Re: Teng Tools

I like Teng tools and also Bahco. Never needed to claim off the warranty on either as they’ve never let me down. I also prefer the shot peen finish of them, even with oily hands they’re easy to hold where as a chromed tool becomes very slippery. I’ve had the Halfords Professional/Advanced socket set...

Re: scotland trip

It shouldn’t struggle and doing Scotland by A and B roads is best way to do it. It’s not a race so enjoy the scenery and soak it in.

That’s on a mix of roads including stop start in town as I don’t tend to filter with panniers and the wife on the back. No idea what this equates to in MPG as it wasn’t bought for e...
