  1. Good evening. I had a nice little trip out to Screwfix on the bike today. Out by the shortest route, and return by the route that Google maps recommends (it doesn’t think that a road on the shortest route is passable). This view makes me stop and pause for a moment every time I see it.

  2. I've struggled whether or not to make this post as it is my daughter after all but for this I feel she is well and truly deserving of a nomination She found a mouse in her living room last week, it's been found and dealt with now. The issue is that she has rung me up and is now worried that it may of laid eggs and she could have more appearing soon. Laid eggs. A mouse. I swear I didn't drop her on her head that often as a child, honest

  4. Aldi have some digital calipers for £7.99, quite decent they are too. Plus a handy rechargeable led work light for £14.99. Doubles up as a power bank if needed. I've got both already but you can never have too many at that price. I only went in for a new soldering iron.

  9. Good morning. I had a strange conversation with my son last night. It’s his birthday soon and he’s asked me to buy him some noise cancelling earphones as a present, to replace the ones he lost. He’s an expert at losing stuff. It is, I would say, his core skill. On this occasion he claimed it wasn’t his fault. Yea, right! As it happens, they appear to have been stolen while he was trying to talk a girl out of jumping from a bridge. He’d taken them off and dropped them on a bench to talk to her. Another guy managed to grab hold of her and my lad then also grabbed hold of her

  11. Did this to the Bandit twice and got fed up, not to bad to take off and paint but do not want it to get too corroded and snap anything. took it to the local powder coat shop and 4 years later still in good shape. I did put a bit of pip round the centre braces to stop the peppering from grit. Cost £10 bargain.

  12. It was in the Halfords Orpington car park and we were both in uniform. I let fly with quite a mouthful and some passing do-gooder came storming up to me: "I want to speak to the manager about your appalling language!" He said, to which I replied "I'm listeneing"

  13. We all do stupid shit sometimes. After rebuilding a Chavalier engine it would start but only run if I kept the revs up. I puzzled over it all night until I remembered I left a hose off the manifold. I connected it up the next morning and it was fine. I was only 18 or 19 at the time! I've also been known to get on the bike and realise after a few miles that I left my lid in the garage. There are many, many more!

Thats the thing you say its quiet but you're comparing it to when people where posting just to be obnoxious and trying to compete with each other on who can be the biggest twat and 99% of it was inane drivel We always had a slump after Christmas till around March time when people started to get their bikes out and I can see stats from the past years to see that in fact I was only looking at them the other day! usually a week after new year it plummets off the face of the earth! this is not helped by the current ongoing pandemic too I know people who have

  17. Managed with some help to marry up the four pipes with their holes. took the silencers off, it was still difficult, they did not just slot into place but they did with some pressure and effort. have tightened all of the nuts up to a point. I will revisit the rest over the next few days, since up, put the silencer back on, reattach the radiator and the oil cooler thingy. Then oil and then see if the bike works

  21. At school one of the wild girls in 5th form had a boyfriend with a loud shouty custom chopper thing, pulled up one morning to drop her off at school gate making much noise as it made him even more cool, side stand down and drop bike over, right over with both of them on it, silly little side stand straight down drain, ohhhhh everyone laughed

  22. Oh forgot about this one. In Filey. Bit of a motorcycle parking area right on front by where all the ice cream huts etc are. Must of been 50 tourists milling about on the benches. Parks up. Cool as....lol Walks away. The sodding VFR fell over.... I hadn't put the side stand down properly. Absolute deathly silence from the masses. Comedy moment. 2 old boys walk over to me n said heap on floor. And I quote "thas fxxxxx that lad"

  24. In reality there has been no lock down for the last couple of months. Traffic is still busy. Saw 2 pissed up youths staggering around at quarter to 5 this morning on way to work. Either the pub lock ins are starting again or its house party time. (I'm probably jealous more than owt)

  26. Owners used to be divided between those who said it was the best car they'd ever had, or the worst. I got to drive one once, unbelievable. I was just too scared of the complexity to risk buying one though. Back on track....my brother bought a 2.3 Magnum that had been rallied. It went like the proverbial off a shovel. He was always tinkering with it. One night we went out and he reckoned it wasn't pulling quite right so he reset the timing by the roadside. A few miles later we noticed it was running hot and there was something amiss in the engine area. Bear in mind the r

  29. Had a late finish and was greeted with some coated fish accompanied with quinoa that resembled rabbit droppings and tasted like dog doo, was so bad I ate the veg first. As I didn't have to make it I just grimaced and ate it, I have requested that combo never makes a return though, so probably be getting it for breakfast.

  34. I've bookedy theory test for the end of April hoping that they are going ahead by then. I've done 2 professional work exams during this lockdown I don't see why the theory test can go ahead as normal. Hopefully get DAS done soon and have the summer on something bigger than my 125.

  35. Though I’m pleased it’s no longer required, it’s still bloody annoying that the need for delivering NHS scrubs has tapered off. I got a few good rides in during last year delivering stuff to various charities and care homes. Especially the places on the West of the Lake District. Returning home over the passes on nearly empty roads was wonderful.

Cors if you’ve got soft panniers on your bike and have an off (or two) the plastic bag won’t help you.. don’t ask me how I know that one

  40. It does not surprise me having seen the state of driving and riding in French cities. There does seem to be a death wish among riders on major roads especially in heavy traffic with bikes travelling at 2 and 3 times the speed of vehicles around them and weaving from lane to lane with no indication or cutting traffic up.

  44. Woke up this morning to see more flashing lights than at a 90’s rave. There’s not normally a vehicle in sight but two fire engines, four police cars, two ambulances and eventually frogmen are all clogging up the road. There was a Jag upside down in the ditch, the cab underwater and the doors shut so no way of knowing if someone was trapped inside. Fortunately there wasn’t but unfortunately for the four men who towed the thing down the lane and then spent yonks trying to push it in the ditch there is CCTV on those buildings It’s the most entertaining 20 mins CCTV I’ve ever watched, hilar

  45. Just read through it and tbh it's of no concern. WhatsApp already shares information with Facebook, such as your IP address and information about your phone, as well as purchases made via the platform. However this does not apply in Europe and the UK, where different privacy laws exist. Google, Amazon are both way more intrusive than that.

  47. Well another holiday cancelled so decided to spend some of the refund on sorting my garage out, fed up with tools and kit everywhere and not being able to find anything when I want it....The Teng tool chest isn't the cheapest, but as someone who has used teng tools in the past I'm really impressed by the quality and versatility. I went for the seven drawer option, it's made from heavy duty, rust proofed steel, roller castors of which two are braked, ball bearing runners on the drawers with a latch system, each drawer is lined with compressed foam, the cabinet also has a combination lock.
