My dad owns a motorcycle shop , chris prykes in maldon essex so been into bikes since i born, i was 3 days old when i went to my 1st race meeting and less than a year old my 1st TT, i do bike repairs on the side and help train all ages in mx racing and bike prep. when i figure out how to put some pics up i will, engines etc im ok on but computors im no good with. 1 place ive got to go to is the ace cafe, will have to go as my dad always tells stories of his early days on his triton cafe racers,he used to build cafe racers for people, sounds like some good old days. suns out at mo, very tempted to go out on bike but after stepping outside its tooooo cold for me, years ago i rode in sun, rain snow whatever but now im afraid im a dry wheather rider, well on me R6 anyway.:stuck_out_tongue:

Hi and Welcome!

Hi & welcome to LB :smiley:

welcome to lb

Welcome, I went for a ride around Finchingfield on Sunday, some great roads around that neck of the woods!

Thanx all for your welcomes, its true what they say about bikers, we are a freindly bunch. if you see a biker at the road side we always check they are ok, and a nod in passing goes a long way, car drivers dont do that. Tattooing, i have some but would like some moor, whats the waiting time for you, my nearest in braintree is nearly a year, ones in colchester about the same,
Yeh there are some good roads round here, when its warmer theres so many bikes about its like living on the TT circuit, its great. you still have to mind the odd tractor or sunday driver tho. Finchingfeild on a sunny day can get around 100 or so bikes, on a wed eve we have great bently,nr colchester, prob around 500 bikes, some specials too.

waiting list depneds on what work you want done, our waiting list isnt as long as a year! a month max!!
