    I want too go to some but there are rarely any near me D: iv been to a supervise rally with my brother on his Honda cbr600F. I was gonna join a local club but I couldn't turn up to the first meet and I think they've forgotten about me. Plus it was all old people.

    In all fairness there is quite a few rallies on down there! Exmouth which alternates with western super mare, woolacombe and the isle of wight. Razz

    Lucas and Ratvespa on here are from down your way-ish

    There's a load of lads doing Lands end to John O'groats all on 50cc's (including fizzies and apes) so there's no excuse...

    And 45-50 is optimistic for a 50 int it? Suspect

    Yes he does have a point, but if the rally is about 50-60 miles away it is only a couple of hour journey.

    Mate, my VBB will go 45mph tops on a good day with the wind behind you downhill! Wink That's a 150cc as well. Smile
    Haha, welcome though mate. Me and a mate are from Barnstaple if you ever are around our way? Smile

    Ahhh, very true. The old bird don't half look good for her age, even though she's in bits!
    Still, saying 40-45mph tops is no excuse! Wink

    Is there much in the way of tuning options for these old girls? Not anything wild, but I would say you could do with a few more mph...
