Re: Saturday 25th July ride-out to the seaside.

But the smoke screen saves you so much money in speeding fines.

Re: The Safe Home Thread AR 2015

I got home safe too. Considered going out for a ride after dropping off my stuff then fell asleep for most of Sunday :)

Re: Where is everyone?

Leaving work in an hour, pack the bike then taking a less than direct route there. Probably be putting my tent up in the dark. But that's not unusual for me :)

Re: The Dog ate my homework.

Nice night, Soho mobbed but no one out. Back home for a curry I go!

Re: Top Gear is back

Rumour's of Guy Martin doing Top Gear are hotting up. Can't say I think it'd be the right choice for him, but would be interesting to see what he made of the program. I can't imagine him being happy...

Re: Test ride challenge

I'd forgotten about the V-Strom 1000. Not immediately in the market for a new bike but certainly thinking about it for the start of next year. Certainly looks like a nice bike in that photo. May have...

Re: Fear is slowing me down. Any help?

I'm sure you've read most of what the guys have already told you before, and it's great advice, but surprisingly difficult to follow.

One thing which I found gave me a confidence boast was to go...

Re: Car 10w 40 oil ok?

That's interesting. I wonder why it is so bad for the oil to be used in a gearbox when a gearbox oil change is such a rare even in a cars life. Often reaching the scrapheap with the same oil in the...

Re: Watch out for this scam everyone

My friend does a public service by trying to keep them on the phone as long as possible pretending to do what they say. Then eventually letting slip that he's using an Apple or something else. Has...

Re: 2014 SV650 Rich Map/Fast Idle

There is an air intake temperature sensor. Perhaps if you took it straight from inside at 25 degrees to the outside the sensor wouldn't have had time to cool down. So your theory sounds plausible to...

Someone has taken our current flat so I get to move to the new one this week rather than next month :)

Re: Garage defender

It's a bit tricky, a bit like deciding where to leave your bike. Leave it somewhere people are unlikely to be aware that it is there, hopefully they don't find it and never try to steal it, but if...

Re: How to connect 12v accessory socket?

Check out Bibio's gizmo. It's really the easiest way to fit something electrical to your bike and has the benefit of not leaving you stuck in the middle of no-where when you leave what ever it is...

Re: Chinese POS.

Yeah, not sure what state the brakes are in. If she starts riding it reasonably often I'll get her to bring it round and give the calipers a clean and change the fluid. Pointless doing it now as...

Re: Chinese POS.

Yeah, I'd almost convinced myself that it was worth trying to pick one up as cheap transport. My friend got hers for just over 200, and there is almost nothing on them that can't be fixed for the...

Re: Chinese POS.

Yup, New spark, coil, HT lead and boot and away it went. Slightly annoying not knowing exactly which part went but for the sake of 13 in parts, 16 for a cheap battery charger and a few quid for...

Re: Chinese POS.

Took the carb off tonight, to be honest it was pretty much spotless inside. Tiny bit of reside at the bottom of the float bowl but nothing that would account for not starting. Gave them a while over...
