What a load of ***** spoken there!! Have had shoei's and Arai's. currently using a RX7RR4. Noisy, mists up, drafty when it's cold causing tears in my eyes! Have a HJC as a pillion helmet! £140! Fantastic helmet. Exubes Quality! Has breathe guards and all sorts that the Arai does not have. Now looking for a HJC to replace my Arai with! The £40 bargain is not a £40 helmet you fool(Sicknote)!!! They are market leaders in the biggest country in the world! If you get it wrong there..you are fu**ed!! Anyway sicknote, you spend £500 and enjoy it..me, I'm gonna save a **** load and have a great helmet for not much...and put the savings to a holiday! Regards everyone!
I've not used my Gixxer for a few years now - I bought it in Hong Kong, some 11 years ago and it's been a great bike as well - you'll probably notice a few modifications though (if you clicked the autoshite link?) ... still in progress but was put on hold when I moved to the USA in 2001..:whistling: I'm sure it's only done 32,000km as well, which is nothing for these engines.
- Shhh, no-one will notice. :thumbsup: - Wow, a genuine little piece of Scot/British biking history there. - He he he, I used to have a real thing for X7's (I had 3 of the little b*ggers), great bike. In fact I used to have a thing for 2 strokes in general with several mates with RDs & KHs (I never had the Kawa triple myself but I've owned the whole range of Suzook GTs at one time or another - excepting the 750, which my brother-in-law had). Had a nice stint on RDs too, air colled & LCs......but my bro stuck with the 2 strokes the longest & had 2 x RD500 & 1 x RG500, boy does he wish he'd held on to 1 of them now. Now I have a deep & meaningful (and lasting) love affair with my Gsxr 1100w. The last of the monsters! :w00t:
Bit of a threadjack going on here I suppose...:whistling: Yeah I also had an S reg KH250 triple and in 1990 bought Steve Hislops old RD250LC - which my mate has totally restored to factory condition - still with Steve's (RIP) name on the V5 :thumbsup: got to be worth a few bob I think? Here is a link over at Autoshite with my X7 :thumbsup: ]http://autoshite.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3344
LOL Yeah, the rivalry between the FS1E boys & the AP50, great days. Then on to various 125s, 185s, 200s & 250s - all on 'L' plates & you never had to worry about taking your test in a set time-scale. Lots of 2 strokes back then too, KHs, GTs & RDs. Brakes that didn't like working too good in the wet & tyres that lasted but were hard & made out of plasticine (Avon Speedmaster 2 anyone? :whistling: :oops: ). Nice times. :thumbsup: :)
