Re: Brackley bike show

Went about 3 or 4 years ago. Jolly well organised and a damn good day out. Will try and make a point of going again this year.

Re: Mpg

I read that Triumph claim 57mpg for the Explorer at 55mph. Now I ride quite a bit faster than that, and do like to have a little play out on the open road. I consider myself pretty light on the throttle, and I'm currently getting 56.1mpg according to the on board computer. Off to Europe next month, ...

Re: Anyone tried one of these Pac Safes?

Is it just a jacket and helmet you want to secure? I have used a chain to do this. Put the jacket on the seat with the front upwards. The chain goes through the eye slot of the helmet (only works for full face helmets), then one end goes down each sleeve of the jacket and lock the ends together thr...

Re: Israel Vrs Palastine.......

Like all disputes over the centuries, either religion or greed, or a combination of the two. All is fair game in the eyes of the aggressor in the pursuit of both, and the chance of real religious harmony and world population equality, sadly isn't about to be realised anytime soon. Sad as these thing...

Until someone else comes up with something better that gets airtime on mainstream TV, I'm quite happy to watch Henry. So until then, keep em coming Henry.

Re: Any jokes?

Nothing funny about that. It's just parked up on the Somerset levels in readiness for next February, so the guy can get to work.

Nor is it How far you go, how fast you do it, what terrain you ride on or what accommodation you stay in. As Harv says, if you think it's an adventure, then it is an adventure. Welcome.

Scam emails

Just received an email from a friend claiming to be stuck in a hotel in the Ukraine having had all their luggage stolen and leaving no way of settling the bill, and requesting money be wired out to them. They're not in the Ukraine, and I didn't fall for it for one minute. This may be an old one, jus...

Re: Driverless cars?

Trying to get my head round the concept of being a pillion on a riderless bike. I guess you could have two pillions. More time for sightseeing and picture taking without the need to stop at every vista I suppose. What will they think of next to lessen the enjoyment of manhood? It wouldn't surprise m...
