Mrs Robbie has decreed that money is tight so we are going to be going out less but so that we can still have pleasant evenings in wants me to be able to connect my laptop (toshiba satellite 4 years old) to the Samsung TV (she already has got a mega sony sourrond sound system connected to TV )
now I know I work in IT but just not sure what would be best way to acheive this any ideas
from experts or enthusiastic amateurs or from any one that already has done this kinda thing?

General / Helmet hair!!
« on: 22 May 2012, 09:26:39 AM »
Leading on from the thread asking about new lids, i have a question that may seem a bit vain but please humour me....

I have relatively short hair (normally #2 ) when i take my lid off at work I notice with my Shoei I have definate helmet hair. not that I'm too bothered about my appearance but does make it look like I have a Mr T haircut.
any advice how I can reduce this?
like I say not bothered when out on a ride out & looking round a town or when I am at home just at work & trying to be professional..
oh & if the answer is to grow it longer thats not an option because of the proffesion I'm in.

General / Top Box rack
« on: 28 September 2011, 04:01:04 PM »
OK this probably the wrong section to post this but I'd like members advice,
I got back into biking after over 10 years out and have just bought a 02 Fazer 600
love it and went to cornwall and back at the weekend
when i bought the bike it has a GIVI rack and plate fitted , my question is....
are all givi plates the same and will any size topbox fit it?
whilst using a small rucsac to Cornwall was ok for a one off i'd like to have something I can pack and ride more comfortably
also whist I'm on I will be doing that run alot when the weather is good enough any advice on best luggage to get ie throwovers or is it worth investing in hard luggage?
