  1. Bird Info guy

    Bird Info guy Font of all useless info !

    Welcome to the forum ! Enjoy !!
    Please read the following info.. It is worth the effort :p

    About three years ago our then server host ( who let us use their server for free ) screwed things up so badly BIRD was down for 5 months !

    On top of that their admin kept messing with our forum and generally poking their nose in.

    I contacted what members I could and between us ( them ! LOL ! ) it was decided a new

    independent server and forum software was needed. I bit the bullet , paid for a server and software licence.

    At the time I was still working, but when I retired a load of the members said it was unfair I should cough the lot every year and it was suggested we use a ‘sponsor’ system.

    I worked out if we got enough members £5.50 a year should cover the cost..

    It hasn’t quite as yet but we are close..:)

    A lot of history really, but it is why only some sections of BIRD are open to all, and you have to become a full member to get the lot.

    As someone said, at £5.50 a year it is about the price of a couple of coffees and it is pretty clear no one is gonna make any dosh out of it all :)

    As said, some sections ( inc the tech section) is only available to sponsors

    I do hope you understand, and hope you sign up to the bloody lunacy that is BIRD and help keep the lights on !

    Hi and welcome to the BIRD forum.. this is the forum for members of B.I.R.D ., the uk based international Blackbird owners club.

    If you do not own a Bird ( or indeed do not even want to own one ! ) that should not stop you joining in the fun.,.
    Whilst a lot of the stuff is Bird related we have many members who do not own an XX but some other ( LESSER :p ) type of bike.
    But all are welcome as we are a sociable bunch ..

    I would suggest you take your time to browse for a while..
    You will see there is much urine extracting..
    This is not meant in a nasty way.. so be prepaired for a certain about of abuse and banter !
    Do not 'cop the hump' .. if you feel abuse or whatever is out of order, simply inform admin and let one of us sort it out..
    There is not a lot to be gained by getting all hot and bothered over what could well be a genuine misreading of the situation. !!

    As an aside, please remember this is primarily a bikers forum, and some content will not be for the feint hearted.. We have three strict rules

    The rules of the forum are only three fold:
    No one can post anything wishing someone has an accident
    You cannot post shite on a thread in the help section until a useful answer has been given
    You cannot use the C word in any posts

    Now, off you go and enjoy :p !

    what what what......I've been busy getting some race cans fitted to the bike and having way to much time playing on the bike to be on the inter-web.....do you girls actually have bikes??

    If so what are you doing here....it's not winter yet8ree!

    Errrr Paul... Please let me know when and where you wil be available mate..
    And also let us know what mods you have done to get a genuine 180 out of your bike.. obviously far more than changing cans and filter.. at least a head job and maybe a cam reprofile ??

    I am only an old fart and am running pretty much standard everything ( apart from a few odds and sods.. ) but would like to see what you got that makes you so agressive ..

    Ohhh.. here is an idea.... As you in London, shall we say Harlow to Hunstanton.. Lots of motorway to show off that 180, and then A roads to demonstrate your 'making progress' skills...

    Orrrr... you choose... But if you wanna go track side I will leave the bird at home and use a little 400 if thats ok by you.. you can use the bird of course, no worries :p
