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.

Re: Smart Motorways

, Reduce the speed limit to 50mph Admittedly this results in a hairy situation, and there is a narrow lane area near me ..but perhaps a 40mph speed limit for this idea would keep the traffic flowing continuously.

I've onle ever done one of the shorter Rally Sprint events but enjoyed it a lot.
Do they have any events more like the 500 but using GPS for the Nav element?
Rob110 (on here?) runs 150 - 200km/day GPS Nav events from SweetLamb - next one is in April IIRC.

Re: Rally Moto 500 events

The 500 bit is the overall event distance in kms.

Bike must be over 140kgs.

As you like BMW's and the Tenalady you'll be fine re the weight........ ;)

Re: Short riders

Women cope with lack of stature better than short men in my experience. This is possibly because short men spend excessive energy worrying about their shortcomings and attempting to compensate (which is impossible and futile). For avoidance of doubt, the definition of male shortness is anybody of le...
