  2. I like making things, I get bored after 1 day of inactivity, I never stopped over Xmas, although some may have thought I just stayed up late drinking and being mischievous that's not correct. I had to heat the legs I made on the radiator as spraying them in the garage at-2 would have been interesting.

  4. Before my youngest was born it was great in my house for chocolates. I was the only one who liked dark or mint chocolate, or ginger biscuits. So guess what I always used to buy? When my youngest got to age 4 or so I soon found out she likes all the same stuff as Dad

  5. Saw some sort of Police chase/stop on the way to work tonight! Lots of BMW's marked and unmarked, blue lights on, came past me on the M6, really fast! Then they all seemed to congregate up on the island at J10. Them blue lights are bright! could still see the afterburn when I got to work

  6. I can't see the point of any of it, its just an expensive gadget that I can live without. Spend a ton of money so you can switch a light on while you are out, no thanks, rather spend that on one of the bikes.

  7. Down here it's been damp all day and relatively warm - 9 C. I've been stuck in front of my laptop all day doing this remote training course. Have to say so far it's been better than I expected.

  8. Bob may remember these. Didn't some MZ's or CZ's have an fibre optic from the indicator? Maybe just the eastern European cars? I miss the self cancelling winkie's on my XJ's. A good habit is to double check like the over the shoulder life savers we oldies still do. Old BM's (R80 etc) used to make that swark with the indicators on. May be it will be maditory to have an indicator bleeper for these new silent electric bikes? Car drivers need an audible warning too, maybe played over there radio's? Oh and a "get off your B*******y phone message too.

  10. there are companies that can extract data from a hard disk. perhaps might be worthwhile investigating that. just because a disk drive has stopped working doesn't t mean that the data thereon is not still intact.

  13. As the start of the 2021 WorldSSP300 season gets closer, Ana Carrasco (Kawasaki Provec WorldSSP300) continues her recovery from a crash at Estoril as the Spanish rider underwent surgery to remove the fixings and support bars that were used to help aid Carrasco’s recovery. The 2018 World Champion had been testing at Estoril in September as she looked to mount a title challenge in 2020. The surgery has been described as “several months earlier than planned” which is a result of the progress of Carrasco’s recovery since the accident which happened in September 2020. The surgery went well accord

  14. I've never understood the point of those tiny plates. You are just inviting yourself to get pulled by Police. And if I was a copper, upon seeing that I'd be double checking everything else while I was there too

And if you need cheering up on a weekly basis there's always Robert and Toyah's Sunday Lunch . Last week's offering had a couple of outstanding features . https://youtu.be/JdvGo7DsFbQ

  20. It’s certainly worth a look, I like it. The Versys is currently about £700 more but I reckon the extra bhp would make it worth it. It’s also lighter than the Himalayan with better ground clearance. I’d want to know about the mentioned vibrations though because that’s wearing if you’re riding a long distance, the Himalayan is anything but wearing it’s the opposite, very relaxing. A factor against for me would be its durability which on the Himalayan is just outstanding (you can’t underestimate the convenience of being able to bend bits back) but it still wouldn’t put me off if it rode well.

  21. You’ll be dandy, fortunately the days of jumbo sized tubes are behind us.. behind us... I crack me up On the up your bum stuff I’d suggest you get some super soft flushable wipes (kandoo used to be the brand of choice), some for home and take a few with you. ‘The Great’ on channel 4 shows some promise for a laugh or two. One and a half stone ay, well that sounds like new bike gear territory to me!

  24. I used to be the one on the lesson that did this alot, so much that I thought my name might actually be indicator as it came over the earpiece so much The byproduct of that is I don't think I have done it since passing, I still hear his voice every time I complete a manoeuvre.

  36. Ever since all this began I've been playing scrabble. On my own, no one else in the family will play against me because I'm a little competitive. Dead easy. Have to clear all the letters and its against the clock. Its kept me amused.

  40. I have all the ‘listening’ functions on my phone off usually. Recently I have had Siri on on my phone but may turn off again. It all feels like 1984 to me only it’s not the state but private enterprise listening in to our every move and everyone is paying for the privilege.

  42. With you there. I've got an R1 which I ride to work on sunny days and the silverwing scooter for wet weather. My commute is mostly open road with a bit of town traffic either end but when filtering through this id much rather be on the scooter, twist and go is so easy, no fear of stalling or anything. The R1 clutch is fairly light but still gets to my wrist after a while. The SW is quite a large bike and I were commuting in a city I'd go something smaller maybe a 400cc Burgervan to help when filtering but with enough zip to keep up with traffic. Don't know how these bikes f

  43. I couldn't actually figure out if you were for or against . Might be an autocorrect glitch . Anyway you are obviously in favour . High mileage is not an issue on a CG because there are as many moving parts as half a Harley so that's about seven .

  44. My house is completely dumb, much like me. Nothing connected to anything, no apps controlling anything and no TV either. Somehow we manage to struggle on with light switches and such. A real hardship so it is.

  45. Also Gareth, bide your time. My experience is that if you rush about looking for something then you usually over pay or end up with a complete dog. Waiting a bit with something in mind often turns up a gem at a steal.
