Re: The All New Megathread

Chin up Gary. It will feel nice getting your own place again. That will really help.

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

I can understand the refund bit as you paid in for less than a year - that's fairly standard. Shame you were not there for just over the 12 months or you'd probably get a bit more, but at least...

Re: The All New Megathread

Snigger. I always preferred inspector Reagan. SHUT IT! I also really liked the bronze Consul GT they drove in the first two series. Such a shame they swapped to a mk2 silver Granada in series 3...

Re: Too fast?

Sounds about right. For those of us quite happy with 50-odd horses under them (Hugh has 54, the new bike I'm considering has 48) the speedier machines are terrifying. I was given the keys to a...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Hopefully a walk in the hills with a much nicer dog, say a lurcher, will help Gary.

I always find planning something nice helps too, like where to go on a day out geocaching or which seeds I'm...

Re: Honda's new parallel twin

Hopefully the Transalp will be at the NEC show in November so I can see just how tall it is. My guess is too tall, just like the 850/900 Tigers and the Africa Twin. If they made two versions of it...

Re: Honda's new parallel twin

I wish they'd put it into a bigger brother of the CB500X. Looks like it will be powering the new Transalp but that's a lot more offload biased for what i would like as a next bike. Something going...

Re: The Veg Plot.

I have some tuberous peonies that flower for about five minutes a year, and those get cut to the ground once the foliage starts looking manky. They come back every year bigger than ever, and trying...

Re: Rain, thunder and lightning.

I'd just like to point out that I got wet whilst out on the bike today. First time in flip knows how long. Happy to say that the new waterproof gloves I bought ahead of the BP Weekender (and...

Re: The all new slap bang up to date photo of the day 2022

A bit of mist can work wonders in pics so I'm not sure you were happy to catch that one.

Re: A proper haven

Just cycled into town to pick up my dry cleaning thinking, roads are very quiet... Oh yeah, everyone's watching the pomp and ceremony going on at St James's Palace. I rather like all the formality...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Yep, bit mad. Our local tip won't let you in until they see what you have and will not take "DIY waste". Fine, it'll just get bagged in small bits and put in my general use wheelie bin over a few...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

They're actually Yamaha/Royal Enfield/Benelli (and various other things now I think) dealers. The next nearest MoT station is annoyingly a few miles away, but I'll be trying them next instead of...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Customer service, or the lack of. Spannerman cannot fit in Hugh's annual service before his MoT is due so I gritted my teeth and went to my only local shop. I won't name them but there is only one...

Re: The all new slap bang up to date photo of the day 2022

Been meaning to upload some pics from my camera. Found this one on there that I had meant to share a few weeks ago. It flew off just after I took this so I was quite lucky.

Re: The All New Megathread

I've decided never to bother taking anything more than supermarket plonk to my folks in future. Nobody said anything about the nice French reds I took up, although they were all polished off. And the...

Re: The end is nigh?

Don't like the headlight on the current Strom so it will be interesting to see how the new one turns out. They're competing against the Tiger Sport 850 which is very popular, so they need to make it...

Re: Royal Enfield Hunter.

Hopefully we'll get more subdued colour schemes if it comes to the UK. To my eye it looks like a Trumpet Street Twin that's shrunk in the wash, but has nice proportions and will appeal no novice...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I'd be more surprised if we dont don't get civil unrest. It seems inevitable if so many people have to choose between eating and heating.
