Re: Morocco Entry Procedure

Spent the best part of a day sitting at that border thanks to some 'improvised paperwork' regarding another vehicle , ahem. There was an impounded estate car full of leaky 55 gal drums of smuggled petrol. They could not open the doors in case the courtesy light switch sparked and blew it up. I've no...

Re: falco mx boots enduro sole

If there is a decent horse saddlemaker locally, you may be able to get them stitched up again. Here in Cornwall, the local saddlemaker says he often conducts ride-in, ride-out running repairs for touring motorcyclists on holiday. Saddlemakers can cope with thick leather and have long-nose sewing mac...

Re: Noisy Bikes / Police "Crack Down"

Too right. I once watched a TV programme about an August Bank Holiday motorcycle run from London to Brighton. So, you've got all these poor sods who have to ride in London traffic all day, every day. then, it's bank holiday...they could go anywhere, but they get together and create a special traffic...
