get my knee down at every opportunity.

Sit and wash and clean my bike to showroom standard. Bleed my brakes every other month. Warm up my tyres with a heater everyday for the commute to work. Think my tyres are going off after about 1000 miles.

Need to slow down but I can't.

Go to several bike nights at local pubs as well as rides out around North Wales and South York’s and over the peaks.

Current ride is a Suzuki B-King and still have a B12 in the garage, both streetfighters.

Sports bike & tourer, but both fair weather unless I need to be somewhere.

Been through a lot of the standard race reps so now modifying a twenty year old favourite. Probably could have bought a nice S1000RR for what it’s costing me but that’s not really the point is it. It’ll be mine, made by me (mostly) & for me.

Increasingly having trouble getting Euro Breakdown cover for my twenty eight year old tourer though, Well cover that I don’t say “How much!!!” When I’m quoted anyway

45k plus per year

Well the term ‘modern classic’ is open to personal interpretation but it’s an homologation 916. Still has the go to rival a modern sports bike in decent UK roads. I makes me smile though which is the main thing!

Yeah that’s a modern classic alright , great bike .. I have a chance of buying a 748 at the moment , but it’s a 748 and I’m not quite sold on it . If it was a 916 then yeah no brainier , get it .. would very much fancy a 916 / 996 of the foggy rep triple point injection era .. but they are fetching good money .. If not one of those then a Cagiva mito is on the list believe it or not

What kind of biker are you? Well after this year we are 'fed up' bikers. Both TT and Manx trips were cancelled. No rallies. Been chatting with some lovely people on fab we'd like to meet up with and make friends. Made contact with friends from the past from fab so can't wait to get reacquainted. So yes 'FED UP BIKERS' here. Covid eh, who'd have believed it.

You can get a few hot laps in before she needs a breather. Depends on the track really, but also I'm not very nice to the bike. 125s on track should be ridden till they are nearly melting. I'm much more professional when I've taken the biker bikes round bit it's not as fun in my opinion

As soon as I could afford both I vowed never to ride in bad weather again.

For me riding a bike is for fun and there’s no fun in getting cold and wet.
