WIN S-doc clean­ing kit and a Tamiya model bike!

Ever since I was a kid I have al­ways been in­ter­ested in mo­tor­bikes, but it was only when I was 25 (in 2005) and hav­ing a dose of chemo­ther­apy for tes­tic­u­lar can­cer did I think ‘what do I want to do with my life?’ so I de­cided to do my CBT and get a bike: a new Honda XR125. I will say this: re­mem­ber guys, we check our bolts on the bike, now it’s time to check your nuts as it’s SO im­por­tant. I have self-taught my­self with the bikes and have made plenty of mis­takes and learnt a lot and I have loved ev­ery minute of it. Here is a Honda CB450DX be­fore and af­ter resto, a very rough non-run­ning Kawasaki ER500 (I got it run­ning and sprayed it with a rat­tle can I just wanted some­thing dif­fer­ent!). Also a Honda Sil­ver Wing: su­per cheap and once again bought as a non-run­ner. I got it all run­ning nicely and it passed the MOT first time. The last photo is of my 1996 Yamaha YZF600R Thun­der­cat. I just can’t part with it; so comfy for my ag­ing back, plenty of power and rides like a dream.
