Re: Lockdown

Regarding travelling to and from work it says "absolutely necessary", to put that in context necessary means essential.

And don't get me started on the 'panic buyers'...an acquaintance tells me DHL is carrying 300% more volume in the retail chain than normal, and the supermarket shelves are still emptying!
Anybody buying extra bog rolls are complete and utter fuckwits.

Re: Travel this year

I have cancelled all biking until further notice Why? What is that going to achieve for you? Are you going to stop all other activities that need you to leave home? I would have thought you were less likely to catch anything in the Dales or on the North York's Moors than you are in the supermarkets?

Re: ktm 790 adventure r perfection or myth

Dibbs, I chose a PR7 over the 790 because the 790 ergos did not work for me, the PR7's did. The lack of some form of screen on the 790 was also a factor. Obviously the PR7 is a 600cc single so it's road performance is not comparable to that of the 790. Off road, the PR7 has plenty, unless your name ...

Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

The Yam has taken years to bring to market and whilst cheap repeats all the previous mistakes - overweight and under powered. Will be ok if you want an off road styled commuter but as a trail/adventure bike - no. So after countless reviews and owner opinions are you eating your words yet Rob regard...

Re: Smart Motorways

experienced, sensible travellers will know that it is often quicker to reach a destination by travelling at a slower speed, especially in congestion .. where faster traffic will tend to bunch up, then come to a standstill ...
