every shot driver over the age of 40 IMO

They would all complain.

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

Couldn't agree more a retest every 1p years is doable in my opinion and would gain the government some money in the process. Yesterday I was following a old bloke in a csr that was far too big for him in my opinion, who slammed on his brakes ...

Re: What are you doing today ??

Belt change every two years isn't that attractive to me. 848 is a much better ownership prospect imo.
Besides it's not how much power you have but how you use it :)

... version came under new servicing intervals which the 1098 didn't. I may be wrong though. Michael Neeves at MCN had an 848 as a long termer a few years back (the vids are on YouTube) and he reckoned it was the better bike too. He had both as long termers. Yes I had seen that one Blade. It's the ...

Re: Dropped helmet.

Dropped from waist height.....fine. Dropped from head height....be wary. Someone told me that years ago as a general rule to go by & it stuck with me. I have no idea it it's true, but it sounds legit. But with carpet down to cushion the fall, I honestly wouldn't worry ...

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

Yep...I'd go with that. My Dad was 17 when he met my Mam, and they were together for @ 60 years. It'd be ludicrous if a life shared in such a manner didn't have a deep impact upon someone's soul.

Re: Kwacky's ongoing Africa Twin Adventure Sport review

I tried a 675 a few years ago, and on my panic-brake test the lights started doing something daft like that. When I asked about it, that was the explanation I got.

I don't think you test yourself or learn anything (that's not a dig at anyone who has owned the same bike for a few years :D) so it's going to take me time to switch from being able to just riding it to gelling with it. I plan to own it for a while so there's no rush ...

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.
