Re: Gixxer riders in the midlands

yeah pretty chilly. been out twice on the sunny days this week. must be honest i know im 1/2 throttle cos of the cold and damp weather but im thinkin i should have got the 1k for more torque. hopin spring and full trottle puts a bigger smile on. have to do a midlands spring meet anyone up for it....

Re: Gixxer riders in the midlands

im up for that.

id love some more sunny days. the cold doesnt bother me too much, its the wet stuff that pisses me off, oh that and gritters...
bring on the spring.....

that 750 should be sweet, wait till you get chance to ring its neck!!!!!! My 600's old and tired and thats still mental, the 750 should be a nice blend of usuable power and enough torque..... what colour you go for?

Slight disagreance with you there. Good site? There's nowhere near the amount of decent accurate info, or helpful people. I "spoke" to one guy I spotted in person (and his really obnoxious other half) from that forum and got noses turned up at me for mentionning this site. Apparently they're the biggest posters on that forum (with approx 1200-1500 posts, and barely any decent posts with a point - I checked). Says it all really.

There may well be more info there regarding UK meets but that's about all it's good for IMO. For a forum to just generally use, you won't catch me there.. It really is a pity this forum isn't more popular with the brit crowd
