Hello

Hello everyone.
Just joined so looking forward to finding my way around the forum.
I think I've done this 'sport bike' thing the wrong way round, all my mates had Blades, R1's etc 20 years ago. I retired last September and get my first Blade, oh well, at least I get time to ride her
I'm now the proud owner of a 2000 929, the bike was in original condition and had only done 3800 miles from new, 200 of those in the last 10 years.
I've changed all the fluids and fitted a MTC end can and link pipe, it now sounds good to.

Re: Hello

Welcome, lovely bike, perhaps I'll bump into you at the"H" Cafe I try to pop over most Sunday afternoons.

Re: Hello

Hi Gunk, yeah I actually live in Didcot so not to far from H cafe. I've got the blade booked in with Grant, who's behind the shop, to have a pc5 fitted to try and smooth out the fuelling.

Re: Hello
