Not a new member but an old one returning. In December 2013 I was knocked of my NTV700 which had replaced my NC700X. The bike was totalled and I had serious injuries to my right foot which is still causing me a few problems. I could no longer mnage to move my CBF1000 around so that was sold. I...
Having just spent 3 1/2 weeks in hospital awaiting an operation to fix multiple fractures to my right foot following being t-boned by a car driver I can only stress the importance of wearing the correct gear at all times. I was only riding home from work but had proper bike boots on. The surgeon...
In todays MCN they listed the5 cheapest new bikes on sell in the UK 3 of which cost in excess of £1000. It doesn't seem that long ago (although I suppose it was) that I bought my first Beemer and everybody said "over a grand for a bike you must be Flippin mad or or maybe the first word was...
Can you imagine the look on the insurance company employee when he read this motorist claim form :)

Sadly it looks as though my bike riding days are through. My wife heard today that she is redundant and as we exist on my money and hers pays for the bikes and holidays it looks as though the bikes will have to go. at 65 she is hardly likely to get another job
On the UK forum there are now quite a few postings regarding corrosion on NCs especially with paint flaking off the swinging arm. I know our climate is bad but surely the bikes should have survived at least one winter without this
In this weeks issue of Motor Cycle News there is an article by Wes Siler a British born journalist now based in L.A. who also happens to be a friend of my wife’s. The article is about off road riding and the NC features strongly in it with very positive comments
Saw this thread on another forum and it resulted in some interesting and/or amusing posts. If you cold have a fantasy ride without the boring constraints of time & money what would it be.

Today I arranged to trade my NC against a new Honda Deauville a model which sadly Honda are dropping.
As I find this forum interesting and mainly friendly if it's OK by Dennis and the majority of members I would like to stick around
Whilst getting a hugger fitted to my CBF1000FA at Kent M/Cs I met up with Dave from the UK forum. We were both looking at the new bikes and a black Deauville in particular. I could be very tempted depending on finances
Reading a copy of Practical Sports Bike magazine I came across a mention of a bike that has it's fuel in the bellypan and a storage area in the dummy tank. Storage area smaller than the frunk but the same basic idea. The bike is a 1997 Bimota BB1 Supermono. Another bike that had a false tank...
I want to improve the headlight on my X but as it's my commuter bike I don't want to go to the expense ( + I don't have the expertise) of a HID conversion. Has anyone just fitted a better bulb and if so which one and how much of an improvement was it?
