Re: CCM GP 450......was it any good?

of course, I was referring to the well known fuelling problems where the bike was put on the market with the known faults, and then cost a fortune to rectify. but for the weight, at 125kg, and size engine, and ride feel, it is great. but the husky 701 is only 145kg [(sure i read it was 165kg???) .....

Re: The Yamaha Tenere thread

The ol' 660 had the version with a 22/23ltr tank did it not? Definite selling point from the usual piddly tanks with enough capacity to get you somewhere then your fecked/ having to "calm down."

Re: Snugpak sleeping bags.

snugpak are a good brand BUT if its synthetic its bulky-I've passed my 4 season synthetic on. They are especially bulky for a 3/4 season. I've ended up with a down 4 season from China (they are the source for about 90% of the world's down!)--I think Whitewolf was the brand---superb for a 4 season fo...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

I've just seen film of the "entitled" little shits in liverpool paying no respect whatsoever to social distancing, wearing masks etc--and then probably going home to give Covid to their parents or grandparents.
