  1. I made a tree at work.

    Chatter
    This is the Traffic Light Tree which used to stand at Heron Quay roundabout. Taken down and stored in some lorry containers until a new site was found. Piled foundations went in in September and before Christmas we lowered the main post onto the holding down bolts. Then these two poor blokes...

  3. Journalistic licence

    Chatter
    When does journalistic licence become total b*ll*cks? The reason I ask is that I came across some total nonsense when doing some Googling about for my AT camshaft details thread*. I was actually looking to see if I could find a power/torque curve for the Honda VT750 Shadow as it shares a...
  4. Rd 03 cdi question

    Africa Twin
    After having to take a walk with my @ rd03 it turns out one of the cdi's is iffy. More specifically the one that signals the pump and tacho. So i purchased a replacement (the argentinian one that's readily available). It now turns out that this one doesn't power the pump either (note the old...

  6. The Hi-Viz discussion

    Chatter
    Found this on Therevounter forum - Transport Research Laboratory: High Conspicuity* Garments for Road Workers, Final Report. I refer the reader to Figure 10 on Page 37. And the powers that be are still trying to force "Highly Conspicuous" Hi-Viz Jackets on users motorcyclists in the totally...
  7. Alarms pitfa

    Chatter
    Week before last the alarm on my mates Falco packed up and locked on couldn't deactivate it so the bike couldn't be run or started. He bought a couple of new batteries and put them in both blippers then it wouldn't allow them to be reprogrammed. He asked me to check to see if he was doing it...

    Photography
    The original site for this content seems to be locked down by higher powers. This site could be blocked or have some of it's content removed soon. While it's up, there is a great Gigapixel shot of London taken (Not entirely legally ;)) from the top of the Shard building. :thumbup: The Shard Of...
  9. Failure to stop and failure to report an accident not an offence?

    Chatter
    I was outside the front of the house a couple of weeks ago marvelling at the moronic driving and near grid-lock caused by the school run. A Thrifty hire van went past and there was a loud bang as the passenger mirror on the Thrifty van hit the rear corner of my neighbour's van. I got the...
  10. On-the-Spot fines for bad driving.........

    Chatter
    About bl**dy time too! Police to get powers to fine drivers on the spot. Only trouble is there are probably not enough Traffic Police to go round. And isn't this what has been asked for since the introduction of speed cameras? And another thing - how are they going to cope with the mountains...
  11. The Welsh are so Tup Sometimes.

    Chatter
    I don't ever have a rant or Powt unless something hurts my bike or on of the girls. But Yesterday the Welsh assembly in Cardiff had a referendum asking for more powers from The Proper Government in London. ( This is my opinion so tuff if any one has the hump) My fellow country men voted with...

    Chatter
    Anyone know out about em? I got a Thompson Sky box as ours has been playing up a bit (Amstrad) and each time i plug it in it just says no signal. I plug my Amstrad back in and works fine. The Thompson powers up fine and i can go into all menus etc but there just appears to be no signal, is...

    The Longest Day (Planning)
    Guys, Following a chat I've given Mark and Barry moderator rights to the Charity Events (and sub forums) section. This will allow them to manage posts and lock and unlock threads. You should have a few new options to play with so I would suggest you have a play with a test thread (or this one)...
  14. Lulu and Nessie have a slight (mis)adventure

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, it had to happen sooner or later :(. Luckily no damage to bike or rider, though :thumbup:. Rode her into work today (for the third time - supposed to be lucky :confused:). Arriving on campus via one of the back entrances, there is a tricky space to negotiate between the entrance barrier...

  16. Bike Lift

    Africa Twin
    Right. It's that time of the year where I've decided that I can't really continue to put off the work that is needed on the old AT so have recently acquired a workshop where I can, err, work, through the vagaries of the winters here. As such, I'm looking for something to lift the bike up so I...
  17. WTF? Internal borders?

    Chatter
    Not the most reliable and impartial source I know, but still: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1165560/Now-need-ID-cards-trip-Isle-Wight.html Has anyone heard about this - is this for real? Isn't 'democracy' grand :rolleyes: Looking on the bright side I suppose at least we'll all be...

  20. Raining in all four compass points

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The Eskimos have 40 words for snow. We Brits have about as many ways of saying rain. Whether the Met Office calls the weather showers, or light drizzle, or issues a severe weather warning, one thing you can be sure of - especially if you plan a trip in June, is that it will rain. We've had...
