Added reply in a thread Companies who can scan and machine parts for CNC 5/31/2020 10:50 AM

Yup , they spent thousands printing a Sit Ski for a disabled athlete that the 'designer' said was a 'bespoke solution' .. when I got first sight of it , the blueprints had nothing you could actually check, and when I asked why they had 3D printed something ... more »

Whatever you do, when you copy something, you have just that , a copy. You have no idea of the original specification, all you can do is guess at what the original sizes and tolerances were. I have seen some horrific stuff over the years, like people ... more »

You can scan stuff in 5 mins, then you have to take that scan and turm it into proper surfaces.. takes ages. Costs money.. i did have a file for my RM125 ignition cover done, but never got it made up.. you can 3D print off a scan , but machining is a ... more »

Every cent you spent on the build , will have been wasted if you put that seat cover on it. Fuck me, you will be asking what colour to do the spokes next. Don't be 'that guy'.

I was there, and that was immense. Our weekend died when Max Anstie got KO'd .. but that moment then made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up , and it still does. Actual racing.. Thorpe's last to first at in 3 laps at Farleigh, Jobe jumping Malherbe, ... more »

So at a race, a guy next to me has a bike that wouldn't run , rode it back after the first race, didn't fire up for the second, I didn't get involved as I had my own stuff going on, but it became obvious that he was struggling and his mate with him was ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tell Us About Attending Your Very First Outdoor National (or GP) ? 5/20/2020 12:19 PM

First GP was Farleigh Castle in 1979, we went down for the day , sat in a crap place in the woods, queued for hours to get in and out. I guess I was 13 or 14. Learned to drive and did 125/250 stuff here too, didn't miss a 500GP until about 1990. first ... more »

Added reply in a thread Boyfriend spoke with his wallet and surprised me with an early anniversary gift.. 5/10/2020 5:35 AM

And nobody does this type of bike like Honda. Often copied , never bettered. I wish I had got one for my wife when she was keen to try, but I didn't have the budget, or a place to ride it, which is a big problem here in the UK as a novice. Enjoy it, ... more »

This is why teams sometimes have a guy who you think 'why does he have a ride'... because he is the guy that can tell, and what he says , goes on the other guy's bike too , cos he is a dumb shit who wrings the shit out of whatever he is given. That R&D ... more »

That was a great show.. one thing that always comes out of these shows, is how much fun they all had doing Supermoto, which is kinda cool, was lucky enough to be part of it at the start. funny to hear GL saying how he just followed Mcgrath over a jump ... more »
