Re: h7 headlight bulbs?

My 2010 GSA goes through headlight bulbs quite frequently. Have started to use the 'heavy duty' version from Halfords & they do seem to last longer.

Re: Aux Lights No Worky!

On my 1100gs my spots were switched on/off by a double tap on the indicator cancel switch. Also worth a try?

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

I had never been to the Ponderosa before and it was great to see all the other bikes there. 20190714_135736.jpg Was lovely to see this GSXR 750 - I remember when they came out, I had a GSX1100EF at the time and lusted after the GSXR1100 but could not afford to change - maybe it was for the best :twi...

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

From memory there are three gates to open and close after you, but a good opportunity for a photo whilst doing so.

Re: Long weekend in Wales & the ABR Festival

We were not dissapointed with this road that links Trawsfyndd to Llanuwchllyn. A great road passing through a remote and rugged landscape. An extra bonus, a nice river for another spot of fishing on the way through.
