  1. All, Following an idea suggested to me a few days ago, I've reach an agreement with our beloved near God @Stu to make available to all members a TMBF sticker. The image is the same as you see at the top of the forum. Size will be 20cm X 6.4cm waterproof white vinyl with glossy finish. According to the suppliers the glue is "super permanent" whatever that means. Price and payment methods are to be confirmed but it should be around the £3.50 mark not considering payment charges, (minimum, I'm sure Stu won't mind of you pay more for it ). Regarding pa

  3. Nearly there: Ran out of shiplap thanks to wife changing her mind about the corner junctions. I had a little try at torching the roof felt - it's a total piece of piss! I can't believe people charge to do it! Wife just went and had a look at how I'm getting along and said "I think this would be good as a summer house".

  4. A bloke in one of those things waved at me once while waiting at a junction . Feeling rather superior as I sat astride my GSXR 1100 I surprised myself by impulsively making a well known gesture that implied that the gentleman had a liking for self pleasure . That would have been the end of it but shortly afterwards I realized that the f**ker had done a U turn and given chase ! Not really knowing what on earth to do I ended the situation by gassing my bike up to a ton plus and leaving mr angry far behind . I think I might have touched a raw nerve there .

  15. I've been dragged out to shopping center to pick up new glasses for wife, we are now in next, I've been had. Got to point out the 3 women leaving as we went in were using wrong exit and that people are thick, as a man walked past us going the wrong way. I've been told to stop speaking

  17. I rode it! Had to go to Ipswich for a second jab of vaccine or placebo - don't know what. Zoomed down the A12 to get there as the staff were waiting in for me, but had a good ride back on the twisty roads via Framlingham. The roads were in great condition - all the crud of winter's gone - so a cracking ride. Loads of bikes out.

  18. Well it's only taken me 6 month to pick a non Chinese phone , in reality it's just the Sony that I looked at when it came out, I refused to pay over 800 quid or 50 for a contract. The ee shop still wanted silly money for it on contract, but the new model is out soon so online it's dropped massively, 5g so I should grow another arm and I expect gchq to be monitoring my every move whilst I kill all the local wildlife.

  25. Hello and welcome . The first thing that comes to my mind is why was it taken apart in the first place ? There's usually a very good and very expensive reason why a bike ends up in pieces . Can you post a load of pictures and try to find out from your dad in his words what's wrong with it ? Then we might be in a better position to advise what path to take .

Oh well...my 46 year old self can be annoyed at the muppet 20 something Liam!!! You live and learn!

  29. Yesterday so cheating a bit.... The head coach at the cycling club my kids go to asked me a few months ago about selling some old motorbike gear he had for when his daughter was younger. I said stick it on Facebook, it'll go super quick. Fast forward to a few weeks back and he tells me one of his old leather jackets had gone really quick but no one was interested in the kids gear. Then he says he'll just give it to me as he wants it gone. Says if I don't want it just toss it. I assume as this point as it's had zero interest it'll be crap. Heck, I put my youn

  30. A little bit of positive news. Germany is getting on the ball as far as vaccination numbers go and they have recently passed a law that excludes anyone who is fully vaccinated and/or recovered from Covid from the lockdown measures. This can only improve as we head into summer and I think its only a matter of time until Germany is taken off the quarantine list. plenty of time for this to pan out. we're due to cross in 17 weeks. (119 days) Be patient. The Schloss awaits.

  34. Rode from Yorkshire to West Scotland yesterday. Great ride. But loads of camera detecting vans out and about … be very careful of the 30mph section on the A66 if you go that way. Normally roadwork restrictions on dual carriageway are 50 mph. Not the A66. There is a long section restricted arbitrarily to 30mph. And a policeman with hand held gun was checking. Fortunately I was doing 30 because I went through with the car a couple of weeks ago and knew the situation.

  39. horrible whining noise at around 60 mph once 70 and over it goes away. the dash hard to keep clean and very untidy. seat is like a plank add any more padding it will raise the height. cant lower it due to sump being low to start with. always felt top heavy and want to fall over if you lean over while maneuvering while riding. just didn't like the bike full stop. I only bought to do a tour of Scotland then sell it on. in my opinion the 700 is a much better bike for me anyway.
