Ordered one yesterday afternoon from the Tunbridge Well branch, went to collect it today and they said that the stock was wrong and they didn’t have the lock, but they kindly gave me a Magnumplus Goliath 1.1 which is a better version. I didn’t even have to ask, they just offered the better one straight away and said “Is this one OK?”, I almost laughed when I said “Yeah, It’ll do”. Halfords £10 bargain.
Stock available in Scarborough
I agree, nothing can deter a professional thief. Those that drive around in vans looking for motorcycles, mopeds and expensive pushbikes have all the tools (and weapons) they need on board. The problem with the UK is that the penalties aren't severe enough. Also bystanders won't challenge for fear of getting stabbed.
Good price, but as usual with Halfords, no stock
When you have a 22mm chain for home a 16mm chain is relatively light! I use a kriega tail pack to store all my security. I bought it a few years back, the 22mm is overkill, but my motorcycle is very visible and as a chain should never break it is an investment well worth it IMO. Especially as I never remove it from the ground anchor. Having one chain always in the tail is very convenient.
Just picked up the second part of my order with the YT7B battery and it was activated on 11/2020. Quick multimeter check shows 12.77 out of the box. I've put it on my smart charger to get it topped up.
Mine too. Was at 10.1volts. Is now on charge. Only need it for the Chinese diesel heater in the garage.
Id have been happy at 6.5V.. This is the 53030 I picked up in Sheffield (Crystal Peaks).. Activated 06/2019 and box still sealed so never been charged since. I've got a dumb charger, so itll happily charge this.. but I assume its not going to help.. Ill see what happens and return if needed.
Got mine up to 12.7/ 12.8, now to see if it holds!

RST gear is now CE certified where applicable which means it's triple stitched on the seams and passes abrasion testing. 'AAA' being the best down to 'A'. Their old gear might not have been great but anything made in the last 3 - 5 years is very good. Some of the premium brands are terrible so it pays to do a little research.
I’ve got a full RST setup (pants/jacket/gloves/shoes). Absolutely love it. Only criticism (as with most leathers i guess) is that it’s very heavy. Other than that, the quality is excellent for a very fair price if you can get the stuff on offer. Just need to find a quiet lid now!
Yeah, well some of the premium brands aren't that good. I'd not usually touch RST after seeing several sets fail badly in crashes - I've an old pair of their leathers and I'd sooner crash in jeans... But at this price point, especially with level 2 hip armour, there isn't much 'branded' gear that can compete. So worthy of heat I reckon.
Just as good as the premium brands without the price tag.
Nothing to see here move along .....Lockdown waisters ..... ;)
Does anyone know if this code ends in the next hour, or will it still be active throughout 1st Feb until midnight?
I would also like to know this too. I have the BLC which gives me discount in the store too, I would click & collect online and then pay in store and get the discount. It want's me to pay fully online now.
Will go into Halfords tomorrow and order use AA card first then apply Halfords discount code
Genuine question - how did you get the AA discount if you've already paid online, do they refund you 10%? With offers like this I used to reserve things online but then pay instore when I collected the item but that option no longer seems to exist, they now want payment when you place the order.

That's just what we need, more people unemployed. I'd rather pay the RRP if it keeps others in work. Including yourself, why would anyone wish someone's job to be lost.
Most of what you just said I covered with them being "convenient" and is the main reason they do good business, that and they have a monopoly on certain walk in off the shelf auto parts when people need them immediately. None of these changes the fact their prices are way higher than a motorfactors, or online retailers. Anyone that willingly shops in there for car related parts is either doing it out of necessity or really aren't a savvy a shopper as they believe. Edit: Just for arguments sake I went onto their website and clicked on batteries, the very first option was the Yuasa HSB075 for £110. Interestingly I could only find that model being sold at Halfords but a quick Google told me that it's the same battery as YBX5075 which retails elsewhere for under £60. That's an interesting business model they have right there, and a healthy mark up. No wonder they "do well".
all good, and helps
Amazon.com, has anybody on here heard of it? They have these prices all year round. Merry Xmas.

Black Raw Motocross Gloves £7.95 / Black Echo Leather Motorcycle Gloves £11.24 delivered using code @ Ghostbikes (see thread for links)£7.95 Free P&P FreeGhost Bikes Deals
I've been using one of these for truing spoked wheels, the only problem is the shaft can drift sideways and fall. I fitted some alloy angle to fix this
I just bang mine on axle stands and put the rear axle bolt through the wheel, seems to do the trick ok!
Good choice my go to as well
No it's easy, spin the wheel on it and if it has a heavy spot it'll drop to the bottom, put a weight on the top of the inside of the rim and spin again until it gets rid of imbalances. It's good if you can be bothered to change the tyre too. I had one of these, got sick of it after a few uses, ended up damaging my rims changing them with them being so soft.
No, that's just the same place selling the same item, a like for like comparison is the same item - apart from the base being painted black please tell me what's different? Same Chinese factory, different paint - as far as i can see

The Incredibles 2: Elastigirl on Elasticycle Pop! Ride Vinyl Figure £5.19 at Rarewaves£5.19 Free P&P FreeRarewaves Deals
I noticed there is a slightly better price for this on Rarewaves (sorry). Not a bad price if you were after this particular Pop! vinyl figure.
That will be a waste of money,you will need to keep the vents open and the visor up,unless you can walk with 20-30 mph minimum
i don't have a bike but for covid safety might get one anyway just to wear walking round town
Arai designed their round shape to glance off impacts- integrated visors (or rather the controls and buttons for these) create catch points. All the vents etc are designed to break off rather than catch on these.
Thanks. You're right on the helmet, I have been very conscious of having safe riding gear and got some quite high viz stuff but I stupidly went for a black helmet. I think I'll put some reflective stickers on then go for white on my next helmet. Been driving a car for 15 years and have always been quite active in the way I drive, no distractions in the car and anticipating the worst that others might do. But also well aware that anything can happen no matter how clever you think you are.
Not sure, they say it just compromises the safety of their helmet. It was a statement they made over 2 years ago in regards to multiple enquiries as to why they hadn't done it yet. Arguably some of the best helmers on the market but it's the only thing stopping a purchase by a glasses wearer like me

Motorcycle Black Pro Range Evo Rear Paddock Stand (B5163 with Rubber Cradle Cup Adaptors) £26.59 with code @ Ghost Bikes£26.59£39.9934% off Free P&P FreeGhost Bikes Deals
You see why I got a little confused... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/beats-x-wireless-bluetooth-headphones-black-3600840?utm_source=mappshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=3600840
Aka walking frame for a midget
Headphones with wheels!
Good price, but. The wheels on that are quite large compared to most paddock stands, given that the lever is quite short I wonder how much force is needed to lift a heavy (say 225kg) bike? Also, said wheels look as though they have plastic spokes, same question as to suitability for a heavy bike. I have 2 old stands with solid wheels, they take quite a bit of strain in use. Still hot mind.
I thought it was a scooter for twins!

It says nothing about the mount needed to fix this to the bike. Which obviously needs to be factored in when thinking about price. In the picture it looks like a Givi mount. Though £19.99 is a cheap price, how secure and water resistant will this be?
