Re: Easy Rider

Blimey...this is “heavy, man”... :shock: :D . I think I need some wacky backy before I contribute :lol: :lol:.

Re: £3507 spent in just under 600miles!

Blimey! :o
I had one of those once, good bike but a touch heavy. Mine had a CRD exhaust (which was way too loud) and Renthal Dakar bars which I preferred to the standard bars. Could have done with a 6th gear as well but it was a nice enough bike for trail riding.

Re: route des cols

+1 for 2 days ride to Carcassonne. We've done it several times from Calais and we don't hang about ( :oops: ). We usually go over on the tunnel, have an overnight stop off in either Bourges or Moulins, and it's still 2 days of hard (ish) riding. You can, of course, cut it down if you just go on the ...
