When in doubt, pin it.

Probably slipped on some oil that fell out of your Audi.

Touché :)

It doesn't actually drop any oil at all though, it all just goes into the engine and gets blown up with the petrol. Something to do with the piston rings apparently.

Yeah, whoever ran the engine in on your car was a fucking bellend and ragged it way past safe limits during the run-in period.

So instead of your piston rings making a proper seal in the cylinders, there's little bits that oil can seep through into the combustion chamber. I suppose if anything it should increase power slightly (more energy in the combustion?) but it's not good for the engine.

Similar fault on the early 140bhp 7th gen Celicas, although in that instance it was a manufacturing fault that made the piston rings weaken over time and become misshapen, allowing the oil to leak through. Worst case I ever heard of on that car was burning a litre of oil for every 200 miles.

It's not that bad for the engine as long as it has oil in it.

Aged Thing. I just don't know what to think. "when shit goes south, I can escape. Unless safety is 121 miles away. And, around a bend".

Still, seems you fit a lot of stuff on a bike, making a trip to a festival faff less, eh, myp?

Heh! Not everyone's cup of tea to be sure, but I love stuff like this.
One of the key things I love about Harleys is that they are, by default, post-factory customised in almost every case, and individualised. No two bikes are ever the same, and it's great just chewing the fat with other Harley bikers about their own bikes/projects, and what could work for me. Sure, we're all 40+ but it's an interesting mix of weekend warrior accountants and genuine MC 1%-ers the like of which you'd normally not even lock eyes with, let alone say anything to 'em, and everything in between. Lots of Harley gals, too, and not just pillions either, naturally. To me, it's cool (Malicool? :) )

I'm not sure about the furry seat cover.

I've always liked the Bonneville America; my carbed Bonnie T120 was a lovely little machine, and that 900cc engine's a peach.

Gotta be honest, I hate big screens (and furry seats :D ) but it's his ride, so it's his choice. :)

Seriously think I might pick one of these up after the weekend:

250 Watts of raw power. A proper motorbike, not one of your "enginebikes".

Wow, that's 0.3hp :D
My old Honda C50 chicken chaser had 3.5hp. So relatively speaking, it's a CBR1000RR Fireblade to this. :p

(But seriously, I actually think it's pretty neat, just taking the piss likes :) )

It's a higher BHP per tonne though, i suspect.

What sort of range does it get before the battery runs out?

I've got a spare FlyKly smart wheel if you're interested, Mark.

It depends how hard you pedal and what level of assist you're using (to be UK-legal you have to be pedalling even if it's basically a token gesture), how much you weigh, wind, hills. But real world seems to be about 30-40 miles or so. By all accounts it's like cycling normally but always with a strong wind at your back, which is a type of cycling I actually enjoy. It should have more than enough to get me to work and back plus more if I want to go out for a longer ride.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of those but I think I want a bit more range and power, not too keen on the idea of a single speed bike either really.

Doubt it; a C50 weighs around 65kg, so that's 18.6kg/bhp.

So if there's only 0.3bhp on offer, that means for the same power to weight ratio, Mark's bike would have to weigh in at around 5.5kg, whereas it's obviously going to be more than that. Even if it did only weigh that much, the weight of the rider would still be vastly more significant and be a dealbreaker... Oh man I'm such a :nerd:

I very much doubt that this little bike could do 30-40mph unassisted like a C50 can. :)

Yep, but unlike a moped the bike can do 20mph on the lower promenade. Still, it probably won't be faster at getting me to work than a moped, but it'll be faster than a Porsche.

Heh, indeed. Porsches suck in traffic, just like everything else.... 2 wheels required. :)

My 2-tonne, shiny black Amarok is good at intimidating its his way through traffic though. :D

Nah, new and shiny and I call their bluff. Old and battered are the ones I give a wide berth to.

While there's nothing wrong with the Amarok, the Raptor will be on sale in the UK soon...

I'd have one just so I could say "clever girl" every time something happened...

Wow, that is awesome.
I love the Amarok; reckon it could pull tree stumps clean out of the ground with that immense torque; goes like absolute stink for such an absurdly large vehicle; full 4x4 is permanently engaged and is liquid nitrogen cool in its own way (IMO :) ), but that rocks. Is it a diesel? (Mind you, the Amarok's V6 does no better than 28 mpg, though is still running in)

Mrs C's RR Sport (diesel) absolutely kicks the Amarok's arse though, and it's almost as big/just as heavy/still only a 3 litre V6.

PS: like the Jurassic Park reference :metul:
