    Another question - how does the CBT work? Is it a one day training?

    What bike is it exactly?

    CBT is basically one day of training which involves some basic maneuvering (normally in a car park or some such), talks about safety etc and then a road ride around the local area.

    If all is well, you get your certificate.

    Niiiice bike.

    You ever go adventure riding./offroading on it?

    (Original post by JC.)
    They've gone up a lot lately.
    I bought my Kevlar lined RST jeans 2 years ago for 60 quid when such things weren't very popular. Same shop asking nearly £150 for them now!
    I paid £100 for Daggins 6 years ago but they went up in price so bought £100 Hood Jeans last year when i replaced them.

    Draggins were good quality and survived a 50mph crash but the flies broke after a year ish. I did gain weight which may not have helped.

    (Original post by ScottScott)
    Yeh, I noticed the vast increase in price.
    I have seen some cheaper ones around but Draggin Jeans do seem to command a higher price.
    Draggins are the highest quality apparently and they do have more styles and look more like normal clothes and have nicer looks.

    Is 12,000 a lot of miles for a 50cc bike?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Depends on the age tbh. What are the exact details of the bike?

    My 50cc bike had done around that but over 10 years it wasn't much.

    Thanks! Been on a couple of gravely green lanes, but nothing really true off-road, which is why I bought the road-biased one instead of the XC.

    I do rate Draggins though. I always find that jeans tend to flap about too much though while I am at higher speeds and start riding up my leg, which is irritating!

    What do you ride?

    I ride a Fazer 600 primarily but have also got a CRF230 for greenlaning and enduro racing.

    Also used a KTM LC4 before which was lovely on a green laning trip to spain a few years back.

    My dad has an 1100GS and is very into adventure riding.

    You should offroad more. It's great fun and the tigers are great bikes for it.

    I never noticed jeans riding up as boots cover the bottom and the top is tight as i have big thighs.

    Maybe I'll have to look into getting a new pair, mine are pretty old and ragged.

    I'm going to be heading out next summer to europe I think so I'll hopefully head out and do a bit of green laning before that, been really wanting to do some.

    You got any trips lined up at all?

    Tuck 'em in your boots.
    You don't get a cold leg that way.

    You definitely should hit up some green laning. You'll be surprised how many places there are all over the country to go.

    I have no trips lined up tbh.

    Was considering a European break at some point to maybe encompass a motogp round but the gf doesn't ride or want to be a passenger so we'd probably fly anywhere we went.(She's awesome in many other ways though)

    Tuck them into your boots is my normal option.

    It's better when they don't ride, means you get a chance to go out by yourself, and they can't complain about your speed!

    300+miles yesterday round the peak district as i wanted to show fall3n snake pass. It's been ages since we've just gone somewhere, AND europe in a month and 1 day! :woo:

    Adding to the jeans comment - I've just bought 2 pairs of Sartso's for £75 each. But that's because I got someone in America to buy them for me and ship them....

    I like yours tiger, I think that is also what my uncle went out and bought after parting with his 929 blade.

    Nic and I ride out together. Lots of fun.
    I don't see why anyone would complain about your speed - not unless you're one of those idiots that does 100mph+ everywhere.

    Jesus Christ... I can't even imagine how... I mean, maybe not? I don't know anything, I just know I wouldn't want to do 12,000 miles on a 50cc bike. How old is it?

    Haven't heard anything. The police were clear they weren't going to pursue it (even though I think the bloke wanted to!) my insurance says if he contacts them then they'll contact me.

    I've got the E-system Scotoiler and I can recommend that, its pretty useful with the electronic display.
    I had the V-system before, which is the plain old vacuum system and that worked well too.

    Depends how much cash you have!
