Re: London Emission Zone

Hmm, I've just got my 2001 1150GS single spark sorted with literally no problems. Proper letter from BMW saying it's Euro1 compliant and emits 0.03g/km NOx, scanned and forwarded to TFL via their web link, scan back from TFL saying fine and they'll update their records. Stunned to be honest; there m...

Puffin Hunt...

Just back from 2 weeks in Greater Scotland seeking puffins... Up the west coast sort of, Warwickshire to Moffat / Buccleuch Arms, one of John Fergusson's scenic routes to Shiel Bridge - Glen Coe simply overrun with tourists - every flat space coated with people milling about, and drivers who seemed ...

Re: Turning & Beeping

Er, and trying to reply to yours, I have three versions stuck in my outbox although it said at the time they'd been sent... Have they turned up? J

Re: Who changes their own tyres?

I do, sort of. Key driver being I'm quite anal and prefer to have tyres balanced (I have 40g or something on the rear of the GS as standard :lol: ); and it's now 30 miles to the nearest place which will balance them. So Dave the roving tyre man takes them off and puts them back on for me for a fiver...

Re: Turning & Beeping

I have a Signalminder self-canceller fitted to the 1150GS and I have a spare off my 1150RS if you're interested. Does other clever stuff too. Straight replacement for the stock relay, fit and forget.

Re: Engine rebuild,

Hi, I'm sure Andrew Sexton in Hook Norton could do it; he's been around beemers for years. Old school so no email or website; workshop is 01608 730111.

Re: London Emission Zone

My 2001 1150GS (single spark) was previously out of scope, is now in scope. So no more biking to the City on tube strike days. And from 25 Oct 2021 no more biking or even motoring to London at all... Complete joke.

Shortest ever Scottish Trip?

Had planned to revisit Knoydart & environs, starting Tuesday. Got as far as The Buccleugh in Moffat (highly recommended btw), frantic emails from work, business in crisis. Weds morning spent on phone, then out of The Buccleugh turm right for the M74 South rather than L for a dander North. Trip h...

Re: Annoying Fluid Leak...

Yay, getting there and I'm not going insane... Warks to Brum to London & back to Warks this week, all good seemingly. Did the paper thing overnight and I have my leak back, but it's definitely coming off the bottom of the shock mounting and the base of the shock just below the adjuster is wet. S...
