But, if Scotland get their kilts in a flap and leave, we brits (lower case b note) won't know what our flag looks like  :(

… but if Wales left the flag wouldn't change :(

What I cannot understand about Nicola Sturgeon and her desire to leave the United Kingdom is her fervency to remain in the EU. So loathes Government from Westminster but is happy with Government from Brussels

So my boss asked if I'd be getting new centre caps to compliment the refurbed wheels, I said probably, then he pointed out that BMW did self righting wheel centres :) with a bit of staff discount they've worked out a tenner more than the retail on the standard ones, can't wait to get the car back and fit them :D

Previous owner of my X3 had done a horrible rattle can job on the alloys, mate of mine who does my MoT's said he could get them done properly in whatever colour I wanted. Figured I'd go for graphite grey (hopefully wont show the dirt easily :) )

Very pleased with the results!

Images a bit too large to appreciate Steve.

Hint (IF you're using firefox) : Ctrl-mouse wheel up/down zooms out/in. May make the images fit on your screen...

Same with Internet Explorer

Other (K) Bikes or anything else! / Bonding with the K1
« on: September 05, 2019, 09:44:23 pm »
Been using the K1 quite a bit recently …. and I love it. Despite its 30 years of age I find it surprisingly modern riding, comfy, good brakes, good handling with a surprising turn of speed.

 I find the 16 v engine needs more revs than the old 8 valve motor to get it in the flow but once she does it's easy to find it flowing to silly speeds :)

 Went up the Horseshoe Pass the other day and there was a guy taking pics of the bikes. Found him on Facebook and he very generously gifted me the pics he'd taken :D
