Re: what have you done to your bike today??

A quick scan on you tube showed me a trick with a M8 nut and some mole grips and the job was a goodun. That's exactly what i do Brenhden. Two flat metal plates - one on the pins, the other over the nut which you sit on the link plate between the two pins on the other side - then squeeze with mole g...

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Forgot this earlier. The Super Cub now has a "Range Extender" fitted. I looked at Rotapax, very nice But dimensionally the wrong shape. I looked at the Chinese "copies" which were the right size, but I had concerns about the plastic mount's longevity, so I made my own brackets and did this. Not even...

Re: CRF 250 rally ...

Mine's raised 1" on risers. No issues with cables or brake lines.

Noticeable improvement when standing, but then I am a 6'1" lanky beggar.

That looks brilliant. Love the idea that you can pop it off for a table.
What a great bit of work and thanks for sharing it 👍
Yeah, the table idea is great. Anything double-useage is good. But where are the chairs, candelabra etc...?
Next project............ :lol:

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Seeing as you asked, this is the touring set up, all home made. The first pictures are of the first fit, the last pictures are the final fit with a reinforcing beam with cutouts for straps for my waterproof bag if I don't use the top box (it's only a tiddler for local trips) and I added cutouts to ...

Re: Brenhden's TET

Nice report sir. I grew up near there (Chippenham) and Lacock is mostly owned by the National trust. Most of the property (not all) is rented out. Glad to see someone out and about. I'm a shielded one, but I managed to get a run round the back lanes of Devon a couple of days ago. I'll be moving my ...
