  3. I have a problem with wind

    Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie lives on the street so it hides under an Oxford Stormex cover when not in use. At least three times in the last month the wind has got it and knocked the bike over. We live on a slight hill so the bike is always parked with the side stand side down hill but because it's quite a tall...

    Africa Twin
    Evening all. I've got the spare parts needed to rebuild a siezed (again) front caliper and replace the front hoses with HEL this weekend. I paid a local bike mechanic to rebuild them last year, is this something I'm likely to have to do annually or have I just been unlucky this time around? The...

    Chatter
    Just wondering if anyone who lives in the Stratford upon Avon area is attending the Birmingham NEC on the 22/11/14. I've bought a set of wheels off eBay and was wondering if anyone would be good enough to pick up my wheels and meet me at the show for an exchange? A big ask but it would be much...

  8. Witomoto

    Chatter
    Just heard from Peter at Witomoto. He is thinking about shutting shop as orders are few and far between. It would be a shame to lose his expertise and enthusiasm, not to mention the top quality of materials and workmanship. Things are tough all round, but that bit worse in Poland. So if you...

    Mechanical Advice
    It's a beautiful day out there, so prior to Sunday lunch I thought I'd wheel Bev out into the sunshine and clean her wheels. This was all going swimmingly until I read the instructions on the bottle..."WARNING - do not use in bright sunlight" Oooops. And I'm kind of wondering why this is. I...

    Chatter
    How many more muppets on Facebook are going to state that anyone who wasn’t born, or was kid at the time of Thatcher, doesn’t, or shouldn’t have an opinion on her? Did her legacy simply stop the moment she ceased to be PM? I think not… I’ll be forever grateful to Churchill and the men and...

    Chatter
    I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in our lives. Some doctor on tv this morning said the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started. So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and...
