    Default any green lainers in here?

    hello people

    while im in the process of getting to know the forum and people who frequent here though i would have a couple of threads in here see if there are any others with the same interests.

    my old man has 4 bikes 2x bmw's a laverda jota 1000 and an old ducati 860gs so to say ive been brought up with bikes a round me is an understatement lol anyway ive always had an interest in green lanes but currently only have a cbt so im stuck with 125's for the moment but hopefully next year i can pluck the cash and courage to get my test passed so i can get a decent 450 thumper!!

    here is a pic of my current bike
    spec
    2003 ktm sx125
    vhm head
    skimmed barrel
    single ring piston
    vforce 4 reeds
    powernow throttle opening
    doma exhast
    brembo brakes
    knobbly tyres
    fully rebuilt engine 4 rides ago

    this thing shifts like a rocket

    Hi
    I am an oldy now m8 but I used to have a Bultaco 250cc Sherpa (gears on the wrong side etc) and it would go anywhere, wheelie like a mofo and was instrimental in several hospital visits (Broken rib, broken collar bone etc). I loved it.
    about ten years ago, I am embarrased to say, I bought a NC24 VFR400 to mess around on and did forty miles on it before accepting I was not the man I once was and petrified, said VFR has sat in the garage on a Sorn ever since lol.
    great photos mi8

    That is a shame mate them vfr400 are nice bikes-is the one you have the one with 2 circle headlights?
    i have used my cbt for trying different styles of bikes so I know what I want for my step up.

    tried the aprilia 125 factory full power and I had 100mph out of it little flying machine that's not my style I like the enduro sit up bikes tourers etc these face down knee out bikes are not suitable for me!
    my pal has a ducati evo 848 in red and white what a cracking looking bike but I can't ride them

    Hi
    two headlights is the NC30, mine is NC24, google it, sounds and rides like a 2 stroke but its a 4 stroke, redlines at 14,000 with gear driven cams and you got to ride it hard, good for 130+mph - pocket rocket.

    Yes the gear driven cam is a iconic engine-has a whine about it...
    i love the look of the nc30, you should get your arse back in the saddle pal just take it easy.
    saying that it's hard to go easy isn't it.
    ive had a few frights

    not so much green laning but more field/motorcross riding - every couple of weeks me and a few mates rock up to waddon mx near milton keynes with a few off roaders (various capacity 2 & 4 stroke's we have collected over the years)

    my own workhorse is an aprilia caponord fitted with a tuned rsv mille engine with custom mapping

    my toy is a very customised 2003 kawasaki z1000 running dry shot nitrous oxide

    the wife has a very mint suzuki SV1000s and a spectacular GSF1200 bandit streetfighter


    oh, BTW - im still a fully qualified motorcycle riding instructor and run my own school part time, any questions - fire away m8

    Thanks to tiggerbiker

    Its the only way to let your hair down when I'm out on the lanes everything that's going on in my life goes to the back of my mind, it's really hard work sometimes and these bigger 4 strokes can't keep up with me-I think the sweet spot is a 250 2 smoker.
    light as anything with a very decent power delivery!

    Your bike sounds awesome but prob well beyond my capacity, personally I don't think I would go past 450cc unless I get a decent tourer!

    ive been on the road for only 1 year and the amount of people pulling out in front of me is unreal-them big tnt wagons the lot
    its getting very dangerous on 2 wheels with more and more cars on roads these days

    Always been into bikes not road bikes just off road, nothing beats the near death experiences you can have in a fast two stroke.

    mx sprocket ratio on a cr 500 must be phenomenal.
