  1. I finally assembled the workbench I received from Secret Santa. Good instructions and so a piece of piss to build up. Feels sturdy and then I see its rated to hold 150kgs. Now I need to find something to stick in/on it. Thank you SS.
  2. Just seen this on a news article about an offensive plate that's going to be withdrawn from its owner. An Australian lawyer has LGOPNR on his Lamborghini and someone has complained to the issuing authority that it spells "LeG OPeNeR. Really?
  3. I keep getting an ad up about how to sue Mercedes for mis selling their diesel cars based on their emission figures. I would like to know how many buyers made emissions their top reason for buying a Mercedes over another make of car, and did not make their choice based on the cars image, colour, interior, in-car entertainment etc. I bet the number isn't high. I have never chosen a car or motorbike based on emissions, or even fuel economy come to think of it.
  4. Not now. Pre retirement I was commuting 20,000 miles a year on the bike, so kept a note of fuel consumption to check all was well. I rarely used my own car (Saab 9-5 tuned to around 300bhp and 22 mpg because driven to use all 300 horses). In Spain now where I have bought a Fiat Doblo as it suits my needs. It's a 1.3 diesel but dont think it's very economical. Maybe 40 mpg? My Triumph Street Triple and Royal Enfield Himalayan are miles apart in fill ups, but then the Triumph is thrashed on the roads, and the Enfield potters around on unpaved roads. Fuel here is cheap still, abou
  5. Recently saw a photo on another site of a Porsche with the plate Y1 PET. I remember someone commenting that the driver couldn't park between the lines properly. Obviously someone that has never had a two door car with long doors. Only way to park it in a bay without the door being banged into the one next to it, so top Mark's to him or her. Shame the passenger door will probably get battered....
  6. Neither my RS250 or Mito did it to the same extent, just a slight haze but no significant smoke. Must be something to do with modern£25 a litre two stroke oils
  7. I had a Dyson 400cc that now looks kind of ungainly. That had alloy wheels on it and Allspeed expansion chambers from Dyson. The body kit I remember was very heavy as it was made from thick fibreglass, none of you lightweight injection moulded plastics back then. Nothing better that holding it wide open at 2500 rpm in top for a mile or so, then dropping down three gears for a really unholy smoke screen. Two stroke oil back then isn't like it is now either.
  8. My parents house had the disused railway between Braintree and Dunmow behind it, which we used quite a lot. There or the Sand pits, depending where we kept the bikes we owned as a group of friends. Now the Flitch Way walk, where motorbikes are banned.
  9. Just love the Honda 90, great memories of thrashing them around fields for hours on end. And despite the 100's and 100's of scooters and small bikes I see here every month, I can't recall seeing a Honda 50/70/90 at all.
  10. The whole of the Civil Service is fucked. HMC&E rebranded as HMRC, SOCA created to be Britains answer to the FBI. Then rebranded as NCA. Same staff, same work. HMRC's border staff (those you see (or used to see!) at ports and airports) removed from HMRC and integrated into UK Border Force (I think) then moved again into some other rebrand of "Border Something or Other". No one has ever said why rebrands were needed, nor stated the cost of all of these changes, and things such as new logo'd uniforms, stationary, marked vehicles, payroll etc must run into millions and millions. Whi
  11. It's odd, but since I fitted mine, I haven't recorded any fuckwittery at all. Not a single thing. Beforehand, fuckwittery seen on every drive.
  12. Got the Street Triple ITV'd (Spanish MOT) this evening. Luckily one of the centres is just 10.minutes away. All they do is MOTs. Take you current ITV and Spanish "log book" to the office, pay your €23 fee, and wait your turn. I was the only one there, so i was waved straight on for the bike to be tested. 5 minutes later I had a new ITV, valid for two years. Bit odd not chatting to the tester like I had done for years in the UK. I missed that.
  13. I cannot clear it from my phone. I eventually got access to my laptop (running Windows 10) and printed what I needed from there. I cleared the pdf from my list of printers. Still cant understand how it got on to my list of printers on my phone, which it still is there, and my actual printer which was working perfectly on Sunday, is "greyed" out so I cannot change default to my actual printer. Fucking pointless waste of time and effort really!!!
  14. Spent two hours now trying to print some screen shots needed for tomorrow. Everytime I press "print" the dialogue states I have to save to pdf, which then puts me in a loop. All the solutions I can find on internet show fixes from laptops, and I dont have mine here. Don't even know why my printer (Brother B210 laser) started to do this! Looks like I've got to go to the local computer shop and pay a few Euros for three bits of paper....
  15. I'll never forget one of those BMW's pulling up at the pump next to me in the petrol station on the Highway, not far short of Tower Bridge in London. It was January and bloody cold. As the scooter stopped, a foot clad in a stiletto shoe came out of the apron. A rather striking woman then proceeded to fill it up. I couldnt think of anything to say to her except "its cold". Incidentally, TTT in Sudbury, Suffolk have (or until very recently, had) a very similar looking Benelli scooter in stock, although I forget the price. First (and last) one I have ever seen.
