Re: A little ride out

Ah ok. Working Weds onwards. Looks like I'll need to be near home the beginning of the week too as family away and Winnie is staying with me. Can't leave her for too long home alone really.

Re: BP weekend 2022

Looks like I'm not going to be able to make it now. Too many things clashing with not enough time off work. I don't mind leaving my money in the pot though if anyone else wants to go?

Re: BP weekend 2022

There's a chance my August calendar might have gone a bit skeewiff. Working out dates that my Dad has booked somewhere for family and other things that may be double or triple booked. Will update as...

Re: Any Sourdough bakers out there?

Do you need to freeze flour? I've never frozen it.

Re: Any Sourdough bakers out there?

I'd use 100% white until you're getting results you want and then gradually add small percentages of wholemeal to see what effect it has. I know wholemeal is a lot more thirsty and heavier too....

Re: Any Sourdough bakers out there?

I've never had much luck with wholemeal flour. I sometimes use 25 percent wholemeal and it comes out like a wholemeal but with more open texture. I followed Hugh Fernely Whiteringons's advice a few...

Re: Any Sourdough bakers out there?

I used to make a lot. Less so since we moved to a house with limited kitchen space. One thing I found over the few years was that the lazier I got the better the bread got. I now use a no knead...

Re: The Veg Plot.

We've been enjoying some very wirey lettuce leaves, basil that my daughter grew and the courgette plants have suddenly gone into overdrive. Courgettes are one of my favourite flowers (along with...

Re: Insurance, groan.

I've been with Bemoto for the last few years. I don't normally stick with the same company year after year but it's been easy with them. Not the cheapest but has worked out cheaper for me due to...

Re: The random rideout pictures thread

I love my RS. Suspension was hard on mine but seems to have got softer as time progresses. A very light and precise feeling bike that's just sporty enough and a great balance of power for real world...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I enquired about a bike that Vines had a while back and they then didn't leave me alone for months afterwards. Very aggressive sales techniques and the guy I spoke to just wanted to tell me that they...

Re: Lowering Footpegs

I had Buell footpegs on my 2007 pointy. Not sure if they'd fit a later model.




EDIT : Realised I mentioned that in this thread already a few years back!

Re: Imperial units

I weigh 11 stone. My local pub is a mile away and sells pints. Newborn children are measured in pounds and ounces. My son rides a bike with 26 inch tyres. Bring back what now?

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Re: The Veg Plot.

Not many of my seeds have germited this year. Got a couple of courgette plants on the go, but aubergines and peppers aren't looking like they're going to happen.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Buy a helping hand. Not expensive and very useful. Also use decent flux, even if you're using flux core solder. Don't use lead free solder.



Also heat the wire from underneath and melt the...
