Hi everyone,

I got my Cat in October last year and have ridden her almost every day through the winter, including the snow where I spilled myself. No harm done, luckily fitted some cheap crash bungs which saved the bike!!
Spent a bit of time sorting out a few niggles, bought of E-bay for a grand, and have just had new fork seals and a service done. Bike feels so much better for it. The forum has been a great source of information to me and now having gained a bit of confidence am really looking forward to the summer riding.

The Plymouth Mega ride is coming up and I was wondering if there is anyone else going this year, I only passed my test in October so am looking forward to the first ride out. Hope to see some cats there.

Doug...

Hi Doug welcome, well done for braving winter.

If you haven't already, take a look at 'Something for the Weekend' events, be good if you could make any of them.
There are a couple of 'Cats in your area so you might see some from here out and about.

Hi Doug

Welcome to the site.

Hats off (and crash bungs on) to you for riding through winter. Not as severe as up here I guess.....not many bikes out in nearly 2 ft of snow. How did she fair with all the road salt?

Hope the Mega ride goes well and you meet some cats & spread the word.
There might just be the odd one from here........Actually there are a few odd ones on here but hey ho! loony

Cheers
Rosco

Thanks for all the welcomes. The roads are good up on the moors. Lots of cameras though. 4 points and £360 testifies to that!!! Bloody mobile vans!

Rosco, she faired ok through the salt and I know what you mean about the snow up there. I'm from a bit further North than you. Born in Perterhead, Aberdeenshire. Don't think they know what a gritter is down here though.
I will definately be spreading the cat word. Too many K-whackers down here!

Doug.
