Re: Self Indulgence .....

well now at 6.5 stone lost :)

main target is 15st 10lbs got about 1.5stone or so to go. Reason for the initial target is it takes me from the title of "obese" (yuck) to merely "overweight"

At that point I'll decide if I want to stay there or carry on to about 13.5 stone

... X3 3.0SD MSport

Previous owner of my X3 had done a horrible rattle can job on the alloys, mate of mine who does my MoT's said he could get them done properly in whatever colour I wanted. Figured I'd go for graphite grey (hopefully wont show the dirt easily :) )

Very pleased with the results!

Re: Richard Joyce

Many thanks all - am getting there slowly, tired a lot of the time but start cardiac rehab in a couple of weeks which'll give me goals to achieve. Whilst I wouldn't be so dramatic as saying I was at 'death's door' it really has made me realise what's important in this life. It was that mindset that...

Re: Back End Buchhie (Moffat)

I have 6 days annual leave left and I'd mentioned I was going to take it in October, my colleague said she was taking time off too for a wedding. I have a feeling she said the 19th (grrrrr) …… if it isn't I may well attend Chris. Otherwise my trip to Moffat will be another weekend in October. At the...

Re: Bonding with the K1

Another qwerky bmw collectable. For authenticity, the qwerkiest of all bmw`s arguably is THE "Bond" one with the Boxer engine. Both bikes a sound investment. Well done you. It looks in very good fettle too. Hardly a sports tourer though, Those panniers. WTF? Enjoy. Chris I'm loving it Chr...

Re: Too quiet!

Having recently taken ownership of a low mileage 2001 r1100s and driven a couple of hundred miles, I have to say am so far over the moon. However one annoying thing is the almost sewing machine quietness from the twin pipes. I thought remus did a system for this bike but can find nothing online (pr...

Bonding with the K1

Been using the K1 quite a bit recently …. and I love it. Despite its 30 years of age I find it surprisingly modern riding, comfy, good brakes, good handling with a surprising turn of speed. I find the 16 v engine needs more revs than the old 8 valve motor to get it in the flow but once she does it's...
