FOAK: Planning permission
OK, so if I wanted to do something *really* stupid, what are the odds of 1) Getting a mortgage to buy 2 acres of arable land [1] 2) Getting planning permission to build on said land.[2] [1] I could probably do about 60% LTV [2] Arable it may be, but it's bang in the middle of a village. -- Catman MIB#14 SK... 7 Jun 2010 15:33
Forgive me father, for I have very nearly sinned
At work we broke a pretty decent TDM900 this week because it had far too many miles for our showroom and a rattly engine[1]. While I was checking out the array of parts taken from it I noticed some rather good handguards sitting there, complete with Touratech branded extension spoilers. I whipped them into the show... 9 Jun 2010 10:55
Riding in shorts
I have just got back from a short ride, apart from my helmet I was only wearing a tee shirt, short and trainers. I am sure that some here will get all smug and think that this is irresponsible, dangerous and stupid because it's so dangerous. The fact is that I often ride like that when it's hot because I enjoy it. ... 8 Jun 2010 09:14

Friday Funny - Late, and long
And if it's a ginge, the whingeing poms can just FRO. Douglas Adams, of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" fame, gives an amazing insight into Australia - prepare yourself! Australia is a very confusing place, taking up a large amount of the bottom half of the planet. It is recognizable from orbit because o... 8 Jun 2010 20:40
Shameless plug: Bantam Sport FS Bidding on ebay seems a bit slow at the moment, 110 watchers and only 4 bids from 2 bidders. Am I being too optimistic ?. -- 03 GS500K2 76 Honda 400/4 project, 78 400/4 in black 68 Bantam D14/4 Sport (Classic) 06 Sukida SK50QT (Slanty eyed... 6 Jun 2010 19:31
Mates. Where would we be without them?
Champ wrote: [snip bad engine stuff] I've got the original road motor in my garage. So I rang up Gyp and Black Mike, and said, "Could you box/palette the engine while I figure out how to get it over to the Island". Which they did, and then Gyp took it 40 miles (admittedly on his way to where he was g... 12 Jun 2010 20:28
Mates. Where would we be without them?
Regular readers will know that my ZX10R has the engine from the race bike that nearly killed me two years ago. Whether that motor had got damaged in the crash (i.e. revved its nuts off upside down, or similar) was always an unknown, so the only way to find out was to fit it and run it. Which I did a couple of mon... 5 Jun 2010 03:54
FOAK: Breakdown Cover

The bikes are currently with Auntie so they're covered, but I suspect they won't be with Auntie for much longer based on recent posts about their premiums.

Paging Dodger
This month's Classic Bike has an article on a restored CBX. And a great feature in racers riding to their race meetings, including the all time boy own adventure story of Trevor Nation riding his GSX-R 750 to Spain and Portugal for two F1 races. This is the first copy of Classic Bike I've ever bought. I must ... 16 Jun 2010 18:53
