  1. I thought the RFC shroud was made of hard rubber mat so would not be as vulnerable as you think.....I may be wrong though.
  2. It arrived three hours early, so missed it coming in. Was pretty impressive all the same with a huge, how can I explain it.....pallet trolly to move it the final few hundred yards into the site.
  3. There are some very tight turns and a tiny roundabout to negotiate in New Haw....could that be the reason for using such a beast?
  4. Yes, then down past mclaren then left through woodham and into new haw
  5. I will be popping out on my bike to see it through, will be interesting at some of the roundabouts and junctions around Woking
  6. It certainly looks ex-military? Should be an interesting site on M25 this weekend, and expecially when it negotiates roundabouts when it comes off towards Woking https://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/surrey-news/huge-lorry-set-cause-45-15036465
  7. If that's you police car next to the arena.....its gonna need a clean! Dusty or what.
  8. Dont think so...I just got an email. They are a great bunch, even if you are not booked in they will probably let you in...maybe drop them an email now.
  9. I do sometimes wonder if riding a bike should be made part of passing a driving test...it would help people understand how vulnerable other road users are. Driving an old vehicle not only makes you plan ahead in traffic and for road conditions, but makes you so much more aware of what is going on. The safer you make vehicles, the more stupid people seem to become!
  10. I am sure someone has it.....they just don't dare admit it
  11. And would surely invalidate your warranty.
  12. Is redeactivating an expensive task?
  13. Get the inspection plates off, and start getting penetrating fluid onto all the bolts and hinges. At least with all the bins and interior stuff out you will have more room to work on things. Did you find it locally?
  14. Hi guy thanks for that I did see that post. The threaded part looks fine and in fact I have some M10 studding that does the same thing. I am guessing it's the internals of the locking mechanism mick
  15. Are the thick solid lines tubes of some sort? Aerials of some sort, or at least wire or cable around the outsides?
  16. Paul, what format do you want the letter of support? A word document in an email? I think you may have had an easier ride if you were across the border in Woking, their planning dept seem to be a bit more lenient...according to a builder mate, Guildford is a much harder nut to crack! Mick
  17. Does tone have a good commander seat extension thingy. The threaded bar is good, have have made sure everything is clean and free but the retention bit does not hold the seat up when any pressure is put on seat. cheers mick

    Nice catch Lauren, condensed button makes scrolling through much easier I agree, did not like it at first, I also hate change, but it's growing on me. When you open a post it is easier to read now...a sign of my eyes going? Now I sit back and actually look at it creating or replying to a post appears much clearer. would be shame to lose any older members, it's tough with IT at the best of times, but I implore them to stick with it for all our sakes! Change can be good, keeps our minds active, and something to moan about
  20. Have you tried carbon assembly paste. Use it on my bike and stops things slipping....
  21. What constitutes a hybrid? you can move a Landy on its starter motor if you have it in first with the clutch up. That's electric? 😬
  22. Although the radio body is nice, I want to look at GS types first. I would also like to get one that is as complete as possible....doors etc.
