    It's with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, doing server side IT support. It's only just down the road from me as well which would be handy, I could ride to work.

    I save well over 50 a month from cycling. And that's when compared to travelling on the peasant wagon.

    I save around £100 a month at the moment, and am really enjoying cycling. Doing the Londo to Cambridge bike ride in 3 weeks time!

    Of course, I don't actually save any money as I spend it all on my bikes again, lol. But, it's money i'd probably want to spend anyway so it's all good. Plus, it saves me getting a gym membership also. And I have a great farmers tan, lol.

    I had to resist buying a new bike with my saved money. I thought "what's the point, there's nothing wrong with my current bike" but it's so easy to spend money that you save

    I know! My old bike died so I started searching eBay for a cheap replacement. I ended up building my own and spending nearly £400. It does make me smile whenever I ride it though.

    Welly, that's a fair whack of money! I hope I can always cycle to work.

    One downside is racing other commuters though. I can't not race them, it's just a built in instinct to catch them. I almost threw up last week as I cycled so hard to catch someone. I did it though, and destroyed him.

    Been playing it on the android and other games by the same company.
    Its a good game but annoys me that you need to really pay them to progress further in the game or get good weapons or just keep playing the simple little missions to earn money.
    So I stopped and went back to stupid zombies. lol

    Oooooh, now that's a thought...

    I did sell the two I had, both at a substantial profit.... However I could be tempted to buy another.

    I would have to get a Raptor 700R this time though. No buggering about.

    I only want spacers for the back if I'm honest anyway...

    Jojo's new mtm's are 8.5 wide like my new 'uns and with 10mm's at the front and 15's on the rears his looks good so I shall follow suit.

    My front tyres are down to the wear marker and one of my rears has a screw in it, lol, so I need to have everything ready so I can just stick 'em on.

    Jojo if your reading are you running 225/40's?
