Re: EU. In or out?

Whilst that may be true, virtually every economist including many who favour leaving the EU, reckon that we will be worse off in the short term. What the Leavers like Mogg and Gove disagree on is whether the short term will be ten or thirty years. Obviously they still have no plan that will get us b...

Re: EU. In or out?

Does the failure of the Tories to publish the report into Russian interference in the UK bother Leave voters? Obviously we do not know what it says, but the failure to publish could lead some to believe Boris has something to hide. We know that American pharmaceutical companies and their farmers are...

Re: Sealskinz Heated Waterproof Gloves.

My Gerbing gloves came from get geared in Leeds, I seem to remember they also did heated inner gloves as well. There was another bike clothing superstore next door which did a different make of heated gloves as well.

Re: Africa Twin for road riding only - opinions?

I suspect that the vast majority of ATs never leave the tarmac, at least not intentionally, the same is true for most large ‘Adventure’ bikes. Basically these bikes make good all rounders, much better than sports bikes and with modern engines and suspension more than capable of providing all the on ...

Re: Sealskinz Heated Waterproof Gloves.

As others have said Gerbing heated gloves are excellent. You can get battery packs for them as well. My first heated gloves came second hand from eBay and were actually branded Harley although I think they were made by Gerbing. I used them to commute on my Norton in the really cold (-15 on some days...

Re: EU. In or out?

As I said so far the reasons that I have heard for remaining far outweigh those for leaving, but one day someone may come up with something to convince me. Like other freedoms I suspect we will only value the freedom of movement when we lose it.

Re: EU. In or out?

What I currently have is the freedom to travel and if I chose to, to live and work in the EU. I have been in the fortunate position to use that freedom to travel within it, many times in the last few years. My daughter currently and my wife previously, have taken the opportunity to work in other cou...

Or the sense of freedom you have from being in the EU.

Re: Tracing an old bike

It probably depends what it is and how old it is. I think you can see online when it was last sorned or taxed. If it is old enough it will not need an MOT anymore. Try owners forums if there is one for your old bike. Most of my old bikes I was glad to be rid off and those I wish I had kept I don’t t...

Re: EU. In or out?

If IN OUT was so clear why is it that so many leavers are still unclear about it? As the vote was so close, the best outcome would surely be to find a compromise, however the Brexit party and the ERG have not allowed that to happen, because their interpretation of the questions was a hard or no deal...
