Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

In the UK with no testing we're all wondering if it's just the usual spring cold twinge or the virus, had a few days last week of slight sore through and feeling very tired in the morning after a solid nights sleep, Alison was even more tired and going to bed early each night, but it could have just...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Looking forward to seeing you in Sort September, should be a great week. Take care... Will Good to hear from you Wills. Yeah, you keep safe and locked down, old bean. Do you think we'll make Sort this year? I haven't given up on it, by any means, but I wonder if we'll all be able to travel by then?...

Re: Yamaha T 700 full on !

That vid makes it look agile and fast (and it sounds fantastic). But it's all down to the rider. Wish I had those skills. My problem is that I try to ride like that, and fail... I think not Dave, you'd quite happily do that round a known course ;-) I wonder if it's up for sale now with "Only 600 mi...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Thanks Steve. I was just thinking yesterday about your bus business, and this morning I caught the tail-end of some BBC report about money being made available to help local bus companies through covid-time. How is all this affecting you and the missus? A lot of weddings and events have been cancel...

Re: Work Case #16 CRF450R

My 400exc had over 10k on it when I took it to bits, the piston rings were over 1mm gap and the inlet valves were knife edged, still started and ran fine. New piston, rings, inlet valves and cam chain and it's been no problem for the last 2k or so. The bore and valve seats were perfect as well. Befo...

Re: Offroad / on road, adventure suit recommendations.

I've recently bought a Klim jacket while it was on offer, it's one of the waterproof ones without any thermal lining but it has a mesh lining, twas around £300 from Adv Spec. I've used it a few times over winter, usually with thermal top, t shirt, jumper and a fleece jacket and I've been warm. I suf...
