Why don't you get a hornet then?! You'll probably even find one on your drive!

And thats confirmation through that the police are closing the case.

A hornet is fun I hear, might look at those...
that sucks.

on the plus side, hornets are great fun

Nope, this weekend im in xford watching bit on the side get 3ft of hair cut off for charity


oli hasn't told me if he is coming or not yet. last i heard he'd let me know.


That was why i've ended up in a bad area, but i do have a garage, that said the garage got broken in to but they only took the two rock hoppers not the motorbikes. I couldn't risk 2/3 bikes outside the front of a house, it'd be too much temptation
so are we in wales at the same time? :teeth:

Hi all
Im not a biker but I have this one bizarre question and you may think im daft but im not sure how everythin works... lol
How does the licence scheme work for a bike??

A friend of mine had a really nice honda 250 and used to take me everywhere on it he got stopped by the police and had it impounded on the basis that his licence expired.... he hasnt got a full licence however he said that he had a full bike licence and that it 'ran out'.... I know that you have to do a cbt when you have a bike and with the L plates you are not allowed a passenger on the back so has he got confused or is there such thing as a full bike licence like the equivalence of full car licence and that the bike licence simply 'ran out'?!?

the full licences only expire after 10 years (same as a car) when you just need a new photo.

once you have passed your bike test, you have the licence for life, sounds to me like he was riding it on just a CBT.

Yeah sounds the same to me. There is a full bike test just like a full car test. You can only ride 125cc on a cbt, cannot take passengers and are not allowed on motorways. A cbt will expire after 2 years if a full test isn't done by then.

They found my bike!!!! Sophie is sort of OK. She needs a lock set (they broke the ignition barrel, fuel filler cap) and a new front wheel plus a few cosmetic things but overall, she is in good shape!

Happy days!!!

Great news! My CBR was found once but was too bad to repair. I'm glad that hasn't happened to you.

Boris - I might be about Tuesday?

Hi all
Its a sad day I have just MOT'ed the bike (Yamaha YBR 125), which I have had for about 4 years now and now I have to sell her. :'(
The reason I'm selling is because I'm moving to the other side of the country and the winters are too cold on my hands. No heated grips as the battery is way too small. She passed the MOT with flying colours though
But I WILL return to biking and get my full license at some point in the future. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Your subtle bike advertising at the same time is subtle.

Whereabouts are you moving from/to?
Heated grips are lovely but mine broke a year ago.

You riding on a CBT atm or just done your test on a small bike?

Been home for a week now. It's weird and a bit strange becoming accustomed again to the way of life in the west country. However, I put an application in for a job on Tuesday and I've got myself a trial this evening.

Biggest news though is that with the money from my Swiss job, I've been able to pay off the rest of my finance that I once had on my Triumph. Big weight off my shoulders and no longer a waste of money. That said, there's a cracking 0% deal on the new Kawasaki ZX6R at the moment. Not that I'd do it; I'd get in the neck from Leah big time!

Ah well, the weather's been decent and my Honda's been missed greatly. 3 months away from a motorcycle makes a man mad, I tell you that! First ride out was ruined by rain but the second was sublime. Made me glad that I'm on two wheels instead of four.

Hope you're all well

LOL
I'm moving from Cornwall to Cumbria.
I'm only on CBT due to money; it costs a lot to do DAS these days but at some point in the future I WILL do it. It does hurt to have to sell the bike :'( (no advertising intended)
