Re: Paint Code for 1989 R100RT Mono - Red

Maybe try a local auto paint shop? There is tech nowadays that allows a matchup using a scan of the existing paint.

Re: Engine Paint?

Just to add, I believe you will need to use etch primer on the engine at least. Otherwise the paint will not adhere adequately?

Re: Royal Enfield. Interesting

Well, I am enjoying my new Classic 500 but frustrated by the frost and salty roads. The bike has what I wanted - proper, almost functional mudguards, a minimum of chrome and a single cylinder. Now I can hear the engine and know exactly how it is doing. I have just sold a Yamaha XJ600N 'Diversion' w...

Re: Possible Trip to Costa Brava, Northern Spain.

The ST is more of a sports tourer with ride position to match but it may well be your missus' bottom that decides!

Worth reading a bit of history to get a perspective on the anti vaccine argument. Nothing I have heard is very different from the hysteria of the 1850's. Then the fight was typhoid and smallpox. Riots took place as some claimed children who had been vaccinated took on a bovine appearance. I joke no...

Re: Great quote
