Whatever your views about Brexit, the behaviour of the bureaucrats, Barnier, Tusk, Juncker et al, since the referendum demonstrates exactly why we should leave. >:( >:( >:(

Drove an Omega for the first time in years yesterday! Spent the day going over it. Itís the marked police one, not been used for years!
I took precautions before starting, but it doesnít sound right! Cam sensor code, slight top end knock and wonít rev past 4K rpm. Tomorrow will be spent working out whatís going on  ;D

Sticky followers?

I've had Iphones since 4 as I get my daughter's castoffs, now on 6S, and never knew until someone mentioned it above that swipe up or down did anything!!! It works as a phone OK though. :y

General Car Chat / Re: Torrid Tyre Time plus tyre rotation
« on: 16 September 2018, 12:33:55 »
If you're talking about the direction of rotation (ie swapping one side to toher) that's a no-no because a lot of tyres are directional and, if not, if the rotation direction has caused the tread to feather in one direction, it would probably cause "unpredictable results"tm if you suddenly swapped it to the other way.

As to rotating front to back, it can even out wear but as to whether it's worth it, I'm not sure. I usually make sure new tyres go on the front of my Omega because new tyres tramline less.

The Blackcircles advice was quite clear on this, on FWD, tyres go from rears to front opposite side UNLESS directional. :y

I haven't rotated tyres for some years, but found this interesting: https://www.blackcircles.com/general/tyre-rotation

« on: 14 September 2018, 19:25:17 »
The superbikes of my day were the T110, Dominator, G45 and King of Bikes, the Black Shadow. I only had the first but yearned for the last. Some 30 years after I had ridden a bike, I was staying with a friend in Hong Kong who had bought a Yamaha shaft drive as a big boys toy, I think it was a 750. Come and have a go in the New Territories he says. Bloody hell, the gear change was on the wrong side and every gear seemed rocket assisted, it frightened me to death. I've steered clear of big bikes since. :-[ :y

You mean the stuff I suggested about two hours ago?  :P
In any decent garden centre or hardware shop.

I thought you meant the aerosol can stuff. I already have a can of Raid.  ;)
No, I said wasps nest killer. It's powder that you put around the entrance to the nest and the wasps carry it in with them. Pay attention, young Tigger.

This ^^^ :y

I am the go to guy for wasp nests in our Close. I just puff wasp killer powder into and around the entrance. This is all your council guy does. Sometimes two visits are required. Never been stung yet, and don't wear any protective clothing. You should be able to identify where their access point is.
I've currently got one in my own roof, but they don't bother me, and as they serve a very useful purpose, I'll let them be.:y

I can't believe anyone watches ads these days? If commercial TV has something you want to watch, record it and skip the ads. :y

If nobody watched them and/or if they didn't work then companies wouldn't have them. Advertising is a vast industry whether it's on TV, Paper Publications, Internet, Hoardings whatever. Male pride may not like this, but there's a saying that nobody ever just bought anything, it was always sold to them somehow.  ::)

True, but we on OOF are too smart to fall for them, aren't we. ::)
