Re: Motorcycle airbag jeans

"Excuse me miss, please can you help me get my pants off?"

Is this why you have been banned from all supermarkets in Burnley?
No, that was the episode with the donkey, the wet suit and the dead fish.

Re: Motorcycle airbag jeans

How many people are going to throw this rubbish in the nearest bin after they have exploded ludicrously one too many times just getting off their bike on a garage forecourt, or in the Chunnel train..... Who dreams this dung up? ](*,) How does one remove them if they are in their exploded state? Pre...

Re: SAE to metric conversion?

Of course the benefit of km is when touring aboard. When I see 200 km to blah blah, I see it as 200 miles... it comes down very quickly then!
Same here, I just love that about driving in Europe. :)

Re: Motorcycle airbag jeans

Perhaps in the future on impact we'll have suits that completely enclose us in a giant foam bubble with built in air supply and a week's worth of water and food rations.
Like the I Robot Audis. :)

Re: Motorcycle airbag jeans

Hmm, visions of you going down the road like a bouncy castle in a force 9, doing cartwheels and unable to stop. Talking of explosive devices in cars. Strictly speaking you are supposed to stop and declare your airbag before going through the Mersey tunnel and most other tunnels in the UK. They have ...

Re: Date of manufacture

I think after today's news I shall wait. It seems that there are 500 cases of the miley cirrus in the DVLA building so I am prepared to admit they probably have bigger fish to fry. I shall wait a while longer.

It will be back next week again after the sale falls through.

I think it will go fairly quickly. You should buy it. Even if you don't like it you will not lose money on it, just a bit of time.

Does anyone know how I can find the taxation class? I sent off the change to historic form along with the V5 about five weeks ago (IIRC) and have heard nothing. I was hoping to stick it on the road but without the V5 that they insisted on having back, I cannot find if the tax class has changed to hi...

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

I apologise, I do tend to get a bit verbose, however there is a tendency with airheads (and to be fair most other enthusiams) for people to get very polarised about what is 'right' and what is 'wrong' for any individual machine or modeland I think it's important to realise that there are very few i...

There are some woodworking products which I would never use as they virtually catch light if you mention their names!

Re: K1100rs rear diff

I would think this is where it fits in to the scheme of things... Motorcycle MOT Manual Section 5.1.3 To assess the wheel bearings: (1) With each wheel raised clear of the ground, including any sidecar wheel, rock the wheel by hand to check for excessive play in the wheel bearings. (2) Spin the whe...

Re: K1100rs rear diff

I still can't imagine that excessive play is an MOT fail. As far as I know there are no "rules" for the mechanical components of the drive train provided there are no obviously collapsed bearings and other really obvious stuff.

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

So if I could (in theory) find a 8" round led light and reflector unit factory fitted on a UK spec car or bike that would fit a airhead (big list of requirements !)

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

Imeant that there are no standards for retro fitted LED lamps.

There will be eventually because the lefty green mob will start whinging about greenhouse gasses and force the issue. Eventually.

Re: RT 100 Factory pop out spot and fog light fitting

It is pretty stupid anyway. A light source is a light source when all said and done. Provided the beam shape conforms to the relevant standard then what is the problem.

Soldering iron

Just a quick recommendation really. I have been trying to buy one of these since they came out with it. At $25 I thought I would like to try it and have to say I am completely impressed. I had to watch closely as they sell out very quickly so as soon as they became available I ordered two. They arri...
