Re: Banned music

I don't see this getting a huge amount of airplay in the current climate either.

I'm showing my age now...
Never mind " give me a 'F'".

Headlight

Because I'm old and decrepit I found off roading my 350 Cagiva too much like hard wok, so I've got myself a DR-Z250 which I love. I'm off to the Paddy Dakar again next month, which has a night section so I have decided to replace the Suzuki 25w headlight unit with one that will take an H4 bulb. The ...

Re: h7 headlight bulbs?

If a certain section of the market are prepared to pay a premium price for ' special' parts aimed specifically at that area of the marketplace , then those items will be made and sold. Whether they offer any advantages over the regular product is a moot point as cars also suffer from vibration and j...

Re: Goodbye Capt. America

After my previous critique of capitalism , I thought I would reflect on my experience of the film Easy Rider. 'Easy Rider' was on at the Elisian in Cheadle Hulme as a double bill with 'The prime of Miss Jean Brodie'. I was 13 in 1969 and my parents went to see the two films before deciding if I woul...

Re: Goodbye Capt. America

"Yeah that Woodstock footage was amazing wasn't it? Really feels like a different era now." Whatever cannot be monetarised , must be destroyed. This countrys free festival network of the seventies went two ways, one was the "New age" travellers' convoy' destroyed at the battle of the beanfield. http...

Re: Bloody BMW prices

18k to 24 k is like 6000 miles .....a grand for a service , thats 1000 divided by 6000, then . According to my maths, give or take a fraction , thats nearly 17 pence a f*%$ing mile. Something in your life is very wrong mate. Surely get it done at a proficient independant.

Re: Ural sidecar rig

I learnt to ride 'chair' on ' Cousin Alan's' Ural, a total death trap. 2 or 3 inches of loose in the sidecar mountings and 18" apehangers. An old door and an armchair lashed to the ill fitted sidecar chassis. Interesting..............

Re: Bikes nicked overnight from ABR Festival 2019

I don't want to sound clever, If I had my bike nicked I would be utterly gutted, but there is a very good and cheap idea that might help and costs peanuts. Cheap rape alarms on Ebay ( from about £1.99) come with a lanyard which when pulled out sets off the 120db alarm, several of these , clipped aro...

Re: Lane Closed Due To Rave .

Oh the the fun of being stopped and searched, you were lucky not to have a torch checking your arse out. I was working at a ( licenced) festival near where I live and so went home at night. As it was pouring down with rain lots of people were asking me to get them Rizlas, as everything on site was s...
