Re: Navmii

Not tried that one but I have used Here WeGo for a few years. It lets you download individual country maps to use offline. I think it was originally developed by Nokia and then bought by BMW/Audi/Daimler. It’s free to download and the mapping is regularly updated.

Re: Scum !!!

Unfortunately its a regular sight on our (paved) lane. I’m generally first out in the mornings and have had to stop on a fair few occasions to move it to the side so everyone can get out. Last winter a load of garden clearance rubbish was left in the lane. Several neighbours reported it as an obstru...

Re: Oh FFS Tyres!!!!! [ big thumping trail bike]

I can recommend not fitting MC360’s. :D Put a set of mid hards on my 690 and they’re awful, the front especially. Even aired down to 10 psi the front washes out in corners on the lanes. So disconcerting it made me properly slow down on the Isle of Man. I’m going to try them on our local muddy lanes ...

Re: Cheaper Kriega Version-

I wonder what the quality is like at that price? I’ve got a couple of US5’s and a set over Overlanders. The Overlanders are perfect on the 690. Easy to put on and take off and 30 litres is more than enough space for me.

Re: TT 2019 practice week and trails

Nice one Dan. Went a couple years ago on the 950. It's great being able to get up to some of the corners on 'the mountain' via the trails and have them to yourself :D We did the mountain road quite a few times. Passed a few bikes on the knobblies but I got really frustrated that I could only get to...

Re: Use Harpic to clean exhaust

My 690 header before (broken) and after (welded) harpic max 10 treatment. Pretty much effortless considering the state of it.

Re: TT 2019 practice week and trails

Brilliant , looks like you had a great time. Squaring up that rad was a feat in itself :D It just twisted back square by hand. That’s Bmw quality for you. :shock: The plastic end tank was just held on with alloy tabs, so they were opened up, the end tank put back into place and tabs squeezed tight....

TT 2019 practice week and trails

Sorry, can’t get the videos to embed. I’ve been over a few times for trail riding but never for the racing. We always stay at the same bunk house over near Peel. Perfect for us as wet and muddy doesn’t matter at the end of the day. I cant imagine going to a B&B in the state we’re usually in. https:/...

Re: CRF450L Mixed Feelings.

Just had the DID rear rim flat spot, not done anything dramatic only done 1250 miles , and the spokes come loose , disappointing and Im now going to be riding heart in mouth worrying about the rear wheel, it would appear that the wheel had been poorly built. The DID rims on my 690 we’re like 50p pi...
