Re: Adventure bike festival

Have to agree - one of the best bike weekends I've been to. Much much bigger, much more choice of what to do, fantastic venue, great music, bikes, food and drink, amazing speakers, plentiful clean loos and showers, great value for money, AND maintained the same relaxed feel as ABR bashes of the past...

Re: ABR Festival 2019 - Who's Going

Gear all sorted, and heading off in the wee hours tomorrow morning. My three priorities for the weekend:

1) enjoy great company
2) enjoy test rides (interested in the 700 Ten particularly)
3) enjoy lots of siestas.

See ya tomorrow!
:D

Re: Travel idea's

Spud, you know the sorts of places to head to in Spain - and who to go to for more local advice - hard to go wrong in autumn really. But I do like Herman's suggestion too - we were talking about Croatia at the midlands. It really is a fab place - and you pass through some special places on the way t...

Re: South America

Mark VP clearly has more up to date info on accommodation than I can offer, as my time down there was a few years back now - but his points very much resonate with me (including the edit 2!!) As for tyres, again very much a personal thing. For me, much as I like them (and currently running my XT on ...

Re: Tickets now available for Adventure Bike Rider Festival 2018

Ticket bought - looking forward to it - has been too long! Pat Looking forward to catching up with you Pat, are you riding from Barca or Ponty? It will be from Ponty I'm afraid. I'm extending a work trip, so no time to ride Idris up from the land of el sol. Looks like it will be on my Pan too, as I...

Recommend me a home brake bleed kit

Hi all
Time has come to change fluids on a couple of my bikes, one of which with ABS, so I'd like to get a brake bleed kit to help out - rather than through the 'ould' way.
Have any of you had any successes using them, and could you point me in the right direction.
Cheers
Pat
