Since no one has posted since 2015, and my bike recently passed its first MoT :toot:

I thought it would be a good time to create the Motorbike Thread 2.

Firstly a big thanks to Preezy for the original motorbike thread which you can view here: Link

Perhaps you are new to biking or want to learn?

Well here are some resources to help, and of course ask any questions you'd like:

First :toot:

Here is a picture of my bike

2016 Street Triple R

:msgreen:


Would love a cafe racer or a scrambler/adv and my next biking goal is to get to a track day to really experience what the 675 is capable of!

Now. Show me yours :capnscotty:

Thanks for the acknowledgement, Kezzer. Sadly my motorbike dream is on the shelf, lack of funds and a young family :(

nice one Kezzer!

i got my CBT March last year.
ive currently got a 2015 KTM Duke 125 - i dont think i actually have any pics of it so heres a stock. mines like that but i have a different exhaust on it.
done about 4500 miles in the last year.

i want to pass my A licence (im 30 so no need to do A2), and then pick up a bigger bike in the next 6 months or so. completely undecided on what to get next. currently bouncing between the Yamaha XSR750, Husqvarna Svartpilen, or the Royal Enfield Interceptor
post that i want to do a motorbike tour of Japan!

I did have a Triumph Speed Four but the brakes snapped and I crashed into a McLaren a couple of years ago.
I miss having a bike but don't have time/money/space for another one right now. :cry:

oft! so long as you were alright Sats!

With any luck you will be able to get into again in the future. I honestly don't know what I would do without being able to get on the bike.

@ Preezy, thats understandable mate - with any luck there will be a Harley Davidson Forty Eight for you during your midlife crisis :P

Nice KTM! - always liked the sporty look, and even at a 125cc i'd imagine its still bags of fun!

I really like the look of the Husqvarnas. This review of the Vitpilen 701 makes me want one so bad




The XSR750 looks cool too, has a sort of retro vibe about it without being as retro as the Royal Enfield.

Out of interest what draws you to the enfield? If I was going for a retro bike i'd probs choose the T120 bonneville :shifty:

Oh nice, I will need to check his video out, usually like his stuff especially the bike care/maintenance guides.

I just purchased my first mod for the bike:

Should clean the back end up nicely, also going to remove the rear foot pegs as well.
