Re: Spain back on lock down list...

ok, here we go....devil’s advocate time. I’ll probably get flamed. Why would anyone have booked to go anywhere outside the UK so soon. It seemed obvious there was going to be problems so sit it out and see how things pan out first. Any govt has to react to the situation as quickly or as best it can...

Re: Spain back on lock down list...

I feel very sorry for those folks who conrorm to the guidence and act responsibly who yet again have to suffer for selfish people... But again the English and dare I say UK government's are wrong in their action... A simple mandatory covid 19 test in return to uk at airports or ports with stay at h...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Greetings, Great to read all of your posts, especially as I had considered buying a Himalayan. The weight aspect, and to me heavy clutch, put me off the idea though. Toni, I hope you will not mind my making a safety point that barbecues and similar should not be used in an enclosed space such as a ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Made the decision that there is nothing else I want that would fulfil the job I have for it so I reinsured the Himmy. I've also replaced the steering head bearings+bottom seal and added foam to the seat so it's going to get some use. Decision made so I cut holes in my van and fitted windows, built ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I believe the same calipers are fitted to many Indian built bikes like BMW310gs and the Ktm 390 which are suffering with piston corrosion too. Mines an early 2017 bike with 5k+ miles on it and so far is ok but I don't normally ride in conditions where salt has been used on the roads. I have just ha...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Himalayan musings. The insurance renewal invitation signals the 1st anniversary of Himalayan ownership which for me is often the time to consider a change of bike. Last Friday I did a few errands on the Himmy and as I parked it back in the garage I brushed passed another bike which had just had the...

Re: Ktm 390 adv anyone had a go one one?

I had a one as a loan bike when my 790 went in for a service, my partner has a Himalayan, so some experience...definitely better than the Himalayan but not as good as the 790...to be expected. I found the motor to run out of puff on highway speeds, it seemed a tall bike too..a decent first bike or ...

Re: Dartmoor Wild camping with bike

I have been wild camping all over the UK and Europe for over 20 years and i ignore the legal aspect of it but respect the land and never leave a trace i have been there other than a bit of flattened grass. I take every bit of rubbish away with me and dispose of it correctly. Most of my hammock campi...
