Saw on the back of an open reach van a sticker saying. "Limited to 70mph to protect the environment". I thought we were all limited to 70mph   :rolleyes

General / Re: Bennetts Insurance a good renewal story
« on: 17 October 2020, 09:34:26 PM »
I think my insurance is the lowest on their books so I do not think I will get anything less. £250 compulsory excess no voluntary. Fully comp but no pillion if that makes a difference, garaged. and no commuting. 3k per year milage I think it is.

Just poked my head in there and I see that members have been in and then logged out. How does it actually work. Does anyone actually use it,

I used to think bad taste was better than no taste. now I'm not sure?
Most of these bikes do not look like they could actually be ridden. How do you not burn your leg on that exhaust.
Think the thread should be renamed - The Stupid Bike Thread.

directed a Salisbury employee and got them to move the fcukwit.

I should have taken a photo and forwarded it to the Council, but I didn't think of that until I was on my way again :(
I really really doubt that they would do anything. Private land. The only thing you can do is what you have done --- go on to a bike forum and moan, and we will all moan with you - it helps  :)

I would of had words with the idiot when I pulled up --------------- errr or maybe after I had returned after having a p1ss just in case he did something to my bike when I was not there and then drove off.
Uncharacteristically a good point, better to keep your bike safe. I would have either bamped the horn and then had a word. Or better, avoid any conflict what so ever and just directed a Salisbury employee and got them to move the fcukwit.

No need for that, it was a perfectly civil conversation.  You are supposed to be a MOD, act like one.

Well tough focing sh1t !!!! that is exactly what the adult / old population of the whole country has has to go through while the young carried on with their lives as normal.
Only in name, the major difference is there are substantiated reports of the private security guards (sorry Nazis) physically blocking students from leaving thier dorms.

These security drones clearly have delusions of grandeur, they have no business, no legal jurisdiction what so ever. The police should be arresting these cnuts, not allowing them to act with impunity.

"The police should be arresting these cnuts, not allowing them to act with impunity." -- what do you mean the students  :rollin

I agree the security guards are acting way beyond their remit. I had to complain about one outside Morrisons - strutting about barking at people confused as to where to queue if you have a trolley or basket as at the time shoppers with baskets were fast tracked

It was time for the winter jacket yesterday. I thought it might have been overkill, but by the time we got to the breakfast stop, my two companions were decidedly cold. Spent much of the morning in Sussex yesterday, breakfasting at The Roedean, before some cross country to the A22 at Halland, then the Ashdown Forest back into Kent and then home. Last weeks thrash on the Triumph loosened up the headlamp bolts and broke the speedo cable. The new cable was certainly still working as I rolled on to the drive with 180 miles on the trip, and just in time for MotoGP. An enjoyable morning without a doubt.
I have the same issues because I don't ride all the time and there can be big gaps in my riding I only remember the last time I went out and haven't had the slower process of adding layers.

Today's what gets my goat is hearing students whinging about having to isolate in their halls of residence saying they feel imprisoned, moaning they cannot get food delivered, feeling scared. Well tough focing sh1t !!!! that is exactly what the adult / old population of the whole country has has to go through while the young carried on with their lives as normal.

Still got my "Never Wets Badge".
So have I  ;) :thumbup :sun :rollin
Back in the 80s and my first bike I had to ride in all weathers and my "waterproofs" were sh1t - it was a one piece over all and I remember there was always a little pond that gathered on the seat in front of my crotch (yes I know what I said  :lol )  I had to stand up on the footrests every now and then to drain the pond but I still ended up with a wet arse until about 2 pm until it was time to do it all again on the way home.

 Then I had a big gap in my riding and in that time no doubt waterproofs got better but it was too late for me as I was already traumatised and vowed never to ride in the wet again.

Ive been along that section of M6 and would love to go 60mph, its usually going 40. 

 So yes the experiment will show that 60 reduces pollution on that section - cause people have used another route.

Not political as they are Ex PM's and one labour and one conservative. But just seen them on the news walking shoulder to shoulder ( unless it was archive footage ) where's the social distancing.

It does sound sensible to exclude under 12s, just the same as they are exempt from wearing masks

Ah I see, well I will be sure to do all the prep work myself then to make sure its done right 👍
I thought they used shot blasting or somthing like that which would just rip off your masking g

Depending on what they’re like, maybe disc bolts and sprocket nuts. Make sure they mask off properly the disc bolt areas. :thumbup

No they are both more or less brand new as ive replaced them within the past year 👍 I was thinking about putting the old ones back in the empty wheel while its powder coated? That way the threads will stay clean wont they?
I think it's the whole mating surface between the wheel and disk that you need to keep spotless
