    BBC News - Michigan Central Station: The story of its rise, fall and... Found this article on the BBC website just now. I find the history of the rise and fall of Detroit's fortune fascinating.

    Not seen anything written on the subject lately - are you guys in N America getting the 750 next year?
  3. Del Mar


    Besides bikes, love my cars too (and the Mrs and kids of course!) ;) My other passion is taking my 'nearly classic' BMW E39 5 Series to the Nurburgring. Here's a couple of pro pics from last year - next visit is in a couple of weeks, going out on 26 June.

    Florida Mall - 2013

    Had to take a pic of this - saw it in the car park of the Florida Mall, off the I4, last year. A bit over the top, those wheels, don't you think?! I like big wheels as much as the next guy but, dunno.....

    Another Ride Today

    Another unseasonably glorious day for mid March today - wall to wall sun and a pleasant 19deg C. Only one thing for it - get out on the NC. Apart from my bikes, my other favourite thing is my 'nearly classic' Beemer - a 1999 E39 5 Series with factory M Tech sport pack (suspension...

    Turned 300 Miles Today

    Having been busy with work and family stuff lately, today I had to ride - well, with 19deg C and clear blue skies in mid March it would be rude not to! I've been doing my best not to exceed 3-4000 RPM up to now, but having gone past the 300 mile mark today I'll be upping it to 5K until the...

    Protecting the Tank, erm, Frunk...

    Added these this morning - Honda tank pad and three carbon effect strips either side where the side of my knees contact when riding. Cosmetic as much as practical I'll admit. Looks pretty good and goes with the black and white theme.

    Ride Out Today - Sunday 09 March

    Perfect riding weather over here today - blue skies all day with a very reasonable temp of around 18 degrees C this afternoon. Managed to squeeze in around 100 miles - just lovin' this bike more each time I jump on it and despite running in and keeping the revs to no more than 3500-4000 it...

    Keeping the Exhaust Downpipe Looking Good

    Is there any way of protecting the condition of the exhaust downpipe from getting rusty and looking plain daggy? Several used NCs I've seen had really rough looking downpipes, not helped by all the spray and crud that goes straight through the cowl gap from the front wheel. I use ACF-50...

    Rider's Seat and Belly Pan Removal

    Two questions if I may.... 1. To remove the rider's seat, I assume that the two bolts at the rear outer edge are removed and it will slide or lift out? 2. To remove the belly pan, again it looks like it's just secured by one bolt either side and it then pulls away from several rubber...
