Re: Annual insurance trawl...

I would never use CN again.A couple of years ago I took out a new policy with them after getting a reasonable quote.After sending in my previous renewal notice as proof of NCB I get a letter back saying they are increasing my premium by £60 as I wasn't truthful about the price of my renewal quote.

Re: Scotland trip advice

I'd agree with not getting hung up on the NC500.For me a perfect trip would be from Perth-Inverness on , miss out the east coast of NC500 and go through Bonar Bridge,Lairg to Tongue.The mileage saved there I would put to a lap of Skye then back down the A82 through Glencoe. Fasgath...

Re: Helmet life in storage.

A £50 helmet has to pass the same safety tests as £500 helmet.Saying that,I like Shoei's for their fit and comfort but I ...

Re: Just a thought what's the furthest north anyone has been on a bike?????

Re: Route advice please - Eastern France to the Med

+1 for Castellane. I rode down through the Vecours and based myself there for 5 days before returning home roughly following the Route Des Grande Alps. Great riding in that area. Gorge de Dalius and Gorge du Cians were two of my favourites, a lot quieter than Gorge du Verdon.

Re: Wood gives me wood

I work for a firm that make timber framed kit houses. It's a bit boring but I can't leave because I haven't had to buy any firewood for my log burner for about 8 years now! 😂
