Re: Your bikes?

Well, I've done you all !!
I've got a Adly 50 Silverfox, with plastic glove compartment, real working lights and ultra lightweight black/white stickers.
It's so fast they had to limit it to 30 mph for my own safety.
No, honestly, I have one of these. I ride it to and fromt he train station every day (about a mile)

Re: Your bikes?

Hi guys, i started off with a scooter .. boring i know but you have to start somewhere .. then i passed my test and got an old yam rd 250dx , the one with the coffin tank sprayed it black took the baffles out and streetfighter'd it. Things you do when ye young .. got a kawasaki gpz 600r after that .. Then bought my kreg black 900 fireblade .Had a full stainless micron exhaust k and n and carbon and polished bits, braided hose's and so on. Then had to have 4 knee opp's 3 on left 1 on right ,so had to sell the blade. Then decided to get back into biking again so bought a 400 blade in urban tiger colours and more or less had the same mod's as the other blade. I haven't got a bike now, knee's to knackered !..
