New South West Member.
« on: December 21, 2021, 12:28:39 PM »
Hi all,

Just a quick introduction, I've finally got round to restoring a late RD200 that I have owned for many years with the intention of riding it to the Isle of Man for the TT in June (if it doesn't get cancelled again!) so I thought I would join the club. This place is a great source of information, I've really enjoyed browsing over the last few weeks.

I need a few bits and pieces for it so if anyone has any old 125/200 bits kicking around I'd love to know what you've got. I'll stick a post in the wanted section with some finer details.

Keep up the good work

Ollie.

Welcome Ollie.
The forum is a bit quiet these days. There is a Whatsapp group for Devon based RD owners. Drop me a pm with your mobile number and I will add you.

Perhaps the site is quiet because members are being poached away.

Being a member of several other forums this one is quite lively compared to some , the yamaha owners club one is nearly getting its last rights 2 posts in the last week saying happy xmas in the whole forum , I personally try to use the FB page to point people this way to find info , and the SW whatsapp group is more to organise meets etc than tech info, Oh ED , Ollie works with Paul at Newton Abbott

Thanks for the welcome chaps,

It is one of the last 200's on a B plate, I have stuck a post up in the wanted section already so fingers crossed someone might have some unwanted bits lying around!

I think this forum is great and I will browsing it regularly for sure, it's always nice to know that people are local for rideouts/help etc. I will pm my number over shortly  :D
