  5. Had to fit a window mech to a friends car. 20 odd year old rivet gun gave up, tried to blame the rabbits but Mandi weren't having it. Finished the job and nipped over lowestoft to get its replacement, obviously took a longer way home. TDM has been stuck in the shed for almost 3 months but still started on the button. As for weather forecasts I live on the coast, no one get it right.

  11. The bloke at the end of our street, he’s waited till the hottest part of the day when the sun is directly over him to start laying edging bricks on his neighbors garden, X copper so what should I expect, it’s 28 in the shade he’s had that part of the garden in the shade all morning and now starts working in it, thick BASTARD.

  15. I had to collect my son from a wedding reception in Bristol to take him camping. No idea which bit I was in, but it was some sort of hotel and I could see the famous suspension bridge very close by which everyone said I should drive over as it was the best way to get to Devon. So I managed to get onto the thing. No sod had bothered to tell me you had to pay to cross it and did I have the right money, did I buggery. Me and my young son trying to find the right change amongst the darkest recesses of my car and camping gear with a queue behind me. I was also very surprised at how narrow the bridge is when you are actually on it. edit. Did a youtube search to remind myself what it was like.

  16. I did a pub relief manager job in Bristol in a previous life. Can't remember where exactly, maybe southwest. Anyway it was a bit of an eye opener. Family had conjunctivitis and had to be off the premises. Apparently the relief guy before me had a one armed bandit nicked, and an old clock off the wall. An old guy from across the road was telling me his hard luck story about his wife having died, trying for a free sympathy pint. He didn't know me very well Later on one of the barmaids told me that they used to see him out of the bedroom window beating the shit out of her. Yes. Bristol. There last time I went there was a couple of years ago and stayed in a flat over my mate's son in law's shop. Pretty central as we walked everywhere. A great real ale pub across the road run by biker, and some idiot upset the HA there and took a pretty spectacular kicking. To be fair, he was a bit of an idiot. Of course the place emptied, the CCTV tapes disappeared before the cops turned up. Yes, Bristol. I quite liked it!

  21. I forgot to say the other day, but when I was at the bikes show in Peterborough I watched some speedway track action. Loved the loud rorty big engined bikes throwing themselves round the track, very exciting to watch, they really are lunatics, but the new electric speedway bikes........ Speed was fine, very quick, but bugger me, the sound is the same as when you pull back one of those cars a few times before letting it go, no atmosphere at all.

  22. Fuckin rabbits, shitting machines. I know what comes out is small but the quantity and locations the prob. Why can't they dump in one area rather than where ever they are at the time.

  28. It turned into a bit of a monster in the end, he didn't want to spend all his time just taking items in and just sending them back out again . His real love is making one-off parts for overland bikes so he closed it in the end. He let me go long before the end which pissed me off a bit as he didn't really give me a reason. I still sold some stuff for him on a casual basis about a year after but I haven't seen him for a long time now. He's a really nice guy, a good engineer and an ace rider but I've no idea what he's up to now as I don't do any social media.

  34. Yes, you say swift updates, I say they get it wrong, look out the window and change it at the last minute to be closer to what they can actually see. This is why I have gone out so many times on a promised totally dry day only to have to put my waterproofs on a few hours later. As far as I have been able to tell, the only thing they get right almost every time is the predicted temperature.

  43. Nope, stuck with the same plan. Wait until there’s stock in the UK come spring, by which time I’ll have cash for all the spare bits I want to lob on to the CRF. As I say, no point grabbing something I can’t use because the lanes will be closed and no point getting something large because it’ll sit in the garage unused. Maybe if touring Europe was a reasonable idea I could consider something larger, but with a pair of dogs and no one left at home to look after them we won’t be doing that for a number of years (I’d never put them in a kennels). Happy to wait, pretty sure the 300 Rally will tick most of my boxes.

  44. No.....he's owned it for 11 years: https://www.whois.com/whois/zenoverland.com So like most setups in this market sector it's going nowhere fast. Virtually all the Adv writers/adventurers/tour companies have lacklustre home made sites. The only one I've ever seen that I'd class as professional and fit for purpose is Rawhyde.
