    sequential manual gearboxes?

    I prefer to have a clutch, it give a lot more control.... well it does on my bike. I think my gearbox is a constant mesh sequential dog box, and when changing gear I NEED a clutch (ok sometime I go down a few gears without when slowing to a stop, but only when its cold and using the clutch...

    Do you learn from your mistakes

    yes, really, if you dont then you will end up making those mistakes over and over. like today, I went up to box hill on my bike, some of the roads were quite gravely in the centre where I ride. so on the way back I remembered that the bike nearly ditched on the gravel so rode at the edge...

    Beer or fuel

    hmmm, beer or fuel. well...... really... in all honesty... would say fuel. but then again, how much money are we talking here? As I can get about 170 miles out of a tank if I take it easy, and that only costs 13 pound for V power. insidentally, HDI you use V power dont you? as you can...

    Six months imprisonment for motorcyclist caught riding at 120mph.

    I do agree with that, that it is a bit much to imprison someone for driving a bit fast, but in all honesty, in a car you have a bit more control if it starts to go, whereas on a bike you have very little control if it starts to let go of the road. all in all in my opinion, yes, he was an idiot...

    Six months imprisonment for motorcyclist caught riding at 120mph.

    ah K well thats where I am wrong, I wasnt sure on the speed limit and have never been down the road so I know nothing about how fast you can go down it. but in all honesty, doing 122 with a young kid on the back is very stupid, what if the kid fell off? I dont think he would be getting up...

    Six months imprisonment for motorcyclist caught riding at 120mph.

    I ride a bike and think that doing 122 in a 30 (think it was a 30) is WAAYYYY to fast even for a 'busa. ok they will do 187 (not 200 their limited) but you dont need to use that power where there is a chance of hurting yourself or someone else. And with his son on the back you would have...

    Other Car Forums

    I agree PH can be 'very' bitchy at times where people get flamed really badly, But at the same time it can be ok. I tend to use the Bike bit on there. whereas TC is much more friendly and from what i've found, will always lend a hand where needed ;)

    Car related practical jokes?

    A biker I know unpluged the rear Ht lead of a mates bike so it was only firing on one pot. quite funny when he went to do a fast getaway and only managed to beat my 125 by a tiny bit heh. putting ACF - 50 all over someones engine (its a anti corrosion formula) I put that stuff all over my bike...

    Cold steering wheels

    heated steering wheels/grips are great. just fitted heated grips on my bike and instead of having hands so cold I could warm them by putting them under the cold tap (ok I could be exagarating a bit there, but still), to having nice and toasty hands :)

    RWD Conversion

    dunno about it costing the same as a skyline to make it RWD. maby a grand or two. I agree, a rear wheel civic would be novel, pretty unique, but Im not sure about how it would handle as its set up for FWD.

    Thoughts on NOS.

    now, I think It would be a bit insane to put nitrous on my bike, its only good on turbocharged 'busa's for the drag strip. so purely for, well, just knowing, what would happern if I were to add NOS to my 2 stroke bike. engine wise that is, I know that it will be hard to keep the front wheel...

    Driving with no music

    quite often I ride with no music on. I think thats a bit down to I like the sound of a screaming engine, as my bike redlines at 11.5k revs :) and I cba to put my earphones in atm, as I have just bought an autocom (speaker an mic set for my helmet) and its a bugger to fit.

    Gah, inconsiderate drivers really get my goat. even more so, when, lets just say, certain drivers, seem to want to crash into me head on when I am filtering through a line of traffic jam. an example, today, going to work, noticed there was a long jam up to a set of traffic lights (was work...
