Re: What do you want to vent about today?

Hope you get sorted, cav. Try not to let the bastards grind you down. My BIL has been having similar issues. It seems if you have worked once, then you are capable of doing so forever with no help. However sit on your arse all your life, make sure you have a stick and the Govt will throw money at yo...

Re: Brexit Round 2

:D :D :D :D

the UK voting public has been taken for complete mugs by **** like Dyson, IDS, Rees-Mogg, Johnson. They will all be busy lining their pockets whilst we will all be poorer.

I really hope history judges them for the twats they really are.

Streetfighter 1098 test ride

Grabbed a few hours this afternoon to have a test ride on that 1098SF i looked at last week. Its an 09 reg with 12k on the clock. It looks immaculate and like new. It was registered new in the UK but has spent the last few years in Ireland and is still on an Irish plate. As with all test rides i too...

Death of the DVD.

Another example where a few people in the market ( Netflix, Sky, Amazon) will hold all the cards and you will have little option but to buy through them?

Re: Jaguar Land Rover

I have clients who have worked in JLR Castle Bromwich until a few weeks ago and they say it appears its slowly being wound down.

Re: World's longest sea crossing

They've been able to do it for over 150 years. I don't think it's anything new. They've been able to do it....or it's been considered feasible to do it? They have been able to do it and the Scandinavians have already done it and i traveled on it just a few weeks ago. Its a strange sensation emergin...

Re: Brexit Round 2

Malta is one of the biggest and worst tax havens in Europe. As a result it attracts the very worst of people. Was watching a programme a few weeks back where journalists who are uncovering the worst aspects of it are under threat and one was blown up and killed by a car bomb last year. Money launder...

Re: Brexit Round 2

Good to see another Brexit funder following his own advice and investing in Britain. (facepalm)

Dyson is a tax avoider who 'pays' his tax in Malta and doesn't manufacture anything in the UK.

What a total ****!

Re: What are you doing today ??

This is the servicing link I should have posted up. The 11 degree Testasretta engines have much longer belt service intervals. I guess the design is different somehow.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Did something similar myself this afternoon. Taking fairly local roads but ones i don't really know or even been down before. Its amazing what you see with your head up and even more so on the Multi when i can see over many of the hedges.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Maybe I don't need another bike after all.

An hour out on the Multi feeling the front wheel skimming the road at xxx mph is very life affirirming.

Bautista to ride Lorenzo's factory Ducati at PI.

#DucatiTeam wish to confirm that #AlvaroBautista will step in as replacement rider for #JorgeLorenzo in next weekend's #AustralianGP. Welcome on board Álvaro! #ForzaDucati

Think his results on the satellite bike warrant it.

Re: What you watching?

The 15.17 to Paris. They show the three guys meeting up at a hotel in Rome but......I'm thinking I recognise that street. And it's not in Rome but in Paris. And we just checked. It's the road where stayed in Paris last year. How weird. The street when we stayed in it. IMG_1408res.png And the same s...
