  1. Just had a mate come back from a quick break near where we are going, sorry to say but some of the hotels are charging 2 or 3 times the usual rates for just a room and even then he said that you can get bumped if someone offers more! So I am going to stand back from this years run out, I won't pay through the nose for someone to then ask for more, F**K sake you would think they would honour a contract. So if you all go then best of luck and have fun but not happening for me. Makes me cross to think that by helping out local buisnesses they then get all grabby for a short term gain. (Steps
  2. Hi and welcome to the YOC.
  3. That will do me fine mate. Just let me know what you want in the way of booking and I'm ready to go! Be nice to get together again after all this time and have a few beers. As above, shall we book a block booking, might get a discount? Always worth a try!
  4. Yep I'm in. Gotta sort out where to stay tho!

    Tool question.

    I have this bought it from machine mart for £30 odd quid! Will undo bolts on battleships! Gotta have a reasonable air supply tho.
  6. Hi Mick, as above I am a member of N.A.B.D and they will help if they can go here http://www.nabd.org.uk/ talk to the ladies in the office and explain what your problem might be and they will contact their suppliers and see what if anything they can do. Really nice folks and always willing to help if they can. Not sure about the costs involved but they do have loads of experience with ex-forces personnel with all sorts of missing or damaged limbs. Good luck mate. [email protected] use this for general enquiries. this is the phone number Tel: 0844 415 4849 but they prefer an email to g
  7. Hi Peter, just a few facts you need to add if you would. Where did you buy it from UK or USA or some other country? What do you actually have in the way of other documents? Bill of sale or nothing at all! Does it have matching engine and frame numbers? This because if it's a frankenbike then your going to have other problems registering it. A bit about where you are in the world as well would help as advice about UK laws will not apply if you live in another country. And was it a private sale or from a dealer. Some dealer will sell old bikes without paperwork just to gey rid of them and save t
  8. Thanks Finnerz I did not know that but will check it out now. So that said are we going to set a date or just wing it? And jump in with short notice and hope we can all make it? That's ok for me but some folks need time to sort out work and family life stuff. Whatever just shout out when your ready to pull the pin. Just looked it up and sure enough the date is the 4th of july for hotels to open (possibly not if we get a "second wave") so anytime after that and we have a winner. (well done Andrew!)
  9. I don't mind where or when to be honest but I REALLY don't do camping so if the hotels are shut then fraid not this year!
  10. I take it your talking about the (1977 XS 750 Special imported from Colorado) from your original post yes? If so you might try to contact Yamaha UK, Try here for phone numbers and such they are really helpful if you are stuck https://uk.yamaha.com/en/support/contacts/index.html Hope that helps and good luck.

    Tyres...

    Hi Mate hope your well? I use Metzler roadtec 01 on mine, seem to be really good in general road use, not really special in any coditions but hold well in the wet and dry. I also fitted those angled valves to make pumping up the tyres easier but they are F**king useless so stick with ordinary valves. This guy has some good things to say about them and I agree that they do flat off at the top of the tread after a LOT of miles on motorways.
  12. Hi Ken, welcome to the YOC.
  13. Only applies to BMW and AUDI drivers tho!
  14. Thank you Sniff, I actually laughed out loud!
