1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Go for the bike, something small and economical for tootling around the back lanes on.
    A Triumph Rocket 3 should fit the bill. :D

    Hi,

    You think motorcycling is safer!! :) ... and not a money pit!!! I have an old(ish) but low milage RF900 tucked away in the garage which I got at the right price. It gets wheeled out now and again and still has a good turn of speed with 130 odd horsepower but sensible enough to commute on if required. Being a fairly portly chap I find that more CC's makes for more relaxing riding (and less conspicuous when progressing rapidly) with less fuss and noise. It's no lightweight sports bike but it's a good grunty all rounder and low on the insurance radar. It has carbs and a simple ignition system so I can work on it as well! Depends on your riding style but if I was to buy now I'd probably go for something like a 1200 Bandit .. or maybe an old Fireblade or ZX9 ... or a V-max ... or ....

    Sorry not much help. Enjoy choosing.

    Mark

    675 Speed Triple should fit the bill nicely, no head down arse up, lower insurance bracket (if you haven't ridden for a few years) and less to damage if you should happen drop it @ a junction !...:up:

    Hmm I will never understand the appeal of motorbikes - dangerous, cold, expensive, noisy, can't carry anything etc etc.

    if I were you I'd take up fishing - you have some of the gear already (clothes etc) and you're out in your own and it's peaceful. Also the chances of dying are far less remote than on a rocket with two wheels and no protection...

    You could always join the Juniper Green Air Gun Club, it's not too far from you, then you would have a lagit reason for owning an air rifle. Atb. Bob. PS. You could still buy a Rocket 3 :).
