Re: Shocked

This incident doesn't surprise me, nor the totally inadequate reaction of the police. Getting on for 20 years ago my youngest daughter, aged about 17 at the time, was assaulted by an adult drunk when she was out with friends in Norwich one evening.

Re: Braided Hoses

I had a good game fitting braided lines to my 2001 S. I got Goodridge hoses through Motorworks. Had a problem with the left front hose, it was too long, and it took Motorworks/Goodridge five attempts to send me a replacement that was the correct length. This was despite me emailing photo's, drawings...

This one was done on purpose - the scumbag driver is still in jail awaiting trial and the authorities are looking at linking him to a load of other hit and run incidents.

His name is Crum BTW - seems appropriate!

"Watch out for those sintered pads over winter - if you plan on laying the bike up over winter, either remove the pads, or slip a piece of plastic (packaging plastic) between pads and discs - to prevent galvanic action (localised pitting) between the pads and the discs." Yes and it's even ...

These are the beans we use over here which we can get in most supermarkets-having said that the shelves are 75-80% full of coffee pod refills nowadays. https://livraison.simplymarket.fr/acheter-cafe-grains-ma-tradition-maison-du-cafe-1kg-maison-du-cafe,177183,1,41,181.htm We also have a Bialetti sto...

We've got an original old Gaggia Classic - the old chrome plated one, on one hand it makes brilliant coffee if you can be bothered with all the faffing about and it can be stripped down and cleaned because it's all cast metal and copper pipes inside - but our €13 Lidl filter coffee maker gets more u...

A lot of cider made around here and in Normandy which is next door so to speak, I prefer Belgian and Flanders beer myself but have a few bottles of cidre in the cellar. I can put you on to a few biker B and B's if you fancy a visit - the best route for you would be to Portsmouth and Brittany Ferries...

Got a couple of bikes here in Brittany north-west France , an old 2001 R1100S which is in refit at the moment to try to neutralise the neglect inflicted on i...
