    I skipped straight to contacts after a couple of winters. Pinlock or not, glasses and helmets is a ball ache.

    Motorways on a motorbike are just fucking shit. End of. Only reason to use them is if you need to save time.

    Here's a curious one. Anyone inside the M25 know how one can get about renting industrial space? Maybe shared with others. I'm hitting plural on project and it's getting very fucking boring taking out and stowing tools away every day.

    @Jung seems to be to a degree. Normally they’re just assembled poorly. Some people report new bikes that drain oil.

    Anyway, seems like I got to the bottom of it, literally. Sump gasket seems to have given up the ghost. Easy enough fix, apart from removing the headers first, which means removing the header studs and bolts.
    Out comes plus gas...

    Rad! This is very relevant to my interests. So many questions so little time.

    How is it mechanically? Issues? Crusty exhaust? Any oil leaks? Coolant tank still in once piece? If I was gunning for one, what should I be looking for?

    Digging the mods as well, including chunkiness aims, though I'd personally go for sliiightly less chunk! Where's the update on the bonnet drillage?
    I'd also like to request detailed report on the headunit with specifics to wiring.
    What's gonna go down with bouncy bits for that slight stance? You upgrading braking to anything bigger?

    Coming from motorbikes, my main priorities aren't so much power (maybe -12%) but I want the car to absolutely rip around corners and stop sharpish without much fade.

    Saw this today and this came to mind.

    In typical British bike affair, the Tiger has either spat out or consumed pretty much all of the oil in about two months.

    Let the saga begin.

    It’s a post 2017 (maybe custom as combination is not common) Trigger shifter and new style bars. Also 3 speed not a 6. To add more, this is the lightweight titanium too. Forks and rear triangle are a dead giveaway. Dynamo doesn’t commonly come as standard.

    More details needed on this. I’d ask for serial and frame numbers and check in with Brompton and bike register.

    Fooken do it mate, even if I’m the only one reading it.
    I work on motorbikes in winter so a car can’t be so bad. If it get an R53, means consolidating my bikes into 1 to rule them all. Something absurd and Italian.

    I’d very much like to see how you proceed with yours, not gonna like, drillium on the bonnet ain’t my cup of tea, but you’ve accomplished it with panache!
