Re: What would put you off buying a GS1200/1250?

just watching that Beijing trip with Kev Sanders and a group of wannabes--if anything would put you off buying a newish GS for that sort of trip then this would. Kev's ok cos he can ride(and I believe has now gone Triumph anway). there is an 800 GS in there which is ridden by a twit and that copes w...

Re: Beware lomo shit panniers...

They are large with a good and long velcro strap system over the seat. I used mine on the Dragon this year--and we know how wet that was!--You simply (as I've said before)--have to mount them so that the straps are not too far off the vertical--and because they are large exhaust outlet needs to be c...

Re: Twin spark crf 250

my 600 transalp is twin spark--so 300cc cylinders with two plugs--but its a 3 valver!!--down at 250 cc with 4 valves the only place for a plug is right in the centre, and to be honest the advantages of twin plugs down at this size in terms of a more rapid burn are debatable--especially on a relative...

Re: MALVERN HILLS RALLY UPDATE

John was a bit worried on Thursday as there were only 4 of us--but the numbers filled up on Friday.Tim did a recce of the whole route on Friday and had to...

Re: Inactive ABS warning light.

Good call--but it really is too much for mere mortals!--how about a simple on/off switch?--they obviously didn't like people riding WITHOUT ABS active.

Re: MALVERN HILLS RALLY UPDATE

thanks John for the clarification--Its certainly not secure to the road from their car park--but its hard standing so could be used as overspill!

Re: MALVERN HILLS RALLY UPDATE

Do you mean park in the bottom end of their very long car park and walk through the gate?--might turn up thursday if I can get a dry(ish) run down.

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

I don't understand how such a large cluster occurred in Italy without being detected for a while--we've heard nothing about the potential source?--if we ban all air travel that would help--get back to a 1940s war economy with land girls etc--I was born just after the war and we had no running water ...
