  1. Believe it or not Dutchy, I have never been to Eastleigh, If my memory serves me right that's where the bootnecks are based. Also, I have never been to Southampton (Merchant rather than Royal) Mike.
  2. Quite right Dutchy, I'm a bit embarrassed, I began my naval career in Cornwall (Torpoint) Mike. Never been to Exmouth or Falmouth. Are they worth a visit. Mike.
  3. Ha Ha Dutchy, brill. It's just that being in the RN and going on holiday with the sprogs I didn't frequent the other places that you mentioned. But how I omitted Plymouth and Dartmouth I don't know. Maybe I'm thinking of the South Coast and not the South West Coast. Mike.
  4. In all honesty Morillo, we've all tried different combinations of sprockets. I.E. faster acceleration but slower top speed, or slower take off from lights but higher top speed. The best thing to do is leave it to the manufactures specs. Believe me, they know best.
  5. Hi and welcome to the forum ljr05884 Based on the southcoast That's a bit ambiguous, where on the South Coast? Weymouth, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Southampton etc?
  6. Cheers Blackie. In my day it was as you said, Rum-Bum & Baccy. But now It's Juke-Jake & Jive. Mike.
  7. Cheers Neo, don't want an Essex boys "manbag" maybe I'm not describing I't very good but I have got a sort of one I got from a petrol station about twenty years ago for about £1.99. But I want a more "robust" one with a buckle. Mike. BTW, the one I got from the petrol station is only held together by Velcro. I would preferably like it to be secured by a buckle.
  8. Going slightly off on a tangent, can anybody recommend where I can get a backpack with only one strap? Not sure what it's called but It's a bit like a diagonal bag that you put over one shoulder and can swivel around to the front. Mike.

    Fuel Tank Leak

    Believe it or not, about ten years ago I had a fuel leak from the bottom of the tank whilst at work. Blu Tac got me home til I sorted the problem out. Mike.
  10. Well, Hi Will Smith. Your Intro is like an eye in the poke with a stick burnt. As intro's go, Useless! Mike.
  11. Yeah, seems to be sorted out now.
  12. Only clutching at straws, but could it be to do with this? The bike is factory engine wise other than a free flow exhaust. Mike.
  13. You're not joking Oldfjman. Mike
