Re: Morocco in August and mid life crisis

Not too sure :blush: no SAT NAV ( for Morocco) and couldn't be bothered to get the maps out most days. Just sort of head in the rough direction we wanted to go, have a compass on the bike.

Cheers They are neck ties that you soak in water for 20 minutes and the gel inside soak up the water so they look like giant sausages. Lasted for ages keeping my neck cold and therefore hea...

Re: Tempted

Being tempted by a 2010 R1200GS twin cam, fully loaded with all the extras, low(ish) mileage, :) Most of my use is commuting (across the Yorkshire Dales), with bits of touring as well (no off road) So how about some real world advice about these bikes from those that have owned them ... Issues ... ...

Re: Motorcycle Tarp - Show us yours erected

Why do people put the tarp over the tent? Isn't the tent waterproof? The point of a tarp to me is to give you a much bigger covered area to sit, cook and eat under. Depends on the space available. If you have a small space or will get charged extra for putting it up next to your tent (even if you a...
