Re: Waterproof oversuit/jacket/trousers - recommendations?

Another vote for the Oxford Rain Seal. I've got the two piece which tends to live in my panniers for when I get caught out. To be honest, I've never been over impressed with the water proofness of my Dainese jacket but have found with the Rain Seal stuff over the top I stay really dry even in the he...

Re: Something to do over Xmas

Re: Hard shoulder penality

Not on a hard shoulder but still solid white line related. My mate was on his way over to meet up for a ride. Just round the corner from his house is a railway level crossing and the barriers were down as he approached with four or five cars already in the queue. He decided to go to the front of th...

Re: Go Outdoors “Jet Boil” £30

Thanks for the tip off. Picked up one of the chairs on Saturday morning, an absolute bargain at that price. Seems to be pretty well made and take my weight (fifteen stone) without a problem.

Re: Motorent Adventure, Coyhaique, Chile

Apologies to anyone who tried to look at the Motorent Adventure website, my posting seemed to coincide with the website going down. It seems to be back up and working now.

Motorent Adventure, Coyhaique, Chile

Some of you may have seen my thread in the trip reports section about the incredible three weeks that my mate Rob and I spent riding in Patagonia in january this year. It's an amazing region, as I hope the images in that thread go a little way to showing. I really just wanted to post something on he...

Re: Biker with Ear Problem

I have a good friend who's suffered with tinitus, caused by biking, for years. Seeing how he's suffered, I won't ride without ear protection. I used to use the disposable foam type but now have a set of custom made ones with filters, also from Mercury. Had them done at Motorcycle Live at the NEC a c...
