Hi folks,

It’s my first time at the bash and I’m really looking forward to it.

I’m curious about the types of machine that’ll be on the rideout so if you’d be so kind as to add your name/bike to the list below and copy into your post to start a list of the likely candidates to satisfy my curiosity.

Here’s mine as a starter for ten:

@bigtwin - Honda MSX125 (or Ducati 999)

There’s obviously a back story there!

Ian

Yes, and if I remember the story correctly, it involved the RAC (other breakdown services may have been used). Oh, and a pasty!

Did his biker mates leave him stranded? Surely not! :D

C’mon folks, help to make a curious old man happy, and, if you’re going on the ride out, provide this first timer an indication of which bikes you plan to take on the ride out.


Ian

I'll have my 250W froggy e-bike. I'll do my best.

:cry:

Sold my bike some time ago.... Dodgy left knee and hip plus short legs, I had a vision of holding bike at the lights and then collapsing in a heap......Keep thinking about another one but then see all the idiots out on the road and come to my senses.

If we still have it a PCX 125, but it is for sale so maybe not. It will give you big bike types a laugh anyway.

Not if I take a little Honda MSX125 (Grom); I’ll struggle to keep up with you!

Life is a series of phases, each different with pluses and minuses, but when the time is right .....

Nice. You’ll enjoy the NC500 on that.

Will you be bringing it to Thetford?
