  1. Been out on the mighty Tlr this afternoon covered about 150 miles and whilst i was riding within my comfort zone there were one or two times i had to "have a word with myself" in particular whilst having some fun with a Porsche 911 on duel carriageway somewhere near Northampton/Kettering at....well lets just say i couldn't get my wrist any further back and the only other 2 cars on this vast expanse of tarmac decided that they needed both lanes squeaky arse time for me but being in front of the man and his "midlife crisis mobile" meant i was in charge of the situation rather than him although I lost as much speed as possible it wasn't enough my only choice was the 4ft gap between the 2 cars and the armco barrier . once back on the country lanes and mr mid life crisis a distant memory things were better traffic wise but i was pushing harder and harder with every mile that passed chin on the tank and my guardian angel on my shoulder the bike was on song i have never ever felt the need to go that hard on a ride out especially whilst out alone i made it home safe and sound this time ..next time i may not be so lucky stay safe out there people

  14. "buy cheap buy twice" that's what my old grandma always says Price is based on quality of the materials I suppose .... You've only got one head so buy the best you can afford I'm lucky enough to be in a position at the moment to be able to get a decent lid.

You work hard enough mate Cheers Dave it'd good someone appreciates me could you put your previous statement in writing to my boss please
  15. I agree Dave but as Bell isn't a "mainstream" brand in the UK I was concerned with the quality of the product which was really the reason behind my asking. Why do they cost so much ?

  17. The fit was great to be honest and seems to be really well made. But as it wasn't a brand I'd considered I came away empty handed to do a bit of research £400 is a lot to shell out to find its a pile of Having posted on here and the tarmac terrorists Facebook page also read a dozen reviews online it looks like I'll be going back to j&s in the next few days as everything I've read has been positive fit is more important than name or price IMO I agree Dave but as Bell isn't a "mainstream" brand in the UK I was concerned with the quality of the product which was really the reason behind my asking.
