    Try the A44 towards Leominster. Pretty good, easily falls into the "twisites" category.

    Artic or Arctic

    Artic roll? Ice cream surrounded by jam and sponge? A blast from the past.

    Defection - the dark side

    Hippychick maybe my underperforming 172 has given me a false sense of a CTRs abilities? Did you have the hand brake on or something?

    Defection - the dark side

    Tom satin silver. Have only driven approx 50 miles in it so far but compared to the 172 it feels alive. Like a terrier on a lead at the entrance to a rabbit warren. It just wants to go. Im even surprised by the way it pulls even before you enter the VTEC zone. Also way more solid and quite...

    Defection - the dark side

    After my bitter disappointment on the PE rollers the 172 just had to go. Drastic, maybe - but hey what the hell. So Ive gone and done it and bought a VTEC bread van! Yes A CTR. Please feel free to stop me on my rounds. If you require anything extra (ladies) please leave me a note. Also...

    Where can I get a Magnex fitted (worcs)

    Mortster I also live in Worcester but made the trip to DT. Itll take you a couple of hours to get there but the return journey will be much more fun!

    Green filter - my opinion

    Green replacement element £32 from Demon Tweeks. Would agree with Bike Man - seems to rev more freely.

    Magnex being fitted!!!

    172 gal got mine fitted 2 weeks ago. Full CAT back with the monster 6 x 4 pipe. Sounds excellent at idle and when cruising slowly. However be prepared to put up with quite a bit of boom at 80mph until it beds in. Telford Mike reckons on about 2000 miles! Keep the ear plugs to hand.
