Landed in Milan for a bunch of meetings with the large bank based here. Great folks. Didn't help having a taxi strike though. Having the Rally here would have made life so much easier. I think we'll be doing a fair amount of work coming up here and in Rome so it may be time to invest in a company scoot.

I might have to make it a, ahem, T&G to ensure others can make use of it too within the group, or, find a decent geared bike and say to hell with the rest of them! 8)

I don't understand. You're never loading more than one page at a time so it won't load any quicker.


Searching for something within the thread, now that's a different issue. Even with MV's state-of-the-art search engine.

Don't you just go to the last page? I just tried loading this page, then the last page (clicking on the number [241]) of the original thread... they took the same time to load.

Josh how did you go finding work?

guilty..
today i went crazy must be cause of the heat of summer

i took of the pipe i got from SGNScott and put it in my excel 200, it was a PITA as it make me wasted 4 hour just to make the neck for the 200 barrel and once its stay in the bike i realize the silencer is sit way to low and i have problems in mounting my spare tyre, once i force it on my cowl isnt closing tightly Crying or Very sad emoticon

the good news is its actually produce more power in the 200cc rather in the 150 machine, test it on and i loose 2 of my rear licenced plate due to the rev i did all the way down the roads 8)

pics will come next until then have a nice day to you all and cheer

Yeah. Mine is ex Japan where they all have bar end indicators. I took them off to de-clutter the bars and to be honest, in the day with a 6 volt system, you could barely see them.

I was going to put it back on just as a dummy switch to hide the hole but the chrome cover doesn't look that great next to the polished steel
