Re: Hard shoulder penality

The village Bobby--those were the days. Me and my cousin got caught poaching trout in the River Test. The Bobby confiscated the gear and told us to retrieve it from the "lord of the manner"--by appointment--stood in front of his big desk. Didn't stop us but never forgotten. Also when the local had a...

Re: Never gonna buy a honda again

I've had a few Hondas over the years--all secondhand with no problems at all--except a CRF230 which was also excellent (did Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and back to Italy with full camping kit and mostly trails). I have two Hondas now--both late 90s--a transalp and CB500--both excellent buil...

Re: Hard shoulder penality

What happens if a vehicle has broken down and you cannot pass, even with a clear road, without crossing a solid line? My dear departed father in law was an advanced police driving instructor in North Wales--and believe me he hated solid lines as it seems to take away good observation and awareness--...

Re: Ecky Thump Rally 11 to 13 October

also key to make sure the charging light is red with ignition on--could be just the bulb--and somewhere in the recesses of my brain cell I think if that circuit isn't complete through the charging light then the field windings are not activated and the generator doesn't charge--all because of a blow...

Re: Ecky Thump Rally 11 to 13 October

Shame I couldn't make it--looks like you missed most of the weekend rain. Just curious on the R80 GS--did the charge light not show a fault (i.e. stay red)? On our earlier G/S it works but takes a good blip to get it showing a charge i.e. to go out.

Re: Never gonna buy a honda again

ethanol was a US invention to give the central US "corn" growers a market--you ought to see the plants in Illinois and the barges full of the stuff ready for processing!--it contains its own oxygen--hence the lower calorific value and its effect on tanks and the like. I'm just resurrecting a good ol...

Re: special tent recomendations?

I bought a couple of these a couple of years ago--almost as disposable for the LeMans Moto GP--loads of fires and flying embers --at 70 quid a good copy of the very expensive US BIG AGNES version https://www.naturehike.com/cloud-up-3-ultralight-three-men-tent/ I've used it a few times and no complai...
