A lot of it will be just you getting used to the bike. Going for another gear (7th) is quite normal. We all do it :)
As for the vibration, do you know when the carbs were last balanced? This makes a big difference to the vibration.

Was following an Audi Q7 yesterday that presumably had changed the lights for his rear number plate to blue ones. did actually look quite good to be honest, not sure if a traffic cop would agree though?

Number plate lights you shouldn't be abel to see from the rear of the car as they are white normally. What you are probably seeing is the reflection which, believe it or not, is actually legal.

Absolutely correct and yet people don't get prosecuted for wearing them or selling them so why did the guy in this story ends up being fined for something that was far less suggestive.

I suspect his attitude played a part but also the blue light on the bike wont have helped his cause.

Under construction regulations and use you are not allowed to use a Battenberg colour scheme. From what I can remember, colour of the Battenberg is not the issue hence the reason the AA have stopped using it on their vans now. You also cannot have blue lights on the vehicles. All the show vehicles you see in police markings, all have their blue lights covered up when being driven on the road.

Be careful because if you keep saying that, we will end up having to add another letter like this - LGBT&

Corrected that there for you Mr Sharp so people get the correct thing in their minds :)

My understanding is that the motive was to proceed more freely through rush-hour traffic by giving other road users the impression that it's a police bike and hoping that they give way.

When I had my Pan European, just wearing a high viz jacket made a big different even though the bike was slow red and I had a black helmet, people moved out of the way much better than whenever I didn't wear the high viz.
The muppets probably thought I was plod as I used to get people intentionally blocking my way without hi-viz but nobody tried that when I wore it.

Now there‚Äôs a thing that pisses me off.  All the folks who call themselves Engineers but are nothing of the sort.

I am an engineer, not an artist

Would be interesting if under the freedom of information act they would the release the figures of life sentenced prisoners released on parole that go on and commit further murders.

Go on  -  Give it a go. Word your question correctly though so there's no reason to decline it.

Interesting that Robert Thompson has not put a foot wrong since.

I may be wrong (I usually am) but I thought he got relocated to the prison colony and may have had an issue or two there. We will never know if he has put a foot wrong there as they don't know his background!!

He is an adult now. These offenses took place as an adult so his name should be in the public domain. That said, his name was changed due to his earlier office when he was a child. The trouble is they cannot publish that name.

Time to send him down for life with no chance of parole. He has proven he cannot be trusted too often and as such does not deserve to go free.

I will refer you to rule 243 of the highway code. This is something you can get a parking ticket for (though most plod and wardens don't bother)

DO NOT stop or park:
- opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space

Look at the picture again and see how it is parked against the kerb!

It appears to be parked on a junction. Maybe they issued the ticket for that rather than the non-display. The person receiving the ticket probably didn't even read it :pokefun

Was it the warden couldn't see his permit or because he parked like a tw@t?

If he died in Hammersmith, these people may have a record of burials and cremations.

the only difference i can see is that OEM=4lines, RACE=3lines

I thought the OEM brakes were 1 line from the master to a splitter and then one to each caliper = 3 lines.
A race setup would be 2 lines direct from the master to the calipers.

You WILL notice a difference. It may only have 55% of the cc, but it has 300% of the acceleration of the Virago and 1000% of the handling ability :pokefun

Depending on the colour of the case you can sometimes see through (with a bright torch on the opposite side) to see the fluid levels.

Alternatively, whilst they say they are sealed............

Oh Jesus is this still going on???

Errm no.

Grahamm's post isn't about Brexit/politics is it?.

If we were to embrace the French rules, filtering would be illegal.

Bring on Brexit.

Are you using the choke?

If not, try it.

If it runs on choke it will be gummed up pilot jets. Loads of people have had this problem this year. Took the carbs off my dads bike last weekend and ended up using drain cleaner to clean the jets along with a very fine bit of wire.

People who are gender fluid are not gay, they were born with the wrong brain. Their genitals indicate one sex, while their mind may indicate another. It really really is none of our business.

Corrected that mistake for you mtread
