Re: New Tenere 700

Is the sticker price really that important? Surely in today's World it is 'affordability' that shifts new bikes out of their shipping crates Eh?, how can you seperate the 2 things?, any finance will be proportional to sticker price, they are inextricably linked Yes they are inextricably linked but ...

Surely in today's World it is 'affordability' that shifts new bikes out of their shipping crates because (over the long-term) rental income is far more lucrative to a manufacturer than a small one off profit for an outright sale.

Re: Put a real dampener on my holiday.

Condolences to you regarding your mate's untimely death and also for the memories it brings back about your own Dad's passing. Increasingly when looking at holidays, bike trips, walking trips etc etc I'm adopting the mindset of "if not now then when?" because one day we ain't going to feel up to it....

I read somewhere that, in an emergency, ANY oil is better than no oil, in an engine. I certainly wouldn't use sunflower oil, of course, as I prefer vegetable oil :lol: I know you were only joking but never ever ever mix vegetable oil with mineral oil, a process called polymerisation takes place whi...

Re: The right to repair

You and I are not a million miles apart in our thinking Dave 8-) . My Wife and I combined do less than 15k miles a year, for the last 7 years my van ran on waste veg oil/biodiesel until it finally became terminal (it was made last century) and was replaced with a van with a dpf. My Wife does 6k mile...

Re: The right to repair

Electric cars seem to be the future but not Tesla. The VW chief recently vowed to make a Tesla beating car at half the cost. I’m pretty sure with their economies of scale, that will happen.
