    I am not a huge fan of Gin, mostly drinking it just to keep my wife company and and on warm sunny evenings when it really is just the perfect drink. While you were all having a food fight in Pembroke the other week I got introduced to a new complement to Gin and Tonic - forget Lemon, Lime or...

Viewing stats for the identical adverts each of which was posted within afew minutes of each other...

    Morning All Looking into the possibility of fitting a 650 shock onto a later model 600 ('98 ). Asked the same question in the huge 'transalp modifications' thread on ADVRider, but since the 650 wasn't sold in US there aren't many folk there with experience of the 650. Anyone this side of the...

    Was never a great fan of the Stones, liked them, but never a huge follower. However, this latest single is superb - raw rock played by a bunch of guys that should be collecting their pensions by now. Here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPFGWVKXxm0 Fair do's to the guys for not letting...

    1994 model, 39000km on the clock, it has used 0,7 liter oil on 1000 km No visual leaks (except the carb insulator rubber, see other post, which has stopped leaking) I think this seems like a huge amount. White exhaust this morning which went away after 2-3 minutes. Any ideas???

    Guess most people have heard that she's dead now, probably an overdose. Whats people's views on it? personally i always loved a lot of her early work but gradually she went down hill. Things probably got worse when she met Bobby Brown but they seemed like peas in a pod. I have no time for drug...
