  2. 1200GS Screen on 650TA

    Transalp
    On Sunday I was tidying the garage and a screen fell on my head (it had been stored in the roof since I sold my 1200GS). Fortunately it was bubble-wrapped but it got me thinking..........the screen on a 1200GS isn't particularly big but it offers good protection, and now the weather's getting...

  4. New tyres, and cutting out?

    Dominator / FMX
    Had my bike in the shop today, I wanted a few things looked at, and I wanted the wheel bearings replaced so I had the new tyres fitted at the same time (Avon Distanzia). It would seem as though I am going to have to get the starter clutch done some time, but as the kick start works, there is no...
  5. National Motorcycle Week

    Chatter
    is all next week. :wav: Anybody doing anything evangelical to mark the event? At my company, all bikers(that includes anyone on motorised, two-wheel transport) gets a free T-shirt and free breakfasts. There'll also be a bike dealer in the car park giving test rides on scooters and...
  6. Ride alone or in a group?

    Chatter
    I was driving (needed the 4WD and trailer!) back home yesterday and was pondering the merits and also the downside of tiding a bike on your tod. There have been several posts here on using PMR and headsets to chat as you go along or to have an MP3 player on for some moosic. Yet for me, one of...
  7. Iridium visors

    Helmets
    Hi all, Can anyone tell me if my iridium visor is legal ? I have read the past threads on tinted, coloured visors etc and I am still unsure how I stand in the eyes of the law. ( no pun intended ) My visor does not have an "E" stamp on it as mentioned in past threads. Went for a short blast...
  8. to those over thirty remember this life

    Chatter
    Gotta Be Over 30 to Understand the following : Mum used to cut chicken, slice eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't get food poisoning. My Mum used to defrost mince-meat on the kitchen sink AND I used to eat a bite raw sometimes, too...

  10. Opinions of filtering

    Chatter
    Hi, I wonder others opinion on filtering through traffic. My daily journey involves quite a few sets of traffic lights, (mostly right turns) If I find the lights are on red, or more so if I’ve seen them change to red on approaching, so I know I have a few minutes, if conditions and other...
  11. Taking responsibility

    Chatter
    Over and over again we hear of incidents where cars pull out in front of bikes. We know they do it, even though they shouldn't, so why do so many people ride like they are in a perfect world instead of expecting trouble? At the risk of getting flamed (and this isn't aimed at anyone in...
  12. Battle of Chelsea Bridge...

    Chatter
    Hello As some of you know the London contingent meet here and have done since Feb. Those of you who know the area would have seen the new flats and heard that (yet again... its a regular thing) local residents were trying to get the meet shut down. Local MP involved - biker Hooligans - stunts...
  13. Crashed your bike?

    Chatter
    I was just wondering how many of us have failed to keep it all sunny side up and lobbed the bike down the road, or into the number 13 bus, or that magnetic ditch on the Cat & Fiddle pass. I know the stats say that bikers can't ride for more than five minutes without there being a call to 999...
  14. Men are from Mars and women are from Venus

    Chatter
    I just told the wife that my new exhaust had arrived, and it only cost £200ish pounds. But it will make me a safer rider because people will hear me on it. There, justification. I offered her anythign she wanted up to the Value of £500 ... she declined. New kitchen planned for September
