Hi all!

I am a Hornet owner from the Netherlands.
I have been riding since 2003 on my slightly modified 2003 Hornet.

Absolutely still love the bike!
Just came across this forum and I think it is a great one.
Thanks that I also can be part of the Hornets Nest....

Hello and welcome Warpig :D

That's a great looking Hornet.

Love the tail unit and the Akra :clap

I'm thinking of fitting clip-on handlebars to my Hornet - are you enjoying riding the Hornet with clip-ons fitted?

Thanks Hoon98!

I actually enjoy the clip-ons a lot.
Especially on track days.
But for the longer rides it is a bit heavy on the wrists (but maybe this is also because the mono-seat is higher then the normal seat).

After a nose dive in the gravel at Assen the motor landed on the rear so I was forced to upgrade the good old Hornet...
Still work in progress, at the moment I'm working on a custom made subframe so the rear shock has more space.

Other side...

Thanks Warpig - I'll go ahead and fit some clip-ons to mine and see how I get on.

The tail unit looks very good - the proportions are perfect. :D
