    For Sale / Wanted
    Afternoon all, just wondered if anyone fancied clearing their Bongo before the Autumn/Winter sets in, watching the usual sites and FB pages (not to mention Evilbay) 3-3.5k is a reasonable chunk. Needs an aft roof and if converted then a rear not side conversion. Anyone? TIA
  2. Used bike sites

    Africa Twin

  3. My new project?

    I was thinking about what I want to do next after my Dommie project is done. I was having a beer and watching the first episode of the new series of the walking dead and noticed that the feller with the crossbow has got himself a new bike. A few minutes on the interweb revealed this. Rolling...

  6. In the UK, it's that time of year again!!

    Well, here we are, almost at the end of another year, and almost at the start of another instalment of "I'm a Celebrity, Get me out of here" This year, the motorcycling community has been considered, and an old ego has been resurrected for some fairing bashing hopefully? Carl Fogarty |...

    Yesterday Mrs wizard and myself bought a load of ceramic tiles from Wicks (the diy place) and paid with the debit card. Last night when I was surfing ebay all the items that popped up that ebay think I might be interested in were either tile adhesive or tile grout. (Its usually Land Rover stuff...
  11. Living Dolls

    On Monday 6th January, Channel 4 aired one of the weirdest programmes I've ever seen. It was a hot topic at work for quite a few days, and I just wondered if any of you normal XRV folk had seen it, and what you thought? It's still on 4OD for those of you that have eaten and fully digested your...

  17. Bye, bye to MotoGP - unless to want to pay

    Looks like the only way to watch MotoGP from next year will be to pay for it - BT Sport confirmed for MotoGP deal and MotoGP: BT Sport secures TV rights from 2014 in five-year deal. So, I suppose I'll have to go out and ride my own bike now rather than watching the racing. Ho hum. 100%...
  18. Licence to Kill - BBC3

    Did anyone else see the programmed "Licence to Kill" on BBC3 the other night? If not it is well worth watching. The programme is presented by Sophie Morgan, who was paralysed herself after a road accident. The only problem I have with the programme is the footballer's "momentary" lack of...

Anybody who's true Cornish knows that...
