Re: Bullying

Not really just bullying here. It's theft, and outside school grounds so it's a police matter.
But also totally justified to defend one's person and one's property. I'm with TW unless he's likely to...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Also a useful skill to learn when you drop it and break off the peg.

Other options being riding it everywhere in first. It redlines at well over 50mph :cool:

Get that X-rayed. Knee impacts can have long term implications.

Re: SV650 Front Wheel Jack

I tried the same with some wood and some L brackets, which were far too soft. It didn't end quite as disastrously as it could have!

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Might well be more to do with the compression applied from whatever source you use. Visible banding in dark scenes is unlikely to get improved with a better or newer TV.

Re: sv1000's are now ULEZ exempt

I think the impact is minimal and the people you're hitting are often the least able to manage the expenses.

People ride old bikes into London because they're cheap. They barely cause any...

Re: sv1000's are now ULEZ exempt

My V5 is also blank in those sections.

Apparently what we need is a Certificate of Confirmity, which are available from Suzuki, unfortunately at a charge of 95 :shock:

Re: sv1000's are now ULEZ exempt

yeah the site simply uses the registration to determine when the bike was built and the EURO regs in place at the time. Basically was it built to be EURO4 compliant.

Re: sv1000's are now ULEZ exempt

So you'd expect that the 650 would be as well?

Can we get details of said legwork?

Nice job, btw!

It's really disappointing how people still fall for this. More so in recent times with the tabloids exaggerating everything out of proportion.

Different situation entirely when the lawyers cost more than what you stand to lose or gain. But if one of you qualifies for legal aid, expect to get royally fleeced :rolleyes:

Re: Quote of the day (sorry, Brexit related)

So rather than defend the point being discussed you've just dropped it and moved on to something else?

I see this a lot.

Re: Quote of the day (sorry, Brexit related)

Seems like he's basing the article on the 2 or 3 Brexiteers he's met whilst working in the City.

Not exactly representative.

Re: I want to be rich...

People think differently when they have a lot of money. It becomes a game rather than a matter of survival.
