  1. Vara brake pads

    I ordered 2 sets of front pads and 1 set of rear pads, as you do, from Wemoto for my Vara 1000. When they arrived all 3 sets had the same part number. On ringing Wemoto, I was informed that front and rear pads for the Vara are identical. Is this right? :withstupid:

  7. M&P

    I would have put this post in the DEALERS forum but it's not really a recommendation. Jenna put in an order from M&P as our usual trade suppliers are not really motorcycle based. It went in on the 24th for Tyre, innertube and brake pads and was told that it would be a couple of days. A few days...

    My Helmet was absolutely soaked after a wet ride to work this morning, so for the first time since I bought it I took the Whisper Kit off to help dry it. I couldn't be arsed to put it back on when I left and bloody hell was it noisy without it, and drafty. I persisted on the motorway for about...
  10. The bells, the bells, oh those bells!

    There I was, happy as can be, in Brussells last weekend for the Jazz Festival. By chance I parked the old AT in a street near the Big Square or Grande Place or Centraal Markt. A terrific Galician band appeared playing fabulous music. I was loving it until - those Christian pests started...

    Jack Lilley did up a new Scrambler to look like the one they used in the Great Escape. I want one now. Ride around in chino's, a blue sweatshirt and carry a baseball glove. Oh, and go around jumping fences (I'll pass on stringing up wire across roads to knock germans off their bikes)

Toolstation have it but it's on...
