    Triumph street triple R

    Well as part of my resettlement package and leaving the RAF after 23 years in 2015, I took my full motorbike license. Had the Honda cbr600f as my first bike for a year, and the triumph 675 I've had almost a year now. Anyone else consider themself a biker?

    Hello bmw5forum

    Hi all, nice to see the forum still flourishing ! Once more I find myself perusing e60's on autotrader. Nothing wrong with my insignia, apart from it being horendously uninvolving, it's neither bad or particularly good at anything Oh and after 4 years I'm bored of it haha. What would you guys that own \ have owned an e60\61 recommend engine wise. Cheers

    Triumph street triple R

    Excellent !! Lots of travelling, very envious. The triple is great, the inline 4 bored me within a month, the triple has power from very low down, love it. I'll be at donington on 22 mar, bsb practice day. Early May I'm doing a ' performance plus' course at cadwell park ; half classroom and half track and slow skills etc. Did it 2 years ago and found it useful.

    How do I remove a snapped bolt?

    Failing that, drill then tap it out. Or.. how many threads available, shortened bolt ?

    Karcher Pressure Washers

    Pressure washer to remove initial dirt, and wet the car. Snowfoam to absorb / lift anything more stubborn. Blast that off. Wash the car, mitt of some description, not a sponge ! Blast again with pressure washer. Uses less water than a hose with better and faster results

    Inconsiderate Parking

    Good luck when you find yourself in a situation that requires you to use on of these parking spots, and some 'yoof' in a nice car has taken the spot There are equal arguements for both sides of the story, car parks should simply have requisite sized spaces. There is no excuse then for damaging another vehicle, (because yet again, your struggling in a standard sized space to extract children / the mobility challenged). If anyone knows of a childminding service available in the Lincoln area, Ill gladly not take my kids to the supermarket ever again ( in reality.. I do it all online for that very reason ) Seems a few people need to put their tar brushes away to, never have I parked blocking traffic, even if it means hauling a wheelchair for a mile, or simply not going to the shop .. .my attitude was pretty selfish as seen above, before we found ourselves in the current ( long term ) situ and had to take the wife out in the car. I wouldn't wish anyone to genuinely need a blue badge ( seems many don't that actually do have it ) ... but seriously ladies !!

    Inconsiderate Parking

    Being a user of both the disabled, and 'mother and child' spaces.. I'd bet a fair whack on the only people complaining about said spaces are those that don't have to use them !! I'd like to challenge such people to get an adult in a wheelchair, a 3 and 7 year old boy safely out of the car parked in a regular spot, across our local supermarket car park, because yet again, there's no free suitable space ! Happens a lot, because the few spaces that are available are always full, possibly by those that don't have an ounce of compassion .. despite numerous letters to the supermakret explaining the situation, we now frequent a different 'brand' Y'can't whine about a dent in your car door, if your the sort of inconsiderate $%&"^$£ that uses a mother and baby space, ( designed specifically for such users to open their door fully to extract a brat ) or a disabled bay and left them no option to park in a regular bay ( yes I realise that there's no dents forthcoming if your already parked in that kind of bay ) Ideally, as mentioned already, car parking spaces would be of the correct size for all ... but it's all about packing the punters in for maximum profit :S
