  1. To throw in a daft price because it is worth twice as much but then interest wanes and you are last man standing. It is the flea market equivalent of " i could use that", not I want it or I need it... "i could use it". A very powerful sentiment. Do not underestimate it.
  2. My problem is different, I haven't had a drink. I have a bid on for a 50 inch telly i didn't really want to buy. 44 minutes remaining. If I had had a drink i would have been asleep and not bidding on things I don't want. Well mad at myself.
  3. Got back from work catching up on Olympics. The Brownlee brothers were hammering out a triathlon and there I was squaring away a large tikka and donner mix grill with chips.
  4. So you meant tresses then chad, that would be a sight to see
  5. Once seen on a bike advert.... GSXR 1000 for sale, two weeks old, quick sale needed. The obvious question why are you selling a nearly new bike. Reply: Apparently do whatever the f*$k you want I don't care means a completely different thing to my wife
  6. Jack is spot on. Such challenges usually involve soul searching moments and ' why the hell am I doing this', stll, they are irrisistable.
  7. Plenty of time to log out a route then. I could start at the opposite end and perhaps meet up halfway. And since forum members are so far and wide apart, they could join for maybe 50 mile escorts along the way
  8. Round about when would you be looking to do it?
  9. Just mail me that credit card and I will help you decide very fast
  10. I am trying to locate the above company last located in coventry. They machine rotor discs for nearly half the price of stock rotors. They are rated by some racing teams so their stuff is quality. The only thing is I can't seem to get any infor about them since 2012. Any one in the midlands know about them?
  11. It never ends does it? I decided to swap sim cards to the new phone. I thought it best to cut my current sim card down to micro size for it to fit so out came my Rambo knife. Now I have no phone till friday next week when a new sim card arrives.
  12. I wonder what the old greys (cells) will will come up with this time?
  13. And ofcourse, this morning my old phone that was responsible for all this muddling starts to work ok out of the blue.
  14. I'll be having the last laugh because they sent me two phones. Now I have 3 working phones. I remember events conspiring against me and almost ending up with 3 sat navs off ebay. I will be sending one back though as I have endured enough bad luck without inviting more.
  15. I am always jealous when someone says they have bled their brakes. I always seem to have so much trouble bleeding mine. This time round I did each caliper on its own day so as not to get pissed off. They are still not where I want them. On my last M.O.T. I had advisories on my rotor discs ( slightly warped) So I will be changing those soon hoping the reduced braking efficiency was due to them.
  16. 1977. I wish it was 10 years earlier though
  17. My mobiles ringer stopped working and I started missing call and wake up alarms. I spent all day profiling phones and saw a decent deal on ebay. So I woke up at 4:30am to sniper someone out of a deal and won. £140. Paid up. For some reason I looked on you tube and found out I could have bought parts for my other phone for £1.58. Delivered!!
  18. \it soon catches up Chad. First you need two days to recover from a night out. Then you start making noises every time you get up from the settee. Then a load of iconic singers from your youth all croak in one year. Before you know it it's on you.
  19. I decided to go to the cinemas recently off a whim. I was standing in the queue and conversation within a group near me went to dates of birth. I nearly had a stroke. Some were 2002,2003. I do not have kids so you can imagine the birthdays I revolve around are the 60s and 70s. I didn't think they were still getting born. Too bad for them, they will never know motown, disco, soul, 80s ...
  20. I posted the above caption as i was researching a north America trip (riding) I wanted to plan but bum me... the last three days I have read articles of bear or mountain lion attacks all over the place. My previous destination had been Peru until I watched a programme about kidnap by FARC or Shinning path rebels. They tend to chop you up if they cannot ransom you.Should I just stick to butlins?
  21. was looking to sell my bike and some one came round to have a look. Priced it at 2200. He offered me £120 and asked if he could take it with him. He promised he would not ride it until he paid off the rest. I almost laughed but realised he might be a simple lad. I sent him on his way. I now know there are a few simple ones in his family.
  22. came across this whilst researching canadian trips In the case of a close encounter in your campsite and you know it is a black bear, try to convince it to leave. Once you know the bear has a clear escape path where it won't encounter other humans, stand tall and look at the bear while saying "Get out of here bear" with a stern voice. Keep doing this until the bear leaves. result; bear dinner
