Hi Mike,

Welcome to the site, but you've made 3 posts! Not sure if that's allowed before making a formal introduction :rite:

Only joking. We need more info and pics if possible. Guess you've got/getting a 'cat?

Hope you enjoy the site.

Chris

Thanks for the welcome.

Ha, apologies Chris! Couldn't help getting stuck in.

History on me and the bike, I live near Hereford, west mids. The 'Cat is my first bike. '96 with 45,000 on the clock. Silver black and yellow colours. Fairings aren't in the best condition but good enough for a first bike.
Have fitted some crash bungs, bright LEDs under the front indicators for visibility, other than that its fairly standard.

Have pictures but as I'm on my phone I don't think i can upload them.

Regards

Mike

Hello again, Snowcat.

Yes it's definitely a Place of use! Been very helpful. And thanks for the link! I knew there should have been an app for that! Some pictures:

The day I bought her




The new LEDs I put on. They're too bright for the camera.



Excuse the junk in the garage.

Thanks.

The LEDs are from a company called Bike-Vis.

http://www.bikevis.com/motorcycle-led-running-lights.html

Very bright both at night and very visible in day time too. Easy to install and cheap as well.

No worries. They do a few different options on there. But they are very bright.

Radar: no not far from Worcester. Often ride along the Worcester to Hereford road. What is BC5?

I'll answer that if I may ?

BC5 would refer to the ride outs we do in the "Something for the Weekend" section. BC = Bishops Castle, this year was the fourth next year (obviously) will be 5 Thumb
