Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Great idea. You can also use what is called a Nilos seal below the bottom taper roller bearing which does a better job of sealing than the original washer. I took mine apart and drilled the headstock of the frame tapped it M6 and put in a grease nipple so i could fill the void with good quality mar...

Re: Which bike?

I recently rode with a hymalyan on salisbury plain... His suspension was soft and it kept getting stuck bottoming out... But maybe with springs for his weight and a slower pace it would have been better... Park your ass ona few and test ride then you'll find what you want nearly.. Then set it up as...

Re: Update on the situation in Spain

Three of us left bikes in Spain, rode them over early mach just before everything closed and got back on 9th March. Finally decided over last couple of days to have them shipped back to us at home as no chance of getting the planned outings. Our local Spanish friends have kept us informed of events...

Re: viewranger subscrition ?

I only paid for the East Anglia OS mapping which lasts for ever rather than an annual subscription for areas i am less likely to ride in. I have loaded the App onto my tablet and phone with preloaded maps so i don,t use any phone data.

Re: Quiet stove

I love my Coleman dual fuel stove. It runs a bit dirty at altitude with unleaded fuel but i carry a Sigg fuel bottle and a syphon tube to get fuel out of my bike fuel tank if i run out. Parts are easily available like generator tube and pump seal etc if you do need to rebuild it. It is not particula...

Re: KLX 250 ???

I owned a Kawasaki KLX300R and it was a very easy and forgiving bike to ride. It took a fair bit of modding to get legal for the road and of course was only kickstart. The KLX250 is a bike i often considered with better suspension than the Honda CRF250L,all the modern stuff like fuel injection,road ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I loved my Harley Davidson MT350 and should never have sold it. It had looks only a mother could love(just like the Himalayan) It was overweight and underpowered(see previous comment) The Himalayan is actually heavier than the MT350 and even though it has 60cc more capacity it certainly has no more ...

Re: Best sat nav for green laning

I used to own the Garmin MAP60C which was a great unit for walking,cycling and motorcycling. I upgraded to the Garmin MAP 62 STC which has the City Navigator Europe and full UK O/S mapping. It took me ages to work out how to formulate and download routes and to install plug ins etc to allow the tran...
