Eternal returner!

Postby Brickboy » Mon Dec 04, 2017 11:07 pm

I'm back!

What do you mean, you never knew I'd been away?!!

I'm looking forward to an utterly gorgeous RS arriving chez-Brickboy this weekend and hoping that, after so many other Boxers and oilheads and Bricks, that I remember to keep this one... Wouldn't like to bet on that though.

Still, have I learned my lesson? Well, hopefully!

Look forward to camping and motorcycling next year when it's less grim and salty out there.

Hi Simon,

Welcome back to the forum! :smile:

If you put your location in your Profile then it helps for Meets and Assistance.

Let's see a pic of your bike when it arrives!

Posting Photos:

METHOD 1:
Using the Forum 'Upload Attachment' method you are limited to uploading a picture of not more than 1200 x 1200 pixels max dimensions, 250Kbytes max file size.
Any problems will be advised when you try it. You can then add up to three pictures/post.

Here's how:
1. Go to 'Full Editor & Preview'.
2. Scroll down and select 'Attachments' tab.
3. Select 'Add files' and browse for your picture (max 1200x1200 pixels and 250Kb filesize).
4. Add any 'File Comments' to be attached to the pic.
5. Place your cursor in the post where you want the pic to be located.
6. Select 'Place Inline'.
7. Repeat from (2) above for up to a total of three pics/post.
8. Select 'Submit'.

If your pics are too big (> 1200x1200 pixels and 250Kb filesize), see the following depending on the device you are using:

Windows: I use Windows Paint (tabs Home/Resize) which allows you to resize a pic and save it under a different filename
e.g. 'existing filename'_ small.

iPad/iPhone: For iPad/iPhone photo resize, go to the App Store and download a free Photo Resize App such as 'Simple Resize'.

Mac: For Mac photo resize go to the Preview application where there is a resize function.
Ced.

Hi Simon,

That looks very nice and tidy!

Well done the previous owner getting it to you in such dodgy weather too!

All the best for happy biking in hopefully warmer temperatures! :grin:

Good looking RS.

I'd look to get some retaining straps for the panniers though. They have a nasty habit of opening when you least expect them to.

Hi Simon,

Lovely looking RS, I like the colour scheme, I have the same, 1981 (82 model year) in Stratos silver.
As Mike said, I have straps around my panniers, they usually have them in Aldi once or twice a year , can't remember
how much but I'm sure they're under a fiver for a pair.

Hope you enjoy it !
Nick.
