  1. They are quite responsive. One thought for you do some costings, it does depend on your budget. For me whatever is recommended I would price up I would consider Packtalk Duo system Bold or Slim as well if in budget. The Music and talk function of it is a BIG plus. I ride with friends without and they routinely go quite as they are enjoying ride with music. Not a problem but always leaves decision chat or music. Edit to add its like mobile phones you do get what you pay for, however do you really need ALL the whistles and bells that's the hard cost implication. Last y
  2. Much depends on which unit he has as to what you should buy, if you have picture of his "Freecom" the "motorbike experts" on here might be able to identify. People on here will rave about Senna or Cardo units, they are the best known brands and generally good units. I Have a Cardo Packtalk and a £20 E-bay special (it was cheaper than a new mount set for my Cardo for my short commute to work and I would not cry if it gets bust or stolen) that's probably why @Stu included me. I have used Lidl's best intercom: That actually was not bad, the worst thing was it was a wired connection
  3. Oh no if what they are saying is true there can only be the one Ghost rider...
  4. Another idea no one has touched on is heated soles... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1311&_nkw=heated+insoles&_sacat=0 I tried a pair with remote battery and found that the ones I bought I could feel the wire connection within by boot after a whilst... Keeps the toes warm though...
  5. Now this is not going to go down well with everybody, electric body warmer... £18.50 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electric-Vest-Heated-Jacket-USB-Thermal-Heated-Pad-Winter-Body-Warmer-Overcoat/353188019879?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=622389032158&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 I have to say for the price I cannot argue, I already had a battery pack to run it from... Had it on the other week and it was not cold enough to use it, out today for a couple of hours and it kept my body warm. on low. The heat seemed to radiate to my shoulders, which was a pleasant surprise, on a
  6. If you like that idea try formula E it’s more like dodgers from what I can workout. Then I have spent a couple enjoyable mornings watching and playing at scalextric cars... actually more fun than you would think...
  7. 35t a day is child’s play there are smaller ships that can burn more.. https://www.bourbonoffshore.com/sites/default/files/documents-associes/pdf/ahts-bourbon-orca.pdf 50mt a day and non of this heavy oil stuff just the pure diesel for those guys... Cruise ships leave these standing though.. 250mt a day.. https://cruises.lovetoknow.com/wiki/How_Much_Fuel_Does_a_Cruise_Ship_Use
  8. Hot and wet is good enough for me... Although I was always perplexed when flying home Varig from Brazil, after the meal when I got a coffee I always asked for a whiskey to go in it. You would receive an egg cup sized cup of strong coffee, and a mug sized shot of whisky to go in it I never complained... Then flying from Trinidad they only ever had Rum, luckily I am not one to complain.
  9. You even posted it the NOTD Thread as well, not even the "Your Worst Joke thread"... Maybe its time for some to nominate themselves on this thread.....
  10. I want to know what's going on at the back of the seat? First thought was a Pillion on that will have to have a strange shape arse... Then noticed no Pillion Pegs. All a bit weird..
  11. All this slavery its amazing how history so easily forgets, the 300 years that we where taken as slaves... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_slave_trade I have been told Cornish villages where built away form the coast to make it harder for them to find... https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofEngland/Barbary-Pirates-English-Slaves/ As for later slaves coming out of Africa its also worth noting "Many nations such as the Bono State, Ashanti of present-day Ghana and the Yoruba of present-day Nigeria were involved in slave-trading. Groups such as the Imbangala of Angola
  12. This has been going on 6 months now, that should give ample time to put measures in place. My local video rental shop & vape supply shop seeing first lock down coming got an online and delivery service running, this was not successful enough (they could not compete against online prices with a shop to service). Surviving the first lockdown knowing a second lockdown would be the end of them, they looked at the rules Tobacconists could stay open and so could off-licences they where essential. They made a decision. This lockdown they shut for 3 days awaiting on the last of mo
  13. I am sure that J&S will step up to the mark on all accounts, it will be a win win win situation. If not the MOTY award can be awarded to the member that gets J&S to flounce
  14. I live in an area with a dodgy mobile network signal. I find that if calling from home and they have Whatapp the call quality is significantly better. Starting to think that Whatapp calls are better than telephone calls. My sister lives abroad we whatapp routinely and call quality isn't bad even driving down the road.
  15. There is an app to help clean water out of speakers .. It works on Samsung, Huawei and Cubot phones. Although oily bilge water seems to challenge the app. My Huawei got tested waterproof to 2m for several hours until the tide went out.
