Re: Honda CBR600RR Track Bike

Cheeky feck! I seem to remember a complaint on the last rideout that every time you looked in your mirrors to see if you'd got rid of the Yellow Daytona, it has just gotten bigger ;-)

The company was sold and the buyer had no interest in continuing to make...

Re: What is the point in a gift voucher?

I wouldn't send cash in the post, only a cheque.

Re: Abba stand are they worth the money?

Re: '13 Ireland Summer SV Road Trip Plan

Anyway - he looks like Bruno Mars when he wears his shades, and his girlfriend looks like a ginger hottie, THEN he tells us she's actually a blonde hottie.

Re: Abba stand are they worth the money?
