Well, it's about time I updated you on things. I finally got through the test a few weeks ago, when at short notice an examiner visited the Island. Since then I've done about 500 miles on the 1100S. I've also been to Devon to collect an R1100RS which is doing the mainland commute. My longest ride by...

Well, there's only one test left between me and the road now! :D It turned out that while I was saving up for another test my instructor moved off the island, so I've had the opportunity to try a couple of different bikes. This time a Suzuki Gladius and a Honda CB600F. In my opinion, both preferable...

Hello again chaps, Sorry for the long break, it's been a busy few weeks, with a new job involving much more time, a hovercraft and bicycle commute, and all the other dross getting in the way. I also failed my mod 1 again, so hopefully I'll get it right next time. I went to see the bike today, ran it...

Hello McBoxer,

I can't fault your reasoning, the car started life in 1938. It's not a boxer, it's not air-cooled, and it's not Germany.

There's a few of you North of the border then?

As old as they are, this is a modern vehicle by my standards, it's only 63 years newer than my favourite car!

Popsky, from the service history, the bike spent some time in Dorset, you could well be right.

I don't think I could get much further from Scotland... One of the plans is to visit Scotland at some point. And yes, it'll be my first bike after direct access, so it's going to be a learning cliff. So far my motorcycle experience is about 850 miles on my YBR 125, and a couple of days on a Kawasaki...

Hi Al,

I'm on the sunny Isle of Wight, hopefully the bike will give me a more efficient way of getting around the rest of the country.

The most recent owner was known here as GSXR Chris, I don't think he had it long.

Oh, and the driveway is the bit of the property that needs least work!

The previous owner recommended joining you here. So far, I've ridden it...
