Yeah I'd be up for that. I'm going to see a bike tomorrow.. if I fall in love I might be picking it up Saturday morning
Sound! Hope the weathers gonna be nice!
I'm out look at a bike from about 10-1pm . Not sure if Ill be around for a run tomorrow
Just wondering is my planned trip from cork-mizen head and back on saturday too stressful on my restricted bandit engine or will it be ok?
Should be alright man. Just don't go mad on it.
Easier said than done! On the big roads im not too gentle!
One of the lads did the Iron Butt of Ireland on his restricted Bandit S and didn't have any trouble so you should be grand.
As for the weekly rideout, I need to get my bike fixed first. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be back on her again.
Why would it be stressful on the engine?
just wondernig, wouldnt like to do it on a 125, wondering if the restriction would have the same effect?
Wouldn't have any stress effect on the bandit engine, they are bullets, plus i did Dublin to cork and back again on my restricted bandit no bother
If the engine is designed to deliver say 100hp, but is restricted to 33hp, you won't be able to stress the engine anywhere near what it is designed to be able to take.
just bought my first bike yesterday............a little 125 virago.......would you think i could keep up with the slower riders on this trip?
I would think that out of respect, nobody is going to go haring off and leaving others behind. I reckon you'll be ok. I am of course open to correction.
Thanks!! I'll give it a try in a couple of weeks so to see how it goes!!!
I am working tomorrow, next week is the Heineken Cup Quater final...
the following weekend - 14/15 April is good for me.
