Re: New member

Hi Mike. Welcome to the club. I have not been able to reply to anything recently due to forum issues on my old Mac, which Jorg has kindly now sorted. I bought the damaged black tank, which arrived this morning. It is now filled with the last layer setting overnight before I give it a final sand and ...

Re: Is there a gallery or picture page here?

Hi Joerg.

I have just looked and there is no gallery link on my profile page.

How do I see other people's gallery pictures please, as I cannot find a link to the gallery anywhere?

Thanks,

Biggles

Re: Crash bars or crash bungs

I picked a set of crash bars for my wife's Bulldog some years ago. She had over-balanced on her bike a couple of times until I lowered the suspension 10mm front and rear (drop the fork legs in the yokes and new dog-bone links on the rear suspension) and scratched the engine cases and silencer. The c...

Is there a gallery or picture page here?

Hi Guys.

Is there a gallery or picture page on this site? I can't seem to find it here, and don't know what the equivalent would be in German. Also, what format would be best to use to post pictures? I am not very good on techy stuff but can amend my pictures to suit.

Thanks,

Biggles

Re: Side panel removal

Sounds about right. It is a while since I last did it.

Re: Side panel removal

Hi Krock. Yes, you have to remove the tail piece to get to the * that holds the top rear of the side panel to the frame. You can then lift the side panel up and off the two pegs that hold the bottom of the panel. However, I managed to top-up the rear brake reservoir without removing the side panel b...

Re: Greetings from a newby to this site.

Thanks for all the greetings. I am always up for a coffee and a chat. There is a good place for bikers to meet at a transport cafe just outside Towcester, in Northamptonshire. It's called Jack's Hill Cafe, and they hold regular bike-nights, custom shows, and the renowned "Ton-up Day" for c...

Re: Bulldogs in UK?

Well, you can add another four from me then. That's nearly a 50& increase in numbers! I know of another one as well that was bought by a friend of mine to be used as a donor engine for his beloved XV750. I was going to sell off the remainder of the bike for him, once the engine had been transfer...

Re: Greetings from a newby to this site.

Hi Ralf. The problem in answering your question, is decided what are similar bikes to compare it with. There were not that many bikes that fit into the "roadster" category ten to twenty years ago. When I started riding, 40 odd years ago, all bikes were basically roadsters. The only bikes w...

Re: Greetings from a newby to this site.

I sat down one day about 15 years ago, with a big piece of paper, and worked through all the makes, models, types and different capacities of all the bikes that I could remember owning over the previous years. I counted over 700 then, and in the last 15 years I must have had another 300-400 easily, ...

Re: Bulldogs in UK?

Hi Guys. I think I covered this in a reply to Krock earlier, but here goes again. There are three I know of in Milton Keynes, Bucks.. I sold "Red" to a lovely lady named Stella from the Tiger Mcc near Cambridge, and our friend Dom lives in Newport, South Wales. Apart from that, I don't kno...

Re: Greetings from a newby to this site.

Hi Krock. I am from Milton Keynes, about 40 miles North of London. There are three Bulldogs in MK that I know of (mine called Mr. Pink, my wife's, called, Bella, and a friend's called Spike), and "Red" ended up about 40 miles away from us. Our friend Dom in Wales has a high-mileage 'Dog na...

Re: Greetings from a newby to this site.

Thanks for all your greetings. I am surprised that there is not more activity from the English Bulldog owners, but our forum had grown rather quiet in recent years, with just a few members being active on there. I know that there are not that many Bulldogs on the road in the UK, or up for sale on eB...

Greetings from a newby to this site.

Greetings one and all. I was a member of the (now-defunct) UK Bulldog owner's forum, and have now managed to get onto here after a minor technical issue. I was first introduced to the Bulldog when I persuaded my wife to test ride one nearly ten years ago. We were both hugely impressed, so I surprise...
