As in title. With the nicer weather here and weekends in abundance who on here has a motorbike and where are you located. Maybe we can sort out a meet or ride out, as I know I would rather do some travelling for a meet on the bike rather than the car, more fun, less hassle with traffic and a fraction of fuel cost.

Also who is going to bmf bike show in Peterborough next month.

So bike, location and ideas welcome here

Cant you keep both Craig, winter meets are more fun in a car.

Same as that Andy, k2 gsxr600 although I ride through winter too, cheaper than the car to and from work and 10 mins to get home through traffic instead of 45 mins. Upside down? Erm sorry no idea there, I not tried uploading pics for an age

Ah fair enough pal. 1000 mmmm beast. I'll be moving up to 1000 next year some time I guess, something a little less revvy as constantly through the box looking after clutch gets tiring sometimes. So when you getting the two wheels mate

Not sure if it qualifies but I have a Gilera DNA....

Last time I checked, Nicky @ Rob were motorised too.

Have you tried rotating them, saving them "as is" in another file and then uploading them via that file? :sneaky:

Good call on a K6 that was the last bike I owned, previously had the K5 both from new. Still have the rear mudguards and the pillion seats unused in my storage shed:whistling:

Craig don't bother with gear indicator. The more you ride the better idea you'll have of what gear your in.
If you want a better engine for town, ie low torque, go for a twin. No need to rev so much then.

It's me being lazy really I usually know what gear I'm in but every now and again will drop to first instead of second which isn't massive prob but annoying lol. Not a twin fan if I'm honest, I'll upgrade to something bigger at some point more than likely the gixer 750 or 1000 and u can be lazier with gear changes lol

You can also try re gearing the bike via the sprockets for acceleration or top speed. It can also alter rpm range at which point you change gear

As Rob says why bother with a gear indicator:confused: Although it is built in on the K5 and 6 Didn't really use it. As a rider you should know what gear your in. What I did like though was the adjustable peak warning light:twisted:

Just buy a cheapo and try it, see if you like it. For £10 you can junk it if you don't like it lol

Ooo mine has adjustable peak rev and built in lap timer. Avg speed and current top speed :-B
