    Well all these pics of bike thought i would show you my old mean machine, and the new dreamer.

    First off my old bike Alistair:

    Shes a H reg Honda CG125, 0-60 just about. 11bhp and a whole £24 to insure for the year, plus the overpriced tax of £15, but she returned me a reasonable 98mpg. It was an expensive purchase at £70 but it works.

    So then i bought a new one (Christopher George), and gave Alistair to my house mate, she set me back a lot of $$ a whole £200 but i think she's worth it:

    New orange dreamer, this one is an 02 reg, and benfits a chav 55w bulb and an exhaust off an old motocross bike, so to say its loud is an understatement. little bit more to insure at £34 but does return 124mpg.

    I love them, and the comedy thing is, although running around on these bikes at the grand old age of 26, and still having L plates, i have a grin from ear to ear, and at around 4 pence per mile, it's perfect for work, done a month solid on Christopher George for work, there have been some cold mornings! But i am still smiling.

    And yes i go out riding with mates on it, there all into bikes, infact my mate just spent £12.5k on an RSV . . man what a sound!! But i did ask if it was worth the £12.3k more than mine!

    I currently have a 2007 Benelli Tornado TRE1130 in green and silver and a 1956 Triumph Thunderbird in black.
    Oulton is just down the road and my favourite track day haunt, although funds are tight this year, dont think I will be getting out on track.
    Dont seem to be able to post any pictures on here.
