    Old cable fitted, bloody stiff compared to the one that broke, but better than no cable. Problem was the nipple that fits in the lever to hold the cable fell out when it broke :fpalm so I had to make a new one.
    Never straight forward !
    It will do until a new one arrives

    Filthy minded Mainland yobbo's. Here I am trying to have a technical conversation and all you can think about is sex :rofl
    At this rate we will have to notify all the farmers along the route and get them to move the sheep away from the front paddock. You guys might get a bit home sick :D:bert:bert

    If he gets wet, he just needs to back it up a bit, then try again.

    Padmei, those pictures are of that boat thing that we have heard speak of.

    Look away Look away or it will swallow you then spit you out, and you will never ever be the same again.

    You will need the salad fork.

    good luck:wave

    Just spent the last 2 days working on that ferry. We had our van parked in the bike parks near the kennels on Deck 3 and I noticed that the sign for lashing bikes states the Motorcycle Passengers are to tie the bike down not the Riders. I asked a crew member about this and got the look:eek1
    When onboard have a look

    Okay, so Stephen, Craig & I will meet at the Mana weighbridge at 9.00 am to ride up on Friday morning. If there is anyone else who was thinking of joining us, please flick me a PM.

    Suppose I'd better start getting organised then...:D
