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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Funny isnt it?

    My work has partaken in the cycle to work scheme and as i thought it would be nice and i have not gone on a bike in at least 15 years i thought i would get in on it.

    So i ordered my £600 bike from halfords and went to pick it up with a further £150 to spend on accessories (loads i thought...)

    So anyways the lad in the shop says my bikes in the back and what bits do i want/need.

    I says dunno what do you think i need other than a helmet or lights?

    First thing he says: "mud guards?"

    My reply: "course i want bloody mud guards!"

    It is at this point i realise nearly every bike in there does not have them!

    Since when do bikes not come with them!?

    Next thing: "a pump?" He asks, "i have one" I reply.
    "Is it the right connector?"
    It is at this point I learn from my previous mistake and look at the tyre before replying.
    b****r me they have changed the valves as well.

    Nope wrong adapter better buy one of them to lol

    Anyways this went on, Thankfully the young lad in the shop didnt seem phased by my ignorance of how things have changed in recent years and was good to deal with even though he got distracted easily ;)

    I ended up taking home about £850 worth of gear in the end, thankfully I only pay back about £500 of that in monthly instalments before tax so its a pretty good deal i felt :)

    I had a police one once, well for a couple of minutes. When Mr Policeman was talking to a fellow biker i noticed he had left his keys in the ignition, so hopped on and rode it around the car park.:D He was not a happy Mr Policeman i can tell you, had no sense of humour either.
