Ya know what I hate?
« on: 20.05. 2013 08:18 »
When you have BSA A10 in titles and description as a saved search in ebay and you get 500 entries for USA seller mirrors, blinkers and hand grips.
That's just one. More will follow.

 I agree, even if Baden-Powell is in my family tree, but I don't mind the BSA gun parts  *evil*.

goto "advanced " (to the right of the big blue "Search" button)

and in the box below
Exclude words from your search
enter
rifles, boy scouts, guns, Bantam, Norton, 

or whatever
I used to have "Alloys" in there as well but they don't come up as often now
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

Or, how about: BSA, NOT NORTON, NOT TRIUMPH, NOT MATCHLESS, etc and "Very rare old sprockle valve AJS, BSA, TRIUMPH" there are lots of chancers and wide boys out there hawking rare and valuable parts for BSA Bonnevilles, and Triumph Gold Stars!!

I hate those groups that frequent jumbles pointing at bikes picking out the non standard parts, they always hunt in packs as they are brave enough to say it out loud in front of the owner. Then they drive home in their Mondeo wearing their bike clothes.. *smile*

I hate having smoke coming out of the left pot,
Taking the top of, finding out one ring has gone to smithereens
Taking pistons of, finding out one gudgeon pin bush is totally loose and can be pushed out with a finger,
And the other one is not loose but has turned, so no oil feed...
And finally starting to wonder where the small missing parts of the broken ring has gone...

When I'm finished crying into my beer I wil start pulling everything apart - no more driving and happy smiles this season... *problem*
