  7. Hi drewpy I joined photobucket .com I think I was having trouble pasting from the iPad and that's why I only pasted phobucket to my post . I have selected a image in my photobucket library then pressed copy then gone to insert other media then pressed insert image from URL then pasted it . It shows the URL http image text in red and the cursor just whirls any advice before I throw the iPad down the toilet! Cheers rich ps blackhat would have completely rebuilt one his 400s in the time it's taken me not to post some photos!

  19. The bike hasn't been on the road no v5 or plate really don't mind a q plate is it really tricky to get it registered because it's got the makings of a good machine and I was just wondering what year the engine was for ordering parts cheers rich
