Today I used the forum ignore button for the first time and it works.
Strangely enough your not the only member to have used that this week!!
Sometimes wish I could use it too 🤔

What do you do when you've finished your ride and they're caked in mud?

I really want a sort of bike bag, I can't find such a thing though. Like a bigger version of my stuff sack for my paraglider with a chunky drawstring to keep all the muck inside.

Yikes, that costs almost as much as my bike did.

Did a little more digging and found this. £12 big ass plastic bag, will give those a go for now.

Does it just turn off notifications (likes and replies) from a particular user or does it hide them completely? The ability to make people disappear could be very tempting.

It's like they don't exist. If only the rest of life was so simple.

I have a waterproof motorbike cover which I just throw in the back if the bikes are wet and muddy. Works fine and is nice and simple.

Karcher do a portable and battery operated washers, you just need a supply of water or to take some with you.

Been putting off doing my dash bulbs due to flickering leds and they finally packed in this morning and couldn't see my dash on the way to work so I've ordered some standard t10s and as a bonus I found blue ones which I couldn't find any before 😃

Driving back from work noticed my N/S wiper blade starting to come apart, looks like I will be shopping for some over the weekend, does anyone know the lengths of the blades off the top of their heads. I will probably go for the BOSH areotwin style.
