Not sure if its nostalgia, boy's toys, aversion to walking uphill or just novelty value................but I really fancy one of these.

General / Re: Can't decide which convertible - all advice appreciated
« on: 10 October 2018, 10:39:52 AM »
Well I recently bought the new MX5 and it is brilliant. Though I concede the old style was a bit girlie, the new style ND has been butched up and its as close to a Ferrari or Aston as I will ever own.
If your pockets are deep enough, how about   https://www.gumtree.com/p/ford/%C2%A33000-discount-0-apr-new-ford-mustang-0-apr-finance-5.0-v8-gt-convertible-/1307065167

A guy takes his reluctant married friend out for a few beers. The friend says "Listen. Don't get me pissed cos last time I threw up all down my shirt and the wife gave me such a bollocking when I got home"
Inevitably it turns into a session and, also inevitably, the friend barfs up all down his shirt again.
"Now look at the messsh I'm in, hows am I gonna exshplain thish to the wife?"
Easy says his mate. Just put a ten pound note in your shirt pocket and say it was the bloke standing next to you at the bar and he gave you a tenner to have your shirt cleaned.
All goes well till he staggers back home and gives his story to the missus.
She is very sceptical and checks his shirt pocket for the money only to find a £20 note. "So how do you explain this?" she demands.

"Eashy" says the shame faced hubby....................................... "He shit me pants as well"

General / Re: What Fazer did you spot today?
« on: 22 July 2018, 08:40:45 AM »
While working Shepperton Lock and old style red Fazer arrived and I gave the rider "the Foccer salute"

He looked at me like I was mad.

Apparently not a member.

General / GATWICK PARKING
« on: 16 June 2018, 09:35:19 AM »
I seem to remember some foccer on here saying that he got a good deal on a hotel and parking at Gatwick?
As I have an early flight my cunning plan is to arrive the night before, have a few leisurely beers, stay the night and then leave my car at the Hotel for the week.
Any recommendations?

Sorry to hear this. I agree that taxi drivers, who should be among the safest and most expert drivers on the road, are the worst.

Dea-ville...............................sorry to disappoint you. Yes I am that guy with a cap on to prevent my wrinkly old bald head from sunburn.May I refer you to my site name?
YamFaz................... its the 2.0 SPORT NAV and so far it has been fantastic fun. Don't think you could fit a spare in the boot as they are 17" profiles but you can buy a luggage rack and carry a spare on that. It does come with an emergency can of puncture repair, but it also came with 3 years free RAC breakdown cover, so, DILLIGAFF.I also originally wanted the RF but I suggest you test drive both. :)

A few helpful memories from my Fazer days.
First gear is and always will be very clunky. Make sure the bike is in neatral before trying to start, caught me out many times.
Similarly, make sure the power off swith on the handlebars is ON !
Get in the habit of cancelling your indicator after the turn.
Make sure the kick stand is fully down before getting off the bike. That one got me once. Also, as I remember it, you can't start the bike with the stand down.
Find your nearest BIKE-SAFE run by the Police. A very worthwhile day.

Happy Foccing.

UPDATE............... just received an email from old insurers in response to my cancellation, "We have checked our system and found a better price of £193"

Lick it, stick it and mail it to someone who gives a FOC.

As per usual my car insurers sent me a risible renewal premium.
Paid £161 last year and they wanted £221 to renew, including a £10 renewal fee?

So, a quick search on USWITCH and found a premiun of around £165. Then checked on TOPCASHBACK and Aviva had a good offer. Clicked through and their quote was £149 but they gave me a discount for "returning" to them and I paid just £129.62, saving £92 !!!

Then this morning good old Topcashback emailed to say I was due £60 cashback so my cage premium ends up at just £69.62 for the year.

YES PLEASE, DONE AND DUSTED.  :D

Can anyone beat that?

General / ONE OF THOSE "DOH!" MOMENTS.
« on: 01 April 2018, 09:48:52 AM »
Needed to top up the fuel tank on the buggy I drive (Painshill Park) so fetched the jerry can but could not open the latch. Gave it all my huff 'n puff with no movement. Asked two colleagues and both equally stumped.
The manager appeared and watched for a while before saying "If you remove the locking pin, it will be easier"

DOH !!!!
Because of the cap design it looked like the pin was part of the hinge.   :rolleyes    :'( [/size]

In their defence Millie, some modern cars have front and rear fog lights linked so you cannot turn off the rear if front are on.

Or maybe a brake light repeater on the dashboard so they can annoy themselves as well?

IMHO a major cause of accidents these days are the "Brake dabbers" who, mainly because they follow too closely, constantly speed up to the vehicle in front then brake to move back. Following vehicles are likely to either over react and slam on the brakes or ignore the constant brake lights ahead then get caught out by some real braking.
I followed a typical vehicle yesterday which in 30 mph traffic on a straight road with no hazards I counted over 20 brake dabs in about 1.5 miles.
I did not need to brake once.

A weasel walks into a bar and the barman says "Wow we don't see many weasels in here. What would you like?"

"Pop" goes the weasel.
