    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do. I dont think its going to be easy, most of it has been a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back so far. Im...

    Suzuki GT750 EFI Special

    Thread Starter: Kettlekev

    I am new to the forum so bear with me on posting issues. Over two years ago, having just restored an old GT750, I decided it might be fun to take one of those bikes and push the design as far as I could. Two years down the line and pending paint and final EFI work I have this..... I...

    Okay I'll start the new year's thread this time to save Merv doing it. Got a big shuffle in teams for this one boys, lets hope Ducati have finally cracked on to a good combination with Miller and Bags after so many years. I'm also hoping Aprilia will have fixed their engine gremlins from...

    Random thoughts on luggage

    Thread Starter: pritch

    A recent question on KB has caused me to reflect on the various forms of luggage I’ve used with bikes. If you’ve got any experience or thoughts on the topic feel free to add to this. On my Brit bikes I just used a crude back pack. It did most of what I needed. Just as well I didn’t need much....

    The KTM 790 Duke after 2 years

    Thread Starter: Blackbird

    It’s been two years today since I picked up the Duke 790 from Boyds in Hamilton. There was a lot of thought before committing to purchase, mainly because KTM has had a spotty reputation for reliability on various models. I wanted something light as a nod to short legs and being in my early 70’s,...

    Come and join us as it will be a fun day for all, spectators are free and there will be an appearance from Ian Wilkins with his Top Fuel Drag Bike Afterburner 2.

      Which date is correct? This one or the other one you posted for the 3rd? Or both?

      My guess would be neither. Maybe the 16th of November this year? It is a Sunday.

      Edit: Link confirms it as 16/11/14

      I want to compare my Z1000 with that cool looking new Z1000 I keep seeing in Hamilton motorcycles.... Also this time I have a new WOF, new rego and new brake pads all round, should be good to go.
