Re: Talk to me about heated gloves or heated grips.

I dunno why I didn't buy heated grips years ago,I mean I used to ride all year round without them and now I don't,I buy heated grips. :roll:

Mind you there are plenty of days during the other 3 seasons when they are welcome.

They are my fav thing atm. :thumbup:

Re: What have you done today thread?

Beware the horrors of the dry socket! Don't even joke. Wisdom tooth extraction last year was bloody awful. I suspect it may be that which was the root (pun intended) cause, as I recall a huge wad of blood and shit breaking off the night I returned home. Suspect it was the clot and that, in turn, le...

Re: Astrazeneca/Oxford vaccine approved

Mrs irie gets another AZ jab tomorrow because it seems that for some reason her first AZ jab in January in a hospital wasn't recorded in the NHS database. Then I guess that in 12 weeks from tomorrow she'll get a supposedly second but actually third jab. Who knows wtf she'll end up like after three ...

the only thing it really needs now is fancy suspension and tyres.
That can often be more spendy than the likes of a PC,but more worthwhile in the pleasure stakes imo.

Re: Looking for some new GoreTex spring/autumn gloves.

Went for the Held. Very Impressed with them so far, though my riding has been very limited since I got them. Plenty of feel, warm when it's been nippy and comfy to wear. Not the cheapest, but as my ol' nan would say, 'Buy cheap, buy twice'. :thumbup: I like Held stuff. I've a textile jacket made by...

Re: What have you done today thread?

Just had a tooth extracted. Had the choice of root canal through the existing crown or extraction. Having gone the root canal through a crown before, and it still giving me gyp, I went for the medieval option. 30 minutes of tugging, levering and eventually drilling got the bugger out. Just having a...
