Perhaps they are not designed to 'roll over', imagine being perpetually stuck on 999999?

banged up
I just read in today's Guardian, A southwest London moped Gang, about 12 of them have just all been put away.. They according to stats made 55% of all moped crime in London. They snatched kids from mothers during robberies, ramraided high-end shops and even angle grindered off a £180k BBC camera attached to Putney bridge during the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race in broad daylight... All scooters all nicked of course...Scumbags dealt with Hurrah.

I wonder why.
This should put a dent in the bike thefts and the associated criminal activity linked to those thefts.
Good on the Police.

My bad. Always feel people that come from further afield get a bit cheated. Whole thing was over in an hour. Will remember you for the next trip out.
Possibly next week to Clapham if you are about in the week?
That goes for anyone else in the area too.....

Where'd they go?
WOW! 3 pages and 6 days with no activity on one of the more entertaining topics. Must be ace riding weather over your way.

Hope this revives a Skok or two.

It is rather nice riding weather at the moment, lots to discuss from this side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately to discuss it would break one of the fundamental rules of MV.
My vegetable garden is looking good though

Thank you! Only finished building the raised beds and compost bin so looking forward to the garden after a long period of landscaping (remodelling).
Still not quite finished with a lawn to lay and a patio to put together but phase 1 is complete and we are eating our own produce at last!

Up Hill Gardening
Does anyone have a pair of rails that support the fly screen on a GTS300/250 ?

Don't need the screen, just the rails.

Thanks.

Screen Rails
On another note,

I have the screen rails and all I want for them is a gushing 1000 word essay on why you love the Vespa scooter so much.

That's really funny.

Let me stroke my tatty graying beard and try to come up with something.

Was actually using a grade 2 coarse was that the right mix?

Yeah that may have been better. But would the acidity be too high?
Maybe a more alkaline mix would have been better for a more sound footing for vegetation.
What do you reckon?

I've had to peg the sloped turf down with tent pegs. Should be ok until the grass takes.
