  2. Brian and Nessie make it to the National

    National Meets
    Well, this was Nessie's first ever National. Although I managed to show my face at Dartmoor and (briefly) in Wales, this was my first time on my own 2 wheels. All I can say is, it was fantastic. I was too busy keeping the bike upright and/or having a good time to remember to take any photos, but...

  5. 2012 National Marquee?

    National Organisers
    I've just mentioned the reasoning for paying a company to provide the Marquee in the To-Do thread.. reasoning was that lots of folk are happy to put a borrowed one up, but when it comes to Sunday, most have there own tent to take down and a fair distance to travel to home. Not strictly...

  7. Varadero spares

    Varadero
    Hi I have read several times about buying Honda spares from David Silver at a " 2 or 3 week wait price". How does this work? I have used David Silver for quite a few items, handy for me as I live down the road (sort of!) from them in Gt Yarmouth. Good excuse to get the bike out! But I have...

  12. Anyone found my bottle ???

    Chatter
    Was out for a spin to the Swan in Gt. Yarmouth last night (usual meeting point on a Friday) when it really hit me that I've lost my confidence cornering :( The big off I had last year is the route cause, no doubt (50 mph corner, salty but dry roads, front wheel decides time to let go, ouch)...
