Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Saying hi!

Post by Danas108 on Sat 27 May 2017, 5:35 pm

Newbie saying hi from Lithuania! Smile

I registered in a year ago since inherited CB500 1998 from my brother (he's got vfr800). Being a person who likes to upgrade things though not budget for that I enjoyed and benefitted from your common wisdom on the forum and I am deeply grateful. Because of your enjoyment of cb500, I decided to bring her into new life Smile

This is my first 150 miles on two wheels. So far so good.

There she is!

Welcome from a fellow 46 supporter. Shame he pushed a little too hard at Le Mans, should have settled for 2nd and the points.
Nice looking bike.

Thanks! 
Honestly, I found 46 sticker only because it fits the seat line, and only afterwards I read about MotoGP guy.. Also, the movie "Hitting the apex" is a nice watch.

Welcome Danas,
I am not normally keen on custom jobs, but that really suits it.
Nice work as well.

The photo is poor quality, but one can see the stance.

Looks cool! Thank for sharing the photos. It's nice to hear that you benefited from the collective wisdom of the forum. Is that number-plate legal in Lithuania? Wink

Not entirely legal I believe Very Happy  The number-plate gets caught in by the turning wheel so there it dwells Wink I need address it. This is the reality of customisation. But apparently I want to drive more than jump around with a spanner Smile

I agree. It really works. Looks brilliant and the choice of headlight and seat unit really work! 

Good job!

Good job!

Thanks, mate! I tried to eliminated what is not necessary. 
Now it is time to learn driving Smile
