    New Member Wirral

    Hi all
    Thought i`d introduce myself. Dave as you could have worked out from the user name.
    I`m based in Great Sutton, Ellesmere port and have ridden bikes since the tender age of 10.

    Currently I own a 1200 GS lc which is my main bike which takes me scratching and touring. Great bit of kit (said I`d never own one as they were shite).
    Also a 1976 KH 250 which i`ve owned since 2002 and is a little beauty.

    I`ve owned loads of bikes over the years including a ZRX11 C1 in Celeste silver which I bought new in 1997 and sold it in 2002

    I recently hauled my arse up to not so sunny Scotland and bought a rex off one of your members Jacky. Smashing fella. We had a little haggle and a deal was struck including paddock stands and original exhaust.
    The bike was in really good nick and it was original apart from the Akra and K&N filter. It has been on the dyno and is putting out 116bhp I will get the dynojet kit and have Steve Hammond of Motrac to set it all up in due course.
    The bike is currenty in a state of disrepair whilst I wait for the wheels to come back from the powder coaters.

    I will stick some pics up soon

    Cheers Dave

    Hiya Dave, nice intro, welcome . we like pikkies we do. pikkies of yer wheels too, I do like painted wheels, me- don't know why. But might be tempted to the darker side one day.......

    My bike is in a state of disrepair too- Like everything else I own ......

    I don't think its been washed since it was registered and bought it with pink glasses on---- ( after selling the smartest bike on this forum to Eric...........)

    Once you get the bike down and have a few hours to spare give me a shout and I`ll show you round the excellent North Wales. Some mega roads.
    That offer goes for all if anyone wants to see some great roads and scenery.
