Hi All,

Thought I'd introduce myself, I'm Jamiman based in Notts UK.

Had a blackbird sat on the driveway for a couple of months and passed my MOD2 yesterday so finally got to take it out for a ride. I've ridden a few bikes 700cc+ but this is just something else!

Only got the chance to 'give it beans' once so far but I went from 20 to 50 in the time it took me to look down at the speedo. Think I'm gonna need a few pairs of brown trousers until I get used to it :D:D:D

If anyone nearby fancies a ride out when the weather picks up a bit let me know, would be nice to introduce the bird to a few of its brothers and sisters :O

Hey! Jamiman! Just a suggestion. Since your coming from the 750 Vulcan you may (depending on how tall you are and haven't experience any discomfort yet...) want to look into bar risers and/or helibars. They will offer you better comfort for both your wrist and ultimately yur back. YES! Yur!

Welcome aboard from the best Biking roads in the SW, Dorset. You'll get the gist, aim it and squirt, hang on! In that order.
