  1. Ah, right in Mike's comfort zone........... lol Cheers!
  2. Falmouth ..... certainly! Pubs, pubs, pubs, eateries, Maritime Museum, Pendennis Point/Castle, day on the local Ferries to St.Mawes and/or up the Fal River to Truro and back, ......... did I mention pubs ? Edit: and plenty of grey RFA boats in the docks incl. the new supply tankers.
  3. I've had a shaft driven XJ-650 for best part of 29 years. Best clean and maintenance free final drive you could wish for.
  4. Yeah yeah yeah, for you RN boys the South coast stops at Portland Bill ..... I get it
  5. Anything wrong with Exmouth, Dartmouth, Plymouth, Falmouth?
  6. Best I can come up with is : https://www.yamaha-motor.eu/gb/en/contact/ And do a search on the site here because there are a few threads on the subject.
  7. Fault codes on a bike?? .......... f8ck I'm old ................. and my bike too
  8. Yup. The FJ was slightly high in revs and MPG at cruising speed. But with torque to burn on the tank I went up 1 tooth on the front. The improvement was very noticeable. Did not need to change from the standard chain.
  9. I'm sure these courses have their benefits but road/driving circumstances change hourly/daily in real life and some things cannot be taught from a book or on a closed track. Pre-empting which way a cager is going to move (sometimes even before the cager knows) in any circumstance is a skill you learn only by being on the bike and the longer you have done that the better you get at it. Re sitting on the LHS of the road, no way is appropriate. Make yourself as big as you can by sitting as much between the middle and/or close to RHS of the road as possible. I often see these guys, mostly on 'lighter' bikes, tucked in to the left behind a truck or a van with absolutely no view or idea what is happening 50/100 yards up the road. Safe and cautious sometimes does not cut it - some circumstances demand a more aggressive stance to keep the cagers from having a pop at you. I don't think the tutors would like me much
  10. It snowed last night ❄8:00 am: I made a snowman.8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere. 8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead. 8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts. 8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with. 8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white. 8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up . 8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended. 8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role. 8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction. 8:45 - TV news crew from ABC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist. 9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather. 9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services. 9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested. Moral: There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.
  11. Tinder ?................. ............... I'll get my coat .... lol
  12. On that note 2019 could not have started any better. Due to the mild weather drove the 80 miles to work on da tank yesterday and back home again tomorrow. Would not have expected I could do that in Cornwall/Devon on the 2nd of January
  13. Belated merry Quizmas. Oh well, happy & safe 2019 then.
  14. Yup, when you feel THAT first drop find it's way down there
