Re: The Veg Plot.

It never occurred to me how much plastic is in weed membrane until I unearthed some I put down more than ten years ago. The mulch I put on top broke down super fast and became soil before I realised...

Re: Forum Changes ?

Pretty sure you're right Col. A lot of folk wandered off to Friendface and the overall popularity of the model dropped a little, causing quite a drop in footfall. A GSX-F forum I used to be on (when...

Re: Got myself a BMW

Does look fun. Not sure how legal that plate is...

One thing that looks odd to me though is the front tyre. I thought the tread block chevrons should point in the direction of travel, like the...

Re: Rebuild update.

Always had a soft spot for the Katana (the classic one, not the modern monstrosity or the dreadfully mis-named mopeds).

The zorst on your current mock up looks fruity :cool:

Re: The All New Megathread

Cannot believe how nice the weather has been today. Considering how I drove through biblical rain on both of the past two days when I had places to go it seems unfair that while stuck in the study...

Re: Rebuild update.

I'm sure you'll make the right choice with the bodywork Mr C.

I sat on an SV650 at the Show yesterday and fondly remembered how it made me feel when I had one back in the day. And then I wondered...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I'm convinced Blackvue are doing it on purpose :o

My GOTD is the shockingly bad way the NEC treats bikers that arrive by car. Today I was forced into the furthest away car South carpark, itself...

Re: 8.7 seconds ...

The STrippple 765 I had as a loaner when Hugh had his first service scared the life out of me so flip knows what that sort of a monster would do to my nerves.

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Why does the app for my car's dashcam only work if I turn off the mobile data BEOFRE I open the app? Had a kit fitted to Lady Poppy's car today and managed to get the app working on her phone once...

Re: The All New Megathread

It absolutely hosed it down on me all the way to Nottingham this morning. I was exhausted by the time I dropped the car off for a dashcam fitting. Escaped across the road for a decidedly mediocre...

Re: Artemis launch

I still find articles about the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programmes fascinating, mainly due to the experimentation and testing needed in a pretty much pre-computer era. With all the modelling...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

BT are getting a bit like Sky in their constant price hikes. We only stayed this time as one of the price options was so much lower and we'd also have to move our discounted mobile phone sims too. In...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

BT. Got an email the other day - our fixed term home phone and broadband deal is coming to an end. We can do nothing and the price goes up by a lot, we can upgrade for suspiciously exactly the same...

Re: The All New Megathread

I cannot believe I got the mower out this afternoon and cut the lawn! It's been so mild so far the grass is still growing well and most of the deciduous shrubs and trees in the garden still have half...

Re: The All New Megathread

The 8S, just like the new Hornet, fails my topbox test. They'd both look ridiculous with one fitted but I like having one, so its a thing for me.

Have now seen some videos from MotoBob on the...

I feel rubbish today, probably a reaction to the flu jab.

Still, I was very good and did not hunt down the new bike announcements from Honda and Suzuki until lunchtime. I've already mentioned in...

Sorry to say that the new V-Strom 800 looks absolutely horrible on the screen. I'll hunt it down in two weeks at the NEC but I cannot...
