    It's Been A While

    Not replied sooner P.C on the blink Got the R1 before we got married(just). Kept telling her I need a new bike, I need a new bike! She got fed up with that so she agreed in the end. Took her indoors on the back once - it will be a while before she goes on it again. Just lineing up for a bend when she decides to move about on the back Nearly stuck bike in a hedge then said it were my fault. Bit of a row so slept on me hand that nite Off to Donington 2morrow for BSB scrutineerings from 1.30

    April Fools Ideas

    Leaving a couple of bolts under a mates bike is good for a giggle. Watching them rip their hair out trying to find holes to put bolts back in!

    Polish Divorce

    A Polish man married an English girl. Being in England for a year or so, although his english was far from perfect, they got along very well. Until one day he rushed into a solicitors office and asked him if he could arrang a quickie divorce. The solicitor said that the speed for getting a divorce would depend on the circumstances and asked him the following quesions: Solicitor - ''Have you any grounds?'' Pole - ''Ja Ja, an acre and a half and a nice little home with three bedrooms''. Solicitor - ''No, I mean what is the foundation of this case?'' Pole - ''It is made

    You've not actually got a bike then?
  10. If I remember correctly the set up included taking the sag out of the suspension. This is done by lifting the back of the bike (leaving the back wheel on the ground) and measuring from a point on the subframe to the centre of the rear spindle. You then lower the bike down again and re-measure the distance. The difference between the two measurements is adjusted by the spring adjusters on the rear shock. ie If there is a difference of 10mm then you adjust rear shock by turning the ring until there is no sag. You use the same procedure for the front forks. After you have done this then you set y
  11. MCN did a feature on suspension set up a couple of weeks ago. Not for your specific bike but, from what I remember reading, it should work on all bikes.

    Loud Cans

    Exhausts are only checked for condition (rusting / blowing / not fitted correctly) and whether they are BS stamped. It's very rare for a MOT tester to noise test a bike - there are too many variables. Weather conditions can add + /- 3db, testing in an enclosed space can lead to false readings due sound bouncing back from walls etc. Noise testing cannot be done outside if it is raining!

    Looks like.....

    It's only cheating if: 1) Other teams put a protest in against the machine. 2) Non compliance to technical regulations found during inspection in parc ferme after racing. 3) It's a Ducati! As regards the Foggy bike - still not sold the required amount for homologation and is still allowed to race!
  14. A brunette, a redhead and a blonde escape a burning building by climbing to the roof. The firemen are on the street below, holding a blanket for them to jump into. The firemen yell to the brunette. ''Jump! Jump! It's your only chance to survive!'' The brunette jumps and the firemen yank the blanket away. The brunette slams into the pavement and splatters like a tomato. ''C'mon! Jump! You've gotta jump'' yell the firemen to the redhead. ''Oh no! You're going to pull the blanket away'' says the redhead. ''No it's brunettes we can't stand! We're OK with redheads.'' The redhead jumps.
  15. Hey! You're right. I never noticed that. I was too wrapped up in how shite it was!
