Re: Creepy things you've seen while riding

My late father was a practical no nonsense sort of chap and spent much of his career involved with old buildings, he never felt, heard or experienced anything odd in all those years, though he told me several times about an evening in the mid 50's riding his very unreliable motorbike home from work ...

I had to call them a couple of years ago when my car dumped hal...

Re: Merc driver needs his license taking away

I would just like to point out that this video is not me, nor do I know the riders involved, but thought it was an example of a scenario we have all experienced. I agree with several of you in so far as the best thing to do is take a deep breath and carry on..... Or at least that's what I would do t...

Re: Sorry Newbie Insurance Question (I did search honest)...

I also use Principal Insurance, I have my road bike and dirt bike both on the same policy, pretty good price and they specialise in modified bikes which is why I was drawn to them.
Certainly worth an enquiry.

Re: ABR Midlands Rally 2017 sign up thread (7th-9th July)
