Re: TT time again!

If "sprinkles" equals "Hundreds and Thousands" then I can "safely" say I had them on top of my ice cream last year and survived the experience. When I Go to the Isle of Man in August I intend to ignore the danger and have the same again. Sid That's fine Sid, but may I just suggest that you don't ea...

Re: TT time again!

In my opinion, the UK's absolute religious OBSESSION with "health and safety" above all other factors is obnoxious and a negative blight on the society. The "health and safety" cry is used as a trump card to excuse any ban, behavior or anything else the authorities deem unacceptable. You surprise m...

Re: TT time again!

2 Bulls are colour blind to red. Well I tested a local member of the species with an Ishihara plate which any non-colour blind individual could see had a numeral seven on it, and the cow just gave me a baleful stare and wandered off. How much more science do you need? Perhaps the bull you approache...

Sadanorakman, I understand what you're saying but, I also agree with others on here. Once government gets started on something they take it to extremes.

Obviously the TT is a bit of a "Marmite" subject but it's all right with me. Couldn't get there this year but am going to the Classic TT/ Manx in August.

Sid.
I hope your trip is a safe and enjoyable one Sid.

Re: TT time again!

Brett Challenger is the hero of my book which I never actually got round to writing. He was a sort of mix of Simon Templar, Biggles and Clive of India. That is SO cool. You should absolutely start writing it right now! Make a start at getting those years of ideas down. But no wait, I'm forcing my w...

Re: TT time again!

Seems to me that most of the trouble in this world is from people who think that they know what's best for others and then try to force their will upon them. You'll never escape it offcenter, it's human nature. You've only got to look at 95% of politicians. I'm not trying to force my will on anyone...

Re: TT time again!

Shooting pigeons has been banned in the UK, thanks to the odious Chris Packham. And personally, I would like to see cats banned - ghastly creatures. Hmm yes, Chris P3cker. What's wrong with cats?

Re: TT time again!

Just my opinion, but about time this seemingly ridiculous event was banned. Another Isle of Man TT death yesterday, (Daley Mathison aged 27), who leaves behind a Wife and Young Daughter. RIP Daley, and God Bless your Family. Don’t get me wrong, I do understand what is in these guy’s blood. It must b...

Re: Dyna Beads vs Counteract Balancing Beads

One of the "old guys" here at work says that he has never balanced tires (big Harley) - he just mounted the dots near (or away from) the stem. But he has since got tires put on at my friend's motorbike shop and had Dynabeads installed - his bike shakes less now... Ha! I thought the only way to stop...

Re: Interesting restart issue

By the way, anytime my bike sits for an hour or more, I need to give it a touch of "choke" or else I have to crank it for a bit. Reminds me of a Ford Escort MkII I had as a teanager. It was fitted with a twin-choke Weber carb, and after a hard drive on a hot summer's day, the residual engine heat w...

The Motorbatt comes with an adapter plate that clips to the underside to make it fit in other applications, but it's not require...
