Re: Something like Rok Straps

How about these?

The short straps with the Camlock is elasticated, and you can simple join the short and long straps together by feeding the end loops through each other to make endless straps.

Re: GSA front brake switch

Unfortunately, I currently have much more familiarity with the AES website than I really want. This is not their fault ... I have an old Landrover, which is currently undergoing a gradual rewire. It seems that 40yrs is the maximum lifetime for 1979 LandRover wiring. Every couple of weeks, a circuit ...

Re: GSA front brake switch

Would a change-over relay help? https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/174/category/36 These have two outputs, and the relay flips between them so one of them is always live. Use the output from your expensive bar steward switch to trigger the relay, then attach the feed to your brake lights...

Re: Camel Tanks and Others...

Would a pair of 2L alloy tanks be of any interest? £45 each or £100 the pair. Available here: https://adventurebikerider.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=48464 I don't understand the pricing strategy either, but they look very pretty. Two litres (even twice) isn't going to be enough on this trip. My ...

Re: BANG !

My father was an army bomb disposal officer in the 1950s and early 60s. At that time, most of his workload was making safe WW2 relics. One of his stories was about the journey back to base after a job. Trundling along in their Land Rover, he and his assistant passed a petrol station and noticed a ca...

Re: mot and sprayed screens?

Has anyone ever had an MOT failure because of a scuffed up or opaque screen? I have had a few screens deteriorate quite badly over time, mainly because of sun light damage, but no MOT tester has ever made any comment about it. It has never caused me any trouble in normal riding. If I were considerin...

Re: Bike transport service

I worked for these at one stage. http://www.sos-motorcycle-recovery.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=104&Itemid=62 I have been recovered by this company (via the RAC) a couple of times, in 1997 and again around 2010. Was very happy with the treatment of my bike on both occasions.

Re: Malvern hills rally 2019

I was only there for a bit of it, but thoroughly enjoyed that bit. So, many thanks to Devon John, the pub management and the other participants. I went to visit my brother in Hereford afterwards, and at that point my final drive dumped its oil all over the road, so I got home courtesy of the RAC. I ...

Re: Heated Grips

Hedgehopper: " just read the manual, 8mm hole needed, not too sure about that" Garryboy: "I wonder if 2 x 4mm holes would do as 8mm gotta weaken the bars?" From section 2B of the installation instructions: "Alternatively, drill a 3 – 5 mm hole on each side of the handlebar underneath the switch unit...
