Well, this site has not been updated for a very long time, but we have been very busy.
Firstly just a bit about us in case you hit the site and don't know who we are.
My name is Simon and I'm an applications developer for an insurance company based in Liverpool. I grew up firstly in Stoke-on-Trent (UK) and moved to Plymouth when I was 13. I left Plymouth to go to Uni in Liverpool in 1993 where I scraped a degree in Physics.
Uni is where I met my now fiancée Ruth who was also on the Physics course and graduated a year later with a Master of Physics. Ruth is originally from Oldham although she spent most of her later childhood growing up in Marple just outside Manchester. Ruth now works for an insurance broker also based in Liverpool.
We spent the last few years living just off Lark Lane in the Sefton Park area of Liverpool but have recently bought a house down the road in Aigburth and are currently renovating it.
Well that's enough information for now but we hope to keep the site up to date more often now we have more time! ;-)
I passed my full bike test in May 2000 and got a Yamaha XS 250 SE (see below), which I rode for three weeks and then wrapped around a tree in Wales. I did rebuild it (the front end was in a right mess) but its now off the road again as I have bought another bike. I'm still looking to renovate the XS though when I get the time and money as it needs a new exhaust set and probably could do with the old mechanical timing unit replacing with an electronic one. It also needs the spark plug ports redrilling as I've managed to cross-thread both of them!! Any suggestions as to spares etc would be much appreciated.
I've now got a 1983 Honda CB750 F2, which I've had for a year. It's by far the best bike I've has yet as it's got a lot more power. We use it everyday to commute to work and it's only ever let us down when it's had a puncture or when one little local idiot climbed our back wall and ripped out the wiring trying to hot-wire it (I don't know what he was going to do with it then as he wouldn't have got it out of the back!).
