Gidday guys, long time no see. I changed my phone and lost the app I was using, for the life of me I can't remember which one held the access to the forum??????????.

Finally got my work laptop back so can get to access things a little more now (kids have claimed the house PC as their sole property, dad misses out, hehehe)

The bike is all done, on the road and clocking up the K's. Son is enjoying the freedom, he still doesn't quite get the 'going for a ride' bit. He has the view you ride to 'go' to a destination. Either way he is still learning and clocking up the Km's which is a good result. We have been out and about often and slowly increasing his endurance. He's keen to get a cruiser as loves the seating layout, sound and looks.

Amazing wee machine really, it takes some punishment and never really misses a beat.

We bought our son a project bike for Xmas,. It was a forgotten about sorry looking 2003 Yamaha XT225. After a month of toil the wee beastie is all done and running like a top ready for the usual legal testing for road worthiness. For a young fella he's done a great job, very proud of his work. Next step is to sit his licence, then daddy son time on the road 👍.

Oh there's plenty of room in the garage for all sorts. But alas the funds are somewhat shallow, hahahaha.


Still want an NR750 👍

Split drive belts and destroyed tyres, sounds like you'd better change to an Africa Twin or so, if you want to change to the right manufacturer anyway. At least the right amount of cylinders, that F6 has far too many pots for you. winky5a

Hehehe, yep an AT would be a good choice, I love the look of
Em. However not a good choice for pillioning, a tad too snug and cramped.

Yep the the fb6 is the right brand, a true blue Honda. No doubt will have some similarities to a CBR................ bullet proof reliability and sensible maintenance, hehehe.

That said, my darling wife (aka the bank manager) has just declined the fb6 application................. she likes the noise, bling, power and comfort of the big Vulcan, Bugger, I miss read that one 😄

I've tried all the usual husband trickery, you know the ones, plenty of talking up the bike, showing pretty pics, visit to the bike shop, talking to owners, but alas her love of the big Vulcan wins over. Bugger, I'll try again year year, 👍


Not to worry, the Vulcan is still a great beautiful beastie to hammer the road with and scare little children and their dogs (interpreted as: Harley owners and their bikes, hehehe)

👍

Good to hear things are rosy up your way. Yeah Bugger about the season eh, you can hang on to that one for a while 😜. The weather has been good lately, bike, well, not so great. So far I've destroyed a rear tyre (literally come apart in chunks?!?!?), split a drive belt (bloody stones) nuked a rear set of pads (liner split causing odd breaking feel) and dropped a load of oil due to a filter seal failure. Has cost me a small fortune right on Xmas, something I hadn't banked on so the budget took a hit. Bike now all sorted, waiting on the flaming rain to stop now hahahaha.

Btw, been eyeing up Honda FB6 lately, lovely machines.

All Technical Issues / Forks seals
« on: August 31, 2016, 20:23:49 PM »
Are you running air in the forks Kev? I had an issue with leaking seals due to worn fork tubes.

In stead of replacing the tubes, i installed longer spring spacers, added additional oil, decent seals and the issue was resolved. Until one of the tubes got a rust pit that lifted the chrome off......... But thats a whole other story

Yeah we moved closer to my wifes work as she does shift work (12hr shifts) on the ambos, so made things safer for her after long days/nights. We moved south by 45km so my work commute is longer. However that is a breeze in the Big Merc, smooth as and quiet. Great house too, bigger inside, bigger outside and has the all important two bay garage with large workshop area. Needs a fair bit of work ad last owners done nothing letting trees over grow EVERYTHING. The chainsaw has had a fair work out since we got here attempting to tame things, haha.

Yeah thanks for the getting old comment, crikey I felt it at times too. By golly its easy to take ones health for granted until something happens.

Gee wizz, an eye operation. I didn't realise there was a cure for being a blatantly 'one eyed' Honda fan, hehehe. Sincerely hope the eye has come right, i did see a FB pic of you with the patch. Part from that, hope you have been keeping well and getting some saddle time on those mighty Honda's of yours.

Crikey, I've just realised I haven't dropped C a message in while!. Hope he is keeping well.

Make the most of the sun while you have it, I would
Like it back soon so I can enjoy some summer time biker bliss 👍😄
