Getting My 916 In Two Weeks!

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by don quixote, Jan 5, 2018.

  1. Hey all,
    So as the title says - yepp im getting my dream bike in approx 2 weeks.
    Now you might laugh but... "newbie hangout" is very fitting here. You see, i passed my test on the 9th Nov. (2 months ago) Hadn't rode a bike since i had a KMX in the 90's..
    So my dream bike will sit in my garage for a long time until ive got my riding skills up to more than a DAS pass rate.

    Anyway im glad to be here and thx for having me. If anybody can point me in the direction of finding a rear paddock stand it would be very much appreciated.

  4. Ooooo, pics?

    Paddock stand? eBay is your friend, or post an ad for one in here. :upyeah:

  5. Like @jack999s, I also have a couple of German one's which I initially found on ebay and then ended up ordering via the website linked below...

    Very Chunky and well made, never had any concerns when using these ones like I have some similar priced ones I have had in the past.

  11. @GunZenBomZ Done thanks! Thanks for all the replies!
    Its a 1995 biposto. I've done some reading and im looking to have a mono tail for the main look, but keep the bp tail if needed (and the bp sub frame obv.). Ive already found the correct pillion seat and i want to add termignoni exhaust by the summer. jack999s I took your advice and purchased the paddock stand you suggested, so thanks.

  16. Or do yourself a massive favour and spend £50 on a 1098 stand and don't worry about her falling over.


    Bike looks tip-top.

  17. Welcome, great bike (and a good idea to build riding experience before taking it out).
