Re: It pays to shop around

When shopping around for Ins on my CRF1000L I put in Zero for voluntary excess to see what would happen. The premium went down a fair bit. So I tried it on some other sites & the same happened. No more £250 voluntary excess.

Re: NC500

Heard the Bently club were taking over 100 Bentlys round last weekend. They'd fill up every passing place!
Loads of mobile homes, cyclists & walkers.
Hope you get the weather. Enjoy.

Re: Fueling problems. Cutting out

Mate put an iridium plug in his 650 & it cut out every time he slowed for passing places. Put the original plug back in & she ran as sweet as a nut.

Re: Cheeky (paid!) weekend solo trip in the Highlands

Aye, loads of the new UK-Euro floating about now.

The rain hit for the trip home. Wouldn't be Scotland without it. And the zip went on my Spada waterproof jacket too.
