Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Braved the elements for a short ride out to try out some new gear. - Sat-ride-out.jpg Albeit sunny and dry, good wind blowing, wind chill was zero Celsius, yet did not need to resort to putting a fleece on as well. Altho I didn't travel very far. If you remember I changed the springs of the Euro sin...

Re: Maplin's in trouble ?

I note (again) - "... is the latest High Street name in trouble.

A string of clothing retailers and restaurants, plus Toys R Us UK, have all run into financial problems in recent months."

Hang on though - is that 10R resistance even needed in this case? Won't hurt, but should stop a hum loop, and you've had bother with that t...

Re: Maplin's in trouble ?

Didn't know they were owned by Rutland Partners. When did that happen? Not too surprised TBH - hardly bought anything from them for yonks, what I have before they no longer got and what they have now I don't want. Haven't been in an actual store for years. I remember once trying to refresh my stock ...

Re: Nothing In Particular
