whipping

  1. Horse whipping.

    Chatter
    I don't get it with all this horse whipping business. If it doesn't hurt the horse then why limit the number of times you can whip it? If it does hurt the horse then why allow it at all? Some on TV this morning saying its the noise or the sight of the whip being swung but if that was the case...
  2. The everyday story of lawyering folk...

    Chatter
    I was chatting to a colleague who said if he is ever against me, he is going to undermine my client by association with the other people I represent. In the last few months I have represented; a transsexual who put his children in cages a male prostitute who I defended by challenging the...
  3. ACF50 Anti-Corrosion treatments

    Tools
    Anti corrosion stuff is something I've never used or come across until now. I'm sprucing up an 1988 RD03 that's been outside my house for over two years, uncovered and generally unloved and ignored. I've had a few jobs to do, one of which meant whipping the shock and swingarm out. I'd always...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    My Maiden Voyage with Empress Belinda!. It was 6am, the sun was already shining bright and vibrant in the sky and the birds chattered excitedly as I looked out the window expectantly. Today I was going on an adventure - a secret mission, known only to a select few. I slipped away...
  5. Dunlop D908RR tyres on an XR650R.

    XR
    Anyone else use them? Ive had them on a few bikes but for some weird reason the rear one i bought the other day is rubbing on the inside of the swinging arm on my XR650R. Not to much but enough to annoy me to the point of getting out the grinder this morning and whipping the edge off it so it...

    Travelling from S.Wales to the lake district on friday on the M6 in the 3rd Lane doing somewhere around 80 mph, I here and feel a bang and lose all power, I managed to get over to the hard shoulder and get off, noticing coolant splilling out , upon further inspection I notice that the chain had...
  8. The Demise of the Transalp!

    Chatter
    Me and the wife stopped in the dealers 30 miles away for a cup of coffee, and I got talking to the owner. They're the same people I bought the Transalp from. So he said to me...."We've got a demo bike going...do you want a try?" Well I'm not one to refuse something for nothing, so instead of...
