  1. Who's liable for my tools destroyed in fire at workplace ?

    Chatter
    I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight. I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...
  2. New MOT rules exhaust noise???

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm hopeful to get the old Dominator back on the road this month, however a friend advised there are new MOT rules regarding the exhuast noise. His CBR300 recently failed a test with a modified exhaust. Now my Dominator has a single exhaust and its loud, not as loud as some bikes but I'm...

    Travel
    I have just got back from a trip to Spain and while on the way back home, I was gobsmacked when my CAXTON card was refused on 3 occasions. I put it down to a faulty card, as I "knew" there was over €250 credit still on the card. On getting back, I checked my account to find two debited sums...

  15. How big a van do I need

    XR
    I may need to move my XR400 and as I don't have a van (nor a car for that matter) I was looking to hire one. Question is what size of van do I need. I know it will fit in a transit but what about something smaller? Will it fit in one of these car sized vans but with the higher back. No mirrors...

  18. Whealie really is a super hero.......

    Africa Twin
    It was bound to happen. You just can’t commute 50 miles a day through stationary London traffic on a ¼ tonne motorcycle and expect everybody to respect the difficulties of piloting solo. When my bike got shunted from behind by an abusive and aggressive mini cab driver in three lanes of solid...
