    Where do you guys get the custom earplugs made up that some of you where using? Is it easy to get some that can fit headphones as well?

    Takes ages to put my std large yellow foam plugs in and out, gotta wait for them to expand before putting my helmet on.

    I use Alpine MotoSafe plugs, much easier to fit than foam ones but probably not as good protection as tailored ones. Couldn't say how they fit with headphones but they work nicely with helmet-mounted earphones like my Autocom.

    I don't really know or care to be honest. :p
    Currently I am watching a CBR6 that is gorgeous with 17k up it but it depends on what it goes for, Also trying to contact some Dude with a Blade for sale & watching a VFR750 & a Honda Hornet. Do you see a theme here ? :D
    Any one of the above would do me fine or anything like it.

    Insurance is not really an issue at my ripe old age & I have 1 years no claims as well now. I'm in that Budget where I'll have to go with the flow & get the best bike for the money I have rather than set my heart on 1 particular bike. If the insurance turns out more expensive than I thought I'll just do it monthly rather than cash them out.
    I want my next bike NOW though. :p

    Paid all my wedge into the bank today & I have to say I am Not happy about selling my bike, Especially as the Sun is out again. :(

    Some Dude local has a Blade for sale that I'm going to look at & I'm off down the bike center tomorrow night to sort my lessons/test/whatever. Not really sure about the old Blade as a first bike but as it's local I'm going to have a look at it & a mate whose had about 5 Blades will advise me. I'm doing nothing until the auction for the CBR6 finishes (2 Days 12hrs) though as I really fancy that & it will make a much better First bike, It being Black & pure sex helps loads of course. :D

    Not booked in yet I'm just going to go down & speak to them face to face Wednesday evening & work out the quickest/best way for me to do it all, I'm quite looking forward to it to be honest & cannot wait to be legal on something bigger.

    Bumped this thread for a good reason, You'll like this & those that came to the meet will laugh with me.

    "The Road" can now be openly named as the A444 starting from A5 end.
    On the news today I heard they are issuing local villagers with Speed guns in an attempt to calm down the Speeders.
    In good old fashioned Midland style though the people caught won't be prosecuted they will just receive a Warning letter. :D
    You gotta love the bike friendly Midlands. :cool:
