Evening all

#1 Post by bill55bill » Mon Dec 10, 2018 11:14 pm


Stumbled across this forum whilst searching for information about insurance claims.

Unfortunately I had my beloved Yamaha XJ6S nicked from my front garden last week in the middle of the night, had had it 8 years from new, am so p***ed off it's untrue!

Anyway, good to be among like minded souls.

2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Welcome to TMBF mate. ....... 8-)

Bikes are disappearing at a frightening rate at the moment.....hopefully your insurance will pay up sharpish and you can get it replaced.
I feel the need....the need for Speed......Triple

Find somewhere else to store it, they will likely return.
