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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I had no problems with electrics but the sports ones get very hot between your legs if you slow down. They like to travel at speed. They sound so much better than the 4 cylinder Japanese bikes.

    Thanks Dog. I do miss her. When I sold her I almost followed her down the road. Bought the bike when she had 7000 on the clock and had her 9 years. Changed the oil and filter every 3 months, constantly cleaning her. The guy rode her away and a week later wrote to him and asked for the first refusal on a resale... Two weeks later a friend telephoned me to say he had seen the MOO bike, (a nickname as the reg was MUU) in an accident and my bike was spread all over a bypass, thankfully the owner was sat on a kerb ok but sadly the bike is dead.... Wifey says if I recover ok from my next spinal surgery (very soon) she will buy me a bike, I have my eye on the BMWs1000rr, the reason, I have to have a reason to work and recover... Fingers crossed eh :up::up:

    Agree - once it's in your blood you can't leave it!

    i had a big 'off' 10 years ago thanks to a boy racer. Lost my right leg below the knee - since that I've ridden a Bullet around India, owned and sold a v-rod, gixer 750 and my most recent was a r1!

    thought I'd leave it at that but just started a new 6-month campaign to get the missus to let me have a zx10r. Watch this space!

    Thank you Terry.

    Mate, that is on my bucket list, I would love to do that, was going to arrange to go with my son but he was not interested in his bike licence. There was a guy that arranged groups to ride Honda C50's and C90's from the UK to India and hand the bikes over to the villages for doctors to get around etc. Whilst there the group volunteered in hospitals building cleaning etc.... all that fun for around £4000 and one hell of a life experience. Never managed to save the £4000 but again I would love to get involved.

    I have owned bikes since I was 16, mainly road legal trail and enduro bikes, the RD is the only pure road bike I have owned, and even raced a Maico M star 500. The old yam was bought in 1991 in boxes and was in a very sorry state.

    Once had a mate who hit a sheep on his motorbike . He nearly cut the sheep in half and there were guts everywhere ! His bike was written off .
    I did have bikes myself but I am a racer through and through so really would get nothing out of riding on the road . Sold my last road bike when my littluns arrived , don't miss it and have lost the "fire in my belly" as I have got a little older, maybe more responsible maybe ?

    Used to be. Had a RD500LC amongst others. Took it round Cadwell once on a Performance Bikes frenzy. I filled my pants as a YZF came underneath me doing at least 30mph more as I went into Chris curve. I looked into my bag of talent and found it woefully underfilled (being optimistic here - it was totally empty) at that point. I also fell off the track twice at the gooseneck but kept it upright.

    Yamaha WR200. I call it the grenade, turn the handle and hang on. It's a bit crazy, wheelie 1, 2, 3, 4. Got to get rid I'm 61 and need a hip op. Not rode for 6-9 months. Would consider an airgun deal. It's all there! Want another BM boxer sometime.
