General / Why is the site running as if
« on: 08 May 2017, 12:24:07 AM »
Why is the site running as if it was on dial up, slow as fu-k again and it is not my computer as no problems on any other sites.

General / Fly United airlines, hope you can fight
« on: 27 April 2017, 07:56:17 AM »
Anyone  on here if travelling with United airlines would be willing to vacate there seat if asked as the flight has been over booked??
Just picture the scene a 747 or some other type large aircraft over that is booked.
Today United airlines have decided to increase the compensation package for passengers who do willing give up  their seat.
The new package will be $10,000!!!! so instead of having one disgruntled passenger kicking and screaming when being dragged off a flight, you will now have perhaps about 300+ passengers kicking each other to pieces fighting to get off.
No doubt about it Ryanair or Easy Jet will follow there lead hahahaha.


So here we are first road race of the season and we already have one fatality. Sadly Dario Connci a 38 year Italian has died. Dario was a regular at the Tandragee 100 this being his 6th visit. He was taken out by another competitor who came off thankfully the other rider was not badly injured.
R.I.P  Dario. I have been a road race fan since I was a kid but every year I grow to dislike the sport. Let's hope this is the last fatality this season.

General / Site really slow

General / An english man & a scotsman etc
« on: 25 March 2017, 12:38:45 AM »
An English man , a Scotsman and an Irishman want to go to the Olympic games but don't have tickets. As they are walking to the venue they pass a building site.
The Englishman spots a scaffolding pole picks it up and goes to entrance , He says George pole vault and they let him in. The Scotsman sees a grating  and says Jimmy discus, the Irishman sees a roll of barbed wire and says Shemaus, fencing

Events, Meets, Ride outs etc / SW France to Northern Costa Blanca
« on: 19 March 2017, 08:00:51 PM »

Just back from a 10 day trip from were I live SW France to the Costa Blanca were I used to live. Why did I ever move away from Spain.
Anyway did my best to avoid the Toll roads and Motorways. Broke the run up down and back with an overnight stop in a cheap hostel **star used €25.00 basic but comfortable and clean. Decent enough bar /restaurant in Monreal del Campo about 100kms south of Zaragoza. Had a bit of a thirst on me so had 6 pints and a large whiskey to take to bed that and my menu del Dia € 24.00.
Had good dry and warm weather all the way down,. Great biking roads N 330 is a cracker s is the N284. Only day it rained was the Monday but seeing as I was having a day away from the bike with my mate did not bother me.
I had a couple of days getting re familiar again with the Bernia Mountains at the back of Benissa and Jalon valley. I love it up there and with the tourist not about one could misbehave.
Came back over the Pyrenees passing through Formigal and Panitcosa ski resorts again weather amazing. The only down side with the MT09 is the fuel tank size at 14 litres it is a pain as if you are giving it some you can be looking for a petrol station every 100 mils or so. This is my 3rd long haul tour in a year. Sw France to N Ireland last April, Sw France to N  Wales in September and this run. Not bad for an old fart at 68.

General / Any chefs on here
« on: 25 February 2017, 12:27:01 PM »

General / Bit of tweaking today
« on: 19 February 2017, 06:43:19 PM »
I have been playing around with my Tutoro oil feed to see if I can get a more even feed across the chain. Hopefully this will also lead to less throw off onto the back wheel, what you reckon?

General / Looks as if Spring isaround the corner
« on: 18 February 2017, 10:46:03 AM »
Yesterday SW France , 5 mins from were I live. Hopefully Spring is just around the corner it was 16 degrees mid afternoon but still gets bloody cold at night. Lovely countryside by me but the roads are crap for biking, covered in mud with the farmers or else gravel. I did find one decent road with some good twisties  so rode the length of it to check it out. Had a blast but Jaysus am I rusty or what, had best get the L Plates out as a guy on a Bergman pushed me all the way lol.

General / Stock seat issues
« on: 14 February 2017, 05:50:56 PM »

Shall we say all in the lew600fazer house hold has been strained for sometime now. I came back from the Dechetterie (dump) and my wonderful wife has a face on her like well smacked arse.
She kicks off , I am sick of you getting speeding tickets, from now on I will do the driving. 58kph in a 50 zone 26th January, so €90 fine.
Must admit I have had one or two since I left the UK for Spain and latterly France. So I gets to thinking and asks her check the Calendar was the 26th a Thursday ?  yes she says. well I took a fit of laughing, what's so fucking funny she says. Well you can deal with this one as I was out on my bike on that Thursday, Yes I fucking know you where!!!, Check the ticket dear you were in Bordeaux and it is the car reg number on the ticket not the bike.
It is worth paying the fine because the look on her face was a picture,  :lol

