Taking a pillion is the best reason for getting your licence, in my opinion.

It's the reason I got mine.

Re: Using a Timing gun/light

I've got one of those. It's excellent. Two comments - 1) you have to have a spark plug attached to the HT lead. 2) You have to pull the trigger when you want the strobe to fire. Can't think of any other reason it won't work. Make sure the arrow is pointing towards the spark plug, which you say you'v...

Re: Tyre Choices

I bought a couple of Vee Rubber VRM396 from M&P because they were cheap and I don't mind a bit of slide with the sidecar. But I took the sidecar off for Seahouses rally and forgot about the tyres but they gripped very well in the rain on the way back so I will use them again! I've bought some of th...

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

Personally, I think we've passed the high tide mark of the internet. There's a lot more business emphasis on website these days, and hosting a site is a lot more expensive and forces the owners to finance it to keep it going. The social media platforms are cheaper and easily accessible and all it co...

Re: How to get a licence

Cheers. The post was mainly about the complications caused by the fact that she's german. But as long as she's got an NI number she's good to go.

How to get a licence

Can someone clarify what needs to be done to get a bike licence, or really, just a CBT? It's been decades since I got my licence, so I'm way out of touch. This person has no licence at all. Is it possible she can get a CBT in time for IOW? I expect it complicates things, but she's German, been here ...

Re: Fuel Diamond!

I've got a genuine Innocenti one. I've been using the same fuel since 1968. In fact, it might even be Innocenti fuel.

Actually its crazy I know but it would be cheaper to buy another 24mm PWK carb and get a rubber coupling with it for £15.00
I've found that out. Only because the carb is so cheap I guess. There's a hydralic hose supplier neaby and I've planned to find the right size hose and use that.

Re: Torbay Lambretta

Really helped me out with an ignition coil earlier this year. He took it home and I picked it up from there. Nice friendly guy too. Torbay Lambretta deserve to do well.
