  2. Oh dear, what a pillock!

    Manchester United's (whoever they are) Paul Scholes has car stolen. Just goes to further the theory that footballers are not the sharpest knives in the draw. Stiil, he should be able to afford another. Wonder if his insurers have stopped laughing yet? :D 100% free webcam site! | Awesome...
  3. What happens when you lend your bike to your son.......

    ....... And the fuel gauge doesn't work. How much petrol is in it I said. Its done 160 on a tank so About 50 miles left he said. 15 miles later pop pop bang bang. No fuel. I reckon the pillock reset the trip 50 or so miles after filling up. Sent from my iPhone with a smile :)

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Yup my trusty old Transalp still amazes me! last week end I had a couple of days out with the usual gang here, the route went something like this Auxerre - N151 & N 977 - Nevers -N7 - Moulins -N7 & N9 - Gannat - Clermont Ferrand. This route is now mostly either dual carriageway...
  7. Waterproofs and how they build character! New pair wanted.

    I've decided that there are two qualities that one must rely on heavily as a motorcyclist: humour and humility. Especially when dealing with waterproofs. Basically, because it is hard not to look like a total pillock, fighting a losing battle with one's over-trousers, standing in the road...
  8. Toxicification continues

    Guess which idiot didn't put the stand down properly or possibly at all on his RD04 this morning. Guess which pillock then dumped it on it's side against the kerb outside his flat. For some reason I couldn't get an angle on it to pick it up myself and enlisted a nice passer-by to help pick it...
  9. Got the bugger!

    In a 30 zone doing 29 and approaching a 20 zone (school enterance). Merc SLK coming up behind fast squeezes past me without crossing white line, pillock!

  11. Just a quick hello before she finds me on the computer and kills me

    Just a quick hello to the forum. Haven't been here for ages due to rebuilding the house and the missus standing over me with an axe to get the work done. What started off in the summer as a major house redecoration of a 150 year old house has in fact turned out to be a major rebuilding...
  12. erratic speedo

    Hi all, My speedo started to go a bit erratic today. I'm guessing the cable has come loose at one end after a particlularly vigorous de-salting. Can someone confirm for me it goes into the gearbox and if so can you get at it without dismantling the bike. I have nowhere to work on it until after...
  13. What do YOU do . . . ?

    . . . when you park the bike and go for a wander? More specifically, do you dump your lid(s) in the top box, fix them with the under-seat hooks, or lug them around with you? What about other stuff? My rides out have tended to be non-stop, or petrol stop only, until the last couple of years...
