Re: Odd conversation with biker

... 1000s. It made sense as riding a bike is a bit dangerous at times and the old 1 litre bikes used to love a highside. But modern bikes have TC and other features which allow you ride what you like with a bit of a safety blanket in place. I really loved my Street. Under 100bhp but light and handled ...

Odd conversation with biker

... riding a year and currently rode an Er-6 and b) as someone who has owned an STR, yeah its easy to ride, but my god is it capable of embarrassing other bikes big time. It was just a really odd conversation, I asked if she had ever ridden one and she said she had, It was all a bit odd after that, ...

Re: More anarchy on the streets

Other police officers have reported being unable to attend to calls for help from their fellow officers. Yet more is expected of the Police. As services ...

Re: Audi e-tron - the future

Watched a programme the other day where calculations are that in the UK a hot summers day will be low 40s C and winter days will average double figures. And all within 30 years from now.

Re: Brexit Round 2

... before March 2019. I don't believe that parliament would vote for a No Deal either. Nobody can be in any doubt now that that would be anything other than economic suicide.

Re: Audi e-tron - the future

There's a lot of "What-if's?" there.

But that's an old codger talking...the young generation will embrace this stuff without a second thought (while I, on the other hand, will be eating all my meals through a straw).

Re: World Mental health Day

... and depressive moods from my son Byron and his ASD. I’m glad in part I’ve had to experience it as it’s made me more aware of keeping an eye on other people. I’d rather make a pain of myself checking up on someone than err on the side of caution and regret it later. I’m very lucky I’m with someone ...

Re: World Mental health Day

There's an unnecessary stigma that is all-too-often attached to mental health issues. Any other part of the body is not entirely well, and you're sick, poorly, ill, etc.....they all garner sympathy. Mental issues arouse suspicion, hostility, mistrust, etc. Mental issues ...

Re: What are you doing today ??

... managed to get discounts in certain things and got it 15 quid cheaper than last year. I'm sure if I went online I could find it cheaper with some other company that I prob haven't even heard of with a HQ address of somewhere in the middle of the desert. But happy with a big company with UK or ...

Re: Nutz's 990 Superduke

... power, the speedo quickly confirmed this was not the case. The only real downside is it doesn't pop so much on overrun anymore :( Good work! The other thing to watch is chain tension - check it regularly. My RC8 really doesn't like a loose chain low down on the power curve and that makes it a ...

Re: A fling with an Africa Twin Adventure Sports

... sporty and comfortable. It's a very polished bike. I wouldn't take one off road though. I know people do, but it's more road orientated than the other bikes mentioned. The 1090 is a workhorse, a lot like the Versys. There's not much to it, just a decent engine and the ability to take a daily ...

Re: Front wheel noise

... pads will be very slighly more worn than the back edge perhaps, so when you wheel it backwards the back edge catches the holes in the disc. The other way of checking without taking anything off is to force the pads away from the disk with a flat edge and then wheel it backwards as the pads will ...
