Re: Wheel colour opinions

Gloss black all over, as shiny as you can get.
Easiest to keep clean.
Speaking from bitter experience, avoid white or light colours or exposed alloy on the rims at all costs.

Re: Are SV1000 really an investment?

Can't see why anyone would pay over 2500 for an SV1000 when you can get a decent VTR1000 for around a grand less?

Re: Central Heating Boilers:

Worcester Bosch use a lot of Italian made parts.
Every part I've ever had replaced in a Worcester boiler (one gas, two oil) was made in Italy.

Re: new Suzuki Katana

Hopefully that's just the welcome screen and disappears to be replaced by more useful info.
If that's on all the time its as bad as the swingarmudguard.

Re: new Suzuki Katana

Sorry, but the swingarm is no place for a mudguard or numberplate.
Maybe there's an aftermarket tail untidy option to switch to a proper mudguard...?

Re: new Suzuki Katana

I think Honda were trying to allude to the SR-71 rather than the feathery flappy thing.
The SR-71 was a beast of a thing, send a ballistic missile after it and all the pilot needs to do is open the...

Re: another Darwin award candidate

The scale of the USA justice system problem is something I became aware of by watching the documentary 13th on Netflix.

Re: another Darwin award candidate

Because the "justice system" in the USA is run as a private industry.
People are incarcerated in order to provide slave labour for big business.

95% of prison inmates in the USA have never been...

Re: ABS Defeat Switch

Nope, not a single human alive on the face of the earth is able to do what ABS can do.
ABS can decide to hold or release the brakes fifteen times per second.
A human can't.

Re: new Suzuki Katana

Sorry, imo the bike in the picture looks simply appalling.
Can't think of a single positive thing to say about it other than: at least it isn't a Harley.
