    Following on from this thread, that started out as a question about plasma TVs and ended up on questioning 3D TV, it got me wondering about "the latest stuff". Now I must be a Luddute as I do not have any of the following - 1) Flat screen TV - still got an old CRT telly and it works just fine...

    Aimed mainly at the Brits, but 'mercans could do with sorting their act out on this one too There are medical advances all the time and whole blood is being used less than it used to be and perhaps one day there will be a safe substitute, but, for the time being at least this is not the case...

    He had a Garmin Quest and was perfectly happy with it. It broke. So, what next? Bike-proof (ie waterproof) with ram mount compatible parts available. Bluetooth, 3D, and all that nonsense is irrelevant. Simply and good, easy to see Sat Nav that is ideally also hand portable. And Garmin as...

    We are rennovating. I am in charge of the bathroom. Apparently, if I have a hand in designing it, I might use it more often. With a username like mine.... I don't think so. Anyhoo, comments on my tastes aside, I want pointers as to where I cvan find a decent selection of tiles in the UK. I...

    A trivial question for you: Is there any particular reason why I should continue wrestling, levering, spraying, heating, cursing and losing my temper with this bloody rubber fuel pump mount thingy, trying to get in onto the replacement Facet fuel pump I've decided to fit (after it has sat there...

    Gents Finally returned to the TA fold after an enforced absence of nearly a year. This time, I am bestride an 08 700 TA, replacing the aged 600 I had last time. Between jolly jaunts offshore, I have managed to ride it a few times and for what it’s worth herewith my opinion so far… Engine...

    selling my Varadero on ebay. Whether this is the right forum to post in I am unsure, but I am sure it will be moved if it is not. I am not advertising my bike here I am just trying to get some feedback on how to list it on ebay. I need to sell the Vara to buy the wife a car as she is going...

    Drizzle rain drizzle wind shower rain today :mad: The stuff was just sticking to my visor and blurring up, I am sure my visor used to 'bead' the water years ago - but maybe that is just nonsense. Does anyone use 'cleaning products' or have any tips to keep your visor as clear as possible in...

    As those of you who were at Jelly's will know I had some electrical problems with my bike over the weekend. I hate electricity, if you have a fuel/oil/coolant leak you can see it, if something is broken you can see, it but electricity moves around your bike under the cover of a multi-coloured...

    An end to another era. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/skynews/20080927/twl-screen-legend-paul-newman-dies-3fd0ae9.html I like my films. Have a collection of mainly 60s to 80s. Newman was a top actor with many excellent films to his name. At least we can (hopefully) expect a season of his best...

    As I’ve mentioned before, I just bought an Alp 650 but has not ridden it yet. I previously posted the question of pushing up the power. I have since spoken to a number of people and got all sorts of advice. The trick is to make sense of everything. Who knows what he is talking about and who’s...

    It was a good morning at the BMW day at the Ace Cafe. The other XRVers had headed off to Rykas and Heather and I were getting ready to leave, when along come 2 blokes in fancy leathers. Cor I've never seen a girl ride such a big bike before. What do you mean says I, it's only a bike and it's...
