Re: Seat rebuild

Sussex Motorcycles reupholstered my BMW R1200C seat. Memory foam and a new cover. Great job. The seat was 17 years old, as was the bike, I bought it new in 2000. The new seat made it all so nice and comfortable.

Try www.tourinsure.de they cover situations like this. I have had friends from outside EU come in to use bikes and they but a green card. Not sure though if it works for EU residents.

Insurance to allow me to ride a Mates bike in Ireland

Re: Biolite campstove

I love technology and it looks really cool. But for me its a bit too big. If I was driving a GS Van I might consider it. As Chalky723 says, you can charge everything from your bike. I carry a Jetboil as it packs down really small.
