  1. MATHS, can somebody please explain?

    Chatter
    OK, I admit it, I'm a numpty at maths, and clearly never paid enough attention in class. My invoices are never paid into the bank in consecutive order, and sometimes they are combined, and then have 20% deducted for income tax. The problem is compounded by not getting timely CIS statements...

    Chatter
    Just read this from the Motorcycle Action Group: I guess if your economy is in a mess, the government will maximise its income! :snorting: I blame Top Gear for increasing the Pass's popularity. :protest:

  5. Dead granny's benefits

    Chatter
    Come on then PDSquire - the XRV liberal wing - justify this behaviour by these poor victims of an uncaring society. These two women kept the dead body of their mother/granny in the house so they could keep her benefit income. I am sure you will be able to convince MPJ and Sean that their...

    Chatter
    What is the English linguistic expression for "It's safe... But hold on, don't fly over it! Scientists drive me crazy, I remember the Jeff Goldblum line "They knew they could, they just never stopped to think whether they should". Don't accuse me of being a luddite, but casting my mind back to...

  8. have to pull out

    The Longest Day
    Ash is Out Hi All, Sadly I’ve got to pull out of TLD 2010. As some of you know I work as an entertainer for the Armed Forces, here in Germany. Just lately they’ve been so busy overseas, they haven’t been around to party like normal. I had to look for a part time job for some extra income...
  9. A new start

    Chatter
    Hi all Recently I have been seriously thinking about purchasing a piece of land with the view to generate the majority of my income from it. It would be my sole interest so would have my full time and energy thrown in to it. With the many different activities that are possible I'm looking for...

    I dunno if anybody's planning on riding through switzerland next summer ? I also dunno if the UK has an agreement with the swiss about speeding fines, but I thought you might like to be warned in advance... the prices are in swiss francs, & you'll note that on the main roads (not autoroutes)...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    I can see from other posts that there are a few AT riders in SEA. We are currently two AT riders in Laos but the other guy lives halftime in Phnom Phen so he may not count. I've had my bike since 2006. Bought it from an expat in Laos. I’d like to advertise Laos as a destination – the more the...

    Chatter
    A story from deepest cornwall Tony the turnip. So, lying here in the larder, in the vegetable 'in-tray' – I have been thinking about life, the universe and everything – and far from being depressed about being worth around two pence, I have just realised what I am really worth!!! This...
  14. Breaking my Dommie?

    Dominator / FMX
    Well after Domie swimming lesson last week I'm now contemplating what to do. I see the opertunity to either spend money on rebuilding the head and barrel or buying an XR600 and break or sell the Dommie minus the engine. I have two sets of body work, the original white(90-91 style) and the black...

    Chatter
    Dear Sir, I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to...

  20. NWS Threads

    Chatter
    I'm conscious there's been a lot of eyebrows raised at the level of moderation over the last few months. I guess sometimes you can't always see why something is moderated so I thought it was worth a post to try to explain. We (the moderators and admins) are forming a policy as we speak on what...
