  1. i got a tom tom xl a couple of years ago from here http://www.totalpda.co.uk/TomTom/TomTom-ONE-v2-EU.8245.html?gclid=CLizqP3nv6kCFYJO4QodtVTYaQ it only came with uk maps but its got an sd card slot so i bought europe for £14 off ebay and last year when we went to turkey i bought the Turkey card from the tom tom website
  2. advertise it on here http://www.pistonheads.com/ its free and i had more calls from here when i advertised my Blade than ebay or motorcycle news.
  3. thats the stuff you use to make your bike shine not the eastern european countrymen,just wondering what people use on their bikes,many years ago i used to use Autoglym http://www.amazon.co.uk/AutoGlym-Super-Resin-Polish-500ml/dp/B0011E06XA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1308240234&sr=8-3 but i didnt like the fact it used to leave chalky residue in the cracks and crevices so i started using Motrax purple helmet polish http://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/81/2706 trouble is Motrax have gone t*ts up and its getting difficult to get hold of without paying through the nose what with postage and whatever so i need some suggestions.Been thinking about using a clay bar on the Ducati just like the Max power adplescents use like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Meguiars-Quik-Detailing-System-Starter/dp/B0039O2GJM

  5. trouble with it is that because its so expensive,people dont use enough.wouldnt like to think its costing me £6.50 every time i wash my bike,but I usually just empty a litre of diluted janitol over my bike and it comes up like a new pin for 38p.its also good in the kitchen and bathroom.
  6. just thought i would share a little secret.i use this http://www.cromwell.co.uk/DEB7101113G to clean my bike, ive used it for over 30 years and its never caused any problems.just dilute it down spray it on then rinse it off with a hosepipe.I usually dilute it down about 8 parts water to 1 part janitol or i weight 125 grammes into a trigger spray bottle then make it up to a litre. funny thing is it looks smells and performs exactly like this but it works out at about 38p a litre. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_categoryId_228374_productId_160859_langId_-1?cm_mmc=Shopping-_-Google%20Product%20Search-_-Bike+Maintenance+&+Tools%2FBike+Cleaning-_-Muc+Off+Trigger+Bike+Spray+1+litre&source=shopping
  7. if you watch again you will see the cars already moving when the bike comes over the brow of the hill so tbh you cant really blame the car driver, i would be more likely to say the bike rider should have seen the sign (the yellow diamond,presume it means theres a junction) and backed off a bit. (gets ready for backlash)

  9. theres a test of the TL1000 v firestorm in the latest Fast bikes magazine http://www.fastbikesmag.com/2011/05/24/new-issue-out-now/ My experience of big twins is that theyre lumpy horrible things to ride round town but out in the sticks where it really matters absolutely awesome and i wouldnt consider going back to a 4 cylinder
  10. i started going about 18 months ago after i saw the photos from holiday and decided enough.After about 14 months i lost 5 stone (started at 16stone 10 and lowest was 11 stone 9 and now im concentrating on maintaining my weight around 11 stone 11/12 ish.
  11. that looks perfect just wonder what the centre hole measures My trailers wheels are smaller but theyre on a 100 pcd so im guessing its probably a standard size.The hole in my wheels measures 68mm,and seeing as these are designed to go on a trailer i would have thought you shouldnt have any trouble with them.If your not in any hurry i might be able to go to the store sometime next week and measure them for you.

  13. thanks for the warning, i always get mine from here http://www.sparkplugs.co.uk/
  14. just checked it its not 1.5 meter its 2 meters even better,looking in demon tweeks catalogue theyre £130,result. I also got a johnny waterproof top that should have been £54 for £5
  15. just got back from the BMF show.got some good bargains on offer especially on Motrax and Frank Thomas/BKS gear,probably cos theyve gone tits up.Saw loads of BKS Toseland rep leathers for £200,BKS gloves all £30,even them posh stingray ones.got to say though it seems to get smaller every year even though there were some bikes there this year,(emphasis on some)Got a Motrax branded English 1.5 meter chain and massive lock,thatcham approved for £30.think i better stay in for the rest of the month now to stop me spending any more money.
  16. well it took me a while but now ive figured out how to do it i can post some piccies from oulton.Difficult to decide which to post as i took about 600 but these are some that i like

  22. went to see this last night in 3d and its an awesome film.Guy Martins absolutely brilliant,especially the bit about his toes curling.well worth going to see even if your not a fan of the TT.
