Default Hi <WAVES> from Birmingham

Hi peeps, how the devil are you all?

Well what can I say, I'm from the east of Birmingham, been riding since I was 16 with a few breaks here and there. Been off the road now since 2010 but hoping to get my ride back on the road before the year is out.

Don't be shy, say hi xx

My apologies, welcome Madam/Ms/Miss/Mrs or whatever designation you choose (cant be too careful in these day of out of control PC)

We are a bit of an eclectic mix of old farts here and not much for standing on ceremony, unless there is beer involved, if you just treat us like an annoying brother a am sure we will all get along famously.

Welcome Raven, I must say it will be a lovely change to listen to someone new. Maybe we'll get a bit of culture. Now fellas you will have to mind your P's & Q's from now on......

Thank you. I'm not too sure about being able to add a little class, I'll try my best but I can see already it's going to be a bit of a toughie that one

Thanks, I have a spare engine (just in case she blows) for her too that I managed to pick up a few years back. I would've prefered the spoked wheels though. As far as I believe everything on it is original apart from the exhausts, mirrors (I have the originals) and the sissy bar.

She handles really well too, probably due to the Avon Venoms I had fitted. Tons of grip on corners and with these tyres I've had it almost as low as the foot rest but wasn't brave enough to all out on the sparks lol. She'll also red line all the way through to the needle stop which I believe is in excess of 14,000 revs. I don't know though as the clocks on these only read as far as 10k. But yes, she'll definitely red line without screaming at me to stop lol

I was being weaned off British bikes and had the ancestor of your bike (engine), a Honda CB500/4 about 1972-3. Then they grew the engine to 550 then later 650.

Still don't think the Jap rice burners will catch on though...

Tidy that. Very similar to the CM and CX customs we got here. Had three CM's myself as a young oik.

No doubt you will receive the terms and conditions shortly, however I do need to point out that it is joint enterprise that Mr Tuck is also involved in.

If you care to get microscope you might be able to read the small print
