  1. Airbags. Anyone wear them? I'm considering one for my motorway commute on my recently acquired Maxi scoot
  2. From when I investigated sorting my black death, it certainly sounded like the demoralising task of cleaning up was most of the battle. I'm gonna say that doesn't look too bad though compared to some, crack on!
  3. Fun fact: I spoke to another ULEZ tester up Cambridge way who was a bit more frank about their process to get it to pass. They work on mixture first, either with a "fuel module" which I guess is a resister on the ECU somehere, to richen the mixture, or, get this: BY RESTRICTING THE AIR INTAKE which usually costs in the region of £60. If that fails, they fit a cat. He didn't say in so many words but I'm guessing that you remove the old sock from your intake manifold as soon as you roll out of the yard £240 lighter.
  4. I think that dash is doing me the remind of my brief spell with a Black Death Vito
  5. Nah, the trick is to try to think about all that stuff less. I guess one option would be to write it down and set fire to it 🤷‍♂️
  6. I'd be keeping the absolute fuck out of that- it's ace! There may be some momentary weight lifted in selling it, but I'd say you just need to reframe keeping it in 1 of these 2 ways. Either: 1) Keep it right outside your house so that you can use it every day. When I had my Morris stashed away it felt a bit like a burden, now I'm using it every day it undeniably sparks joy every single time. 2) Keep it stashed away but try to remind yourself that it's actually an apreciating asset, not coming to any harm doing nothing. Revlieved of the burden, you'll come to love it again soon enough. For me, one of the greatest joys is coming back to a pleasure that you've deserted for a while, be it a favourite bike, recipe, tune, car, whatever!
  7. Yeah totes & cheers m8! I've spoken with a few folks who have had their bikes done there, and they range from testing them and charging £180, to charging them £450 for testing and fitting a catalyser. I gave them a ring a week or so back cos I was interested in a Honda FJS Silverwing- big 600cc fucker. Honda were super helpful and gave me the NOx data which was sadly over the 0.15g/km limit- something like 0.21g/km. I then saw that someone had got their silverwing tested and it passed, so I gave them a ring with a question along the lines of "if i brought my Honda Silverwing to you, would it pass?" To which they replied "couldn't possibly say mate, they usually test okay though". I then said, "cool, in case it doesn't, how much would it be?" to which they said "Look mate, ask the question as many times as you like, but we just can't say ok? There's a couple of things that we might be able to do" with a surprising dose of attitude. The attitude, combined with the closed door will they/won't they charge me whatever the fuck they want puts me off a bit but yeah I've deffo been considering cheaper bikes with the test fee in mind. Weird though innit, that they can pass a bike that the manufacturer reckons wouldn't pass? Further reinforces your "closed door" theory.
  8. Yeah maybe! Is it ULEZ compliant and what engine size is it? EDIT: Actually X reg is presumably not compliant.
  9. Aaahhh I miss Forestburn! Any excuse reminisce about the days ragging the X1/9 up there….
  10. Remember that free Vespa that didn’t look too rusty underneath? oh… I was really hoping not to have to crack out the sparkly stick on this.
  11. Not to piss on your chips but I’m not 100% sure about that- If it’s registered on the 1st August 1983, then according to my understanding of the rules, it won’t be MOT exempt until August 2023, and won’t be tax exempt until 1st January 2024.
  12. Got a link M8? A search doesn’t seem to drag it up
  13. VFR is a great shout! I think I might have played too much GTA Miami Vice as a youth and now a bike has to be white though, or display It's true kids, computer games will ruin your life.
