Re: Reg plate light

Many thanks, Dave. I'll tackle the problem tomorrow or Tuesday and confirm if you're correct in diagnosis.

Cheers.

Reg plate light

It seems that having a non-working reg plate light is now an MoT fail (as of this year). Mine (R12S) hasn't worked for some time and it isn't the bulb. I haven't yet found a good wiring diagram online to make tracing the fault easier. As far as I can see from a first quick look, the wires from the l...

William Dunlop

Just seen the very sad news that William Dunlop has been killed at the Skerries 100. Headline is "motorcycle racer Dunlop killed", and I immediately assumed Michael, since he always look on the very limit.

Re: Dreaded insurance

I stayed with Bennetts again this year. £350 for two bikes, but that includes a couple of extras, such as RAC breakdown, legal, and leathers & helmet. The minimum, without extras would have been £299 plus £20 arrangement fee. I'll probably do a meerkat search this year - I usually do a change of...

Re: GDPR Fatigue

I thought that you had to 'opt in' & by not replying you were declining the offer to receive further info, have I got this wrong? Some emails, rightly or wrongly, are saying that I don't need to do anything to continue receiving their "service" (junk mail?). I went on the RSPB forum y...

GDPR Fatigue

Apart from one lucky bloke on here who, because of GDPR, seems to have inherited a small wine cellar from BA, is anyone else getting mightily fatigued by GDPR? It started with a drip - RSPB, several months ago, asking me to say "yes" to receiving marketing and event information from them (...

Re: Dont think I'm a boxer person

That's a shame, but it wouldn't do if we all liked the same things. Most of why you don't like big twins is exactly why I love them. I've only had one four-pot (a V-4) and it was definitely way too many pots for me, so I didn't keep it long. I even find my Tiger 800 triple a bit revvy & buzzy. S...

Re: p xing

I hate selling or buying privately, and just don't want to go through the hassle any more - I'm with Al on that one. I still have my R1200S because I couldn't get an acceptable px deal, and I couldn't face selling it privately. But I got a very good deal when I bought my Tiger 800 from a dealer (pai...

Re: MotoGP - no spoiler

"a perverse glee"

That's a good phrase. Sums up the mix of "oh ffs" and "this'll be a hell of a race now" I felt at the start.

Re: MotoGP - no spoiler

Aye, certainly controversial and another pathetic performance from race control. It was Amateur, if I was a sponsor I would be demanding that race control resign. Honestly it was cringe worthy. Mike Web is clueless. He should go, he also should go on a diet cos he is ruining the reputation of the t...

MotoGP - no spoiler

Well it had everything! Controversy (lots of), great racing, manic racing, penalties (all against the same racer), and a well-deserved win. Oh, and more controversy. I thought it was brilliant, memorable, edge of the seat, swear at the screen, not-good-for-the-blood-pressure stuff, and fist-pump jum...

Re: Anyone here into watches

I have a nephew who was fascinated by watches when he was a child. He used to blag old watches from his parents and friends and try to repair them, usually successfully. When he left school, he went into IT for about 15 years and ran his own web design company. However, he didn't feel he was doing s...

Re: Carol Nash to Bennetts after 4 years with Carol Nash

Agree with most (all?) of what's been said. I resigned myself to changing bike & car insurer every two years, though I think I'm in my third or fourth year with Bennetts because they were still competitive. I swapped car insurance provider (again) this year, and was pleasantly surprised that the...

6 miles walking on snow? You must’ve got lost then! :lol: You have put me to shame. I try and do similar most days but no matter what I wear I still get cold so I’ve been frequenting the coffee shops during this ‘beast’ time. Normal rountine again this week ... To be fair, it wasn't as cold as it l...
