Hi, I recently traded my Honda VFR800Vtec V4 motorcycle in for a Black 2004 1.8 MX5 Euphonic and so far, I am not disapointed. Is not as fast but just about as much fun!

I am from Dumfries.

Any others in this neck of the woods?

How do you upload photos?

Hello and welcome. We do have a few members from D&G although they are not on the forum much, as a Club we try and get to your Area a least a couple of times per year, we sometimes spend the weekend and meet with the Tyne Tees Area, hope to see you. You also have some of the best roads in Scotland but shh, don't tell everyone. :lol:

Hi Douglas,

thanks for the reply. I will keep an eye out for any runs planned.

I managed to upload a photo althout the reg number is different now ( changed it to a private plate - my log on in fact ).

You gave up your bike and got an MX5 :shock: I hope you won't regret that mate, i have a bike (CBR600) and no car, not even an MX5 even comes close to it for me.

Anyway: welcome, and yes you live in a beautiful area with stunning roads :D

Bike to MX5

Postby R5MXR » Thu Dec 20, 2007 8:46 am

Hi Mailman,

it did take some soulsearching but after for many and varies reasons, I went for it and so far not regretting it.

Come the spring / summer, it will be hard but I will be able to get the top down to make the MX5 experience that bit more special.

See attached photo, specially for the Scottishness section of this forum!

Hello and welcome to the forum

Welcome. Whilst it may not be quite as exciting as a bike, it is still good fun and I'm sure you'll enjoy driving the MX-5.

This spring when you are swiftly overtaken somewhere on that magnificent A76 by a red 'n black CBR, which then leans into the next bend... :wink:

But the MX5 is about the most fun you can buy on four wheels, enjoy it :D

Then when said red/black CBR hits a pile of Coo excrement and has a bit of a wobble to itself, I will sail back past it again with the wind in my hair!!

I tend to avoid those... the old bikers' adagium 'look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go' :wink:
