Yes BM, there is a big drop below the windows and no you can't even see the bike if you are by the windows in the garden because of their height but they still insisted it was  o better than being on the drive. Stupid bastards don't say anythIng on their website about the window issue so guess

The REALLY silly thing is by saying the bike is kept in the garage, if it is on the drive at anytime and gets stolen the excess doubles to £500. By saying it is kept on the drive, the policy price increases by just £20!

If it has, it is classed as keeping the bike on the driveway!
At least thats what HastingsDirect are saying!!!!!!!

Shoei lids have a space for earphones already (at least my last two have) so you shouldnt need to cut anything.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: GOING TO LOOK AT A Y PLATE FAZER TOM
« on: 19 March 2012, 04:52:22 PM »
A Y Plate 600 with just 1900 miles on it!!!!!

Stop shouting first :pokefun

Compared to the P plate CBR you will find the wind buffetting you around a lot but in terms of performance, the Fazer will be just as quick and stop even quicker (if the brakes havent seized).
Things to look out for on the FZS600 are few and far between. If it seems a bit vibbey, it probably needs the carbs balanced or the TPS reseting. Neither are big jobs.
Downpipes rot very quickly and the headlights are shite (square light model) but easily fixable (dual light mod or HID's). Apart from that, not a lot goes wrong with them.

Given the age and mileage, if you do go for it, I would suggest a good look at replacing the tyres and a good service but apart from that, enjoy!

ah bollix. The iPhone 4S won in the end. Just trying to get used to it now. Everyone says how good they are but there are standard features on the Androids which you cannot do on the iPhone.

I will see how I get on with it and maybe swap it with the wifes S2 later if I cannot get on with it.

Madders, just write back to him telling him you know he is talking bollox becasue O2 have confirmed it and sign it PC Madders. Chances are he will sh!t himself at tha point, especially if you send it from the work address.

Replace both with a CBF1000?

Depends on who it is opposite you but you could say something like "did your mum dress you this morning?"

Slan,  take a look at the CBF 1000 forum. Not as good as here but lots of useful stuff about the bikes. I have the 1000 but the 600 is almost identical and covered on that forum too.

tourx,  I wouldn't worry about it too much. My Mrs was diagnosed with epilepsy 15 years ago. It was only after an episode last year where they put her on a proper heart monitor that they correctly diagnosed it as a rare heart condition ( torsades des pointes) which resulted in her heart doing 365bpm :eek

Looks like the Galaxy S3 is out in a few weeks so may have to wait and see what deals are about then on the new model.

Andy, have a look in the Hot Poop area for all the differences but the basics are:

Different rear pegs, different fairing, clock, adjustable forks and a different filler tube on the tank meaning more fuel can be put in easily.

GF, the Mrs has the S2 and it is a good phone.

Locksmith, yes, O2 appears when I do a network search unlike 3 and Orange.

Congratulations but, it has to be asked, is she mad?

I have the Samsung Galaxy S at the moment. Phone works well most of the time apart from teh occasional lock up which is probably more related to keeping it in my pocket. The problem is network coverage. I am with 3 and most of the time this is OK but I stay regularly at a hotel in Huntingdon where there is fec all signal on 3 (my phone) or Orange (works phone) so looking to move to O2 (vodafone on works dongle is crap too).
Should I just go for a SIM only contract and keep the Galaxy S or get a new phone?
Been looking at the Galaxy S2, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S but cant make up my mind. I do use the Wifi Hotspot thing for laptop/iPad access that the Android phones have so if iPhones dont do this, they are out of the mix. Any suggestions?

General / Re: Bikes For Taller People
« on: 23 February 2012, 04:03:59 PM »
or any 1000cc naked
its only really 600cc and sports bikes that are tricky
The CBF1000 is effectively the CBF600 with a bigger engine so I wouldnt recommend that based on the comment above. That said, it is quite roomy.
The Tiger or BMW would be the best for a tall person though,.

I have heard a rumour that after Saturday, all the Sony stores are closing so if you have anything on order with them, now is the time to run in and pick it up!

General / Re: Towing Tow bars or Tow Ropes?
« on: 16 February 2012, 10:39:33 PM »
It is not illegal to use a tow rope on the motorway. Not advisable, but not illegal. Tow ropes are for recovery (emergencies in other words) tow poles are better at allowing the towing vehicle to brake for both vehicles. tow bars are what is fitted to the back of a car that tows a caravan.
