Hi everyone, after years riding the c90s as kids in the fields in the countryside where I grew up, the amount of respect i had back then for these bikes is as high as they made me feel riding them, A grin from ear to ear. :D
For years I put off buying one until now, over 20+ years later im again the proud owner of a H reg blue beauty.

Nice to be part of a group where everyone has there own story, knowledge, passion and advice about these bikes.

Cheers Dicky

I visited Whitby in August, it was absolutely banged out. Parked in a motorcycle bay and got sworn at by a BMW driver who had planned to park his car in it. :D

Lovely place Runswick Bay. The beach is spot on there, perfect for kids with the rock pools to explore in!
Haha yeah sounds about right in Whitby during Peak season. It's a free for all with parking, plus that and dodging seagull poo. πŸ˜‚

Unfortunately not but I used to pass it more or less everyday going through Thornton Le-Dale when working over Pickering/Malton way, going over Blakey past the Lion Inn pub and down in to kirkbymooreside. πŸ‘

Often have a run down to Whitby through Saltburn down coast. I park up by the whalebones as really busy in town now. Then down to Robin Hoods Bay all way down to launching slab, only doable on small bike IMHO.Then, if time Scarborough and back via Helmsley. Hell of a day ride on a small bike. Welcome to Club.
