Re: BLOA dead?

LOL, I just checked the campsite, it's listed as only having 38 pitches!! So with all the ves*** it should be rammed. In fairness Gavin doesn’t pick the best of dates for his rallies. I wonder what else is happening that weekend :?: He probably checked personally with the 3 people going that they w...

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

Forums still have their place, ever tried searching for something on FaceBook? I often struggle to find a post I was reading only 2 minutes earlier! People do use FB for ease as it is quick to ask and question and quick to get replies, unfortunately the quality of reply is often poor. As for scooter...

Re: seeking recommendation on GT200 gearing

Advice I have been given is Franspeed Race is ideal if it's >200cc, but the Supertourer is a better match for 200cc and my gearbox. David Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk Rich T recommended to me the Fran Race over the Supertourer for all of his kits, using one on my GT186 (4.8) and more than ha...

When I put in my number plate it states that I have to pay as they have no information on the emissions for my scooter, but if you then click further through it does say that if it is a Historic Vehicle, which it is, then it...
