  1. Has to be in the fridge. Love the snap it makes when you break it and the crack when you bite into it. Heaven!
  2. One of the best chippy’s in my town (Grimsby) has to be Wybers Wood Chippy. Or lovingly just called Wybers Chippy. Owned by a Cypriot family since it opened back in the mid 70’s. It is now run by the two brothers after Dad retired, but should we be lucky enough to go when he has been on the fryer...which isn’t very often nowadays.... anyway it’s still top notch. When me and the wife go it’s Fish, Chips & small gravy for me and a Large bag of Chips, a bag of scraps and a bun for the wife. She’s a veggie. When I get home the Salt & Vinegar goes on before the gravy. S
  3. Welcome to the world of biking. You are in for loads of fun. Before that though. This.... then this
  4. If I was very rich.... and lived in the USA... and was a bit taller... I would definitely like to own one of these...
  5. Have you tried a cramp buster? I've used one of these for 3/4 years now and we did have a discussion about them a while back. I think one will solve your issue of having to grip harder due to less feel. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle-Throttle-Rest-Cruise-Aid-Control-Cramp-Buster-Rocker-/142963248583?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  6. To those that use phones for navigation and have them mounted on the bars..... The accident was a while ago and there is a follow up post somewhere on FB. His mate is doing a crowd fund thing for him to see a band. He said to think twice about having your phone on the bike. He is paralysed and in a wheel chair. This probably would have happened but he might have been able to have called for help. https://www.visordown.com/news/bizarre/rider-found-after-three-days-ditch
  7. Wednesday bike night is packed through the biking season. Loads of eye candy to look at with all sorts of different bikes parked up. You’ll be able to chin wag to your hearts content with a complete stranger. The cafe is expensive and the food is not the best. No butter/marg goes on the bread/buns. I hate that! A cup of tea (polystyrene) is/was £1.25. Both the ladies and men’s toilets are not nice. Dark and dingy. Lucky to find any toilet paper. No soap most of the time. Never any hot water. No paper towels and the hand dryer only works 50% of the time. If you do need to go Hold y
  8. Why are you waiting to get insurance? What if the worst were to happen and your bike gets nicked before you’ve insured it?
  9. Yep. All done and dusted. Left eye 5 weeks in and right 3 weeks. Still very early days but I no longer need glasses. Distance is taking a bit to kick (I was unbelievably far sighted) Can read a number plate at the required distance though but hope to get to somewhere where the distance vision feels more natural. I do have halo’s with headlights. It doesn’t concern me and the Consultant said this will get less in time. I do have some ghosting with text especially white writing on black screen. Which I’ve been told should settle. I have a follow up in 3 months, so will
  10. Completely agree with this. You need at least 3 hours to find out if you like the bike or not. You need to get in as many riding conditions as you can.
  11. Have a look at the Tracer 900. A very capable bike. I owned one for 2 years from 2015. Went to Germany on it for week with some of the guys on here. never missed a beat. As for riding with pillion..... I had only passed my test a week and took my new girlfriend on back. I never told her I’d only just passed my test.... I’d never had a pillion, she’d never been a pillion. What could possibly go wrong?? I just advised her to keep in line with me and not fight the lean. Not get off the bike until I ask her to (so you can get the bike stable and are ready for any weight transf
  12. I hope you have better luck than I did with the SMX5 I had a few years back. They squeaked worse than Sidi’s. The left boot Velcro tab would not stay stuck and the zip would undo itself. After a couple of months I dismounted my bike and thought that the boot had come undone again. It had, but the whole mechanism had come undone. One of the internal screws had lost the bolt and the safety bar was just flopping about. I contacted SportsBikeShop and sent them back. I’ll never touch anything A star again.
  13. Have a read of this. https://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/wtatwta-why-little-engines-can-make-more-power-than-bigger-ones
