Hi

#1 Post by Firefly » Sat Nov 24, 2018 8:39 am

Hi, I live in lincoln and passed my DAS back in February after a twenty five year gap riding bikes. (Had various 125’s in my much younger years) I’ve been riding a low mileage really good condition ER5 to gain experience this year and will be looking for a Honda VFR X-Runner or possibly a z1000sx for next year. (Keeping my options open and will be test riding various bikes over the winter)

I’m hoping to find friends for ride outs in the Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire area or provide a pillion seat if we get on really well?

Hi @Firefly nice intro :thumb:
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.
