Re: good riddance

I was almost blown up by an IRA bomb in London in the early 70s. I have no sympathy for terrorism...but equally if you look at how Northern Ireland was in those days you can understand why some people took it up. The most important thing about McGuinness was that in the end, he took a risk for peace...

Re: Adventure spec bashplate ktm 990 adv

I'd be interested to hear what you think of the bike once you've formed an opinion of it. Especially vs the BMW 800 and Tenere.

Re: Adventure spec bashplate ktm 990 adv

That's the same as the GiT one that I've got. It's a mixed bag, TBH. Here's the negative: Anything you can squeeze into the front compartment will get wet and soaked in short order.
