Ramasis were half the cost of what C Nash quoted me - methinks it's a bloody lottery It's actually a casino...the 'house' (underwriters) are taking your bet that you will have an accident where the claim will exceed the premium, plus whatever they can gain from investing the cash. Underwriters spre...

Re: Old Fashioned Fuel Injection

It concluded: "Hands down, this the best four-stroke trail bike ever to come out of Japan." Guess what....after all these years, I reckon that statement is still...
