Hi Dave! Sooooooo glad you are back with us once more and hopefully fully recovered  8)

What's happening with BigBikeMad etc? What happened to the Kwacker? Or am I out of touch?

Glad to hear that you are well Dave. Good to have you back.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Hi Dave! Great to hear you're up and about, and in the saddle again! Excellent choice of steed. The K13GT EE was my last bike, also a 2010 model, which I p/x for an R12RT last Sept. at Dick Lovetts. Your Reg isn't WJ60.... per chance. Only asking as I'm curious where mine ended up!

Thanks everyone. Still the same friendly place I see.

I sold Bigbikemad.com to an American who, while not unhappy to claim authorship for the articles doesn't seem to be adding to it - just a new look and carrying advertising... Anyway I got a good price, so why worry?

I've kept the YouTube Channel and I still post videos on that. People seem more interested in video now. They are not very good, but if it helps anyone thats great.

I had a dip with my tumour and treatment and during that time I (ahem)  :-[sold the ZZR1400 and bought a Porsche 987 from Dick Lovett (used I hasten to add and older than a normal Lovett car). Yes, well I wasn't the full ticket you know. Anyway. feeling better so car gone (not quick enough anyway) and now have the K1300GT which I plan to take over to Ireland when I move over there - hopefully later this year. There won't be many of those in the emerald isle...

I've now left my employer (Yay! ;D) and am working as a private consultant - which means the bike is a business expense (it is actually my only form of transport) and I get more time for riding. And fiddling with it obviously. And brewing beer. And drinking it. ::)

What's been happening to you lot? :-\

Friendly? Bugger that, yer banned!

I made the mistake of accepting the hand of friendship from David (black-k1) in Spain last summer and spent a day on his K13 while he suffered greatly on my K12!

Hence, as you can see from my profile piccie, I am now the confused owner of two K's, the original 12 and a 2012 13 to keep it company!
