Re: UK Superbike School back in operation!!

That is good news, not done CSS but was considering it prior to them closing. I have not watched the video yet but I wonder what track or tracks they will be based at?. Looking at the shear lack of trackdays as opposed to years back (due to noise I believe) it will be interesting to see how they man...

Re: Longest Day Ride

Thanks for the kind words chaps :D HoboBeemer - there is no legal access to off road riding up here without the landowners permission and thus there is no "starting point" for you to use as a reference for dirt riding. I use an open gate policy, taking the chance of an entertaining, one way discuss...

Re: Longest Day Ride

Superb, What is the situation in Scotland ref riding on unpaved roads?, am I correct in thinking that "Green laining" is not a thing up there or maybe I just imagined I heard that?. I am trying to get a route planned for when Scotland opens up again, I will be on a GS and would like to find some off...

Re: France as off Monday 15th June 2020

Ok interesting, Was looking at heading out sometime in July as I surmise that the 2 week Quarantine will be lifted then?, the issue is obtaining up to date information as some Governement links are as clear as mud with far to much interpretation thrown in, a vast amount of folks are going with 2 wee...

Re: Trackers that do not need to be hard wired?.

Having done a bit more looking at reviews etc I have just ordered the Monimoto, looking at a few of the indepth reviews the actual size is not as big as some have made out and looks actually really resonable for such a device.

Thanks for all input..

Re: Trackers that do not need to be hard wired?.

Ps if travelling with a Monimoto (ie camping or sleeping close to it) you will need a small RFID secure pouch off Ebay to put the key fob in, as the first thing the alarm does is look for it on disturbance. They are only a couple of £s on EBay. This sort of thing - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mobile...

Re: Jupiter's Travels - again

Another book that I enjoyed and didnt think I would was Dan Walsh's (Ex Bike magazine) RTW trip with some really honest self questioning that took place but it seems few people know about this book??. I remember Dan Walsh's ramblings well in Bike magazine, and I mean that in a nice way as his style...

Re: Jupiter's Travels - again

Like many I have read it more times than I can count and I think I have done it in one sitting more than once. I also enjoyed the book of his second trip. I once went "Up north" to Coventry was it?, to the transport museum where the first bike is on show and that was worth the trip to such a iconic ...

Re: Trackers that do not need to be hard wired?.

Monimoto, when the free subscription expires put an Asda PAYG sim in is where I am at, seems good VFM especially as I bought it used. If I go away I can move it from bike to bike depending on which one I am using. Ok, ;) Still way behind the times with this tech, so sorry for my naive questions.......
