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.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Hi all, I know a few of you on here have motorbikes and I was wondering how much it would cost to do the CBT test on a scooter
    My lad is looking at getting one and may want to sell his HW100T in .177 to fund the test and insurance
    Thanks for any info, Bryan

    It'll be around £100 for the course, not too sure about the insurance though. I'd urge him to hang on to the HW100 though :)

    You're covered under their insurance for the CBT. As above, about £100 if he is using his own bike, £120 if you hire theirs.

    Keep the HW though..

    The insurance will be the killer for monies though unfortunately.

    I would also advise doing it on a geared bike.
    Firstly as it's a great way to learn and he will be ready for a bigger bike in years to come. But
    Secondly, if you do the test on the scooter, You will only be licenced for the scooter.

    like above has said even if he is getting a moped, id do it on a geared bike just so he has the choice to move onto a 125 and if he ever does do a full test it will be alot cheaper if he has been riding a 125 as he wont need as many lessons.

    He can ride a geared bike as he's had trials and moto x before so it may be an idea to do it on a geared bike, cheers for that lads
    As for keeping hold of his rifle I've told him that he'd regret selling it but he says once he is mobile he can look further afield for more part time work while he is trying to get his apprenticeship sorted and I won't argue with that if he's making an effort
    And he also said he will borrow our kids lightening if we go out

    Can't argue about motivation there. Good on him and good luck to him.

    No sorry,
    regardless of what you do your CBT on, your not restricted to the type of bike (Geared or non) Your only restricted to the CC.
    At 16 years old, your restricted to 50cc. At 17, 125CC. Geared or scooter.
    A valid CBT will allow you to drive either.
    They cost around 100 pounds, and insurance will be around 300 - 400 fully comp on a 50cc.

    Most places will include bike hire, insurance, equipment hire for the day of the CBT in the price.

    my mistake, must have been an old law, Will still make sence to do the CBT on gears so they can teach him all they have to offer.

    yes this is true, when you pass the cbt with either you can ride either. i passed my cbt just a couple of weeks ago. it was £120 and lasted 8 hours. the cost and time can vary from place to place. its valid for 2 years, in that time he will need to pass his 125 licence or big bike licence or face another cbt at the end of the two years. if he does the 125 licence (about £90) he will be restricted to a 125 (or more specifically 33bhp) for a further 2 years then gets automatically upgraded to a bigger bike license. if he goes for a bigger bike test straight away (das) its in the region of £700. i think you need to be 21 or over for this though

    he sounds like hes pretty mature sacrificing his hw100 for something that can earn him money in the long run
