WA Back on 2 wheels after 15 years

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by welsh ogre, Oct 10, 2016.

  1. Hi all, I , as the title says just got back on 2 wheels after a15 year break, I have become the proud new owner of a Honda CB900 Hornet and very nice it is too. I have come here to hopefully learn of a way to shift those huge exhaust cans from under the seat into the more conventional set- up. I would like a 4 into 1 pipe running out along the driver's side swing arm. I have seen it on a Hornet whilst I was on foot in the street the other day and it totally suits the streetfighter look.
    If anybody can give me some advice on how to make this happen I would be very grateful, I really have no knowledge of anything 'bike' now and have to start somewhere. Happy riding!!!

  2. Can't help you on the mods, but would suggest a refresher riding course if it's been a long while between rides!

    Not sure what the set up is over in WA for refresher rider training - but it is strongly recommended. Cheers

    If you haven't ridden in a while, refresher training can only help.

    don't worry about refresher training, just get out there and thrash it - you'll be fine:emoji_thumbsup:

    I hope!
