Yes mate. It was always weather permitting but it was good. Cracking turnout he's my gopro. Doesn't do it justice unfortunately but you get the idea of roughly how many

Looked a Class run bud😎

i live two mins away from the tunnel but im a fair weather rider and sorn over the winter every year. Is that the vfr your on?
 
I liked to hit the kill switch, give it 2 big handfulls and then fire it back up BANG!

Until someone told me you can knack ya conrods!
Sadly Doesent work on a modern fuel injection bike. When you hit the kill switch now it kills the fuel and the spark. On old carb bikes it killed the spark, carb still throwing fuel in ready for the awaiting spark hence the bang.

Ooh the halycon days.😎

Yes mate. I don't sorn just keep it ticking over all year round but only ride in the decent weather
New years eve was surprisingly mild.i went think my vfr sounded loud enough and good but it was drowned out to be fair. If i do it again the baffles are coming out

Wtf. Are you crazy?

Iv seen many a bloke sell their bike "just for now" never to be seen again. Bike and a car Jeff, you know its the only way to go.
Sunderland, problem would be getting nome, Seaham is a better option for a lift.
Barkers in boldon?

On my Tuono if you pull the clutch in and hit the rev limiter the bike goes BANG BANG BANG, once doing it in a tunnel a massive blue flame shot out from under the tank from the open airbox, I nearly shit myself. Like Big Jeff I heard it could knacker the engine doing it too often so don't do it any more.

Gearboxes

i had a Kawasaki ZZR600 and the gearbox/Cush drive was so clunky going into first it was crazy. The bike used to jump forward with a massive clunk.

Suzuki boxes I have always found to be snickety snick.

I have had a Harley. I bought the wrong bike though and the gearbox was terrible It would not go, it would not stop and did not like corners.
