  1. i love my NC700X. they really are the business. Up the Wye Valley i can hustle it as fast as my FZR1000 and my ZX10R. talking of which is anyone else doing Hogging the Bridge tomorrow?

  3. Ive had a book called 'Build your own Electric Vehicle' by Bob Brant for years. I bought in California in the early noughties- the self build EV scene has been massive there since the oil crisis. It's an excellent read. Hopefully we'll see the arrival of affordable motors and controllers, as that was the barrier to this before.
  4. oops. y'know what i meant....
  5. I know this has been discussed previously, but i was just looking on scumtree at sub-£1 bikes and there seems to be a glut of good stuff. Bandits, VFRs, FZRs etc. Anyone looking right now appears have a buyers market. I look regularly and havent seen so many for so long. https://www.gumtree.com/search?search_category=motorbikes-scooters&search_location=caldicot&seller_type=private&q=&distance=75&min_price=&max_price=1000

  10. Went out and did a 325 miles spin on my NC700 to St David's and Strumblehead. Didnt leave until 200pm and went via M&P. As i was pulling out of Fishguard to come back [at 745pm] it started to lash down and did all the way back. Got bloody soaked. M4 was treacherous too. Good fun overall. Averaged 90mpg too - a bit better than the Gamma got yesterday....
  11. That's like when you think you are tightening up a bolt into a captive/blind nut and it isnt and it's spinning. In fact it's a metaphor for most of my life.
  12. Went out and did 200 miles on my RG250. Up to stratford, then Malvern, then Hereford. Apart from a few fixings rattling loose, it went very well. The rebuilt forks were a revelation and made the handling a lot, lot better.
