Member Info: My dad has had bikes since he was 16, so bike are in the blood!! Ive had bikes since i was about 4, much to my mums horror!!! I went to the TT in 2003, it was great, planning on going to the big 100 year one in 2007 The honda was a project, I want a sportsbike eventually, cant really get my knee down on the CM!!!! For now it´s cheap insurance until I can afford a quicker bike!!!
 
 Current:

Purchased: Mar 2003
Info: Well the CM is finally back on the road, after I (with a little help from my dad) stripped the bike, engine out, (off to La Moto to get re-bored), painted the frame, new mudguards (not Honda, too dear!!!), many bits from M&P, engine polished, carbureter polished + anything else that can be made shiny, made shiny!!!! all put back in the right places. The bike is great, loadsa fun on country lanes.

Info: My DT was used as a field bike, but I had planned to get it road worthy for when i turned 16. My dad saw the Honda and thought it would be a good idea to do that up. So I sold the DT, It was a great bike for messin about on, just wasnt powerful enough compered to my mates full blown crosser!!! It was red and white (proper Yamaha colours), will post pics
