Re: Yamaha RD250C 1976 Rolling resto and daily rider

Great project,you are really getting on with it quicker than i would. I owned a few RD,S in my youth an RD250E ,RD200DX,RD400C,RD400DX,RD350LC X . Great bikes and they all suffered terribly from a boy racer who didn,t know his way around a tool kit :oops: :oops: :oops:

Re: Msr dromesdry water carry alternatives?

I have used Platypus 2 litre water containers for years they fit in your luggage easily and come with either a plain cap or click stop pouring spout available as an extra. When empty they roll up and take up next to no room.

Re: Bmwf800gs

Hi,these engines are known for their reliability with some members on the BMW GS forum seeing over 100,000 miles with no major issues. There was an issue with some of the early bikes cooking the stator coils but BMW changed the stator and flywheel on the later models. My 2009 model only had 16,000 m...

Re: |KTM 990R

Glad you sold the bike ok. I left this forum once because of the personal attacks on people,their bikes and the prices that they wished to charge for stuff they were selling. I agree that sometimes a gentle hint that you may be expecting too much for it or equally you are under selling yourself can ...

Re: end of garmin maps on i offer

I purchased the latest version of city Navigator and everything works perfectly on my Garmin MAP62STC. I even got a little tutorial of how to install and get the unit to use the...

Re: TRF forum still offline

I gave up with the TRF years ago. I still have respect for people who are fighting to keep our green lanes open and in use and applaud them for doing so but there is always squabbling and dissent going on at national level. I used to enjoy the local meets and runs out but some of the runs were overs...
