Re: I've been out test riding new adventure bikes, 5 so far...!

Quite a good, real world review 8-) . It's not though, is it? The bloke takes a loaner out for a morning - no idea what it's like to live with it, offroad or tour with it. I find his "reviews" to be as much use as reading the specs at the back of Bike magazine. Nice enough chap, totally superfluous.

Re: Motorcycle Dashcam

In two minds about dash cam footage, but I guess it's inevitable that this was the way it was going to go.

How long until we are all compelled to have rolling video records of our driving/riding?

Re: Finance's on your travels

We had a preloaded card for America a couple of years ago and had 2 problems .....1) not everywhere accepted that card and 2) some hotels charged a deposit which is refunded 10 days later which meant we ran out of credit on that card and when it was refunded we were already back home ...... feckin ...

Re: New ABR Website and Forum

I don't like people's sigs that cover half a screen, especially when they multiple post in threads.

Attempting to turn off sigs gave me this...

Re: Watch the motorway bridges

Once, my wife wondered why I pulled into the hard shoulder after we left the ferry at Portsmouth - whatever had been dropped on me broke a toe on my left foot.

I pick a lane not under people these days, but that's hard when you can't see the other side of the bridge.

Re: Yamaha XT 600 E Thread
