1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    My first bike was a BSA Bantam 150cc. It didn't sound anything like these.

    Ah, those were the days. Multi cylinder Honda, Gilera and MV's battling it out with Manx Norton's, BSA's and Velo singles and the odd BMW flat twin. All with open pipes and not a 2 stroke to be seen or heard, although I must admit the Kawasaki racing triples sounded amazing.

    So was mine - bloody awful, weren't they? :D
    Mine had a bent frame, just to make things interesting.

    I’d never have the balls to race such things, but I do appreciate the sounds, engineering and pure good looks of a bike.

    Awesome sound , I saw one go around Cadwell some years back at a BSB round interval . The whole place fell silent as it circulated , even better to hear live . Also had the pleasure of talking to the great Allen Millyard who created his own replica honda six at last year's NEC bike show , remarkable man.

    To be honest, that idiot wouldn't last one lap of the TT. :)

    Truly awsome. Goosebump city. I was there, I heard it, I saw it and you ain't never heard anything like it. Period.

    Not only that, the bike is an engineering marvel. Mind blowing.

    He would definitely win it and more than likely make some lap records and fastest ever speeds on the tt that probably won't be beaten while he's still alive.

    No he wouldn't even complete one lap. It takes years to learn the TT.

    Who's to say he hasn't ridden the course already something like that being who he is and what he does has GOT to appeal.

    That "idiot" as you call him has got some skills Bill not wishing to come over all condescending here "like the way your reply to my post sounds" but I think it's a pretty safe bet he'd put your riding abilities to shame .. and then some ... and mine with it .. and I consider myself a 'real good rider. This guy has no fear he's real good at what he does it wouldn't surprise me one little bit to find he's raced bikes either professionally or semi professionally at some point or another through the course of his life.
