Hi guy's I just thought I would pop in an say hello again. Healthwise not too bad for an oldie. Still got the Beemer and loving it almost as much as I did the Mondy--------almost!   I don't do much mileage these days but since the car manual say's in so many words I should give it the beans now and again just to take care of the DPF I naturally comply----officer. :}  :}

 

I've tried to find the old joke thread I started years ago but I can'tm so I've posted one I received a few days ago by email on here.

 

There's a lot of truth in it but for a car buff there is something missing. Can you see what it should be?  

Enjoy.  :banana:

I think the EGR is at fault 😂

Very droll Teri I love it. But wrong answer.  :}  :}  :} 

Come on mate it's simple. A clue-----you'll never make a RAC or AA man if you don't do this first!  Tee Hee :banana:

She doesn't say what type of car it is, definitely not an ST as you wouldn't let the wife use it.

That's very true LOL but the type of car doesn't matter so long as it's not electric. Come on lads thinking caps on. Remember the car stalls after being driven a short distance. Would you do just the checks mentioned in the joke. Or would you tackle the problem in a slightly different way? Is there something else you should do? Think of yourselves as being RAC or AA patrols. :kaffeetrinker_2:  :banana:  :banana:

Had to use this old site yesterday, as my ST220 put up the orange engine light on the dash!

Was the breather pipe to back of intake manifold, the usual suspect. Car still great, still only done under 60,000, and still never goes out in the wet! 

Hope everyone keeping well regarding the present situation, and nice to know that you Peter and yourself Rick are still around. Been a while since i have seen either of you.

Stay well, keep sare, all the best Andy (Catman).

It's still a handy source of information to those of us doggedly hanging on to our older STs.

With the difficult situation at the moment I thought I would look up the forum that was so helpful when i bought my ST220 at Christmas 2008. It is good to see some off the names still on here from back then.

I still have my 54 plate magnum grey saloon,i bought it off of the first owner with 38,000 on the clock and it now has 81,000 so that's 43,000 miles in 12 years.So I have averaged 3400 mls a year which low as I have been restoring (and riding)some 1970s two stroke motorcycles which keep me happy tinkering.

The ST220 has been a pleasure to own and apart from servicing,tyres and getting the wheels refurbed a couple of times she owes me nothing and still lurks about being stealthy just in case some off the local boyracers get out of line  :} .I cannot see how to attach pictures or I would put some up to date pics in my post.

 

Great to see the old forum still going.  :L

I remember going on the back of a YR5 in the '80s and it felt like a rocketship to a 20 year old.
I've had loads of bikes over the years - all now classics to whoever now owns them. XT500s, XT550s, IT465, XS1100s, CB900, FZ600 & 750, GPz1100 etc. I still have a 30yr old VFR750 which I've had for 22 years which I'll never sell.
