they aren't linking you with fb, they are selling your info on your phone to fb advertisers.
So that they can target you more effectively for adverts on facebook.

I'm happy with whatsapp still.

Re: what's the best channel on YouTube that's NOT Bike related???

Love it!
Watched 2 and will be going back for more.
I think the commentators are better than the actual fight.

Re: Petrol tank stripping

Is there any need to go all the way back to bare metal if you're going to repaint anyway?

Re: The way we were

I also had an MTX125 just like that.. and then 4 years later an MTX200.. which was nice, and of course I should have kept it!
Actually I'd like all of my old bikes back... :((

Re: Find me a bike for summer..

My Mrs will likely be selling her MT-07 in the new year if you're still looking then.

Good luck with the bike search anyway. :D

I also had a zx-4 same colour. Crashed it on the way home from the dealer on a wet roundabout with a rainbow diesel slick.
I miss that bike, it was a real rev nutter.

Re: (Dumb question) - Should you rotate your forks?

Honestly I just couldn't be arsed with it, even if it was benificial. Just change the bike more often.. lol - I tend to hold on to my bikes longer. But the issue is you almost need to release the tension off the forks to rotate otherwise could twist the springs internally. Good point.. although I g...

(Dumb question) - Should you rotate your forks?

I've often pondered this... Would it be beneficial to periodically rotate your forks in the stations, say 90 deg every few thousand miles? I'm thinking it might help to spread the wear around the bushing faces rather than it just being predominately all in one place. Go on then... let rip at me.. :)):

Re: Old analogue versus new bells and whistles.
