Re: Getting my bike down to Folkestone from Scotland

I rode one in Europe last year. Beautiful bike. Power everywhere and a lot of it too 8-) . The only thing I didn't like was the vibes through the seat but that might have been unique to the bike I rode :?.

Re: EU. In or out?

We send about £13bn a year to the EU. They send us back £5.5 bn a year (2017) So the cost to us of EU membership is £7.5 bn a year. That £7.5 bn a year gets us £274 bn a year in exports to the EU. It also guarantees another £342 bn a year in sales made to non-EU countries via trade deals negotiated...

Re: EU. In or out?

I get annual Worldwide Travel Insurance with my bank account with emergency medical cover up to £10 million....yes, £10 million....for £27 a month. Plus a few other things as well.

Re: Wheels and tubes ..

I agree that Mousses are not suitable for extended road use as they can get too hot and disintegrate. They are probably also illegal. I ran mousses in my enduro bikes for years and always put a false valve over the the tube hole for MOT purposes. I'm not being a clever dick but I never had any probl...

Re: EU. In or out?

I'm going to take a wild guess that all 26 points are utter crap - but I am going to look it up and see if there is even an ounce of fact there - something you should do before reposting anything like this (that's how fake news works, gaining validity through reporting). Fair enough. If it's crap t...

Re: EU. In or out?

We had an interesting discussion in the pub last night about a second referendum. Someone said that we shouldn't have one because the majority voted OUT and it would be undemocratic to have another vote. But someone else pointed out that normally when you vote you usually get what you voted for stra...
