  3. Journalistic licence

    Chatter
    When does journalistic licence become total b*ll*cks? The reason I ask is that I came across some total nonsense when doing some Googling about for my AT camshaft details thread*. I was actually looking to see if I could find a power/torque curve for the Honda VT750 Shadow as it shares a...

  10. Cornwall Road safety

    Chatter
    Had this e-mailed to me today from the council road safety unit, not sure if they are concerned about what the public think from a biking point of view or whether they have just run out of ideas themselves about what to put on the signs. Both the roads they mention are accident blackspots and...
