So yesterday I was en route to the VRT office to get my classic assessed when I spluttered to a halt on the M50 unexpectedly. Managed to get over to the side across traffic lanes before it completely died. Hadn't noticed but my fuel tap had been set to reserve and the tank was dry.

Bollox I thought, nothing near me and on that long stretch between 10 and 11 going south so facing a decent walk for a Jerry can at a minimum, not to mention VRT appointment in 20 mins, for which there's a no-show penalty of €45 I think.

About to dial the AA and resigning myself to an hour freezing at the side of the M50 when a Hiace pulls up...

"What's up?"

"Outta fuel"

"Where ya going?"

» Not dead yet
Jan 15, 2021 - 11:20 PM - by dufferman
Hope you are all keeping somewhat sane lads and lassies,

Do you remember Oisin Hughes and the documentary Not Dead Yet. It covered his trip from Ireland across Europe and doing the road of bones,

I thought it was brilliant and have watched it a rack of times. Is there anything that anyone has watched similar that's worth a watch (looking for recommendations).

I watched long way up recently and couldn't get me head round it. It was ok but seemed to be thrown together especially nearing the end. Converting a bus to carry the bikes was the more or less the penultimate episode and it hardly featured in the last episode after. Pointless imo.

Anyway if there's something you have seen that's worth a look to kill an hour in the evening... [Read More]

» Battery acid -New EU reg from 1st Feb 2021
Jan 12, 2021 - 8:24 PM - by Error52
Don't think this has been covered. You can't buy dry batteries with separate acid pack from Feb

"As of February 1st, 2021, Regulation (EU) 2019/1148 that prohibits the sale of sulfuric acid for batteries to the public and to end-users, will enter into force and be applied throughout the European territory.

The principle is to prevent the use of sulfuric acid (which usually comes in the form of a pack with the unactivated battery), for purposes other than charging and activating a battery.

All distribution players will have to adapt to this new regulation.

These batteries must be charged and activated by a professional before being sold to public. The professional will make sure that the battery is delivered to the... [Read More]

Lovely day today, thought about making a cup of black coffee and went out the back garden and visited the scooter in the garage. No fancy shop coffees here as I spent all the money on the FZ6. Saw a friendly garda car drive by the house.

Some day roundy mooney, the covid will be gone and the warmer weather will be here and we can ride again.
