    Chatter
    Lane 2 of 3 (or lane 2 of 2 for that matter) is only to be used when you are in the act of overtaking a slower vehicle or immediately prior to leaving the carriageway to the right. Why, then, on motorways and dual carriageways up and down the land do so few people use lane 1? Bikers do it...

    Africa Twin
    I just collected my Produro from CJ Ironcraft where it has just been welded up. It had developed a small crack just infront of the can section. The chap has done a cracking job for £20, ended up running a weld right the way round to "make it look right" He is worth remembering, doesn't want...
