Re: Digital bridge camera info please

Working for Motorola when camera phones first came out I loved this new feature, though it took some years before picture quality was really good enough, around 2008. I had already been through the SLR phase but lost the enthusiasm to carry all the gear and had switched to a compact. The point being...

Re: Heated waistcoat

My thoughts and findings on the subject:

Gerbing plug-in for the motorbike, and USB type for off.

Note that the cheap ones use quite small heating elements spaced out, so not as good, not surprisingly.

Thank you for the comments, and sorry to mention the "H" word Richard on your "honeymoon" or whatever you are up to :) Brehnden I say I'm from Southampton but live enough miles out of it not to be, and was born in Winchester, so eternally confused culturally.

Re: A new problem has appeared.

I've done a lot of miles this year and the shear ignorance and lack of respect from other road users is quite something. To hear the same on this forum is not surprising but allows me to form my own opinion of some of you in reverse ;)

Re: Bmw new no maintemce chain

Some years back I experimented with different chain oiling methods. Proper chain lube, a drip feed oil system, and simple WD40. All methods gave identical (o-ring) chain and sprocket life, and not surprisingly WD-40 was a hell of a lot cleaner. This is trail riding with quite a bit of road mixed in,...

Re: Clutch help

In my experience a significant amount of clutch issues are caused by the cable. Anything apart from a fresh OEM cable will not work properly, the usual problem of not being able to select neutral easily as the clutch is not releasing correctly. And/or less than smooth operation.

Re: Anyone heard from Garyboy?

Ah I did not appreciate Wales is still tightly locked-down, but looking better for Monday then? A 5 mile radius would be quite stifling and is not much on a bike that's for sure, I can see why you are fed up.... During our lock-down my daily bike ride kept me sane, we were officially allowed an hour...
