Brum/London Bike Shows - opinions?

NEC is an easy fix:

Running between the International Airport, International railway station and key locations all around the car and coach parks.......build a new fully automated transport system connecting everything to everything and make the mono rail drop off right in the middle of the central concours of the NEC.
It would rise up and over the old main entrance giving superb views over the whole place and then drop down into the main hub inside the NEC. Could be a hanging carraige aka ski lift type of design.
Anyone remember the Maglev that wasnt built?

Also provide proper covered, heated and brightly lit walkways down the spine of each car park to the monorail (or similar) stations.

Also provide motorised transport within the NEC central area. Could be golf type buggies or an electric "train"
All nicely logo'd corporate stylee.

Do a makeover on that smack ugly rail station too !

That would be a winner for the NEC that London couldnt match.

Helmet Camera

@shaunthesheep52
You ain't obviously seen my ol' witch cos then you'd realise it's not good to look at her from a distance never mind up close on the rare occasion we're bumping uglies.
So definitely not wanting to watch any re-run of that very short film.
Remember guys , it's a race and there's no points for coming second.

new rider help

Don't get me wrong you will not get blistering pace off it but one of my kids rides one daily and will not be parted from the bike even when we offer the keys to mums car. It's a single cylinder thumping engine that will chug along all day between 60 and 70 mph. It has just been MOT'd with no issues so for 3 year old bike it is wearing well.

The stator coils and/or the spinning magnets.
Problem is I doubt you can find (buy) such upgrade parts.
As suggested, you should confirm proper operation of the stock charging system and battery.
Unless you have "upgraded" your lighting or added other power consumers, your stock system should support your battery just fine. 25 more cc shouldn't cause an issue, but honestly I don't know anything about your specific bike, just spouting general stuff.
And, I think your thread is in the wrong hopper.

I believe the bike is a version of this: http://www.derbi.com/uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=182&Itemid=320

And yes, you are more likely to see a Desmosedici RR in your neighborhood than a Derbi Senda.
