Re: Soft Baggage Comparison 2020

Many thanks Chris Remarkably timely and helpful post - literally just searching for soft luggage for the new SCR950. As stock, it doesn't even have space to store an allen key! Looks like SW Motech are front runners at the mo... They make an SLC side carrier that is lockable and bike specific, and d...

Re: New Bike

I really like the SCR - heavy, slow, few BHP's, no tech to speak of, and based on a cruiser. A bit like my MT01, in fact. And better still, it's a cool looking machine, ideal for relaxed riding. In fact, I'm a bit envious to tell the truth. As an aside, my local dealer recently had a pre-reg but un...

New Bike

Well, finally got rid of the ST1300 Pan after almost 4 years. A lot longer than I´d planned to keep it as my UK bike. I liked it, a great engine and loads of handy luggage space, but can´t say I ever loved it. Now it´s space has been taken by an SCR950. Which is a strange mix of cruiser, scrambler a...

Re: Update on the situation in Spain

Thanks for the update Alan - I've been in Wales for the last month or so, and heading home to BCN on Saturday. Quarantine at our place in Wales in July was a pain - but I was homeworking so not too bad. Hols in west wales over last few weeks more than made up for it - mountain bikes and beach in all...

Re: To quarantine or not?

Nice dogs Mosel. Hope you can find a suitable workaround in due course... though still grates that we have to do that - feel for you! Talking about that, and the title of this thread, today I'm back in quarantine in the UK! As usual, we have our summer holiday in west Wales in a couple of weeks with...

Re: To quarantine or not?

It would be interesting to hear what you think of this article, Alan and Pat... https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/28/coronavirus-spike-spain-pandemic-mistakes A well written article, with many reflections that mirror my own. However, I don´t agree that no one saw this coming (makes...

Re: To quarantine or not?

Please don't leave the UK. The UK is the rabid covid hub of Europe at the moment. Joking aside, it's a bit of a free-for-all in Europe, until you are stopped. Even then, provided you give them the answers they want to hear, you are waved on. I only travel out of necessity now, for shopping or to ea...

Re: To quarantine or not?

Interesting Pat, thank you. I'm comparing this to Germany, where I currently split my time with the UK throughout the year. Out of interest, what are you going to do after 31 December and Brexit? It's going to change my mode of operation with the 90 day / 90 day restrictions on travel and stay. Hav...

Re: To quarantine or not?

Hmmm. As someone who lives in both UK and Spain, and travels very regularly between the two (albeit not so much between April to early July), I thought I´d offer some reflections. A week ahead feels like too far to plan with any certainty these days (my own travel plans this week have shifted twice ...

Re: ABR Festival 2020 Update

Makes sense - and thanks for the early dates, which I´ll schedule in now. They do say absense makes the heart grow fonder!
Stay safe everyone.
