    Re: Calling all bikers!

    I learned to drive on a Yamaha RD 50, then had a Honda XL 250 then Yamaha RD 250 LC, my partner at the time built me a Triumph tiger cub from spares he collected over many years, he had many big bikes & still drives, ive many happy memories of bike days but never actually drove the big bikes.

    Ah, Viragos! I love them and would have one again if I didn't leave near the sea, the salt plays havoc with all that shiny chrome.

    Which side of the definition are you using here? ;-

    Virago is a pejorative name for a verbally abusive and angry woman. It is derived from Latin virago, which means "resembling (-ago) a man (vir)" and was a positive word used to describe heroic females, usually in a mythological context.

    I never did understand why they chose that name. Makes you wonder what the V stands for in the V-Max - it's meant to be a right harradin to ride :-)

    Sorry Ferratta, I've only just seen this, I hope you're still about to reply!

    Wow, Blackbirds are fab! I would love one of those, if only I could fit on one!
    I know you only need to put one foot down when you stop, but I'd have to lean quite a way just to get one foot on the floor and I'd probably end up dropping it!

    Yorkshire certainly is a gorgeous place to ride around!
