Hello everyone

Hi all. I know a few of you here from other forums and meets, but thought I’d introduce myself to those I don’t.

My name is Dave (obviously) and I live in Taunton in Somerset.

I’ve had Ducatis for six years or so now - and right now I have:

620 Monster (the wife’s - but she hasn’t ridden in ages :unamused: )
600 Monster DD bike (still awaiting repair after a big off at Oulton)

I’ve also got a KTM SuperDuke and a couple of RGV250 VJ23s (I’ve got a thing about v-twins you see). Oh and a Yamaha TTR250 for the obligatory winter off-roading.

Looking forward to chatting with you all.


Hi and Welcome ,

You will find this forum more friendly than most. :smiley:


Thanks Fred :slight_smile:

Hello and welcome, nice bikes there, was down there at Bristol Bike show, well, Shepton mallet !!

Hello Dave.
Welcome to the club, I’m a also a closet TTR250 owner!
Mine’s a 1996 raid, what’s yours?

Thanks for the welcome Kevin.

My TTR is an 04 - I bought it in '05 with less than 100 miles on the clock from somebody who won it in a competition. It find it great off-road - nice and easy for someone of my limited skills. I’ve made a few mods to make it even more friendly. It has a lowering link on the suspension and a cut-down seat, frame protectors and bash plate by CRD, Renthal bars and mini indicators on the rear. The one weak spot seems to be the headlight - I am on my third after repeatedly smashing them over the years!
