If there's one type of build we don't see enough of, it's the 80s and 90s sport bike resto-mod. We love those endurance-style racers with their chunky bodyworkharking back to a time when motorcycles were still fairly straightforward, and technology was only on the cusp of becoming complicated. It's a style that the Wrenchmonkees have pulled off spectacularly here—except they didn't pick an older bike for their project. Instead, this wild retro is based on an even wilder donor: the supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2. The commission (and bike) came from Dutch gear manufacturer, REV'IT!. They wanted a bike that followed the same Tailored Technology' philosophy as their urban range; casual and stylish on the outside, high tech on the inside. REV'IT! already had a soft spot for the H2: their sponsored rider, Kenan Sofuoğlu, hit the 400 km/h (249 mph) mark on one just last year.

In terms of the watch Ill be using, itll be the Suunto Spartan Sport Wrist HR (I know, these product names just write themselves sometimes, right?). Its a splendid watch with one of the best wrist-based heart rate monitors Ive ever seen, although its very chunky and overly expensive. Annoyingly, I cant use the Garmin Forerunner 935 that Im currently reviewing, as Ive managed to misplace the charging cable (and again Garmin has changed the charging port so I cant use my old lead its so irritating). Its annoying as this Forerunner 935 is a brilliant watch, with phenomenal battery life I was looking forward to testing out during a marathon. Ive not charged it for nine days now, and its still on 12%. In fact, theres a small part of me that wonders if I can get to Sunday with more than 10% battery life remaining that Ill be able to the whole marathon with it.

Image 1 of 16 Image 1 of 16 26 May, 2017 4:30pm James Brodie Budget Dacia Logan MCV Stepway estate gets chunky makeover to give it pseudo-SUV look Dacia ’s reputation for no-frills motoring is maturing nicely, allowing the Renault -owned brand to add a few niche models to its all-too-sensible line-up. The latest arrival is the Logan MCV Stepway, the firm’s take on a jacked-up family estate car . It’s a cheaper alternative to the likes of the Skoda Octavia Scout and Volkswagen Golf Estate Alltrack . The Logan MCV is the second Stepway in the range. The first version now accounts for nearly 60 per cent of all Sandero sales in the UK, so Dacia has high hopes for this model. Image 2 of 16 Image 2 of 16 As ever with Dacia, the headline feature is the starting price. All cars come in high-spec Lauréate trim, and the petrol version starts at £11,495, making it less than half the price of the entry-level Octavia Scout.

The best strimmers to buy 1. Flymo Contour XT: The best cheap electric strimmer Price when reviewed: £33 If you just need a strimmer for some lightweight trimming and edging on one or two small-ish lawns, the Flymo Contour XT has you covered. With a 300W motor and a 25cm cutting width it’s cheap and light – in fact it feels lighter than the 2.8Kg weight would suggest. It also has some nice practical features, like the chunky wheel for edging, the quick swivel mechanism that takes you from trimming to edging in a few seconds, plus the plastic plant guard and the handy hooks built into the handle to wrap the 10m cable around for easy storage. It’s not the most powerful grass trimmer and certainly not built to take on larger gardens or tougher weeds, but it does a fine job of the basics and doesnt cost the Earth. Flymo Contour XT Electric Grass Trimmer and Edger 300 W - 25 cm £39.

In fact, even after preparing a roast dinner for 16 people, our hands didnt show signs of weariness or soreness and because the blade is made from Damascus steel, it will see you through year after year of vegetable prep work. It’s hand-wash only, though, and not one to use with wet hands. Buy the Le Creuset Vegetable Knife with Stainless Steel Handle Key specsType: 9cm stainless steel; Warranty: 2 years 2. Lakeland Stainless Steel Fully Forged Bread Knife: The best bread knife Price: £19 This is a great price for a strong and well-balanced bread knife. The good grip ensures that it cuts nice and straight, which makes it easy to produce everything from thin and delicate slices right through to chunky doorsteps. We found it slices through loaf after loaf without getting blunt – and that even goes for crusty white loaves with soft and airy middles.

During editing, you also get plenty of options. Frames can be copied and pasted, and audio added which intelligently plays until completion (rather than cutting off once a new frame is played), so multiple effects can be overlaid. The app perhaps stretches a little too far in claiming to offer rotoscoping that is, drawing over frames for a result akin to A Scanner Darkly due to the related tools being too basic and fiddly. But for taking your first steps towards becoming the next Aardman, Stop Motion Studio Pro fits the bill. $2.99/2.99/AU$4.49 Head back to the 1980s and pixel art was just, well, art. Computer graphics were chunky due to technological limitations, not because of the aesthetic desires of creatives. Nonetheless, for a mix of reasons nostalgia, primarily pixel art remains popular in illustration and videogames.

