Time to dust the motorbike off ….
dibs i had a duke 690 and i changed out the front sprocket from a 17t to a 16t (or vice versa) and it took away the juddery feeling at slow speeds and made it into a perfect town bike. Light & nimble.
Ha ha, no thanks I’d rather keep it as it is, (brilliant on the open road) and just avoid going into town. 😀Posted 7 years agoepicsteveMember
Only one of mine is currently road legal but I’ve been thinking that it’s time to get it out of hibernation:
All the others need MOT’s and other bits and bobs done, but I’d like to get my XBR500 into use again as it’s great for summer evening runs down into the Scottish Borders.Posted 7 years agouberscottSubscriber
Nice KTM! That’s the 990, right?
Yep, it’s the time for all the people who’ve not ridden over the winter to come back out again. I’ve no problem with that per se, but it’s the eejits that think they can immediately ride at the same level they were at last September, after 6/7 months of nothing. I’ve seen some appalling riding in the last week or so!Posted 6 years agoRVMember
yeah, it’s the 990.Posted 6 years ago
I commuted for years until this year and always found that even as a seasoned rider, I always struggled with adapting my riding angles with the changing seasons and conditions. Once, thumbs have healed i’ll be out for a wobble, though i did ride to the MCN bike show the other month so shouldn’t be too rusty.
Really looking forward to see the power ranger leaving his right foot hanging too long while attempting to drag race everyone from the traffic lights…. always makes me laugh.
