  1. It's one thing owning a car, motorbike, van ect ect. But it's another thing how much they get used. I have 2 cars and 3 bikes + the Alfa, But i can only use one at a time. Everyone is making money off the fact we still need to Tax and insure and MOT the ones we use on the road. We make no more or less Co2 owning more than one motor. And i don't think it will be in our lifetime that everyone will be driving an EV, not the way the cost of living it going up.
  2. I had a nice SAAB 93 TID. Very quick car for a 1.9 Diesel, it looked very smart with it's 19" Black alloys on. Px it for a Mazda 6, wish i kept the Saab. I spent a lot of time keeping the Black paint work looking good.
  3. The contractor who was paid to do the work. The wife got a total of about £17.5k. The solicotors had about £10.5k , The insurance got £2.5k, Sick pay (Gov) got £500, Joy got just under £4k
  4. Why would you want that . I think these sort of bikes just get used at night on the strips where people are sitting trying to have a drink outside.
  5. Back in around 2011 the wife bought a kawasaki er6f if you can remember me posting about it. She came off on that shell stuff they put down and left loose on the road with no signage just 6 weeks after buying the bike . It took over 3 years to get the money back for damage to the bike, loss of earnings and a broken leg. after everyone else was paid she got around £4k.
  6. Seeing one out of the dealers in someone home, they do look a lot nicer in the real world. But still can't deal with the price tag. Maybe when they are under 10k used and the cost of living is under control. But then again, i don't do the mileage to warrant buying one. What i've not had, i won't miss. anyone got a winning loto ticket they don't want
  7. This could have happend to anyone, Suzuki are making so many engines that there is going to be a % that will have a fualt. It's just a shame that this engine was used for racing from the off. just a bit of bad luck really. The guy has 5 Gen3 busa's and has had loads of Gen1 & Gen2 and as he said this is the first time this has happend. I think he's been very lucky over the years.
  8. If your thinking of fitting an alarm to you Gen3, Please read the link below first. I found this thread on the ORG. and thought the info in it is worth knowing. DON'T fit an alarm until you have read it. Read the whole thread. Alarm warnings and conditions
  9. The pops and bangs are not for me. And i think most people over 50 would think the same as me. So going by the figers he was getting on the dyno with the DD3. What would have been the figers of a Gen2 with the same bolt on bits.
  10. Back on topic (sort of) Went out on Tuesday and we did 70 miles. Filled both bikes up today and it cost £24.71 It cost £12.47 to fill the xj6f and £12.24 to fill the Busa @ £1.83 ltr. So both bike were getting about 46mpg. The xj6f now has a full Leo Vince system fitted so i think that why it's down on mpg, from 53mpg to 46mpg. As for the Busa, I'm happy with anything over 40mpg.
  11. you can if you playing with sport bikes and you don't want them to pass you.
  12. When i had my Gen1 i use to love getting the bike over. But now i'm 10+ years older i'm injoying the views more so ride slower. I also remember catching a old type ball cats eye with my exhaust on the vfr12 when it was not that old and H.onda wanted £1600 for a new one, which i did not buy. Was going way to fast for the bend, silly boy i was.
  13. So i have just got off the phone with my bank. The lady was very helpful. She removed the pending from the money morrisions fuel had on my account for the fuel i did no have. BUT she has said as i used my PIN with the card in the fuel pump, Morrisons can still take the money upto 6 months.
