    Hey guys Had my xr a while now, and previously had a bit of a mare with its well documented issues. Upon rejetting based on no snorkel and a uni filter, and some help from a member on here, I fitted 178/68. It still leaked when on its side, and still a sod to start etc. Reading that this...

  9. Should BMW be worried?

    Found this elsewhere. Seems that Yamaha have come up with an off-road scooter in response to calls from scooter riders after the floods in Thailand. So, do you reckon BMW should be worried? :D 100% free webcam site! | Awesome chicks and it is absolutely free! | Watch free live sex cam -...
