Re: Max gear weight for soft pannier

Over the years i have drastically reduced the amount of gear i carry on the bike through experience of what i have used and what comes along for the ride. Because i require a full hammock camping set up with petrol stove,cooking gear,food,cold weather gear and water it can be a bit on the heavy side...

Re: Wheels and tubes ..

Is it that big a hardship to mend a puncture in a tyre on the trail ?? Usually swapping a tube takes 20 mins on the trail Running above 16psi avoids pinch punctures too Do you need to run at 10 psi in reality on trails ? I never found the need and usually run 20 psi all year round I agree,i know it...

Re: Query selling a vehicle

I recently purchased a bike and the seller did the transfer electronically on the DVLA website. He then gave me the green slip and destroyed the rest of the V5. I received the new document less than a week later.

Re: Wheels and tubes ..

I recently purchased an SWM RS650S. The previous owner had done one rally and it had a mousse in the front. I only briefly rode the bike with it in and decided to change it for an inner tube. It was very difficult to get the tyre off(just think trying to remove a tyre with the inner tube still infla...

Re: The new AJP PR7 Adventure

I like the style and the relative light weight. It seems pretty well put together and either it has a lower seat height or it settles on its suspension lower than my DRZ400S. It is the full power version at 54 or 56bhp depending on where you read it. The bike is very smooth to ride and has a great g...

Re: The new AJP PR7 Adventure

Well after all that i couldn,t justify spending £8500 on the AJP and purchased a ten month old SWM RS650r for half the price . It may not be as competant but more than good enough for me.

Re: New UK importer for SWM

I've got a SWM - had it for just over two years. I've no complaints re the bike or my dealer. There are plenty of happy SWM owners in the UK, although the potential £££s loss with the importer failing was a temporary concern. The importer appeared to be out of their depth, frustrating owners and de...

Re: GPX editing

I use bikehike.co.uk/course creator
I use viewranger too but do not like the automatic route generator. With bike hike you can click and edit individual points the save it as a track or route straight to the basecamp files.

Re: The new AJP PR7 Adventure

I think the header in the power up kit is Titanium from a couple of reports i have read. The standard header looks poor in mat black,i can only imagine what that will look like after a couple of months. I will have to get selling my DRZ400 first though.
