Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

It seems that it's waterproof to 50m, but by calling it water-resistant, they're getting out of any...

Depth under water - useful if you're a diver. It can handle up to 6 atmospheres of pressure.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

This will likely be what you need to do. You'll get the money back, but not necessarily quickly.

We had a holiday cancelled in March 2019 (at 10:30 the night before) and the company went bust. We...

Re: Tacho not working sv650 X 1999

It's been a while, but here's my recollection. (This is for the gen 1 SV650, not SV650S which is different).

The tacho is easy to replace, but hard to get hold of. Two things can go wrong with it...

Re: DVLA and losing bike licence entitlements

I didn't send mine back at all when I had it replaced, and no one asked for it. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Is it also a bus lane? You don't need much signage for that.

Re: trip meter resets after switching off bike

I've no idea about the 2018 SV, but as it's a bit modern, have you checked that you can't configure trip A to reset after a refuel? That's what my car does, and it's quite useful ... but set in the...

The way it works is that when someone generates a block, some sort of consensus is gained and everyone starts working on the new block. It is possible that two people generate different blocks, but...

It doesn't permit trade, you can still meet up with someone and exchange goods. Money permits you to do it remotely, but relies on the government/central bank to guarantee its value. The blockchain...

That is actually an incredibly accurate analogy of NFTs. Along with cryptocurrency, it's fascinating and has the potential to change trade fundamentally, but has a massive environmental cost which...

Wall to wall sunshine without being too hot, and I have the day off as it was my wife's birthday yesterday - first recreational ride of the year, and it was fabulous. :-)

Re: Do you refuel on the side stand or centre stand/centred?

As I understand it, it's a pre-auth, so you're charged 1 but with 99 reserved - you won't see it anywhere except in your "available to spend" total which will be lower than your balance + overdraft...

Re: Do you refuel on the side stand or centre stand/centred?

Re: Do you refuel on the side stand or centre stand/centred?

I've always filled up my bikes sitting on them. I realise it's probably not best practice, but with "pay at pump" I don't even get off to pay these days.
