Re: My Favorite Gadgets that work, whats yours ?

1. Heated grips! Out yesterday in freezing fog and felt nothing. How did we survive without them. 2. Camping towel. What a space saver; folds to the size of a (ok big) sausage roll but is big enough to dry a burly bloke like me, and dries quickly in fresh air. 3. Tank bag. I was amazed how useful th...

Re: Lake District Suggestions.

Some years ago we stopped at Quiet Site close to Ullswater. Had its own bar with open fire; very cosy, very relaxing. Site was ok too, but a bit expensive. It's still there winning awards but don't know if the bar arrangement survives ;)

Re: bmw 800 or yam 660

The 660 engine is completely gutless especially with a headwind/motorway ride. After 25K on mine I can't take it any more so I'm going for a bigger engine.
