      Johntee Hi Steve, are the side panels vented? If so, what a good idea. Exhaust looks well too.
      • February 7
    • vesparado
      vesparado yes mate they are vented, using a runner engine in a closed environment. its the best way to keep it cool.

    HUGO No wonder the French lost the war: Went into the local CA bank yesterday to make a deposit to my sister's account and I asked the bank to change a twenty Euro note. They said that they don't carry change, so I had to pay it in as didn't have much time. I ...  more

      Johntee Sounds like your bank needs to get back to basics Hugo. As you already mentioned , rain again, even the ducks are starting to complain. However, there could be some sunshine for a while tomorrow so maybe I will be able to go for a run somewhere. Fingers crossed !

    gerrythemerckarenme: Don't expect the Police to do much. You need search all the nooks and crannies in your area in the hope its been a joyride and dumped. Sometimes they are burnt out. Otherwise it has neen stolen for parts and you won't find it.

    • Timsenior
      Johntee Assuming indicator lights work as well, look at the light switch on the handlebars as a possible fault. Cheers John.
