K Club Humour / Re: Essential extra for R owners
« on: Yesterday at 04:49:36 pm »
The coppers in Newbury used to use unmarked Novas and my idiot neighbour used to end up getting bounced into one almost every week...

Your neighbour obviously didn't have an R2 unit! ;)

Useful for planning hyperspace runs! :D

This! I mean really, how else am I going to try and beat 12 parsecs for the Kessel Run?!

Indeed. After all, you wouldn't want to fly right into a star or bounce into a super nova!

The damper is what dissipates the energy of the movement. The spring simply stores it. They need each other!

Correct. Because you didn't include the words shock absorber.

If the words shock absorber are used, it is the spring doing it, with or without a damper (which even the industry insists on labelling as shock absorbers!

I agree that the industry labels the damper as the shock absorber and that on it's own, that's a job it can't do but, we'll need to agree to disagree that the spring alone is the shock absorber.

Are you perhaps running a post Brexit garlic and beret smuggling business I wonder? :D

Have a good trip.

Anyone who has bounced along with a spring that has no damping may disagree Brian. I'd say you need a spring and a damper to make a shock absorber!

Sadly, the only real, viable option is to buy from BMW.  :(

So Brain, what is your opinion on Charles?

I think he may well make a half decent king. After all he's served a pretty decent apprenticeship! I am happy to wait and see and judge on performance and I wish him all the best.

The only constant in life is change, and this is just another change in a never ending line of changes.

Hello ad welcome. As Rae says, you may be able to clean a little more life into the current radiator but there is ultimately only one way these things go. :(

I use my headset to have music playing in the background when not riding with other riders.
