Mrpin Needs Another Motorcycle

Recommended Posts

I feel I want to feel the flies on my face, and the hot oil down my leg again! And what's left of my hair stuck in a helmet.

Me too...

Still waiting for the price of a new Suzuki SV650.

Should be available in the spring.

Would you be safe on it? You do post here. :wacko::D

Well Mr Pin.....

I imagine that I`d get on the bike ..squeeze though 2 or 3 gears....say "bloody hell" ,,,and by the time I get to the first corner I`ll be completely used to it.

This is what usually happens.

I'm selling my Virago 535. Only around 6200 miles on the clock. Any offers?

That's a ladies' bike, and you should keep it, not that they are bad BTW, but I won't fit on! Your location is wrong. Wind that bike up a bit, and you will fall into the sea! Whereas I can go to Swindon without getting on a boat!

CD, more the side effects of the drugs they gave me...I decided to stick to cars. I get too physically tired - muscles etc - to sustain any motorcycle trips. And I decided discretion was the better part of valour. Better a car than dead or injured Bossybabe - I have enough problems!!

Mr Pin, that's what the ferry is for & it's very cheap for bikes..,

I do wonder about that myself. a lot of friends have "motorcycles in the garage" that never go anywhere! Maybe I should join the "armchair bikers"! :(

Okay Bossy, Pin and I will visit you by motorbike..............if we get round to it. It`s so difficult to decide what to buy.

I won't hold my breath then, CD. ?

Just bury your head in a oil worker's crotch.

Drilling platforms can be very touchy feely places. I reckon anyone in a flame proof boiler suit, might be a bit camp! :blink:

What's your style Pin - retro vs modern, laid-back vs upright...?

[to put it into context - the only bike I've got at the moment is my first bike, an old gsxr400, but frankly it isn't a bike I find comfortable any-more (but I'm happy in denial). What I'm after next is something like an old Guzzi - I probably fancy myself as Clint Eastwood riding around in shades, even though the reality is more like if Donald Pleasence got Steve McQueen's role in the Great Escape...]

That sounds like one of the made up vehicles out of Money by Martin Amis.

I would so love a Honda Africa Twin and a Triumph Bonneville side by side in my garage. I wouldn't need to ride them; just seeing them daily would be sufficient.

You would make an excellent armchair biker Frank. I already have one motorcycle I don't use. :blink: Just need a few more. :mellow:. Actually Frank you are a "virtual armchair biker" so outrank me in the scheme of things.

I was thinking of a bigger Harley Davidson. Something Terminator 2 like.

Mr Pin.....

How much do you intend spending on a Harley Davidson ?

An obscene amount! I've just found another motorcycle which will empty my wallet even quicker. Oh dear!

In answer to your question £10k buys a maybe ten year old big Harley with next to nothing miles on it! They are solid as the White Cliffs, and I know their insides should I have a problem.

Treat yourself to a new one

(There's too many old ones kept as 'garage' queens now ;) - Including mine, after two rebuilds, 50,000 miles, 10 countries, 4 races, and too many commutes to count)

So lets get this straight....

You intend spending 10k on a 10 ten year old HD whereas I`ll buy a brand new Suzuki for possibly £5,200 ?

Okay......I understand, it`s worth the extra money in order to lean back.

You will not understand just yet Mr Dweller. Basically these things are built for long distances and people don't go anywhere on them. A ten year old one will be like new!
