That's a straw man argument.

You don't have to play the game if you don't want to
but then you aren't allowed to be amused by any registration plates.
Or if you do, then you should read 0 as O, 1 as I, 2 as Z, 3 as B, 4 as
A, 5 as S, 6 as G, 7 as T, 8 as B and 9 as G.
And various others if the owner misplaces the number plate bolts
(There are a whole lot of '11' numbers unavailable because the DVLA
thinks people will turn 11 into U).

And I think it will be amusing when my ex posts photos of herself on it
to her lesbian friends, some of whom will know the word.

A T-handle helps so you are only applying a torque and no lateral force.
Or just hold both ends while undoing it.

In a converted classroom; though our tape decks were in clusters of 6, and =
looked higher-spec (vacuum buffers, as well as the mechanical ones).

If you ask really nicely, I'll explain how that console (where the operator=

I'd go with Teng also.

But considering Allen socket screws, they are the work of the devil. Torx
bits hammered into them is the best way of dealing with a stubborn Allen
socket.

ooooh, I did not know these existed - so you can just buy bends in a
range of curves and sizes?

What's a TRBADE, short for Terrabaude?

That's no more "tribade" than AI11EEN is Aileen.

How much do you want to spend?

If I were in your boat I'd seriously think about just getting some
bends and welding something up. For a twin (especially if you want a
2-2 its a piece of piss.

http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/page-view/tech_custom_triumph_motorcycle_exhaust/

shows how it is done for a Triumph and I suspect a Superdream exhaust
would be similar. If you want cheap mig welded mild steel bends and
ceramic coat would be my choice (because I hate chrome and pipewrap)

Otherwise if you want stainless you can bet the bends easily enough
but you'd probably want to TIG it. If I went down this route I'd get
the guy two workshops down to sort me out. I could have a word if you
would be prepared to bring the bike t 'Nam.

If you just want to throw money at it the guys at co-built would do
something that would make the rest of the bike look like a turd....

Well, actually it isn't, because in the new format, the position on the
grid (first half or last half) is determined by FP times, so if someone
comes off in FP2 and misses the only dry FP session it can make as big a
difference to their grid position as QP.

If I posted a thread titled "oh my back aches" as soon as qualifying was
over, and then the first line of my post was "because I was loading a skip
before watching Stoner take Pole position a surprise comeback filling in
for the injured Lorenzo" then anyone who hadn't watched qualifying yet
might be miffed.

But hey, it's only qualifying. Lorenzo's grid position was determined by
his FP incident.

Don't need to keep it quiet, just alert people.

Paul
