A bike collided with a truck, a truck packed full of dynamite....17 dead and a small town levelled!The vid at the beginning seems to mention a gas explosion that was years ago but that's not the story.

Until you accept their offer it's not their bike to dispose of surely.

The easiest way to get a lighter clutch is leave a few plates out, it won't work but will be lighter if you weigh it.

Which studs? If it's a case of getting studs out of a loose ali casting then I can help in st.neots, if still in the frame it's not my thing (unless it's my own problem), sorry but recovering from a hernia op and lazy.And not got many days at work before xmas, it'd be their gear I'd use.

If they are still being made the multi-gauge that replaces the fuel gauge is a tidy way of doing it and gives lots of other functions as well, but the setting that shows your top speed when you come to a halt is very bad for goading the throttle hand.With the addition of a £5 gps module is gives a gps speed as well and can act as a speedo healer if you are on different tyre/sprocket combos.Christian from on here was making them.

I'd like to help but due to a double hernia op 2 days ago my bike's going nowhere for a while, besides that it's cold and I'm a wuss!In my defense my bike IS the bike I wish I owned (luckily I do), it's fun and owes me nowt.

Your bike next to a bike you wished you owned

I doing anything with the carbs Ivans jet kit is definately the way to go, forget dynojet, mine was so smooth all the way through once 'Ivanised'.While you are at it junk the AIS system too as it makes the plugs much easier to get to.

You can have a smart motorway and still have a hard shoulder, surely the variable speed limit is the smart bit which does reduce the stop/start queues as it slows some of the traffic before it gets there.Losing the hard shoulder is a crap idea for sure.

For a far reaching view I was tempted to pull bike out of the garage and lay on the floor beside it to get the moon in view, that's pretty far away.....

I went to a coastal restaurant and tried the seaweed earlier, it's crap! Made the skins go soggy and wouldn't light.
