1996 Yamaha TRX850

So I was working hard to reduce the amount of bikes in the garage…………….. and then I accidentally buy a TRX850. I was toying with the idea of buying a rather expensive bike, like a KTM Superduke 1290 or a BMW S1000R but I thought having over £7000 sat there in a bike that I never seem to have enough time to ride would be a waste. Sooo I decided that a cheaper do-er up-er would be a better buy, it would give me a project to work on and a bike to ride when I didn’t want to ride the Hayabusa. So I started to look round for a bike that would be a nice project but wouldn’t break…

Hayabusa Update 2018

I’ve not posted about my Hayabusa for sometime and as it is my main go to bike I feel this is a little unfair!! The Busa has sat there patiently while other bikes have come and gone, I feel that it might be like the grunts in the Vietnam war, not getting to know the new guys because they might suddenly not be there anymore 😉 Anyway I will go through all the mods I have done and intend to do and you will see there is not a huge amount left to do on the Busa, except ride it!!!! So from front to back here goes:

PFM Performance Profiled Discs – These discs look smart and are an upgrade on the originals as they…

Yamaha YSR50

So, basically I always wanted a Gag bike…… What is a Gag bike I hear you ask. Gag bikes are small capacity 3/4 size bikes built generally for the Japanese domestic market. As you regular readers will recall I am 6’6″ tall so I look an absolute idiot on one….. ho hum!!!

So I was looking out for a bike and I found one that was a decent price and wasn’t a complete wreck, but it was in Dundee (6 hours plus away from the HJP Garage) So enter stage left the bike courier.






The bike Courier did a cracking job and delivered the bike which was accepted…
