Apologies, I haven't kept everyone as updated recently, but I had a lot of material to cover before, whereas now it's pretty much all happening as I write! So it's taking me a little longer to gather what is going on. Last Tuesday I was due to take her out for another little test ride, … Continue reading GSX take 2!
It's the day of the test ride! It's time. Let's feel how much better the beast is! I popped my jacket on, slid my helmet on, and got on the bike. It sat there ticking over quite happily while I got ready to set off, and it set off. It rode, it stopped, it seemed … Continue reading GSX600F – Spillin’ petrol.
Today i decided to take some time out, to go home to see my family in the nice quiet place I grew up. Every time I'm here I take a moment to go to the cliffs and just loose myself. It never fails to make me feel at peace.
He's down! The savior of all the days is down again. First up, where that clutch cable went wouldn't have been to bad if I'd have just opened my eyes! And the nut with a slice out of the site! Beautiful. Everything back together, carbs on, now just need to pop the air box on! … Continue reading GSX600F – Are we there yet?

As it transpires this place … Continue reading GSX600F – More of the same

I popped the forks back in, tightened everything up that I'd loosened and prepared myself to get the wheel back on. I set about double, no, triple checking the correct forks were on the correct … Continue reading gsx600f – What comes off must go back on!
So the title is definitely the lesson I learnt during this stage of the bike! .....I got impatient, I insured it, and took it for an MOT ... of course it failed! On a number of minor things, and the major thing was the fork oil was leaking, which baffled me because apparently they'd not … Continue reading GSX600f – Patience is a virtue.
So, I bought this motorbike, yes I actually paid money for the thing! Nothing ever seems too bad until you really get into it and realise "Oh Fuck ... That's not good!". But it isn't too bad, it runs! And that's something some of my bikes have failed to do before this! So I thought … Continue reading GSX600Fucked.
So it's your first blog. You want to come in with a bang really don't you? A big gesture that screams "I'M HERE!" Unfortunately I have no such thing. Not yet anyway. I have ideas don't get me wrong, but it's a bit early to start writing some of the things I would like too, … Continue reading A little hello.
