You will probably find lots of people lurk around here. I keep checking in every few days.

We had a good ride last year round the coast with several people from on here.

Paul who usually organises things decided to go and get himself married recently so guess thats why its been a bit quiet.

Welcome in.

Do children get any easier as they get bigger?? Mine is only 12 weeks and seems to take up all time available and then a load more hours that shouldn't exist (but she is still wonderful so i dont mind too much)

Been to the Fenman a few times but it usually falls on a weekend when I am away and I usually walk there and forget how to get home :lol: :lol:

Hi & welcome.
I've got the same model as you, a 2005 FZ6.
I have always ridden sports bikes, sold my R1 last year after riding a XJ6 on test from Tinklers.
I ended up with the FZ6, as its got 20odd more BHP than the XJ6, and suits my riding style better that the XJ6.
Excellent bike though, I was well impressed.
I personally wouldnt go for a cruiser, but then in a few years i may feel different

Hi ya steve,thanks for the comments.it is such a shame but i have to add that i beleive i was stiched up on my fz6 as i was not told that it had 10 owners from new all though the bkie is not to bad but been used in all weathers and showing this as well but when i found out that it had all these owners i wondered why this has been traded in so much.after a close look you can see places which i think has had the frame apart in places and the odd bolt has been damaged. but any how it has gone at the week end as i did get the xj6 s 600,11 plate, i am well pleased as its a demonstrater so got it at the right price so looking forward to it... cheers and thanks.
