Re: The good the bad & **********

Hi, I have broken down on 2 separate occasions in Europe whilst being insured with Carole Nash and they were superb. Worth noting if you do shop around, with CN if you are unable to ride, they will repatriate the bike for you - whilst riding with a buddy he broke his collar bone but the bike was ok,...

Re: The new fuel symbols for EU countries (from 12th October) - French Version

I don't know the truth of it, but I read that France is still producing the same amount of undrinkable wine that caused the wine lakes in the past, thanks to the common agricultural policy of guaranteed prices. The surplus wine is now being converted into petrol to get rid of it ! E10 ??

Re: French 80kmh limits

I have recently returned from France, approaching a main road with solid white line I did a rolling stop prior to turning right. No traffic in sight in either direction and clear view I pulled into the road - 2 bike cops ran into the middle of the road and directed me to the side. Having established...

Re: EDC Morocco, Africa, 2018. Open invite for FREE On/Off road & desert guided tour.

Hi Keith, I am not sure whether you received my email, but the neck injury did not heal so I underwent spinal surgery on 30th June. I seem to be recovering pretty well, but common sense (of which I have little) dictates that the trip would be perhaps pushing me luck ! So reluctantly I will not be jo...

Re: Which bike?

Hi, I have the BMW 650 Sertao. It weighs around 190 kilo not sure how that compares to the Dakar. I have ridden the bike extensively and it is capable off-road and fun on road - will see in excess of 100mph and is comfortable at high speed even wearing knobblies. It is fairly easy to change the fron...

Re: Which Bike

Hi, if you are new to off-roading I would hesitate before spending your cash. Your commute I would have thought would place a fair emphasis on road comfort and ability - the bikes mentioned are all on the heavy side ie in excess of 200kilo I would guess, and will put you under significant pressure o...
