Good to hear how you doing on test Suzuki gs500 good reliable bike only 1 thing to watch for is the frame like the bandit there bad for roosting. I was brought up with bikes my thirst love. I started with kemico zing 125 from my grandad retired from biking at 80 I had that for 2 years pasted old type test and got myself Suzuki sv650s had that for 4 years got rot off by head on collision with a never bike. So I whated 2 years for big insurance payout and got my self this January brand new aprilia 1100 turno factory not bad for 27 year old. Please keep us updated with your progress [Image: 1c0837a7f8b10d457988eab8f1e194e8.jpg][Image: 099337caa9e944736cfde942dd0abdf9.jpg]

What bike you ride isn't that portent it's your gear you were. you don't need to send lots of money. It's quality that's important you can't put a price on your head. My sidi boots saved my foot broke my ankle but if I hadn't no boots on I'd loose my foot

Well I'm a step closer, passed my theory today (with zero revision).

Got 46/50 on the multiple guess and 57/75 on the hazard perception. I got maximum 5 points on more than half but a bit pissed off that I scored zero on one as I obviously saw and clicked before the computer acknowledged there was a hazard.

The multiple choice bit I know most of what I went wrong on.
The case study bit they have added to it is horrific. Paraphrased "you filter past some queuing traffic at traffic lights and continue straight on when the lights turn green, you then turn right at the Y junction, go through a tunnel and then turn right at a roundabout" Question "how do you position your bike at the junction?" ARRRRGGGGHHHHHHH WHICH OF THE 3 f*cking JUNCTIONS IN YOUR f*cking DAFT f*cking BADLY WRITTEN f*cking STORY DO YOU f*cking MEAN YOU f*cking CNUTBAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also what the f*ck is a "Y" junction?!?! We didn't have "Y" junctions when I learnt to drive so how am I supposed to answer questions on that.

Been riding mine around the car park at work, after the initial "oh f*ck that's a heavy machine" I'm finding it fairly easy to ride.. Now to get the mot done and then sort my license out!

there will be a point.. usually in front of traffic,  that you will put your foot down expecting nice hard solid ground and there will be nothing and despite your prayers and best intentions, over the space of what feels like about 2 hours, that bike will go over.. painfully..

very little damage if any to bike,  pride in tatters and loads of disapproving motorists watching you as the light turns from red to green and back again and you are trying to heave the bike back on its wheels..

Bikes weigh 10x what you think they do when moving slow, stationary or as you arrive in front of all your mates lol

I'm fully prepared for that, I expect to drop it. I think I'd be stupid to think I'll be fine straight away.. It is so easy to maneuver though, been riding it around the ramps at work without any fuss. And I can just about pick it up on my own. Just. lol

He got a bmw gs.

GS meaning gravity special... Coz it feels like theres more gravity than usual when it starts to go over

Haha literally a GS would be correctly sized for me!

Is the bike leaning if you have a foot on the floor, Jonny?
