Turns out the guy who did a piss poor job of painting the front wing (whole other story) left this in the engine bay. At least it was an easy fix I guess. My negative review of his shop just got a little more ammo. Also free tools.
Just looking for now, until I get my CBT completed. The CB125F seems like a solid learner bike and has some very good financing which I prefer over spending a chunk of my savings. The local Yamaha dealer is closed tomorrow so I’ll be popping by next weekend to check out the YS125. Our licencing means the little 125…
As I said in my earlier post (link below) I’m learning to ride a motorbike and sorting out protective gear. First up gloves. Found these decent leather ones with carbon fibre guards for a good price. They fit very well and seem to have a lot of wrist support. I have a couple weeks before I start my training so I’m…
Just got booked in for my CBT test which, when passed, allows you to ride up to a 125cc everywhere but motorways. Motorcycle licencing is pretty complex in the UK, so here’s a quick sum up.
But I’ll play. My mam’s first car, classic Mini Clubman 1300cc manual. It broke down everytime it rained and dismantled itself when driven at speed. She loved it.
I’m in the shot somewhere. Mr Regular and The Roman were super down to earth and friendly. Some awesome cars turned up too, couple pics below.
RCR meetup tomorrow, I’m going in my awful E36. Hope to see some other oppos there!
Verdict: not bad. Only a passenger ride so can’t say how it drove, but the interior was good. Waaaaay better than a last gen C class. Was very smooth and quiet too. It’s much smaller inside than I expected though, the boot is only about the size of the Twingo’s.
Someone posted an ad for it a few weeks/ months back. Seems to be for sale by someone else already.
I’ve had to shelve the want for a kei car, since I realised how often I actually use my bigger e36 for practical reasons. So whatever replaces the e36 (I’m fairly sure it’s eaten it’s timing chain guides now) has to be somewhat practical. Comically my DD is too small to be practical so my second car has to be able to…
Crudely attached the £15 backbox I got off some dude on gumtree. I welded on the stock hangars quite well and then things went south from there. My subpar rushed welding on the pipe join led to the incredible butchery below at the bottom of the post. The funniest part is that it isn’t even loud, it sounds stock almost…
Acquired! Its for a Golf GTI mk2 but its the same pipe diameter and as I told the seller “everything fits when you have a welder.” It was also very very cheap, cheaper than the pipe needed to straight pipe the thing.
I’ve posted several times in the past about kei cars and my love for them. Here’s one that was officially imported to the UK. The model I want technically isnt a Kei car since for the later UK cars (the one I want) they put a 90hp NA 1.3 engine in, which exceeds the regs. But 90hp in a car the size of a shoe, mad…
I moved recently, which put me within 20 miles of one of the better small rock and metal venues in the country. So I’m takinng advantage and going to see Bury Tomorrow on Thursday. Seen them once before at a festival and they were epic, they’ll bring the roof down at this place.
I drove from my place to my parents today and I would not miss actually driving it if I had the option. It’s 150 miles of boring motorway with regular speed cameras and variable speed limits for 60 miles of it. It’s just tedious and irritating. Letting the car take over would be a god send to be honest.
Been rewatching some of the fast and furious movies before seeing the new one tomorrow. Forgot how much I loved this thing. I believe they’re 540i dressed up as m5s.
Found a painted plate that I apparently made when I was 7 years old. I must’ve been super into formula 1 at the time. Neat. Shame I wasn’t (and still am not) much of an artist.
