    So Guy Martin is taking a run at Pikes Peak on an absolute beast. 320bhp Turbo.

    I really want to see how a guy who can run the Isle of Man TT flat out will do going up Pikes.

    When do you want to pick one up??? 3 AMF Harley's and a '68 triumph, all of which meet your requirements.

    Finally got some of my photos together. Have some more on some old hard drives. Currently trying to blacken the rear end at the moment.......

    Cool, Yamaha. That bike never made it to the states.

    I'm loving my Monster s2r, but I'd really like more than 100 miles per tank.

    When I lost my GS-Adv in the divorce, I sold off my Adventure Rains. Great boots for 'adventure riding' but they're more road biased than dirt biased. (not enough ankle protection for real dirt riding)

    My next bike's likely to be an Aprilia Futura or Ducati ST3/ST4/ST4S. The sporty side of sport-touring

    I am seriously considering getting a bike and have my eye on the new Yamaha FZ-09.

    Can anyone recommend a quick list of items a new rider would need for riding outside of the obvious, helmet (required in this state so no debate), gloves, jacket yada yada.

    Cheers. Nick

    First, a rider safety course. Do it before you buy the bike. Seriously.

    Then, ear plugs. You don't think about it, but once you ride with them, you'll not want to ride without them. NOT for engine noise, but the constant wind noise that WILL damage your hearing in time.

    Safety course, extra life insurance.

    If you do your own maintence a swing arm stand is a must as well as the tools that you mostly probably already own. Thinking more, a battery tender if it sits through the winter.

    I'd also recommend some riding pants and boots. Jeans don't cut it.

    Not to be a smart arse but maybe something a bit tamer for the first year. It's amazing how quickly a big bike can get away from you.

    Also, water proof gear usually is up until a point.
