Re: Downs Road near Mickleham - Any experience?

There used to be quite a lot of byways around Box Hill, National Trust had the majority closed. The one you're referring to (I think) is the old Roman Road, it's been closed to motor vehicles for at least a decade, which was a shame as it went right past where I lived. If the other lane runs past Ex...

Re: Fire or Obstacle ?

Re: Recommendations for really hot weather bike gear.

As has been said Jak, you need 2 dedicated jackets, One for when it's hot - mesh jacket or shirt option & the rest of the year. One thing to note, any time at decent speed & you can get chilly, I always carry a lightweight puffa & waterproof jacket (if they fold bigger than a beer can they're overki...

Re: Where does it say we must return home at night?

Well as its gone off topic lol.... The last to return to work will be the teachers and council staff who have found sitting at home on full pay rather nice.... Stop the furlough scheme... I'd love to sit at home on full pay, or even go on a camping jolly (I'm not even going to go there). However I ...

It's a shame on two wheels have gone behind a paywall, they had some excellent youtube content. The mc garage is particularly good. Have a look at their recent baja Throttle Out Monkey Bike video

Re: Multistrada V VanVan

I have fond memories of those Alps trips, slow up the hills but great fun none the less. I got to the top & then a bit more of the Stella, there's plenty of 'proper' bikes that can't manage that :lol:

Yes Richard, they were around in the 70's. A surprisingly fun bike to ride, probably the most fun adventures I've ever had on a motorcycle

Re: Electric MTB

I'm still at work so been using the bike daily for the commute & with the weather being stunning the long way home up & over the downs. It turns what would be a pretty taxing journey (20 miles of South Downs hills) for a not particularly fit, middle aged biker into great fun.

Re: Work Case #17 Husky TE450

I lived in Epsom for 9 years & for some reason if at a loose end one sunday morning I'd find myself somewhere around Petersfield / Petworth / Midhurst for no particular reason, even if I'd just popped out for milk. Bad bike. It used to do the same coming back from the Portsmouth ferry, aim for the A...
