Needs a new pump...????

That’s funny, but thank you for your input...

You need to realise that hiding behind the user name Costas, are two really knowledgeable guys.

There is Costas, who many on here have met and who is a sometime club racer and all round good egg.

Then there is Costas, who is the service manager at the local BMW dealership in Athens, who I have had the pleasure of meeting and having my bike serviced by and who is an even better egg, if that were possible. Forget everything you know about european main dealer service managers. Costas, who very likely knew he would never see me again for a very long time, if ever, treated me and my bike like his most precious customer, stayed late when we turned up unannounced the evening before the service booking (instead of rushing off to visit his father who was dying in hospital) and bowled me over with his warmth, his enthusiasm and his knowledge.

Costas rarely says whether his pearls of wisdom come from Costas, or from Costas  8)

I envy you having the balls to pack up and go Dave. Well, not balls, because I moved into the rural Welsh Marches three years ago and could easily have done what you did.

More, I envy your situation that allowed the move. Well done.

Having almost broken my neck and or pulled the bike over with my intercomm leads time after time after time after time after time in the days before the Sena arrived, this would be a very expensive as well as ineffective (after the first coffee or fuel stop) safety measure.

I used the Autocomm from 2004 till 2015'ish and almost never remembered to unplug before dismounting. Equally, I almost never remembered to plug in before riding off...

I needs a double-idiot-proofed one  ::)

Great review though Dave, although I was hoping you would at least have thrown yourself on the lawn with your attractive assistant holding your tether  8)

The dead give-away is the gentle close vs. the spring loaded close...

e-mail today from TomTom stating that speed camera warnings are now banned in Germany...

Is the 'spiritual sense' like 'the protestant bit' or 'the Catholic bit' cos that's getting very close to religion and you know we don't do religion, politics, sex or money in here...often  8)
