    Used to make a living fixing cars, now fix trains, I like bikes and am a closet Bus/Coach nut.

  1. Was just about to post this with a similar (though not as great) comment.... Not far from me either, though the wife would divorce me. Actually......... ?
  2. Sexy Safrane One for the lickers? I'm in love.
  3. Just missed the boat on that. Late, facelift Omega would be my punt too.
  4. I've not seen one like it, though it doesn't mean a lot. I just really like the look of the thing. Being honest, there isn't a lot I don't like. Not ready for a HD yet though......
  5. Just wished I'd bought something pre-lock down. Just a ridiculously clean 765RS, that is in danger of wearing its chain out standing still with me cleaning it again....
  6. I know.... Hardly in the spirit of Autoshite due to exactly that. I just miss bikes and nothing to do on mine ?
  7. A bit salty for me, not much of a BMW bike fan, but something about it I really like. Lovely project fodder.
  8. Christ, staying at home with not a lot to do (even obeying the 1 hour max walking exercise) makes me do some strange things... Posting on here for one, instead of the usual shiteperving. Cleared out the garage yesterday, will make my fortune in a clear out sale of crap when we are safe. Replaced 6 litres of transmission fluid in the Ovlov, not a bad job.... No pics as needed to get it done before it rained. Be safe out there children.
  9. I'd give my left leg to get this one back. First foray into ebay, 'twas an oldun then in 2007. Sold it to replace it with a 525tds. Used to do some foolish things and remember once fishtailing it (no skillz involved) with a mate in the back seat and him bouncing off both door cards.... No girlie traction control then.
  10. Have a long overdue donation. Actually, have another as this made me chuckle on the train home after a glorious night shift. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  11. Feeling very inadequate with a horrible red S60 185 d5. That S90 is stunning, nice buy. Ubersafetywaft with added Blackberry lovelyness.
  12. Me too. Too trendy for a giffer like me though. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  13. Those stripes....... [emoji2957] Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  14. Very nice for £550. I have the 185, so far no OMGDPF after 10k. Would have shared, but I paid an un-Autoshite price for mine and am sure I'd have someone chase me with a pitchfork..... Maybe. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  15. From my background, rail... Interlocks are series of switches/relays/contactors to close safety circuits that then allow something else to operate. I.e. if the train door interlocks don't close, the train won't allow tractive effort (powered movement). Back on Nationals, the noise of the things used to scare the Christ out of me as a child.. became a morbid curiosity and then a fascination. Did I confess I'm a sad bugger yet?
