    [–] Guess this is the view for the next few months then. Rain. Cold. Sleet, spray. Salt. Hates_ 1 points ago in MotoUK

    Yeah. It’s fine when free flowing, but filtering when all the traffic is slow moving can be hairy.

    It’s not the cold or wet that puts me off its riding down the unlit stretches of dual carriage way. You’re just another light in people’s mirrors so drivers have no clue you’re there.

    [–] Motorbiking to Paris Hates_ 1 points ago in MotoUK

    Do it. Come out of Calais and follow the D940 down the coast. Stunning road.

    I paid £33 for a day trip on a Saturday in September.

    [–] Rails server wont run and I get error with “Rails sever” command (Warning: Ruby on rails noobie) Hates_ 4 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in rails

    Looks like the ‘activerecord-sqlserver-adapter’ gem might be really out of date. ‘alias_method_chain’ has been removed AFAIK.

    [–] Super Duke GT as city bike for tall-ish dude? Hates_ 1 points ago in KTM

    I’m 6’1” and think my frame suits the SDR well. The look of the GT swallows the rider a bit. The SDR is super comfy as too, and that’s after trading in an R1200gS LC for it.

    Perhaps an anti pinch pin would work. One thing to keep in mind is the seat doesn’t lock on the 690. Not a huge problem as most people wouldn’t know how to get the seat off anyways.

    [–] How to switch to normal edit mode in IDE? Hates_ 3 points ago in IntelliJIDEA

    You could disable/uninstall the IdeaVim plugin.

    [–] My commute this morning... Hates_ 8 points ago in MotoUK

    Surprised by some of the comments saying this is too fast for filtering. To me it seems rare to find someone not going those speeds while filtering on any of the dual carriage ways going in or out of London.

    [–] Keeping it in the family Hates_ 2 points ago in KTM

    Haha it’s a joke subreddit about a project everyone at work hates.

    [–] Can't remove catalytic converter from Akrapoviç slip on... Hates_ 0 points ago in supermoto

    The full Akro exhaust is probably what you need to achieve that mental bark.

    [–] Questions about KTM 690 Hates_ 1 points ago in supermoto

    Loved my ‘14 690 SMCR. Rekindled my love for riding.

    [–] SMC 690 - Night Time in Tokyo (pic) Hates_ 1 points ago in KTM

    Yes definitely. In hindsight I should have got the 690 Enduro and an extra set of SM wheels. I was going to switch to the 701 Enduro but family life put adventure rising on hold so I got the 1290 SDR instead.

    [–] SMC 690 - Night Time in Tokyo (pic) Hates_ 1 points ago in KTM

    I loved my 690 SMCR. Always a thrill to ride and just egged you on to wring it’s neck.

    [–] Z1000 VS CB1000R? Hates_ 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago) in MotoUK

    I'd definitely consider alternative super nakeds like the 1290 SDR, S1000R, MT10 and Speed Triple.

    [–] Differences between bike types? Hates_ 6 points ago in MotoUK

    The difference between the types is they’re all geared towards different types of riding and will be compromised in some way when not in their natural habitat or ridden differently to what their geared towards.

    There’s no best at everything. My BMW GS handled great, was planted and great in bad conditions but was a pain getting round London traffic. My KTM 690 was brilliant for city ridding but was horrible on the motorways. Most bikes will be a compromise in some respect. You just have to decide what aspects are most important them go from there.

    [–] Screw-type ground anchors Hates_ 10 points ago in MotoUK

    Another option I’ve heard is to fill a bucket with concrete and put your ground anchor in that.

    Think I'll have to wait until I get home so I can get the tape measure out 👍

    CARPREP

    Ah, seems the code is PREPCAR not CARPREP :P

    [–] Discount at ghostbikes ebay Hates_ 1 points ago in MotoUK

    Seems the code doesn't work anymore :( Thought I could nab a good discount on an Alpinestars Jacket.
