Re: Hard shoulder penality

Sergeant Dixon would have said ‘Evening All’ clipped you round the ear and sent you on your way with a cheery smile and a knee bend. :D

Re: Karcher pressure washers

I don’t use the pressure washer on the bikes ever. I use a Muc Off type cleaner on a properly dirty bike (basically the Husky) and then use a hose. We do have decent mains pressure here so I do have that advantage. Otherwise just a high quality bike ‘soapy wash’ and rinse. If water pressure is low, ...

Re: Hard shoulder penality

That sounds like the people who drove a few yards up a bus lane in a jam to get to there office, where they would have had to cross the bus lane anyway.
Too much income at stake to have some common sense and say ok this time but....

Re: Hard shoulder penality

Sometimes these things are a bit perverse and maybe unnecessary. Surely a stern chat would have sufficed. Unless you were doing 50. I was in a massive jam on the M25 some years ago after a bridge jump suicide. We had been stationary for about 30 minutes and about 6 miles from the incident and the gi...

Re: Police and theives

Where does that leave the situation where the police can knock them off their bikes?

But surely money talks, to a certain extent.
But not if they would come last every comp.

Re: Never gonna buy a honda again

Ethanol in petrol may be a factor here. A 'fake green' measure that causes more harm than good. My KTM 950 SM was fine until ethanol cane along under cover of darkness. Left the tank about 75% full over winter in about 2010 as I do tend to have the odd sunny day winter ride but come March it was ba...

Re: Huawei in europe and goggle aps

The way my mind works is, you’re doing a monumental and expensive trip, why not just bite the bullet and buy (or borrow) a satnav? There’s a significant chance that it’s not going to “fook up” and spoil your trip and it leaves your phone available for what its designed for. I’m working on that idea...

Re: Never gonna buy a honda again

Sad to read under any circumstance but more so from a firm such as Honda. Hope you get a fair resolution soon. It can easily take more than 6 months for a fault to manifest itself, particularly with our weather and road condition extremes. I think Triumph did the same thing with their polished engin...
