Re: helmet removal at filling staions

If anyone wants to experience the being hollered at over the tanoy by a shouty bloke who's assumed you're a thief try Morrisons of Leominster, Herefordshire. They won't let down 👍 What makes you think he's assumed you're a thief ? That seems an assumption in itself. I think you've assumed I've made...

Re: helmet removal at filling staions

It might be their place their rules etc, but when it blasts out of the loudspeakers 'oi you! The knobber on the bike who can't even afford a car. Take that hat off now as you're obviously going to do a runner without paying' (well that's how seem to translate it :D ) I just clear off somewhere else ...

Re: Enduro style jackets or textiles

12 xl !! :o :o And I thought I was 'big boned'
How about Klim??
Being an American brand their stuff is always on the generous side, and was able to kid myself I'd shrunk a bit when I was able to lose an X before the L on the label :D

Also well designed and waterproof which is a first for me 👍

Re: hot grips wire?

Having recently fitted some Oxford heated grips onto some Renthal bars it beats me how anyone finds room to fit tape etc. between the two??
The bars had to be sanded smooth first to have any chance of getting them on, and even then it still took a lot of force!!

Re: Online Shopping Regret?

Flash looking Chinese adjustable brake and clutch levers for my Tracer Every time I have to use the front brake enthusiastically now I'm almost waiting for the (in my imagination) crappy Areo bar like fake aluminium to snap launching me into the reason I had to stop a bit quick!! So am putting the ...

Re: CRF250L .... Opinions?????

There are a lot of people on here with much more experience of these bike's who can give far better info on them than I can. But would say it might be best not to make a decision after a very short test ride. It took me quite a few hundered miles to stop thinking I'd made a big mistake and lumbered ...

Re: hot grips wire?

Always had the same thing going on
Now think of the right one as being warmer than the left one, rather than the left one colder than the right one so happy! :D

Re: Honda 450L

I really fancied one of these when they were announced, hoping it would replace my TTR600, CRF250X and possibly Tracer too - bit of a make life simpler/more room in the garage job. Having now sat on the rock hard perch miles from the floor in Fowlers last weekend am now glad the price put me right o...
