General / Arai Stockists East Of England
« on: 03 July 2017, 08:18:11 pm »
 Could anyone recommend me a good shop that stocks the Arai range of helmets within about a 50 mile radius of Cambridge?

I want to go in and try some on rather than ordering online.

Many thanks :)

General / Dartford Crossing Toll Charge Question
« on: 27 June 2017, 05:08:30 am »
Is it possible to pay the toll charge in advance at a Payzone Terminal that's local to me before I travel, or does the charge have to be paid after having made the crossing?.
Traveling by car.

Many thanks in anticipation :)

General / New French Gloves Law
« on: 02 December 2016, 06:10:52 pm »
 An article in this months Vintage Motorcycle Club book drew my attention to this.

 Apparently France has introduced a new law making it compulsory to wear gloves when riding a motorcycle.

General / Today's "What Floats My Boat"
« on: 27 November 2016, 07:40:59 pm »
An opposite thread to the "What Gets My Goat" one.

I'll start it off...

Those new sweeping Audi indicators that light from one side of the unit across to the other. I think they look great 8)

General / The new £5 note
« on: 26 September 2016, 04:44:04 pm »
  What do you all reckon to them?

  Got given my first one in my change at the pub last night.

  Quite an odd slippery feel to it and I wasn't expecting the window so you can look right through it :eek

  It's good to see Churchill on the reverse side though :thumbup



General / Fazer Food
« on: 13 August 2016, 01:32:07 pm »
It could have grown into any one of the 26 letters of the alphabet, but I reckon it made the correct choice ;) ....

General / Harvest Time
« on: 07 August 2016, 07:29:28 pm »
Just a quick heads-up, particularly if you ride a lot of the twisty country roads.

I noticed several grain spillages from farm tractor trailers around some of the bends today.

I've not slid on any thus far, but I imagine it could be pretty dicey if you were leant over mid-corner and rode over a covering of the stuff.

General / AA Breakdown Cover Question
« on: 24 June 2016, 07:07:07 pm »
Hi guys.

Does AA Breakdown Cover also cover you for when you are riding a motorbike instead of driving the car, or do you have to take out specific motorcycle cover?.

Many thanks in anticipation.


FZS600 Fazer / Unobtainable spare parts?
« on: 18 June 2016, 10:15:19 am »
Just out of interest, bearing in mind that even the last Foxeyes are now going to be 13 years old, does anyone know if any of the spare parts are now out of stock with Yamaha?.

General / Cross-Channel hovercraft
« on: 13 February 2016, 10:50:15 am »
Just been reading an article about the campaign to save the 2 redundant Cross-Channel hovercraft at the Hovercraft Museum at Lee-on-Solent from being scrapped.

They have been unused since the year 2000, but apparently could reach speeds of 70 knots (80 mph!) and even recorded a Dover to Calais crossing in 22 minutes :eek.

I never got to travel on them, but did any of you?. If so, what was it like?.

General / Interesting insurance statistic
« on: 22 November 2015, 07:14:16 pm »
According to this, drivers who also held a motorcycle insurance policy were 23% less likely on average to make a claim on their policy ;)...

FZS600 Fazer / Fuel system cleaner additive
« on: 18 November 2015, 07:22:58 pm »
Has anyone used it?. Does it work?.

My FZS 600 is running very poor from cold start-up now. Quite easy to start still, but feels like it's only running on 2/3 cylinders until I get 100 yards or so down the road and past 4/5k revs, when normal service is resumed and it runs and revs cleanly.

Once warmed-up the running is much improved and feels like it's running on 4 all the time, but still feels hesitant and rough below 4/5k revs in any gear.

The idle speed has also dropped significantly.

The bike is completely standard, low mileage (under 7000), regularly and recently serviced.

The bike often sits for several weeks between runs and i'm wondering if the issue is carb deposits caused by deteriorated/evaporated fuel?.

I'm hoping for an easy fix before investigating further :)

Thanks in anticipation. YFF.

Just got the November issue of the above mag through the post and there is a 4 page 1998 boxeye feature/review within  :book.

An early heads-up for anyone interested in (mostly) Japanese bikes from the 1960's thru to the 1990's.
Been to this show a number of times and it never disappoints :).

Unfortunately the show video in the link only concentrates on the race bikes and doesn't give any idea of the rest of the displays/stalls/exhibits etc...

General / Evel Knievel

FZS600 Fazer / Tyre fitters in Cambridge area
« on: 16 May 2015, 08:29:06 pm »
Can anyone recommend me a good motorcycle tyre fitters in the Cambridge/Cambridgeshire area?. Was going to go to Wheel-Fit at Landbeach, but I hear they are no longer trading.

Many thanks YFF.
