  1. Insurance
    Can anybody put me on to a motorcycle insurance company that covers for 180 days continuous cover to ride in Europe? I know Ebike do 365 days but there the dearest quote for my bike. Thanks. :thumb: :thumbup: :thumb: :thumbup: :thumb: :thumbup:

    Just noticed that if you go via to the Carole Nash website for a motorbike insurance quote and subsequently take out the policy, you qualify for £30 cashback. New customers only.

    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...

    Well that is my reading of the response from the government to the petition on funding the mountain rescue services. Just got this through, which, roughly translated out of government speak, is sod off and stop whingeing. We still think what you do is great.

    Just read something on the TRF forum about E-Bike insurance having an exclusion for Green laning. Anyone insured with them that goes offroad..? Thought you were covered..? Is green laning offroad or onroad as lanes are legal public highways..? Would be interested to hear your thoughts.
