Summer of 78.
Central London.
I worked exclusively for a publisher in Little Essex St. (Angling Times and Nursing Times are the ones I remember best).

I took the pasted up copy to the typesetter in Bedford. Twice a day.

I had a VFR800 Fi-1 ( more or less the same) and have had a series of modern bikes since then. The one constant in my garage though is a Honda 4

It was Bryan’s bike that was stolen and torched.

I had one of them too!

Mine was an R-plate 3.2 V8.  I did about 120k in the eight years that I owned it and then traded it for an SLK for my wife as a silver wedding present.

Maybe I should start a new thread "Cars you have owned and loved" ?

A new member recently emailed me and called my forum "a joke"

Before I delete him, just thought I'd check as to whether this actually works...  I can't test it myself as the admin rules are different.

I use these in my up-and-over garage door



They are unobtrusive (especially since I painted the chrome bits black). Half the trick is not to advertise that you may have something valuable.

Out & About / Unit 1 Motorcycles, Wickham Market, Oct 18
« on: October 07, 2018, 10:11:56 AM »
This place is just a few miles up the road from my mother-in-law's place in Ufford, Woodbridge but I've never been there before.

After dropping her off on Satrday morning for a flu jab at the doctors' in Wickham Market, I drove down there and introduced myself.

First surprise - walked in and David Silver was standing there with a cup of coffee!

We chatted about bikes (as you do)

They have some really nice stock - said they were short of Hondas at the moment (just one 400/4) but had half a dozen 916s coming in soon...

Only had 20 mins so took some photos and promised to go back next time I'm in the area.

Long time since I've seen an RRN 'Blade

Nothing against bobbers by the way. I went out on the Triumph 1200 Bobber and had a ball!

I’m in danger of needing an anorak here.

K0? Surely not with a 21 frame.

If you shoot me down on this I reserve the right to delete the thread.

IIRC they are just standard 20mm glass fuses. You can buy them anywhere.

To keep all those thoughts, reports and photos in one place, I have created a new board in the "General" section.

I've moved some threads there. If you find one that I've missed, just drop me a line.
