General / Blood biker death
« on: 12 May 2018, 09:35:26 AM »
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/may/07/family-pay-tribute-to-volunteer-blood-biker-killed-in-lancaster-collision

occurred earlier this week and most of you may have seen it

condolences to his family, friends and volunteer colleagues, even with all that hi viz someone has not seen him. But to be fair, I don't know the road so cannot comment on blind spots etc. Be interesting to see what the car driver has to say

General / satnav query
« on: 11 May 2018, 08:05:22 PM »
anyone fitted a satnav to Pan or a similar bike that doesn't have standard bars?

by that, I mean if you look at the bars on a Pan then it's like having two separate individual bars (one on each side) with no middle bit of bar where you'd usually fit the bracket for satnav

I want advice on the best type of satnav for a Pan (fitting wise) if anyone has done it/knows anyone who's done it

cheers

General / Taxing a bike/refund of tax
« on: 19 April 2018, 07:38:28 PM »
sold me bike today and got a Pan, it's my understanding that the tax ends at point of sale and you tell DVLA who will refund if applicable. Question is, the online Government dept only operates from 7am  - 7pm so I cannot do it tonight and I need to be on the road before 7am tomorrow. If I take a chance and ride to work, what happens if I'm pulled.....am I barley like when you're going to the MOT station with no MOT (dubious as no proof that I'd be deffo paying for tax) so what would the offence be.......if no tax does that mean no valid insurance?

bit of a pickle tbh

General / big tourers

been thinking of a Pan ST1300 A6 or A9 but looked at a few ads yesterday for the newer FJR 1300A then someone today mentions the kwacker 1400

anyone had any experiences of these bikes

Pan 1300 arrived 2002 I think, FJR has been around 15 years albeit the new model now has a 6spd box and LED lights, Kwacker is probably the newest but unsure on the finish as most Kwackers I've heard of are poor quality finish

thoughts please gents

General / who's responsible?
« on: 07 September 2017, 03:29:56 PM »
car gets picked up earlier for its last service as part of the service deal. They ring and say 2 tyres are .9mm from the legal limit, shall we replace......I said no as that's almost 1 mm
2.6 being legal limit

then he says there's a nail in the side wall and the tyre is punctured but I wouldn't have seen it.....now we get going.....I say you've done it driving the car in as my tyres were ok, his reply was prove it. I argue that the ECU would've picked up the puncture and he says the nail's still in so not leaking!
he speaks to Manager who offers discount but no replacement tyre, so after 20 mins I ring back and explain to manager I complete POWDDERS checks before every ride/drive and also works vehicles so how come I don't see it but the mechanic does......he argues he cannot afford to replace tyres and they have collected free of charge, my counter is that its in your custody so you're responsible. He's gone to look at it and speak to his manager. I'm getting the feeling the trying to have me off over two tyres as its the last time they'll have the car under warranty.

your thoughts please?

General / speeding query
« on: 25 February 2017, 03:42:33 PM »
think I've been collared by a scamera van today, looked on google maps at where he was and he's on a single yellow line but I'll have to go down and see if there's a quantifying plate on the roadside or can the Police park where they like?
I didn't think they could operate outside of the law to catch you but we're talking about traffic here, not catching threats to the State!

have tried attaching an image of the area but if anyone knows the area around the new tunnel on Scotland Rd Liverpool, he was parked at the bottom of Juvenal St where it meets Scotty Rd. There's a fixed camera further back up the road where there's a built up area but the road opens up where the tunnel egress road comes onto Scotty. Can only think this is a pure revenue scam as no pedestrians cross the road here (railings across bottom of Juvenal St and no crossing across Scotty

about 50 in a 30 so expecting a NIP if he's got me

General / kindle fire advice needed
« on: 17 January 2017, 08:36:52 PM »
Mrs maddog wants to listen to audio books on the kindle (fire). I'm a pooter fuckwit and can't do foc all so can the foccer font of knowledge advise me how to download "free" audio books to the kindle?

ATM (at the mo......not porn you dirty gits :lol) I'm logging in to the wife's amazon account and looking but after searching free audio, it then offers a free book but you have to pay to be able to listen......flies in the face of what I'm trying to achieve.

or is there another way of downloading free audio books to the kindle ;) but remember I'm shit at all this malarkey so keep it simple

Before you lot start........I cannot and will not sit on the edge of the bed and say......Once upon a time :lol

General / kindle fire
« on: 14 February 2016, 09:19:55 AM »
anyone using showbox......the app that lets you watch/download all sorts free?

lads in work have this app on their phones and I've just bought the Mrs a kindle so she can pass the time in ozzy. They've downloaded the app onto the kindle and have downloaded some films/episodes of Luther but the kindle is only 8gb storage. I bought a good 32gb card but the issue is that everything is saving to the internal memory rather than the sd card even though we've ticked the tabs to say "save to card"

anyone know how to work around this as at present we can only have 3 episodes of Luther (until I get rid of the film) we need to be able to start saving everything to the card?

thanks in advance

General / STROKE.........advice and help needed
« on: 27 December 2015, 09:35:20 PM »
wife suffered a serious stroke just before xmas, she was driving at the time and we must be grateful for small mercies as she could've literally died as her route took her over a flyover during the attack and she said she was all over the road

I'm due to sit down with the whole team at some point to discuss things but as its xmas most of the staff are on hols

wife is paralysed down the left side with limited vision, speech is quiet but clear, She is fully compus mentis with the odd bit of confusion but I don't know what the future holds, bleed still on the brain so until the blood is absorbed back into the body, no further scan can take place

I need your advice reference the way to get help once she's home.....at least 6 weeks away.....just asking if anyone has suffered this in the family and can give me some pointers

me lads distraught seeing his mum like this, I'm being as strong as poss for everyone but I'm fucked after 5 days.....just ensuring we're there for her and we eat and sleep as much as poss, his works are being a tad arsey, mine are ok for now but don't know how far they'll go

all advice greatly appreciated

General / summer clothing
« on: 07 July 2015, 08:44:32 AM »
after sweating like a peado priest at an altar boys convention, for the first time ever I've seriously been considering getting some vented/aero kit

I got home after 20 miles and stripped the linings out of my textile kex and swapped me textile jacket for me leather, opened a few vents and it was bliss on the next ride

can anyone recommend any decent kit with armour?
also, given that we hardly have any decent weather over here, is it worth the money considering what little use it may get (I don't go abroad)

cheers

General / Widnes bike meets
« on: 19 June 2015, 03:42:59 PM »
anyone on here go to the Tuesday night meets at the Tomar café St. Mikes Ind estate?
If so, I'll be running a slightly watered down version of the Bikerdown course that we do in work, August 2nd is the date we'll be there so if you fancy it then let George the owner know that you'll be there. I called in with the pump last week and there was a yellow foxeye there but got a job before I had a chance to find the owner.......might be one of us off here
