If only you could remember which sensible place you put the list though eh?

I'm knocking on 50 myself and not that far behind you and I've been called Pops since I was 39 so I'm just using up the pisstakes before they start flowing my way.

Genuinely saddened by that one but 72 isn't a bad run I guess.
Wait till you're 72, then say that.

I knew Fabarge (with an accent) made eggs but didn't realise they hatched into turkeys.

Sorry but a Barry Sheene GSXR just does nothing for me, too much of an anachronism.

Is that 105 dry weight? I assume it is cos like I said, I've not noticed many areas on mine where I feel like I could reduce much weight without getting into exotic materials.

Re: *** BREAKING NEWS *** The end IS nigh - and it's 2035

If they can make a crazy enduro bike weighing 100 Kgs tops, then I'll give it a go. Which enduro bikes are 100 kilos and ready to roll? It's been a while since I looked and my KX 500 dry weight is 100 kilos but with fluids its a fair bit more. Lights and ancillaries add maybe another five? I've not...

Re: Have we got a 'Show us your pets' thread?

Pup seems to be putting on about a kilo per week, on the15/06/21 he was 4.3 Kilos. Today he's 7.3 (at 11 weeks old) so he's gaining weight nicely. Also he's now got a name, after various efforts to find one* and my wife being being pretty lukewarm with them she started suggesting the round spot on h...

Re: Power tool batteries for ebikes

Depends what battery platform you use for some of this. For instance De-Walt sells some Flexvolt batteries which give out either 18 volts or 54 volts depending on what tool they're connected to. In the 54 volt configuration the tool windings don't get so hot. More volts, less amps for the same Watts...

Re: Muscle Bound – Blacksilver XJR1300

Nope.
Bars too low, likely uses the riders thumbs for lockstops, pod filters, and that front mudguard just isnt.
Straight shot from the rear tyre to the pod filters as well.
