Swaton Egg Throwing

Only in Lincolnshire - the World Egg-throwing Championship. Not a 'ride out' as such, but a day out involving motorcycles. :) Also named 'Swaton Vintage Day' which was more interesting, if not as daft. Some nice kit on show though and as is usually the case with these small village events, a wonderf...

Re: Hood biking jeans.

Hi Richard Can't help re Hood but after watching some reviews from MotoLegends (wordy but thorough) ended up buying some Rokker jeans for my US trip last year. Thankfully not yet destruction tested but very comfortable and very happy with them so far. All the best Ian Thanks Ian - I dare say we onl...

Hood biking jeans.

Hi all, Need a bit of a re-fresh with some of my biking gear, one main item being my jeans. Been taking a close look at some of the quality denim stuff on the market and, trying my best to read through the advertising hyperbole, it would seem that Hood get rated highly. Anyone have an experience of ...

Al.


Sadly not, Al. I suppose the F900R is quite nice (and it clearly has its fans) but I'm really not keen on the looks. 'Over designed' is one description I would use - not as much as the latest MVs (which are a visual dog's dinner imho) admittedly.

Re: Hello (again) from darkest Lincs

Hi Richard, that`s a really nice manly name BTW. Cool to hear from you and your ambition to possibly get back to old habits. All of us are nearer to scoring life`s goal so it would not be remiss to follow your wants. :wink: Chris Thanks Chris - I'm just getting round to sorting some test rides at a...

Hell's bells, Bailey - I know folk often like to move away from the Smoke but Aberdeenshire's really moving away!

Hope all's well. :)

Re: Hello (again) from darkest Lincs

Thanks chaps :) Been taking a wander round some local dealers these past few days - I'm so out of touch with what's out there I don't think I recognised many current models at all, especially the Japanese stuff. Doubt I'll get anything before I'm fixed at Glenfield but I'm enjoying scanning the ads ...

Re: Hello (again) from darkest Lincs

Thanks fellas - great to hear back from you. :) Before any decisions are made on a return to biking, it looks like I have another bout of surgery to go through but at least it'll give me time to keep scanning the ads. As to what bike, I just fancy something relatively tame to bimble around on and qu...

Hello (again) from darkest Lincs

Hi everyone, Hope all's well in your respective circles. :) It's been such a long time since I posted on Boxertrix, it may have been more apt for a re-introduction within 'New Trixters'. Still, just wanted to drop by and give a shout out to old friends on here. 7 years now since I last had a bike (t...

Young sister

I was a very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me, it was her beautiful younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight miniskirts, and generally was bra-l...
