Re: ABS-ectomy

ABS-ectomy. So as I have now got the dreaded ABS problem, which can't be fixed apparently, I am considering having the system taken out. I have seen that lots of owners have already done this but I have a question :- When you went back to your insurers to declare a 'modification', what reaction did...

Re: Cheap private plate.

£249,that's a fair price. Will consider changing my name to H18 :twisted: Well, we're very lucky here in Blighty, as a name change is as simple as telling folk 'from this date on, I wish to be known by the name.....' - job done, no deed-poll nonsense, it's that simple.

Re: Trip weather ..

Only issue is....their weather! :) XCWeather is what I normally use for forecasts, that tells me next Wed has quite a bit of rain about the further north I go, Weathercast says it's going to be fine!
