Re: For amusement purposes only

I had a good read of this list and amazing how few items have dropped off the list. Most are still on it, some in a more modern format but still there. Many years back I made a checklist for camping with the kids. It was always useful as a last minute check to make sure things were not forgotten. I ...

Re: Karoo 3's in the wet?

my 'umble experience... We used to call Yokohamas 'whispering death'. Japanese OEM equipment tyres were actually dangerous back then...most people used to take them off and fit Avon Roadrunners or Dunlop TT100s. The disc brakes werent any better in the wet either, how did we survive! Youngs un's no...

Re: Cameras in France

Back last Wednesday from my second visit there this year. The simply love 'le moto' in every sense of the word and even better will always look out for you. Don't park in car spaces marked 'payant' and don't block car spaces....but they will always find you a space on a foot path or somewhere as lon...

Re: Self Guide or Tour Group

Just back from 10 days in France. Solo trip, 520 miles from Roscoff to my destination, a one day ride each way. I have done it many times, sometimes with a friend, sometimes on my own. Amazing what can happen though. My K1100LT like my other K bikes trouble free. I came off the ferry in Cork yesterd...

Re: Honda warranty

I had an interesting experience some years back with a car. It was the only time I ever used a lease but I think PCP works similarly. After a litany of woes I eventually decided to read the small print. My contract was to maintain the vehicle exactly in accordance with the manufacturers service sche...

You are in Scotland so you could come across to Larne, down east coast to Rosslare and ferry to France or Santander. Or join some UK own...

Re: BMW K75s

I have 4 Ks on the road, K100LT K100RS K100LT and K1100LT. I have used them all on long trips and they are really made for them. Technically they are great and very reliable with brilliant parts availability. Greasing splines is a must... Tyre pressures depend on tyres but 38/42 seems to work best f...

Seems its warmer than expect...

Re: BMW independent, Clutch replacement cost R1100

Well I thought I would give a bit of a update, I contacted 4 different BMW independent places and not one got back to me with a quote and lead time. I guess BMW service must be a booming industry ???.. Decided to do it myself and wear a back brace as I really cannot be hunched over very long, built...

Re: Meet Up in Sort, Catalunya 23-27 September 2019

For anyone driving/riding south, planning to use the N147 between Poitiers and Limoges: it's being dug up and re-surfaced near Bussiere Poitevine - Saint Bonnet De Bellac (close to Motobreaks, if you know it). The official diversion is quite lengthy so you might want to take a different route south...
