Crap Weather, Road Salt and Fooking Pot Holes



  • Now i never really complain but the roads around my area are like really shite since this cold spell started, the local road twats have over salted the roads causing them to POTHOLE everywhere… In addition thanks to the nice people putting such copious amounts of salt down ive now discovered Poor Wes has the dreaded TIM WORM, He was mint until all this salt crap got put down, everytime theres a little rain and i have to take wes out when it drys i see salt deposits on him...
    ref the potholes its like a drive on the bumpercars im all over the place trying to avoid them...

    Whats all your areas like all.... :roll: :roll:

    Rainy... :cry:



  • Yep pretty damn bad round here too, had a couple of real clangers that i went into when driving to work in the dark :(

    Thinking about jetwashing the underside once its all cleared a bit and applying
    liberal coatings of waxoil!



  • Pot holes are a real problem around my way, i guess my garage has changed between 15 - 20 tyres since Christmas due to them.



  • the salt is bad for us bikers as it gets pushed to where we ride by cars and such. my bike is coated with acf50 so thats ok with rot. but start to lean the bike over and its like riding on ice. car doesn't move much at mo so thats rot free too. potholes are a real pain in the car.
    i was at a bike meet in london yesterday where i was vested (yay) and the roads are so bad you have to use the term "roads" loosely

  • Potholes are bad on the island, hit a massive one a couple of weeks ago in my bmw, fucked both my 18" alpina wheels and tyres, currently putting a claim in against the council, nearly 2k of damage :shock: Over £650 for each wheel :shock:



  • did you take pix of the hole and damage to the wheels as they have a habit of going and fixing them. then saying you have no proof it was there. good luck with it tho.



  • congrats fella nice to be vested…i remember mine way back when lol...was with Iron Masters mc..

    Yeah took photos of damage and pothole, lucky I did as they filled it in next day! Went to ATS and got wheels checked out, front tyre was hanging off rim by the time I got there! LOL, got standard 15" wheels on at the moment :(
