Ay up you lot,
Haven't been on here for a couple of years so thought I'd log on and say hi and hope you're all ok, I've still got both the R and RU and run them every year, I went to santa pod early this year with the RU and ran a 10.5 second quarter mile, next time I go ill have to put a longer arm in as couldn't keep the front end down, had a good time anyway bit of an experience.
Just started to get out a bit on them now since Boris relaxed things a bit and I've come out of isolation, my misses tested positive for this covid, didn't surprise me working on the respiratory ward for the NHS, she's ok now just lost her sense of test and smell, I know she ain't kidding cos I dropped a right belter the other night and she didn't flinch 😂😂😂😂, anyway hope you lot are are ok, stay safe 👍

Good to see you back Dave. My last bike went 2 years ago. Replaced with CLS55 AMG.
Surprising how many got the C-19. Both my sons-in-law, one daughter, my wife and probably me.
People out there seem to be rather more unlocked than BJ wanted. But hey.

Hi Teego,
hope you all made a good recovery, I don't think it'll be long until its all back to normal, so you're not riding no more? Don't you miss it, couldn't do without a bike me, I've been taking the kids out on my old man's bsa golden flash, my misses doesn't want them going out on busa or TL for some reason but local runs on the old English is ok ish, my lad is 15 and now wants a bike when he's 16, bet you can guess how that went down at tea time round the table😂😂
Can't figure out how to upload pics on here anymore as photo bucket isn't playing ball with me,
if anyone is interested in the few projects I've been on over the past few years here a link to my Instagram page,
Stay safe 👍👍👍

Bike had to go - bodyfucked. Mine not the bike.
CLS55 AMG is an awesome substitute.
Stock 475bhp, 700nm torque, 4.2 secs 0-60, 155mph limiter.
Had a custom dyno remap last year.
Now 520bhp, 770nm, total derestrict. On the dyno Phil took it to 183mph in 4th. When I asked him why he didn't go to 5th, he said my tyres were only rated to 186mph. He reckoned the car would run 190 most days and 200 on a good one. All I know is it ran to 170 in Germany with lots more to come before coming up on traffic.
Best etc

Hi Dave, glad you remembered us. Hope everyone gets well. Played the teenager wanting a bike game myself...

Me to Mum: can I have a bike?
No

Dad, can I have a bike
Of course 😂. Bloke at works selling one 👍

Couldn’t say a lot to my lad eitheras I bought him the RGF125 project when he was 14. He then went into peds paranoid paranoid paranoid and later cars and 4x4 off roading

He’s 28 tomorrow but still not took his bike test so think that ships sailed til maybe later in life

Teego, that's impressive 👍 bet it isn't good on the old mpg but who cares life's for living hey, bought myself a tidy mitsubishi evo 5 to play around with in the summer months only 350bhp but weighs 1250kg so quite quick but not 180mph quick 😂😂😂 yeah gotta look after your body if I hurts to ride its not enjoyable

Stig, yeah good to get back on and have a chat, I still chat to John via WhatsApp and email sending each other funny videos and stuff 😂😂
To be fair I hope my lad does the same and just moves on to cars as I know it's dangerous for bikers out there and it's usually someone else's fault, rather keep them safe but don't want him missing out either, as a parent I think we'll always worry about them hey, we've got a pitbkie we use down on the fields so he does get to mess about on them at least 😉

Ayup Dave.

First thing Dave. Use Imgur.com for your photos. It's easy to use once you find your way around the site.

Nice to see you on here again. I'm surprised you can find the time with all the projects you've got going on I don't know how you do it. I'm very impressed with those stainless steel gates you've just knocked up. thumbsup Hows the Busa project coming on? It looked a bit of a sorry state when you sent me those photos of it.

Me and the missus are doing our best to avoid this covid19 Virus. Our neighbours daughter caught it but she's on the younger side of the scales so survived it ok. Another one of our neighbours granddaughter caught it but luckily escaped it's claws.

I've promised to get my daughter a bike for a few years now but with life and other things getting in the way it never happened. My Missus (Jen) saw this Suzuki Bandit advertised and to cut a long story short we ended up buying it for our daughter. Our daughter had no idea we'd bought it for her. When we came home Jen and I were sat watching A&E on TV and the first victim was a motorcycle accident. Jen put her hands to her head and said oh no what have we done. Jen can't stop worrying about it now. laugh laugh laugh

Take care and stay safe you lot out there. thumbsup

To paraphrase someone ( and it's not Robin Williams) normality is a crutch for ordinary people.

Pilninggas, yeah still got it, it's my favourite one, haven't had anyone loose me on it yet even these BMW RRs can't pull away, I let them know its 29 years old when we pull up 😂😂😂
