Somewhere there is a live clock counting down to the TT. A load of sad people are getting excited already FFS.

If my life ever becomes that sad, I will jump back on a bike too and end it all.

Two killed out for a walk on a mountain. Not even the first this year.

 

When will Scotland say enough is enough?

When will they ban this government supported blood sport?

That they enjoyed the hobby will bring no comfort to the families these selfish people leave behind.

Or maybe deaths aren't as bad if they don't happen during an activity that makes you take the long route to Tesco.

3 now......

The C15. Couldn't be any sadder after that.

It's predecessors were the C10/11/12 , the 'go to work bike' and referred to as "grey porridge " by those with more exotic machinery .

I could only afford a C 12 way back and now have what some consider desirable motorcycles but still enjoy  a bimble on a 250 C 12, speed isn't everything IMO.

I know of folk who have Goldies and Shadows who  still enjoy a ride-out on  a 125/250

out of idle curiosity what was the first bike you owned ?

I had a C11G as my first bike, it was old then and I paid a fiver for it but it did me for a year until I could afford something a bit more in keeping with a 16/17 year old's aspirations. I can only say that it got me about.

That is the Risks them Adrenalin Junkies take when they Race Around on those Bikes looking for their Adrenalin Rush.

They either become Famous Motorcycle Racers or become Darwins.
