    Ok feel a bit guilty about posting my non triumph related adventures in a triumph related thread :rolleyes:
    So this evening I treated my non triumph to new pads and pulled the wheels off for new tyres tomorrow... Its to be shitty weather so I will take the car. Will also pick up oil and a filter while I'm at it to see me through the next few months/tours :):):)

    I gave my (non) Triumph garage door a hose down and then used a chamois leather to dry it off :joy: 30091266-F997-415A-8B59-4E82BE265CFD.jpeg

    Certainly Sir,

    Please take a seat. Can I get you a tea or coffee whilst you're waiting?

    I part xd my audi a5 coupe for a Skoda Octavia 110 as I'm sick to the back teeth of twats hitting the fucking thing.

    I mean really it's a barge on wheels ffs

    33mpg to 62mpg (honest John's) is will save me £2k a year. Makes up for the 5k depreciation I'm taking the hit on...

    Don't do it BB. Tell them you've changed your mind.
    F#ck the mpg! Which car will be the nicest place to sit & most fun to drive?
    Plus the Skoda is just as likely to be run into as the Audi coupe.

    Hahaha I've change jobs mate, so relaized all my shit was work related, so I'm commuting 200+ a week now so the mpg is needed.

    Besides, I got my car back and some twat hit it in tesco, so I'm done with it!

    I think the WE57 AMM was a target for these Northern Jessie's mate. I'm going to put it on my bike :)

    Looks good, Dilli. Who makes it; is it insulated, and how much was it ... installed, please? There's no outside handle so how do you overide the power control from outside in the event of, say, power failure?

    Your just rewards? ;)

    Rod Bymaster, Mazda’s head of product planning and marketing for the Miata project back in the early days, claims his “biggest contribution to the project was to have found the word Miata in Webster’s Dictionary, which is defined as “reward in Old High German.”

    Yeah, I get accused of that all the time BB! :confused:
    Sometimes folk even use a coded version of the same insult..."I've seen smarter dressed homeless people!"... Is another favourite insult often directed at me :cool: :p

    Company called autoroll :)
    £840:eek: fitted :) should’ve been £950 but I refused to pay extra for the wood effect :)
    Not insulated but they’re available at extra cost :)
    I have a side door so Can access the garage and use a manual winder if I forget to put money in the meter :)

    Manual internal winders or simple catches are a bad idea on any garage door so I removed mine.
    I once lost a bike by a pair of Aholes coming through the roof and simply opening the door.
    Consider your options carefully and if you do lose power for whatever reason then have a cunning back up plan. :p
