Re: recomend me a laptop?

SSD and replace the RAM with decent known make stuff, don't add to it. My HP's have been faster with new ram and changing to an SSD makes a huge difference.

Re: Another marvellous bit of unbiased reporting...

It's not even slightly balanced, the journalist must be a friend of someone.
No mention that the roads in question were built as quarry roads and were always bed rock, that's how they were made!

Re: tyres with silica..

Often wondered about it, I have winter tyres on my van all year and they transformed it in snow, it's now a transit that doesn't get stuck in snow.
In winter I've normally gone for knobbly tyres but they won't be a winter compound.

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

I'm on the 701 Dave, hopefully I'll not need to change tyres but it'll be good to have the option. I'm finding more dead ends than through roads but it's fun, took me 2 hours to cover 40 miles this morning :-) Currently south of Poitiers and heading south of you. Did you get my text Dave?

Re: Husqvarna 701

The steels always warp when they get hot, they usually go blue or black too. If you think that's bad you should see how bad speedway and grasstrack clutches get, they are open to the air, are large diameter and have 6 springs and they still slip and burn out leaving many of the steel plates dished l...
