The Supervet

A lot of Great Dane owners use him as they suffer a lot with hips and bones due to size.

My old Dane had a hip replacement which cost 7.5k to put right with 12 months of weekly hydrotherapy after. Insurance is the main outlay for the giant breeds.

No wonder I'm strapped with having 2 of them !!

ER500 cooling pips

@kenner5 you could try to remove the crud / blockages from the cooling system with proprietary household sink / drain unblocking solutions. Even that world renowned product Cillit Bang is worth a try but do follow all safety notices.

As far as Radiator is concerned remove and see how much it holds, you can then try flushing it in the reverse direction of flow to see if any you get an increase in flow rate. But from what you say about the cooling system I would think a second hand radiator would be your best choice as well as a set of new coolant pipes (silicone type are a good option).

It all depends on what your budget will stretch too.

Oakley sunglasses replacement lenses.

@Nytol said:

That's superb, I've gone through loads of Oakleys due to scratched lenses and the current pair could do with replacing too :-)

No matter how hard you try to look after them and put them in that special cloth bag, they will get scratched.
I am pleased to have found these guys online and it looks like a quality product and service.
But there are other suppliers.

2015 UK MotoGP @ Silverstone

We are lucky to live within fairly easy reach of Silverstone, Santa Pod, Mallory, Avon Park, Rockingham and Donnington.

Santa Pod is my favourite though. We are drag race junkies.
Only half hour away and we get down there as often as pos.
We've made friends with people from all over the world at the Pod.
Nice bunch off maniacs!

Know where there's a 'safety camera team' in action. Share the joy here
The Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB)

A consortium of the top 20 UK insurance companies who can under the right conditions provide compensation to victims of hit and run accidents or where the other motorist is not insured.
The MIB can pay loss of earnings, personal injury and some uninsured losses if the claim is accepted and meets their rules.
They can only consider or deal with a claim through a solicitor so that's one reason why everyone should have legal cover on their bike policy.

http://www.mib.org.uk/Home/en/default.htm

I did an "untraced driver claim" after I was smacked off and left unconscious in a ditch a few years ago. Now.…. the MIB generally pay out far less than if you were claiming off another motorists policy. But it's better to have something than nothing at all. I am very glad of the MIB.
