Re: Planning for next year

Avoid Switzerland. Too expensive, folk there vary from ok ish to downright rude. Driving standards are poor, unless you count sticking to the speed limit ridgidly. Theuy also will take it upon themselves to try and 'educate' you if they don't like how you're driving. It's a lovely place scenery wis...

Re: Exotogg

I tend to agree. Thought about one for a long trip due to small pack size versus an electric jacket but I suspect a decent down jacket would suffice and as you say doubles up as an off bike jacket.

Thanks

This is definately something I'm really looking to do so shall be following this post closely.

If anyone could reccomend some good companies offering kathmandu to base camp and maybe Lhasa too, I'd be really interested.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Thanks Chris.
Haha, yes 930mm but it’s only the same height as my WR250R - which, I believe, you have experience of.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Lubing? Etc.... 2 - It has a very low seat height and I need a very high seat height (my 1200gs is 930...

Re: Klim Overshell Pants - Caution

I had a BMW Tourance jacket for about 15 years and did over 150K miles in it. It is still very usable (I use it for trail riding) but it got a bit scruffy. I wanted something of similar quality and was prepared to pay for it so went with Klim. The trousers are excellent but I’m not happy with the ja...
