  3. All round observation - using blind spot mirrors

    Riding
    I've been using blind spot mirrors for almost a year now, after seeing them on one of my IAM observer's bikes. I didn't ask him about how he used them, whether they were useful or actually helped. They take a little while to set up, but once they're done I find they really do help in...

  7. The Honeymoon

    Jokes
    A guy out on the golf course gets hit in the crotch. Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground. As soon as he could manage, he took himself to the doctor. He said "How bad is it doc?...I'm going on my honeymoon next week. The doctor told him, "I'll have to put your willie in a splint to let...

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi guys, my '95 model has decided to blow a hole in the LHS exhaust and, although my temp repair is holding for now, I feel a stainless system is called for. :cry: So which ones best? I like the look of the supermaxx one of you has fitted (sorry I can't remember your name :oops: ) then again...
  9. Getting old

    Jokes
    A bit long winded, but very good According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids in the 60's, 70's and early 80's probably shouldn't have survived, because our baby cots were covered with brightly coloured lead-based paint which was promptly chewed and...

    Great Roads/Routes
    Spent the weekend camping in Betws-y-coed with a few of mates. Did lots of riding around the area but found 1 particular route of interest.
