  1. In or out?

    Are you guys voting to leave Europe or stay in? I just realised that if you leave Europe,I will have to start paying 25% import tax and vat on my bike parts if I order them from blighty.:(:(:( What are you going to vote, in or out and do you believe all the bow locks the politicains are talking...
  2. Let's Vote on a Screen Deflector (or not)!

    Right, I think we'd all agree that our beloved Trannie's (mines called Trinny by the way) have the very real potential to give us a right royal headache if the screen set up isn't right. Long and short of it is the last 6-700 miles I rode were ok, but could have been better. Very briefly, I...
  3. Vote Common Sense

  4. XRV Photo competition

  6. Poll: Should we reschedule the 2013 trip

    Austin's Adventures
    I buggered up the polls and there were two threads which I have now merged, so some things may be out of order, but I thought it worth keeping it all in one place. Given the weather conditions in Galloway and the remote prospect of a thaw it may be prudent on safety and enjoyment grounds to...
  7. More stupidity......

    ... this time from the Irish - admittedly in the back end of beyond in County Kerry - Irish Council in Kerry to relax drink-drive limit. And reported on the RTE website - Kerry Council passes drink-drive permit motion. In essence they want the law changed so that the legal alcohol limit for...
  8. Photo competition for 2014 calendar

    Please see below copy of post from Charity board... Whilst many of us have snow covered drives and gardens, it isn't an obvious time to be arranging a photo competition and calendar, but its good to get the ball rolling early in order to gain some decent momentum by the Spring. Having had a...
  9. Stupidity at its worst

    Stupidity at its worst. Our (Overpaid and brainless) politicians here in Sweden have decided that in the name of equality between the sexes, the words he (han) and she (hon) shall be substituded with the neutral word "Hen". I know I'm getting old, and my ideas are not proactive enough but I...
  10. Cheeky, I know, but...please vote for us!

    My colleague and I have been nominated for an Enterprise award for a research project that we did with Leicestershire Constabulary on Mobile Data Technologies. To win we need as many votes as possible, so I'm hoping that some of you nice XRV peeps might be able to support us. I can't promise...

  13. Tory Party Conference

    I listened to the Chancellor yesterday before I went to work and I've listened to some of it again today. Well, all I can say is I'm voting for them again next time after hearing what was said today. The biggest bit of common sense I've heard for a long time: "Getting rid of the Human Rights...
