Re: Sad news

Hi there, this is Helena, one of Mick’s daughters. Thank you for the kind words about my Dad. It’s so lovely to know that so many people thought so well of him. Dad passed peacefully at home surrounded by his closest family. We would love for you all to join us if possible, and if his cortège could ...

Re: Sunday 5th November

Great to see you all and thanks to Reg for chauffeuring. For me it felt a little like winding the years back to the early days of Boxertrix, although now my bike has gone! And I can no longer partake in the lardfest that is a “Jacks breakfast”
The company made up for that. Thanks again chaps.

The time has arrived

Time to hang up the helmet and leathers for good, not by choice either. I was diagnosed with Cancer in Dec 16 and its progression has been quite rapid. I did manage to get out on it for a couple of quick blasts earlier on in the year, but now it is obvious to me that I am neither fit enough or stron...

Doesn't look like there's anything there that you couldn't cobble together for a few beer tokens from your local hardware store!!

I don't understand anyone skimping on oil. It's the life blood of the engine, and it's most important component ffs. It only get's changed once, maybe twice a year, but yet people still go online and buy the cheap recycled aviation stuff. Not worth it. Buy a good quality branded oil, so you know wh...

Quite straight forward in the end, 12 wires all black from the alarm, but easy to pair up in the loom. Just took a couple of hours and a few crimps.

Alarm woes

After 15 years of faultless service, my Spyball patriot has expired and refuses to sound the alarm and disarm the immobiliser with either key fobs. The batteries are only 12 months old (the last ones lasted 14 years) so the assumption is that the unit has failed. I can however disarm it by using the...

I'll be fascinated to see how it all turns out. Luckily our trusty Passat diesel predates the emissions thing, and you can bet that the worlds politicians will milk it for all the fines they can levy. But I do wonder how many people buy a car on the official statistics? Please tell me most people r...

Cheers Al.
The ones I have "found" in our stores are 140mm deep but 125mm OD,
