    I’ve closed every tab on my phone to do with it and I am letting my Nano sit in a drawer until later this year. I’m out. XD

    Scary isn't it? I've seen someone fracture a collar-bone at 3mph which was hilarious and terrifying to watch. I have no idea how some Yanks go about getting around that fear.

    ha, there's the biggest problem with leathers! I've got some nice Alpine cord stuff that does the job nicely. SO MANY VENTS.

    LOL. EU54 in Dainese fits me well. Which is good, because it's generally decent quality gear, and bad in that Dianese is a 'fashion' brand so you pay out the nose of it.
    I once rode down to the end of the road and around the corner with the chinbar still up /rebelwithoutaclue.

    LOL. I can barely be bothered to keep a single one in shape. :D

    ... and I won the other 11 too. Good lord. I *think* I will now have 40-ish boards sitting around the house, in need of repair.

    I previously thought you ran a massive computer store due to all the giveaways you use to do, this explains it, smart guy :p

    Who? Me? XD

    I don’t recall massive giveaways. :D

    I used to get a lot of hardware from vendors, but I don’t recall giving a lot away. :D

    I just did the math on what I could theoretically achieve...

    8 out of the 14 boards purchased were able to be fully restored, and I've tripled my money on those alone. Add in the other six that'll go for spares/repairs, and I'm up to 3.5x or so on my original investment before eBay takes their cut.

    1 of the 14 looked like it was brand new, in its original packaging. I put it up on eBay as untested, and it's going to fetch >$50 (that's the current bid) for that too.

    That, ladies and gentlemen, is how it is done! :D

    I don't mind buying from eBay but I hate selling anything there.That alone would put me off flipping boards on there :D

    i remember having Ebay issues with a friends mobo after some jerk tried to install a socket 1156 into a 1366 board and ended up mashing all the pins, then returned the board claiming it didnt work
    one refund later
    that was not a fun afternoon, spent with a jewllers toolset trying to bend all the pins back

    Also had issues when i purchased second hand DS game, found out it was a fake, and i couldnt complete the game
    reported it, and within 10 mins he sent me the usual 'i didnt know blah blah blah' here is a refund
