Re: EU. In or out?

Rory Stewart for PM--he has a brain and is an ex diplomat etc--but the Tories NEVER vote for the best qualified person on principle--so it will be Boris--the Trump clone!

Re: KTM 990 NOx value

I met a guy at the Thetford Safari that is going to have his elderly Minsk two smoke tested privately. He reckons its worth the punt because although it smokes like a chimney its in such a low state of tune that its NOx emissions should be very low! To be honest in general its probably worth a priva...

Re: Hotel bill

Grandma and Grandpa were visiting their kids overnight. When Grandpa found a bottle of Viagra in his son’s medicine cabinet, he asked about using one of the pills. The son said: “I don’t think you should take one Dad, they’re very strong and very expensive.” “How much?” asked Grandpa. “$10.00 a pill...

Re: The right to repair

Electric milk floats worked back in the day--and were simple. I hear that if a Tesla has a significant crash then the fire brigade have special hydraulic "scissors" to sever the battery cables. The vehicle has then to be left in an open space for a couple of days just to make sure it doesn't suddenl...

Re: The right to repair

WHY DON'T PEOPLE GET IT ---well to wheel that is----if you think driving an electric vehicle is green?--then think again.

Re: Officially old?

get a 1980s G/S--or a transalp etc--totally agree. They have all got lardy--but lets face it only a very small percentage see dirt. Now the Enfield Himalayan is going in the right direction , as is the Honda CRF 250 rally

Re: Himalayan Compass?????

If its a magnetic compass--on a metal bike then its worse than useless anyway. Now if it relied on GPS signals thats a different matter--buy a Garmin Montana and set the screen if you really need one. Joking aside it would be much better if it were removable(but locked in place) so that you could wa...

Re: Unlimited Mileage Motorcycle Insurance

if its for pleasure and domestic how do they know what you've covered?--as far as I know the only record is on the annual MOT and thats iffy--especially if you have a speedo change--just settle on 10k and carry on!!--unless I'm missing something here. You are being asked to look into the future base...
