Re: Trail riding in the Dordorgne. Independant JAXSHACK review

I cant comment on JaxShack as I have never been there but I did just spend yet another 3 weeks in the Dordogne not too far from you. Trails are indeed fantastic, just so much to see and enjoy words don't describe it. Cave paintings, scenic towns and villages, spectacular views. If you get a chance, ...

Re: Motion sickness

I do suffer sea sickness despite a love of sea and sailing and for me Stugeron was the way to go. My solution is to eat well, but 2 hours before so its all done its thing and leaves the body warm and comfortable. Some good advice there, focussing on things more distant seems to help but I wonder is ...

Re: Recommendations for Garage Lighting

Fluorescents deteriorate and reduce with age. They also get condensation and dust on the tube reducing light by as much as 50% They also depend on having a good reflector behind them. Of course condensation and dust affects that too. Cold affects the tube AND the electrical voltages. Cole weather al...

Re: Safety and learning to ride again...

My son gave me a very good explanation on the hydration. Typically we have about 8 pints of blood floating around inside us. But its a bit like our gas tanks.....usable quantity is a lot less. The rest is off in the little blood vessels bringing oxygen to far reaching places.......but the biggest us...

Re: Parking Rant

I would suggest name the place so that anyone else can avoid it.

So much for a friendly welcome for tourism.

Curious though how a shop can put a charge like that on you? Clamp?

Re: Safety and learning to ride again...

Might sound a strange thing to say but staying hydrated is just so important. Much easier on 4 wheels than on 2. On long runs now I don't run tank to tank as its 200 miles, but do about 80 miles, then a few minutes and some water. At the second 160 its a case of petrol and water and foods. I can do ...

Re: First adventure bike stolen in 3 weeks - Triumph Tiger 800 XCX

Sadly the reality is that you make a claim for theft you lose the excess off the claim and then the no claims goes with it. For that reason some of us riding old bikes don't bother with making the claim. Can be cheaper to take the loss than go for the insurance pay out. But Shirley you could save m...

Thing is.........over 40 years old is exempt too. I have 2 1984 bikes that in 5 years can be freely used.
Will it stay at 40 years or will it become 41 then 42 then 43 and so on, scrolling on.

You never know with this mayor!
I don't really mind....I live far from such an environment.

Some lovely photos there.. I had to miss it .my youngest daughter took me to Vienna for the weekend and it was an amazing weekend of music and art galleries. She got her hands on some VIP tickets for two classical concerts that were to die for.

But I will make it for next year!!
