Re: Employment terms contracts?

That's what the swines want you to think, but there's always alternatives.
Although your workplace may not (yet?) have a recognised trade union, there's nothing preventing you from joining one and...

Re: Yamaha MT125 VVT

Re: Employment terms contracts?

Presumably you get paid for the bank holidays as well?

If not your employer is breaking employment law.

Minimum paid holiday in UK is 28 days.

Re: Employment terms contracts?

Yes, it would cost more.
Which is why the gig economy exists and is increasing.

Re: Win10 1903

Chrome devices have 6.5 years of auto updates starting from when they first go on sale.
"Ubuntu on win7"..... Was this a VM? A VM is always going to be clunky.
Wipe Windows, use Linux instead.

Yes I'll give you that, the SV is reliable and reasonable on maintenance.

Re: First world problems and bike dilemas

Does your 900 tracer have the assymetric dash and fuel cap like the MT-09?
Daft idea.

If you're going to Ye Honda Shoppe, ask them about servicing costs for the VFR.

Comparison tests between the SV and MT-07 generally go like this...

Engine:
SV old, been on the go for ages, MT young, new and funky

Re: Tyre/screw advice

If it wuz me I would change the tyre.
Even if the carcass hasn't been punctured, the rubber now has a cut in it and that's never good.
You would've been better with it going straight through imo.