General / Made me laugh

Because of his stupidity and clumsiness, his Reception Class teacher was always yelling at him, "You're driving me crazy, Tyrone!"
One day, Tyrone's mother came to school to check on how he was doing. The teacher told his mother honestly, that her son was simply a disaster, getting very low marks, and that she had never seen such a stupid boy in her entire teaching career.
The mother was so shocked at the feedback that she withdrew her son from school, moved out of London and relocated to Birmingham.
Twenty-five years later, the teacher was diagnosed with an almost incurable cardiac disease. All the doctors strongly advised her to have open heart surgery, but there was only one surgeon in Britain who could perform the operation and he was located at the Birmingham Clinic. Left with no other options, the teacher decided to have the operation which, was successful.
When she came round after surgery she saw a handsome young doctor smiling down at her. She wanted to thank him, but could not talk. Her face started to turn blue, she raised her hand, trying to tell him  something but quickly died. The doctor was shocked; wondering what could possibly have gone  wrong so suddenly. Then he turned around and saw our friend Tyrone, a cleaner in the Clinic, who had unplugged the life-support equipment in order to connect his vacuum cleaner.


 ........ if you thought for one moment that Tyrone had become a heart-surgeon, there is a high likelihood that you voted for Jeremy Corbyn and he believes in fairies as well !!

General / Sunny Costa Blanca today
« on: 18 January 2017, 05:04:51 PM »

Well glad I have not booked a week away for some winter sun in Spain this week. But at least they have the gear to handle what ever the weather throws at them.

General / MOT regs
« on: 24 December 2016, 11:49:49 PM »
I may be returning to live in the UK in the new year. Question Will I be able to have my bike registered on British plates and will it pass an MOT if the speedometer (Digital readout)is only in KPH. Unlike UK spec bikes which you can change from MPH to KPH at the push of a button EU spec bikes do not have this facility.

© Sky News Screen Grab How VW Scandal Has Hit Trust In Big Car Brands
 Volkswagen (VW) is to cut its workforce by 30,000 over the next five years as it acts to save costs following the diesel emissions scandal.
 The German carmaker said it was committed to no compulsory redundancies under the union deal, with 23,000 of the positions to go at factories in its home market and the rest in North America and Brazil.
 VW said the job losses were "socially acceptable" as it prepared... to relaunch the brand by 2020 - tainted by the rollout of software in 11 million diesel vehicles that was designed to cheat emission testing. SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE???
 SO IS THIS ALSO SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE........Martin Winterkorn, faced with the company's widening crisis over its rigging of emissions tests, announced his resignation as CEO of Volkswagen Group Wednesday. He is likely to leave with a pension valued around $32 million, and possibly with many millions more, depending on what the board decides regarding his severance payment.
 According to the company's most recent annual report, Winterkorn had amassed a pension worth €28.6 million ($32 million) at the end of last year. And despite the scandal enveloping the German auto giant over its admission that it cheated on its diesel emissions data, compensation experts predict he'll receive it. Yet again the common man and woman getting shafted because of some other CEO FUC-UP. Bet if Adolf had still been around this fucker would not be getting €32 million.

General / Pissed myself laughing
« on: 17 November 2016, 06:44:23 PM »

My Mrs and I are going our separate ways, we live in separate parts of the house, but have to admit she did have me in stitches today.
I went out shopping this morning and when I came back there was a guy on the roof of the house. He called down to me something in French to which I gave the Gallic Shrug.
I asks her what the guy is doing on the roof, fixing a ridge tile !!!, okay, and I thought no more about it. 10 minutes later this guy is going ballistic. Oh, by now he is shouting in English, What's up with him I asks her.
Turns out he told her there were two tiles needed fixing , so two tiles. She says the robbing bastard said €20 for the first tile, ok ,so now he says he wants €50 for doing the two so I told him to fuck off and have taken his ladder away.
This lad was about 30 maybe 35 and built like a builder. I thought fuck this and pissed off out on the MT09.
Roof looks okay, wife has an ear to ear grin on her face, we agreed €30 for the two, he left two hours ago.

General / Grandpa's Eh!!!
« on: 14 November 2016, 05:22:59 PM »

A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly-behaved grandson.

He has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets, biscuits, all sorts of things. The grandad is saying in a controlled voice: "Easy, William, we won't be long . . . easy boy."

Another outburst and she hears the Grandad calmly say : "It's okay William. Just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in there, boy."

At the checkout the little horror is throwing items out of the trolley. Grandad says again in a controlled voice : "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes, stay cool William."

Very impressed, she goes outside to where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. She says :

"It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandad."

"Thanks," says the grandpa. "But I am William. The little ba****d's name is Kevin."
