Re: Brexit Round 2

I suspect we are on the brink of a constitutional crisis.

The stupidity of how poorly the whole referendum issue has been handled is now coming home to roost. And i bet it is us people who work our butts off who will end up paying the biggest price of it all.

Re: A Third bike

KTM Superduke? The latest Speed Triple RS gets some cracking reviews. It proved to be quicker round Donington than the Street in Michael Rutter’s hands and I notice that Fast Bikes has it quicker round a kart track than either the Superduke or Tuono. Still think that 1050 engine is probably the best...

Re: Scooters

If i get a scooter it will be a 250 minimum, they're better value used as there's much less demand for anything over 125 and the extra grunt would be nice to have while still being cheap to run. If you do a search of ebay, there are 125cc scooters with well over 25k miles and still selling for a go...

Re: Stow Breakfast - 9th Dec @10

No problems, I thought I would see if anyone is about. I can't do the following weekend and the one after that is probably too close to Christmas. Providing the weather is ok and I'm back by 1pm I'm in. Might need to clean the mouldy bug splats off first though (blush) I wouldn't bother. By the tim...

Scooters

That said i will orbably end up buying something like an Italjet or Peugeot Speedfight just because they look cool. Anyone else done this before? Someti...
