Bit of an oxymoron there Major.

I've heard that the one litre three-pot turbo is the best engine in the Fiesta.

I assume it is a much better engine than the three cylinder 1000cc ones they put in little peugeot 107 / Toyota Aygo cars. The Aygo I have occasionally been a passenger in sounds terrible and has no power - though it may just be knackered. :):

Someone else has told me about the 3 pot turbo as well, Diablo, thanks.

What was I pissing other drivers on in the mid 80's. Ah, yes, one of these (blue, red and and white though, not hammerite :D )

[Link To Youtube Video]


I saw 150 (mph) on the clock down the M20 but throttled off as I was taking up three lanes trying to find the right line for the next fucking bend. Top whack was supposedly about 10mph more without breakfast.

Very nice CH....

But its a bike! AKA a vibrator for lesser endowed gentlemen.

How pleased would your date be being 'picked up' on a crotch rocket for a nice meal out? Not muchly! (unless its lord chins) The only bike that a female would be impressed at being picked up on would be a Glide, for obvious reasons! :D

If we are in 'boasting about speed' mode then the best I can do is an indicated 135mph on the M6 heading towards Carlisle in a Laguna I once had - was passing Porches like they were standing still. I'd just bought it and was seeing what it could do. Never had a bike that would do more than 110.

Though back in the real world I rather doubt that the major is looking to do a Mr Toad and terrify other road users with his fast driving. Poop-poop!

As such, the Fiesta, although it wouldn't be my choice, will do the job pretty well for his needs. :)

Is that a Yorkie in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me ? :hyenas:

People buy Glides for three reasons

1) They have more money than sense.
2) They like looking at themselves in shop windows,
3)They get off on believing other guys like looking at them as they ride past shop windows, though all they are doing is identifying which particular bag of nails the guy with more money than sense has been duped into buying.
