  1. Good luck, that's one hell of a day trip.
  2. No news is good news????? But the cat is looking at you as if to say ' I told you not to buy a discovery, what do you expect now? 'πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  3. Why the bloody hell did you not give me a shout you idiot πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
  4. ?? What's that then? No I always felt that the front of the bike would slip in the wet. The tyres I have had in the past never made me feel like I had a lot of grip, I always felt as if I was going to come off. I had the bike MOTd in November and had the pilot fitted then. It was pissing down on the back and even with the new tyre I can't explain the confidence it gave me. I have never been a fast rider, never hang off the bike, more Mick Grant styleπŸ˜‚ but as soon as the rear needs replacing then it's a pilot for there too. Well worth the money in my opinion.
  5. Took the Sprint out today. Not ridden it since November. I had forgotten how good it is, comfy, fast and sounds great. The roads were damp, and I have never been confident in the wet but the Michelin road pilots are bloody brilliant. Never felt unstable at all. Got home however and noticed all the crap from the roads on the bike, good hose down and liberal spray with ACF50 before putting it away. Hopefully I'll get to ride it to work next week.
  6. I hope you are having a great time. Your car is safe and has had a couple of runs to keep things free 😁
  7. πŸ€”Tempting, very tempting but it's in that London, a bit far for me to get.
  8. Got some for my son to use on his bike. He bloody loves them, says they are so much better than just gloves, he suffers from cold hands anyway.
  9. For no other reason than when I looked back to check my lights. It may be dirty but it still glows in the sunshine, bloody lovely.
  10. Bloody lovely, proper learner bikes.
  11. It was only a matter of time. They have been slowly culling the stalwarts for younger types πŸ™„ I stopped listening a few years ago now. Edit: Greatest hits radio isn't too bad. Simon mayo has his old radio 2 show on there with his old co hosts. Also a few other peak music (80s) radio 1 DJs.
  12. Just how many days could you commute to work without using the same transport twice πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  13. Yeah I have noticed this too. E5 seems to be going up in price. Is it because more people are using it instead of that ' more environmentally friendly ' E10?
  14. The village next to mine has a blanket 20mph limit. Every approach road entry to it has the signs up. If you dare to do the speed limit you get tailgated and over taken. Sure enough the centre of the village has narrow roads and a tight mini roundabout, but on those roads it's impossible to get any where near 20 but to cover the entire village is just a piss take.
  15. It may just be an anomaly, though I have been using ESSO supreme E5 in it since I got it. So I'll do another check on next fill up.
  16. Hmmm, glorious Guzzi sound or gentle electric hum? Tough choiceπŸ˜‚ Guzzi all the way.
  17. Quick update. The car was given an 'italian tune up' on new years eve to visit my brother about 70 miles from me. It seems to have done it some good, average MPGs are now 44, so up 4mpg. I think the previous owner didn't go far in it, she only did about 1000 miles a year in the 10 years she had it. The car continues to grow on me,just wish I could give it a bloody good clean.
  18. Right, I'm not that good at searching through threads so I may* have missed it, but... Any news on the famous autoshite calendar this year? January is upon us and a suitable replacement must once again hang in pride of place.
  19. Hang on.. you bought this while at a curry restaurant on new years eve????? You sir are the epitome of autoshite 11/10.
  20. Don't you want them for the ZS????πŸ˜‚ Dont worry I'm running fast!!!!
  21. Always had pioneer speakers and radios back in the day, including the obligatory shelf mounted box speakers πŸ˜‚
  22. I don't know. When it stops raining I'll have a look see. I'm guessing project drive cost cutting so they will be the best speakers that were available from the local knock off storeπŸ™„
  23. New resistor arrived yesterday, life is good with a proper fan😁 new rear light seals are due to arrive today so hopefully the boot will be dry from Saturday, not before time. Just the rear drivers side door seal to sort. MPGs are improving, 42 now on the work commute. The car is really growing on me now, it's good to get little niggles sorted. One thing I will do is improve the speakers.put a decent radio in there and on the odd occasion I like to turn up the CD the sound is bloody rubbish, no bass at all. The intermittent wipers will get sorted in the new year. First longish drive tomorrow, going to see my brother who is about 70 miles away, bit of A road and dual carriageway. Let's see how she is at motorway speeds.
