Re: Can I join in?

The exhaust has the useful trait of falling off when bashed. Or, occasionally, when you change into second gear.

I'll be fixing that tomorrow

Re: Can I join in?

I've been on t'internet for long enough to be used to most types of people and unsuitability is kind of my middle name. I drove to the Azerbaijan border and back in a petrol 1.6 Daihatsu that started overheating before we left London and Marrakech in an escort that ate its clutch in the hope it woul...

Re: Can I join in?

And the sofa issue due to a chest infection rather than laziness :-p I'm going to try and get the air filter off today to clean, see if that sorts the idling issue. If not I'll have to clean out the carb. Can't get tyres until back at work next week - our neighbours are difficult and if they try to ...

Re: Can I join in?

Me too. ive never ridden off road so want to try it out. If I enjoy it I'll look at taking it further but buying a new bike for something I may hate is a big risk :) Tbh before coming here I was reading about a chap that used an etz250 for the MCC long distance trials.

Re: Can I join in?

Everyone I know that's had one, whilst unable to defend it, does hold an amount of love for it. The electronic ignition will have to wait for the money fairies to come again, in the meantime my priority is tyres. If I'm ever well enough again to get off the sofa. The exhaust is already banged up and...

I love a bit of sarcasm of an evening.

Re: Motorcycle Servicing/Repairs & MOT stations

If you need someone a little further north Mac Motorcycles in Tooting for those London based. I've taken bikes there for 10 years or so and always found them reasonabley well priced. Always very down to earth, do MOTs and willing to be a touch creative if needed. Two mechanics there, Gary being my m...
