    Posters such as these seem to be able to grasp how to sign cheques to
    pay those enlisted to work on their various bikes, but dont really seem
    to have much of clue if they have to get their own hands dirty (TOG
    suggests cam chain must be split to remove cam from XS650, and Wegg
    asserts that original Truimph Daytona had single carb

    I wonder if the fuckwit-troll Ken knows anything about the Norton
    Navigator :)

    Mind you he's in my k/f so I am not likely to see any replies.

    Wegg means he had to pay someone who knew how, to sort his brake

    Interesting how one of you fuckwits come out with some utter bollocks,
    and the rest of you follow him like the good little sheep you all seem
    to be.................baaaaaaaaaaa

    I'd love to ay that I had been out for a ride on one of my Classic bikes
    today but I am not sure you would agree that the GS500 is even old
    enough to be considered is a classic (although it will be one day) and I
    haven't been out yet today either but I will tomorrow.

    I started my Bloo GS today and ran it for a bit while I made a cup of
    tea, just to scatter the more mobile wildlife that have made it their
    home really.

    Mine sort of started and sat there chugging more or less happily to
    itself for a minute or two so I turned it off and walked away. Quit
    when you are ahead, a good motto that one.

  11. I was looking at the new (or current) model Tiger in Carl Rosner's

    Only 7k new, with all the luggage and everything.....

    3k offer on the Trophy. Bloody tempting.

    True, but also depressing should I ever have the urge for a new bike.
    The s/h value of mine will be so small.

    It goes against everything that I stand for to run a bike engine and not
    have the wheels turn, so I was forced to take it shopping.

    Amazing innit, it is over 50 miles going to Tescos but less than coming
    10 back. I can't work it out, it should have been nearer 80.

    I am tempted to offer a reward, something on the lines of "the Right and
    Proper Way for a Motorcyclist to Behave" but I am not the KotL so I

    I opened the garage and had a smoke while pondering how lucky I was to
    own two lovely driveway ornaments. Then I looked at the sky and thought
    that it might rain next week, so I threw all thoughts of viewing them in
    the sunshine on the driveway out of my head. I then got in my car and
    went to see my mum and regaled her with stories about how wonderful it
    is to be a biker.

    I went all the way from Bedford to Newcastle just for a shag, on a
    number of occasions.

    When I was 15 I rode my bicyle from Bedford to Leicester for a shag with
    my then girlfriend, who'd moved from our village to up there. I got to
    her house and almost instantly fell asleep until her parents came home
    about 15 hours later. I woke up and realised it was time to start
    heading home again, so jumped on my bike and left.
