Hi from Scotland

I've been a long time lurker in the background, thought it was best to start trying to contribute to this great forum.

I'm riding a 1997 F3 model (I think)

So hello to you all from Scotland 👍🏻

Thanks for coming out of the woodwork. Nice bike.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Welcome aboard, mate. Glad to have another from the land of real men, real sheep, real thistle, and real whisky.

Lovely bit of kit you have on it. What's been done, and what's on the horizon?

Cheers mate 👍🏻

The bikes had :
Ohlins shock
Ohlins fork internals
Quick action throttle
Pipercross filter
Rear sets
Steering damper
Race fairing
Danmoto exhaust
After market levers
Clip ons
Braided hoses
5 sets of wheels (slicks, wets, cut race tyres, road tyres)
Electrics stripped to minimum
All set up & tuned on rolling road

20yrs old and still gives the new bikes a run for their cash on the track!!
Plus it's still Road legal in the U.K., no lights, indicators, speedo, mirrors etc is all good 😂👍🏻

Now if MOT would see to culling the number of speed cameras in the UK. You might entice me, lad. MOT sees to it you lot are the most 'watched' souls on the planet. Though I'd image they are not quite as 'enthusiastic' N of the boundary as the poxy buggers are in the South.

You bastsids are drawing up far too easy of a blueprint for both American & Canadian gov't politicians to follow... Wankers they be.

I have a cousin up in Inverness (every family has a crazy member), I saw a couple races down at Knockhill, back in the day of a Walker & Reynolds, et al... Massive fun

Cheers
