No Bike For Easter

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by ametha elf, Apr 9, 2012.

  1. My bike has been in the garage for a week waiting for a small mechanical issue to be fixed. I was hoping to have it back for Easter but sadly that wasn't the case. Its been lovely fine riding weather and I've missed riding my bike so much, and hate seeing the empty spot in our carport. The whole world seems to be out riding over the weekend. Luckily hubby has a bike and so I've been pillioning on it, but after riding my own for 4 years, I'm not such a good pillion rider as I used to be!

  2. I know exactly how you feel, m'lady. The Hornet is sold and going this week so I'm not riding it, the owner of the Fireblade I WANT won't return my PMs, and the owners of the other bikes in the frame are spread to the four winds on the long weekend and I can't even test-ride their machines, much less buy one :LOL:.

  6. Aww that sucks :(

    My bike had a cracked manifold intake, but I know a guy who's been a bike mechanic for years so I dropped it off to him and got it back the next day. He gave me the old part and there were plenty of cracks in it, no wonder my poor bike wouldn't idle properly. I hope time goes quickly for you, you must be going insane, I know I would.

    I hope you get it back soon, but if not maybe you could pretend to be interested in a couple of bikes at a shop and get test rides :D

  7. Only problem is that my feet dangle about a foot in the air on his bike.
