Re: GRP Panels

There is Mark Hodgkinson. I think that's his name. He's on FB. Maybe someone here will have his details.

Re: Lambretta Seat

Well, it's whatever you feel happier with. A good bench seat is definitely a step up and the Pegasus seats are very comfortable. Although, you'll get a sore bum on either eventually. :D

Re: Tv175 top speed

It's a weird thing, but regardless of capacity they all seem to do more or less the same speed.

Re: Is this switch correct for my TV?

White. The switch with ivory buttons is a mistake. I was told that the manufacturer replicated the aged appearance of the switch that was supplied. Hence the fact that they remade them in the correct colour.

I agree with Hotdog, Heidenau tyres work great for me.
I've got some K47's fitted to a scooter and I've been surprised how good they are. They look a bit like tractor tyres, but handle really well.

Re: Tyre Choices

Michelin S1's are awful. Never known a tyre like it for tracking every line in the road. Avoid them like the plague. About the only thing you can say for them is that they last well.

Re: Legshield beading

I like Scootopia, but their leg shield beading is awful, to be honest. I think the channel is cut completely wrong. I had a couple of sets and couldn't get them to fit at all.

Re: Legshield beading

To be honest I haven't had much luck finding any here in the UK either. Closest I've got was some cheap Indian beading, funnily enough. It's just the channels that are the problem. They don't fit the lip.

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

To be honest I always thought this would happen. I said as much when they started SULK. It's just disposable froth. I'm not sure anybody actually reads it. It's just about hits. Not that I'm saying that's true for Scooterotica as such, but digital media is just designed to be dipped into and as long...

Re: BLOA dead?

Morning. So someone was saying there's not much going on here at the moment so here's something to chat about. Anybody know what's going on with the BLOA, I'm banned from the Facebook page and only have the LCGB side of the story so far. Any of those who supported GF had a change of heart, especial...
