Dropped My Bike Today.

... at the junction. I approached the junction in 2nd gear and thought I'd shifted down to 1st with the intent of not coming to a standstill but being able to stop if necessary. So, I'm in 1st gear (so I thought) and can see that the road is clear to turn right onto. I open the throttle to find ...

Re: Popped over for an hour

Re: The price of privatising education

Well....Greece being full of foreigners is a given.

London has to be one of the most diverse cities in the world in terms of people...their ethnicity, nationality, etc......wouldn't you agree??

Re: What are you doing today ??

Got the kids back as I would’ve technically got back from work last night. So slotted back into parent routine. Was weird being home but not having them, thought I did steal a day on Fathers Day.

Re: What you watching?

Yeah...Tom Clancy did the same thing in one of his novels....airplane being flown into The Capitol Building & destroying the seat of govt., the President, etc.

Is this really that far removed from WW2 Kamikaze fanatics sacrificing themselves for a "higher cause"??

Cannabis clubs and the Police

... clubs, which seems sensible. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45288789 I do think we'll see a gradual change in policy over the next 10 years with it being licenced and sold in approved shops.

Re: What ails you today?

... Good bikes, very accomplished. Easy to wheelie as well (devil) For someone that can’t wheelie for peanuts I find that too, but I always blame Jess being on the back (lol)

Re: A fling with an Africa Twin Adventure Sports

... out for a test ride to compare the two. Yes that would be a good comparison. I've heard the AS model has a lot firmer suspension in addition to being taller. Possibly you may prefer the standard AT. I'd be after the AS mainly duebto the larger 24L tank. But my ride on the AT standard but with ...

A fling with an Africa Twin Adventure Sports

... for having harsh suspension but it suits me. I like feedback through the bars and seat and this bike gives. The brakes slow the big ATAS without being harsh or suggesting that you're going to get into trouble. For the opening few minutes you expect the bike to stall when you're braking, but it ...
