I know this is for bicycles but could this be the next innovation for motorcycles.

The Euro K Club Lounge / Power Bank Jump Starters
« on: June 12, 2018, 03:53:03 pm »
On the Wrinklies trip this year Brian had occasion to use his jump starter on Sudlolea's bike when it wouldn't start.
It performed perfectly and hardly used any charge. Has anyone tried the cheap Chinese ones like This
If so what are your opinions?

It seems that many online route planners will be going tits up soon. Google are implementing and charging for an API key.
I had an email from Tyre/MyRouteApp as follows (linguistic errors included)

 
Many route planners will discontinue!
Many current route planners that are based on Google Maps have been discontinued or will soon be discontinued. This is because from 11 June Google Maps will no longer function without the API key and an API key just costs to far much money. Tyre will keep on going, but without Google Maps, the Tyre programmer is currently working day and night to implement a different map service.
 
MyRoute-app will continue!
For MyRoute-app this does not pose as a problem, since right from the beginning we have had a professional and legal Google Maps API key. This in combination with the official map services of TomTom and Here (Garmin) as well as including map layers of OpenStreetMap, Michelin and Street view, makes it a pleasure to plan and share your travels with MyRoute-app.


We will just have to wait and see what form it takes after the 11th June.

Ride Out Reports / Sewell's in Wales
« on: May 04, 2018, 04:12:13 pm »
After only being home from Euro travels for two days I was off again with Melanie to Tenby in Welsh Wales via Twigworth near Gloucester.
I found a nice parking spot right outside the hotel in Tenby. On the second day I came back to find an infestation of wasps.

tomorrow we are off to Llandudno.

Ride Out Reports / The Duffers in France 2018
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:43:57 pm »
Well doesn't time fly? In just over 4 weeks the Duffers are off to Belgium, Luxembourg and France. The trip is a bit longer than previous years, mainly so we could spend a couple of days in Luxembourg. This year there are five of us on the trip and looking forward to it.

K Club Humour / Noe Schitt
« on: March 16, 2018, 05:45:21 pm »
I know who Jack is!!

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?
We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt!"

Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.
Awe Schitt, the fertiliser magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc.
They had one son, Jack.
In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children:
Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deap Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents' objections, Deap Schitt married, Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.

After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and, because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.  The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.
The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pizza Schitt.
Now when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt," you can correct them.

K Club Humour / This made me chuckle
« on: March 08, 2018, 12:24:59 pm »
This made me laugh, it's from another forum (BCF) where the language can be a bit colourful. The OP was asking if Premium Unleaded made any difference, he then informed the forum that he has a Chinese 125. This was one of the replies.

Premium on a 125? You'll make a more noticeable difference having a big shit before you ride it in the morning.

Why?

Tomtom are bringing out a new model Rider, it's the Rider 550, which apparently connects to WiFi and updates without the need for a computer. I'm hoping they include the addition of a sim card like they have in the Go 5200 so that it will be totally independent.

Details, as they are, are here
