    My bike goes in for a service Friday but will have it down there Thursday night and it will be Friday night when i pick it up... I don't know what i'm going to do for 24 hours i have nothing to ride... and that just not good for me... Looks like i better get out the old pushy now and practice on that..



    Hope it goes fast like my like my Ninja looks like pedal power for a day :(

    Had the bike 2 weeks and clocked 1020km on her already... Next Service is at 6000km so lots more riding till then...

    Damn, you're killing me - had mine 2 weeks and only clocked 500km, nice work.

    Maybe you need a little cheapie 2nd bike for when your Ninja is being serviced!

    I got on my Pushy for the first time in 6 months this morning. Kept trying to change gears with my left foot. Didn't work. Neither did twisting the right hand grip.

    I find it also quite embarassing to nod at motorcyclists when on a pushbike :oops:

    There is one spot on my ride home where I have to think whether I'm on pushbike or motorbike and whether the footpath is a viable option.

    Making that mistake in the cage would be a bit awkward...

    Glad im not the only one that gets confused, looking for a mirror that isnt there on push bike, looking in the rear view mirror prior to a filtering maneuver in the car, expecting to be able to out accelerate anything in the car, expecting push bike to brake as hard as motorbike, oh what a multi-modal transport kefuffle.

    Quicker than me too - I had my Ninja in for her 1000km service on Wednesday, about 5 weeks after purchase. Though if I'm commuting more often I'll start chewing up the kms...
