Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

https://www.visordown.com/features/top-10s/top-10-sports-tourers-under-%C2%A33k That article is 5 years old, so prices have changed of course. Indeed the bikes are now older and generally more affordable. I forgot the Triumph ST, which would be worth considering. Go for a 1050ST though, not the ear...

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

I had an XJR1300 for a while. BUT, a bit of a pogo stick in the twisties if you are pressing on. The SP model has Ohlins labelled rear shocks, but they are not pucker Ohlins really - they just look nice. I suppose they could do a bit of pogoing if not set up well. A lot of owners opt for different ...

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

I had an XJR1300 for a while. Most comfortable saddle in christendom, and pillions always said the same. Tracie even fell asleep on the back returning from Donington WSB one time. BUT, a bit of a pogo stick in the twisties if you are pressing on. The SP model has Ohlins labelled rear shocks, but the...

Re: EU. In or out?

I remember when May was "elected" by her peers and there were calls from the left for a general election to prove that the Conservatives had the mandate to rule with their new leader. At the same time, they conveniently forgot that Gordon Brown ascended to the position of Prime Minister in a simila...

Re: May contain nuts

On the subject of scale, did you know that Nelson was only just over 5 feet tall ? And yet his statue in Trafalgar Square is over 15 feet tall.

Which is a horatio of 3 to 1.

Re: EU. In or out?

John Major may not have been voted in during a General Election, however, he did win one in 1992, so he did actually have a mandate. Yeah, very true. But there was a period in which Major was PM purely by virtue of the ousting of Thatcher and an internal tory party selection process. It wasn't unti...

Re: Meals on two wheels.

Or if you are in France on a Sunday :lol: :lol: :lol: So true. Well... actually, in the 11 years we've lived here things have changed quite a bit. Lidl, Aldi and the big supermarkets all open on Sunday now. You're very lucky to find any local boulangeries open though. I didn't mean to be disparagin...
