While calling into ASDA superstore just outside Edinburgh to get some tea on my way home from work, I exited the store only to find my motorcycle stolen from right outside the door!!!
Cars & Bikes
This is my collection of petrol head writings, be it about my cars, my bike, mechanics, motoring in general and a few of rants and raves about the state of the roads/traffic/people on them. You can also see what cars and bikes I have owned and their specifications.
With rough winter weather on the horizon, I thought it would be a good idea to invest in a decent set of tires to go on my Defender, just in case the forecast is actually accurate for once.
I've always used Disklok's as part of my car security, and the Defender is no exception, but I can't just tuck it in behind the seat anymore... it tends to move around quite a bit and is always out of arms reach when I need to refit it!
After several years of gentle nagging by my Land Rover obsessed brother in law, I finally gave in and decided to get one of my own. After a day looking around, he found me this lovely example which I have just bought!
I've needed to replace one of the bulbs in my Yamaha XV1900, but nowhere can I find exactly what bulb types and sizes are used in the XV1900. So here is a list of the standard bulb fitments, types, voltages and wattage of the main bulbs.
Ever since I earned my motorbike licence I have ridden bikes with loud pipes and never had any kind of accident or collision. Three days of riding my new bike on standard pipes, a car driver "didn't see me" and went straight up the rear whilst I was stopped making observations at a junction. Time to change that and fit some loud pipes!
