    Ride Reports and Pictures
    On our recent trip to France/Italy we were passing close to Caraglio the home of Boano and so we decided that it would be great to pay them a visit. We were made to feel most welcome and given a tour of the shop, you've probably seen this @ before but it's always worth another look... Then...

  5. Lulu learns some lessons

    Chatter
    For example: 1. If you are a Learner numpty member, probably best not to ride your bike when you're in a hurry 2. Less haste means more speed. 3. Don't hesitate to ask for help when you need it. 4. Logical thinking is better at solving problems than brute force. 5. And above all, don't - and I...
  6. Xenon on RD07!

    Africa Twin
    Have anybody installed Xenon bulbs on Africa? I DID! :) A couple days ago I bought a pair of some Chinese made H4 bi-xenons. The sticker on the box says that it is 6000K, so it gives very bright white light. The transformation by electronic means was pretty easy. The biggest problem was where...

  8. You rang Mr Bodie?

    Chatter
    I dunno, repeats can be confusing. One minute I'm watching Hudson be all subservient and christian like in Upstairs Downstairs, then the adverts come on so I flick channels and there he is telling Bodie and Doyle to kick someone's teeth in. It's all bit too much on my day off innit!

    Chatter
    A Bloody seagull keeps wandering into our kitchen through the open patio doors and eats our dogs food. You can tell when the little bugger is doing it as all you can hear upstairs is "ting ting ting" as its beak hits the bottom of the metal dog bowl, this normally sends our 11 year old Boxer dog...

    Chatter
    Just a quick hello to the forum. Haven't been here for ages due to rebuilding the house and the missus standing over me with an axe to get the work done. What started off in the summer as a major house redecoration of a 150 year old house has in fact turned out to be a major rebuilding...

    Not on my @ but my doorbell. I wired in a second doorbell upstairs in my office and the downstairs one now fries the batteries. Almost as soon as I put them in, one starts leaking acid all over the wall and floor. Why? What have I done?

    Chatter
    Had a small accident this morning...not involving the bike though! Was running late, and when I got down to the bike I realised I'd forgotten my gloves so I legged it back upstairs. I always leave the flat with my helmet on so it's one less thing for me to carry/forget as I'm not much of a...

    Cooking a dahl, just chopped ginger, garlic and chilli then sliced a lemon, de-seeded it and scooped it up to pop in the pot. Came upstairs to the computer and rubbed my left eye. If you see a man winking at you for the next couple of hours it will be me.
