Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

This was (Briefly) the future of the adventure bike bike market a few years ago.
It's good at what it does and it's reliable.......But For me, I'd sooner take a mobile library off road.

But It's mine and a Tenere and I can post a picture on this thread!

Re: Triumph 1200 Bonneville Bobber - thoughts please

I was talking to a Triumph Tiger 800 rider a couple of days ago. He had a 1200 Bonneville as a loan bike whilst his bike was being serviced.

Re: Cruiser riders

Us bikers are pretty diverse group of folk. The Harley riders probably regard Adventure Bike riders as Klim-clad-self righteous-Ewan-Charlie-Wannabes.

Re: Free camping/Beer/BBQ Rural Cheshire 30/May/2020

This ABR forums full of idiots who haven't a clue about covid19, but maybe when someone you know gets it and is seriously ill or dies, then maybe you will understand
