  1. When I were a lad, the Tamiya offroad buggies (and the 4x4 truck) were considered the mutt's nuts, I see there are reissued versions, are they still held in similar regard? p.s. Does this thread have the record for 'longest gap between posts' ?

  3. You can on Flight Sim X 😎 It's possible to take off again, but you need to back the main gear right up to the start of the concrete, and have no pax or luggage, and only minimal fuel. Also accelerate with no flaps, and deploy them just as you hit V1.

  5. Euro spec CRF450L: 23bhp US spec: 40bhp The US version isn't 'tuned'..it's the EU version that's hamstrung. Honda will even sell you a conversion kit (for offroad use only ;-) https://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/new-bikes/2020-honda-crf450l/
  6. When you tax a motorcycle in the UK, the category is 'bicycle'. Actually, trikes form a bit of a grey area. A motorcycle to which a sidecar has been added is still a 2-wheeler. Those weird motorcycles from Yamaha and others, with 2 front wheels, are still bicycles. Something designed from the outset as a 3-wheeler, like a Reliant Robin, can be taxed as a car or a motorcycle. You may choose to register it as either, depending on what driving licence you have. Pretty sure I've seen a TukTuk on the Island. Annual road tax £25? get in.

      Same day every year! There's 4 of us on the forum with the same birthday.

      Obviously this year it was a bit subdued :-D but i was able to skype with my family, and have a few brews.

      I don't feel my age. And I still don't look it ;-)

      Hows things with you?

      How long have you got? :) Glad you had an alrightish day & I've just noticed your date of birth, you're right (unless you've aged terribly since we last met) you don't look your age.

      I'm not going anywhere, unless the rumours of drinking establishments to be re-opening, if we have a continuing absence of corona, are to be believed..


  9. Can he stop saying 'going forward', I'm running out of tequila.
  10. Pint says that elections will be cancelled. For our safety, of course.
