Someone make me bike home to revise please?

My fathers chain is awful so after my exams i think i'm going to have to sort that out, and he can use the bandit in the mean time. Or do it himself, but he probably won't.

Thankyou Talya for putting up with my speeding and indecisiveness

Its because he never gets round to it. Porbably didn't help the 500 ish miles i've done but sounds like its been out a while, my mother says its been clunking for a bit too. I really should stop trusting him when he says its fine

Worse person for that, my brother...

We were out for a ride one day and he heard a grinding from his gearbox, after him checking it he decides to ring the RAC. When they get there, the Rac guy takes out look at it, goes back to his van, gets some chain lube , lubes the chain and goes back to the van, i was PISSING myself laughing at this point, brother still had to fill out the paperwork etc afterwards but was hilarious...

I've been almost as bad, was using my 125 to ride to work and back, 8/9am starts 8/10pm finishes, one day to work i think, my clutch is sticking on or something because my engine is revving but the backwheel is not working, when i stop quickly to have a look at the bike, i realise my chain was so loose it was starting to jump...

Luckily though, i didn't make an idiot out of myself by calling the RAC, and i still got to work on time, needed a new chain/sprocket though....

I think a street triple is my dream bike.

It's not nice of you to ditch Talya like that :p:

Obviously you far out-skilled the inferior rider.. But ninjas are still great bikes

I was good(ish) earlier with her round the M25, only nearly lost her once when i was dancing to my music.

Honestly it was bad, aggressive, fast riding and he probably decided he was safer nowhere near me, which would be true.

I like ninja's in blue but not keen on the sitting position, but again i think they fall under pretty bikes. Oh and thankyou