Chunky, jarring sneakers. Fish ties. T-shirts instead of collared shirts. One time, T-shirt and tie. But, Carlisle says, he always got back on course. A couple of points in time in our history, things got a little loose, and so there was some nudging certain folks back on course, if you will. There recently was one coach who dared to be differentbut then he, too, may have been subjected to A Nudging. That man wore not collared shirts beneath his jacket, but rather, mock turtlenecks. Then, in 2010, the NBA coaches dress code reportedly underwent an overhaul. In the overhaul, the apparent Nudge: Coaches must wear collared shirts or traditional turtlenecks under their jackets. What goes unstated, but certainly seems loud and clear: Mock turtlenecks are forbidden. Simple clarification of the dress codes original intentor nefarious targeting of a man who might have inspired others to think differently? That coach even said , if they were going to take his mock turtlenecks away, hed at least like the rule named after him.

As it is, the camera keeps many of its predecessor's tried and tested features, but offers nothing particularly new or exciting although this does mean Canon can offer the EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D at a price that should be attractive to the prospective purchasers it wants to hook. What camera should I buy? Build and handling Polycarbonate construction Design little changed from EOS Rebel T5 / EOS 1200D Weighs 485g The overall design of the EOS Rebel T6 / EOS 1300D is pretty much the same as the outgoing T5. There's a textured coating on the chunky front grip and the rear thumb rest, which helps to create an impression of quality higher than that of a typical entry-level camera, making it feel more like a mid-range Canon such as the Rebel T6i / EOS 750D . The grip itself is nicely contoured to fit your middle finger when your index finger rests on the shutter release; those with larger hands may find it a little less comfortable to hold, though.

The Moto G4 Plus features a fingerprint scanner on the front, although the square bezel housing the sensor does not act as a home button. Motorola has opted for capacitive buttons for home, back and recent apps. This feels rather unnatural and takes some time getting used to, as out of habit, I kept hitting the fingerprint scanner in order to go home. However, it is great to see how fingerprint sensors, from being a luxury on flagships a year ago, are slowly becoming a mainstay, even at the budget price point. In a departure from previous Moto G generations, which were always a bit chunky and thick, the Moto G4 Plus is rather thin at just 7.7 mm and weighs a reasonable 154 grams. The device has a microUSB 2.0 port on the bottom, the headphone jack on top, power and volume keys on the left, the 13MP rear camera along with the dual LED flash and secondary noise cancelling microphone on the rear, with the fingerprint sensor, primary microphone, 5MP front camera, light and proximity sensors and the earpiece on the front.

Vauxhall is keen to place an SUV slant on its new car, hence the Mokka X inspired face, chunky, cladded wheel arches and raised ride height. LED daytime running lights are standard, as are alloy wheels. This new car gets PSA Group underpinnings too, using a modified Peugeot 2008 platform. Some MPV influences are still evident, though, particularly at the rear. That’s because the Crossland X is positioned as a more versatile and practical proposition than other B-segment crossovers, and as such, the exterior shape is dictated by space requirements in the cabin. With the wheels pushed right out to the corners, plus that tall, boxy roofline and a steeply raked windscreen stretching far out in front of the dashboard, the Crossland X feels very spacious and airy inside. You can make the cabin even brighter with an optional fixed panoramic glass roof, but it is an expensive extra at £695.

Theres also the fact that a more premium material like glass or aluminium might have been a better, albeit more expensive, option. The Apricorn Aegis Secure Key cuts a familiar figure; it does look a lot like the iStorage one but has 60x more capacity while costing about five times more. Comparing it to other secure USB drives, it does come across as being a bit of a bargain if you want to store massive amounts of data although it costs around three times the cheapest 512GB USB drive. The USB drive itself incorporates a full 10-key alphanumeric keypad with two function keys plus three status lights. It then slots into a hardened epoxy-potted rugged aluminum enclosure which makes it dust and waterproof; the device is also certified IP-58 and at 46g and 93mm long is fairly chunky, putting a bigger strain on a devices USB port than most USB drives.

Its by no means ugly, but when you hold it up against its all-metal-and-glass rivals, the chunky bezels and plastic sides dont quite match up. The 4K HDR screen is incredible when you find some 4K content to play on it, but for the time being at least theres still only a handful movies and shows at this resolution. Unless youre someone with a passion for 4K, youll be more than content with the QHD (2K) screens you get on the rival Android flagships. Who's it for? If youre in the market for a high-end smartphone then the Sony Xperia XZ Premium needs to be on your shortlist. It has everything youd want when paying top dollar for your tech, with its 4K display and slow motion camera two party pieces you can impress your friends with. Design and style are a matter of opinion, and while Sonys more industrial design language doesnt quite dazzle in the way the Infinity Display of the Galaxy S8 does, it does have a core of fans who enjoy the no-nonsense approach.

(BANGKOK) A morbidly obese wild monkey who gorged himself on junk food and soda left behind by tourists has been rescued and placed on a strict diet of lean protein, fruits and vegetables. Wildlife officials caught the chunky monkey nicknamed Uncle Fat by locals after photos of the animal started circulating on social media last month. Wild monkeys roam free in many parts of Thailand, attracting tourists who feed and play with the animals. Most of the monkeys are macaques like Uncle Fat, and they typically weigh around 9 kilograms (20 pounds). Uncle Fat weighs three times that, tipping the scales at around 26 kilograms (60 pounds). It was not easy to catch him, said Kacha Phukem, the wildlife official who conducted the capture and rescue on April 27. He was the leader of his pack, and when I tried to go in, I had to fight off a flock of them with sticks.
