Ive been riding bikes on and off now for 8 years last bike being an aprillia rsvr 1000 with a lot of carbon, polished metal and mods. Im now coming back to biking after moving house and settling down with a family so my super sportsbikes are now a thing of the past and im hopefully going to pick up a bandit, hornet or sv650s. Hopefully i can find one for sale soon and back to some meets (does the white swann bike meet in gt yarmouth still happen)

Anthony
After an RSV, isnt a hornet or SV going to feel too slow??

Unfortunately I don't know about any regular meets over your way......but someone on here will...... 8-)
Probably isnt any haha! Norwich never seems to be decent for anything
There are plenty. In better weather there is the one at Whitwell on a Friday evening. There's a regular one at route 11 bar south of Norwich. Also in the summer one at an airfield in southrepps I think.

Have you looked at an MT07? Perfect for what you want by sounds of it. Much more fun than the SV too. Theres quite a few of us in and around Norwich with an MT now, should be quite a few meet ups from March onwards.

Norwich biker here too.

Lots of good bike meets on in the warmer weather as mentioned above.

Also a really good one on Tues nights at Old Buckenham.

Not originally from Norfolk but wouldn't dream of leaving now, love the place. Great for being a biker too :)

Loads of people know me, I know many people especially in norwich the chances are that most norfolk bikers here know me personally or through connections. Reason I can not be recognised is I am known by many names and many faces, painkiller is not always the name I am known by and only 1% of people I know actually know my birth name.
