Boxer Cup boots

Must be 20 years old now? A few character marks acquired over the years. I didn’t wear them a great deal back in the day as they are quite a narrow fit and not so comfortable for my plates of meat. In the blue and white colours with white lining that has yellowed slightly over the years. Obviously p...

Re: Mamola replica front brake lines.

Mine have not been "pinned" for the 5 years or so they've been above the top yoke, they don't move. If I drop the bike the bar may rotate and save breaking a lever still allowing me to ride it home. Just do the clamp screws up tight. As you kindly advised me just over 2 years ago John whe...

Re: Be careful what you wish for

That’s good mileage there John. I’m not convinced newer cars could make that mileage. Because electronics. Years ago it was rust that killed cars, just before the engines wore out. Reading across a few car forums, support for the wiggly amps box of tricks as fitted on modern cars may not be around l...

Re: Sports or touring?

In that case get one bought ASAP. Enjoy it for the time being and sell it on once you have had your fill. If you buy right then you won’t lose much, if at all, when you sell it on.
Box ticked, itch scratched! I’m sure you will enjoy it.

Re: Sports or touring?

All good points above. I agree that a newer model would be better in many ways. I have my bars above the yoke and fitted a peg lowering kit. Taller screen too. Using the Ventura rack and soft throw over panniers I’m good to go touring/camping for weeks in comfort. As the years roll on I now notice t...

Re: Another prang....

My God, that sounds terrifying. What a total dick that driver is, not to come and make sure you are ok. Apart from shock he would’ve been unharmed sat in his cab. In the movies the rider would lay the bike on its side, slide under the trailer before coming upright again shouting ‘Yehaaa!’ Heal fast ...

Re: Say hello to Max ......

What a handsome chap. I hope he will be a great companion for you Steve. I hope he mixes in nicely with your other cat.
Now then, we only have your word about that photo not being yours. Maybe you just wanted to have a Boxertrix DDP theme bedroom? :wink:

Re: Wanted: Kitten

Very sad to read that Steve. Absolutely right what you said about the house/home.
Some little kitten will be lucky soon. Stick a pic up when that happens!

Re: STAINTUNE CLOSE THEIR DOORS

I recently received a stainless manifold for a car from Supersprint in Italy. The guy told me they were about to close for 10 days - government orders. So you might get a reply come April 6 unless the shutdown is extended which is more than likely.

Re: Told to Self Isolate 15:30 Mon 16th March

Get well fast BC-R. I don’t think I have ever had the flu proper, but have certainly had stinking bad colds that laid me out and that was bad enough. No reported cases yet near me (BBC website) so I’m out for a coffee whilst I can. Then stare at empty shelves in Sainsbury’s before more self isolatio...

Re: "Is it Spring Yet?"

Glad all is well if a little stressful. Talk here is of the army on the street. Maybe London first? Will they have powers of arrest or are they meant to scare us? With such a fluid situation I can’t second guess what will happen and reading of it lasting into next year it’s going to be unbearable. O...

Re: "Is it Spring Yet?"

It was a lovely day today wasn’t it! Sounds like a nice ride Humbug. I had thought it would be great for a ride too, but I need to get a new battery sorted first. Spring is about here and I am more than eager to be back on the road. A few more weeks should see some heat from the sun making all the d...

Re: RAPID BIKE EVO

Isn’t the gizmo (select from the handful available) inserted by using the bikes connectors? So you can only use one. Unless you want to break out the soldering iron!
Ah, just realised that’s on the 1100 and you asked on a 1200. No idea on the 1200 sorry.

Re: Norton no more

Along similar lines is the recent demise of a well known independent Yorkshire garage specialising in Porsches. Many guys lost huge sums of money through the garage, much of it was fraudulent. The warnings on the web were there but not on the popular sites. That was due to the sites worrying about b...
