Re: ABR mag

I cancelled my subscription with ABR magazine, I just find that a lot of stuff and bikes in it are to expensive for the average person to buy.... I would prefer to see a more realistic world 👍...... All the best for 2020🍻🍻👍🤙🤙 Good post. This is why I stopped buying bike mags. I used to, at one time...

By the way, Harvey, I know exactly where you've taken your map screen shot from. :)

Re: Riding in mud!

I've done a fair bit of off-road riding, but would never consider myself confident on loose ground. As soon as the wheels go sideways as well as forward, that's when I get all nervous, slow down and slip around a bit. If you recognise this behaviour, then tyres may help. I'm currently using Pirelli ...

Re: Heated Waistcoats, but not 12V

I have a Keis body warmer which works plugged into the bike.

You can also buy a battery pack for use out and about without a power supply. Is that the kind of thing you're after?

Re: OS Mapping question

I'm with you Harv, I've aways avoided the dots routes, however, I've been taken along routes with the dots, and have also noticed that parts of the TET in the UK follow the dotted routes, so I'm now assuming that unless signposted closed, that they're rideable. Let me know if you want to go and chec...

Re: Beta Alp 200

Check that the fuel pipe from the tank to the carb is decent quality. On my Alp 4.0 if you folded it 6 times it broke in two. Worth replacing with quality pipe if this hasn't been done already. Also, some suggest changing the gear lever to a Suzuki one as the Beta one may snap if hit, rather than be...

Re: Knox clothing

I have the Knox Action shirt which has back, shoulder and elbow protection. It's quite heavy but once on you don't notice it. Wore it for about 9 days in a row and it was extremely comfortable. Just about to wear it for 14 days in a row. It's a great bit of kit, and you can separately purchase the c...
