Hi fellow bikers.

#1 Post by Smithers » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:47 pm

I'm glad to see an active biker forum and not everyone has migrated to facebook and other similar media. I've never had any social media accounts except one or two biker forums in the past. I prefer to have a life and not constantly checking up on who my new friend is??
My current bike is Honda NC750x manual transmission. I wasn't too keen on it at first but have grown to really like it now. I've had many bikes in the past, English, American, Czech, and Japanese. All have been good in their day but my current bike tops the list on fuel economy for it's size.
I hope to meet some similar Honda nerds on this forum.
Cheers,
S.

I had a couple of MZ's. Old fashioned plodders but great reliability.

MZ (E.Germany) were at the top of the Eastern European food chain, then Jawa/CZ (Czech), then the Russian stuff like IZH, Ural and Dnepr. Must admit, if I could find a nice Ural combo, I could be tempted. The MZs were sadly underated - with decent tyres on 'em, they would out-handle most small Japanese bikes of the time.....I had a TS250.
