Re: IoM hopping mad?

Rather one of those than a deer, I think.....but either could ruin your day if it was big enough. That little fawn I hit years ago just exploded on impact ....but that was a tiny fcuker. Barely cracked the left side lower. Frickin' leg was killing afterwards.

Re: Chinese Levers

Not always the case Ross, my ASVs went back twice under warranty because they faded. The Chinese one I have now are 2 years old and haven't faded. To be fair to ASV they have a lifetime warranty (or some warranty I can't rememebe how long) so easily take back and get a new pair. ...

Re: 2019 provisional Motogp calendar

They had it in June for years and the weather was shit every year.

The calendar has to fit around the logistics of moving 50 trucks and 2000 people round the world.

Re: If you get stopped in the Thames Valley, Hants or West M

... I have passed ever since. Great that they can. However i think legally it should be a requirement for everyone to have an eye sight every few years if you drive.

Re: RIP The Bandit

Sad news. I seem to remember that he hadn't been well these past few years. The guy will always be remembered for his slapstick, but behind all that was some serious acting skills.

Re: Chinese Levers

I bought a set of these for 15 quid thinking I'd buy some ASV later on. Still on the bike 2 years later as they've been brilliant and can't see the ASVs being 10 times better.
