another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Saturday, 5 February 2011

called in to see rob at racing lines in derby this morning, i've ordered a couple of brembo brake fluid reservoirs off him for the sporty project so i can junk the hideous harley items, just my luck, they hadn't turned up, while we were talking i spied a trail tech vapour powersports computer in the display cabinet at the front of the shop, it's a combined speedo, tacho, temp gauge, odometer, clock and lap timer in a really neat little unit, it's about 4"x2" and only weighs a few ounces, he was going to fit it to his honda rs 250 race bike and had even bought the optional aluminium protector case for it, 'you not using that vapour-tech unit then rob?', 'no mate, i've picked up an original n.o.s. honda rsc tacho so i'm fitting that instead', 'nice that mate, how much do you want for both?', 'give us a oner and it's your's, absolute bargain and means i can scrap the big, heavy stock clock, result.

  2. brilliant!, thought this comment was a wind up until i realised that mr anonymous was serious and everyone else i know, or who posts comments on the blog, has the basic literacy skills to be able to construct a sentence, what's the problem mate?, are your webbed fingers holding you back?, i agree that the r6 is a very good machine, i've ridden a few in the past, but i reckon the triumph 675 is a better bike if you are aiming for the razor sharp, totally focused sportbike experience, i'm not interested in owning a machine like the r6, yes, they are fast but living in derbyshire like i do there's a 50mph speed limit on all of the best roads and a heavy police prescence so i don't have the need for a supersport 600 in my collection, if i'm living in the past then so be it, i can borrow up-to-date machinery, have a blast and hand them back when i'm done, i get as much pleasure fettling my bikes and trying to improve them as i do riding them, i doubt you even know what a camshaft is or where it is, or how to change the oil or change the brake pads or check your own tyre pressures so don't be telling me how shit my bikes are son, i bet your brother can't get near his bike when he parks it up anywhere for all the super trick bits on it, carbon fibre tax disc?, [i'm sure you have missed 'holder' from the end of this sentence], an arrow can?, [yawn, the japanese spend a fortune getting the best performance out of a bike and have to meet emmision and noise regulations], tail tidy? but no, i bet the masses are swooning at the rim tape, go ahead youth, fill your boots! as for me being bald?, how observant of you!, i wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it, anyway, according to my mum, i have got as much hair as anyone else, [except YOUR mum's top lip], the trouble with my hair is that it's growing out of my ear's, nose and arse!, feel free to come back and comment anytime sunshine, just one thing, if you ever kick my bike over i promise i'll bite your nose off and eat it.

  5. Your spelling and grammar genuinely makes me sick...
    The gene pool obviously doesn't have enough chlorine in it.
    You are a shitbag.

  7. yes - and your credibility to comment on bikes is directly related to the amount of hair you have ?
