Re: Pyrenees June 2016

Three days. i.e. two nights' stay, should do it for Spain. But as always i ask, why Andorra? It's a dump! Regs Simon Ya gotta either enter it or leave it to do the official "Smugglers" route.

Re: Time for the Tories to start the celebrations

Just goes to prove that it's the unelected Union Bosses that are in charge of Labour at the moment. All of them far too arrogant to listen to the message the electorate gave them. At least they won't get any real power for at least another ten years now or until they remember that it's the electorat...

Re: anybody commuting into London daily?

Need to go back to the big smoke for the last year of studies :( What is more, it is the worst time to look for a room to rent pricewise. Have an option to rent a whole property very cheap (bills basically) near Leighton Buzzard. It is a 120mls round trip to uni though, but I will only need to go o...

Re: Advanced bike test with IAM and why i did it....

I've been riding bikes long enough to have some pretty strong opinions. However I ride I must be doing something right, my last crash was in 1978. That was on a GT250 scraping my pegs on a bend in the wet trying to impress a group of girls at a bus stop. I just know that if I did a course I'd find ...

Re: TDM 850 4tx

Excellent bikes - I still have two of them myself (thumbs) Keep an eye on the oil level, as they do use a bit & you will wreck the crank if it gets too low - they can use up to a litre of oil per 1000 miles ! Check the window on the side of the engine with the bike upright & a warm engine. Your crap...

Re: Scottish Borders Campsite?

We use the site in Bellingham when we do the 'Borders' Not too far from Keilder & Hawick. They even have a bunkhouse if you don't fancy hauling your coming kit around. And almost in the middle of the village - so great for about 3 hostelries - the local butcher even does bacon butties in the morning...

It's a nice bike. The colour maybe holding it back.
Would it be better to paint it? Black and yellow maybe?

Or is original better??
The red one is best IMO (thumbs)
