  1. Buttery biscuit base Corsa MK1, in white, steel wheels, black bumpers, radio only not even a cassette. And the powerhouse 1.7 non turbo diesel. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. I'm near Belfast. Don't know that trader but dear lord that's a cheap Boxster. I'll ask Faker..... Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Vtwins are the best twins. I do love the sound of an angry in line four on full chat, but for 99% of riding a V is just better. I sort of regret moving the storm on when the guzzi arrived but the cash was needed elsewhere. And I still love my Guzzi. Not the best in any measurable way but they have soul Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Kinda what I was thinking - I'm not sure there's £500 worth of extras on the classic version, given how easy it is to get bits..... Mrs wants to do her test in 2021 and has her heart set on a CBR500R to replace her trusty CBR125R so may need to make sure there's garage space for all that......

  5. I'm considering doing something stupid. I always fancied a Royal Enfield Bullet 500, but assumed they would keep making them forever. Not so - new emissions regs in India is killing the 500. And seemingly the 350 bullet is being replaced by something new and retro call the meteor. Export markets from next year will only get the meteor, Himalayan and the interceptor. Bugger. Local Enfield dealer has a standard bullet and a classic 500 in stock and I'm sort of tempted: Half of me wants a standard bullet, half insists the classic with single seat and neater rear guard looks nicer......it
  6. Just read through the last few months worth. Bloody hell. You deserve a medal each lads. Services to shite. I reckon as a daily driver you want something late 90s. I think that's where peak automobile resides. Anything older won't keep up with modern traffic as well, anything newer will have OMG electronic complication. Bodywork will be the only issue but you clearly have the skills to keep rot at bay there. I'd be tempted to get a mid sized cheap estate car for tat hauling duties. Something that just runs and runs.

  7. Very nice have you fitted it yet?? Must add 2.5bhp [emoji12] Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. This arrived last week: Much lighter than the standard one, and feels nicely made. Tidies the rear end up nicely. This had to come out too, with it in it sounded close to standard. It doesn't look like much but makes a big enough difference. It was rivetted in place too - taking a drill to your nice new exhaust is fun......I guess they have to do this to pass type approval? I even made a wee video. I'll do a better one on the bike it it ever stops raining' Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Don't go tin, most of them are a nightmare for condensation. A mate has something like this, assuming it's well tethered it should do ok and won't rub the paint the way a cover will "3.3x4.8m Carport Tent / Portable Garage, PE 260 g/m², dark green - House of Tents" https://www.houseoftents.co.uk/Portable-Garage/7808.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAhZT9BRDmARIsAN2E-J3RD2kOpdAt0O14pbHKK_2BxTix9-4cLvd570lZyIbfRQKWyHNiELYaAs3ZEALw_wcB Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Delkevic are well made but loud without the baffle. No idea on the GR ones but they seem well priced Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Have found Italian motorcycle parts and accessories company who trade loads on eBay, who had a reasonably priced link pipe and silencer for the V85. Order placed, and then I read some shit reviews on uktrustpilot......and on some forums. I looked up their address on street-view and it's just some flats. https://www.omniaracing.net To be fair to them all their eBay ratings seem good so I'll give them a chance. Especially as I've already made the order [emoji1787] Exhaust in question: Cost £180 including postage. That's for a stainless slip on + link pipe. Everything else for the V85 is i

  13. I'd love a proper shit old truck. Bit overkill doing the license just for the craic mind Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Yup, we've had a seat Ibiza estate for six days for that sort of dough in Lanzarote. I think it was autoreisen.com? Managed to avoid driving it down a ski slope and didn't owe any mullah on the way home.... Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I think a Mille would fit the bill. Something light and punchy with an anti social exhaust and no pillion provision whatsoever. This all stemmed from me looking at aftermarket exhausts for the V85tt. When I added up a decat and slip on silencer it was the thick end of £900. Which in my world is almost an entire bike.......
