two out of three aint bad

Shopping alerts -

Heres some stuff I spotted - and I get no commission from mentioning these but I just wanna give fellow bikers the heads up when I spot stuff that seems good value/deals.

M & P Direct are giving a free pair of Sonic Gloves(worth £29.99)when you buy an MT Falcon Helmet for £49.99 - and have also reduced their carriage charges !

More when I see them !

Car dealers ?

If like me you have had dealings with car dealers over the years you know that it's hard to find one that (a) tells the truth(b) gives a good deal and (C) knows what service is. you know what I mean, " long MOT" and then when you get to the car it has 2 months MOT to run........the sales guy then says when questioned ....." oh yeah it did have a long MOT when I first advertised it " ... ? ! ?
Well I believe in giving credit where credit is due and I wanna just say my recent dealings with
Dace Motor company in Stockport ( yeah a real trek for me coming up from London !) were DIFFERENT ! - in fact a pleasure. Lots of great cars on their forecourt, all ex main dealer vehicles with genuine low mileages,Got a good deal , No B.S - properly trained/experienced salesman (Ray) and a great business manager(Christian). Everything was as described and the forecourt price was as stated. The whole transaction was Smoooooooooth and I drove away very happy. So if you looking for a good, honest deal go visit or give em a bell ! - you know it makes sense.

if it aint broke !

Why am I selling such a great seat ?
well, as anyone will tell you, I am of the old school Biker breed that believes " if it aint broke don't fix it", but after 5 years on my custom sportster I had to face it that the stuffing coming out of the cracked vinyl of the sportster seat like a mouse infested matress was beginning to bug me. So I go on ebay and bid on several seats but could not get one at a decent price ( 'schill' bidding and over-optomistic Harley owners ?).
I eventually manage to get one at a decent price and yep 100% condition, like new. BUT the Harley tradition of slightly altering the oddest aspects and specs on their models meant it does'nt fit my model and year !. Sods law ! So - its up for sale with a buy iy now of the price I paid. And My bike still has the stuffing hanging out until I sell that one and get another that does fit !
Or maybe I'll win the Lottery...........................But I won't let it change my life ......... HaHa ! BullSh*T! of course I'll let it totally change me ! haha!
