The real spirit of adventure

This guy is riding a Puch Maxi from Mongolia to Austria. This is just his latest posting as he passes through Ukraine, but the others are worth look. The real spirit of adventure? When you get up in the morning and don't know whether your mount will get you through the day, I'd say so. I've enjoyed ...

Re: Lake Como anyone...? https://www.lakecomohostel.com/index.php

Thanks for that Bob, a group of four of us are heading there, via the Dolomites, in early September. I'll keep them in mind, as we don't know within a day or so when we'll get there. We are a disparate group, one 1200 GS, two Honda NCX's and one CRF250 Rally (me). Our aim is to travel less than two ...

Re: Adventure bike Rider festival 2019

Can only reflect what others say, a superb event, well organised and no shortage of things to do. Highlight for me was Elsbeth Beard's talk on Saturday night.
Already booked for next year, see you there.

Re: ABR Festival 2019 - Who's Going

Heading up from South Devon on Friday morning, taking in the Foss way as part of the trip.
Motorways are boring on a CRF250 Rally

Re: Did you buy your bike new or used? Why?

Used, two of them because they're not made any more, being over 30 years old, and my CRF250 Rally as an ex demo as I got £900 off for 400 used miles.

And I'm poor and tighter that tight thing :D

Re: Do-it-all (adv) tyres

Heidenau K60s for me. My riding is a mixture of mostly road and some hard pack gravel and forest type tracks on a CRF 250 Rally. Got about 8000 miles out of the rear and the fronts still going strong at 10,000 miles. For me they've got good on road grip, wet or dry, work well on the type tracks I de...
