Possibly you do not live in the UK or you would know that  these days the highest levels of hate and intolerance are spewed form our universities where the students are taught what to think not how.

Would not complain at a bit of heat, it'd stop my joints aching and clear up my chest. All damp,wet, cold and in my bit masses of slushy mud.

Queer old world,  half the world lives in,the warm bits and wants to come here, and most here pay a fortune for a few weeks in the warm where the other lot come from.

I fekking hate, despise, loathe Christmas and all the BS and outstretched hands that go with it.

I went to Salisbury today and had to run the gauntlet of the Christmas market, basically a collection of sheds selling tat and overpriced german sausage baps.
Happily I met a man doing a survey about what I thought of it,so I told him........................ ;) :o
Feeling better now. ;D

I bet I know who you are talking about.........a pain in the arse septic know all,always goes one better.

I spent seven years on one site trying to help the others often with daft questions, It got more and more irritating, seemingly specialising in the sort of prat who asked complicated questions, about silly problems, thereby showing in reality he knew bugger all, then challenging the answer I gave.

In the end I came to the conclusion that the people who buy expensive classic bikes these days are middle-aged men who have done well in managerial positions or who have got a few bob and hate being told they have done something wrong or have bought a pile of crap for several 1000 more that it was worth.

A lot of the time their previous riding was done on a Honda 50 or a Bantam. Worst of all are the wanna be electronics gurus who seek a complicated technology soaked answer to cleaning the points on their magneto.

"Hi Guys I just sourced this cool retro bike like my grandad had and it won't start, why not?" is the one that plays up my dyspepsia.

Why do they always want to restore some scabby moped to its "former glory"?  ::) ::)

Its that time of the year again, bah humbug. >:(

most of the bike sites I use seem to have died on their feet or gotten tedious, I really don't want to know about your cruise or what bike you may or may not buy next. ::)

just give it a good run,it will take a while before all the smoke from'the redex,sump and what's coating the exhaust system gets cleared.

just make sure the oil is returning to the tank, if it comes in spurts the pump is ok, if its a steady stream its still clearing the sump.

over on sickba they'll tell you how metric spanners fit all sorts as well.

Just one other reason I won't log in there.

They use crimp ons because they cannot solder properly.

won't be BSA either.

You do realise there are less much folk out there who know about old bikes than there are messing about with them?
I reckon10% to 90%
