Re: viewranger

Apparently a few of the more high tech phone cameras can be killed by vibration, so beware of hard mounting. A chap I know thinks his Huawei's camera died after he fixed it to his bike (GS) and recently TMF was complaining about an I-phone too. Not sure if its isolated incidents, but be careful if ...

Re: viewranger

Does anyone use viewranger for navigation out on the lanes? If so what are you using it on? any advice would be a great help. Yep, best thing I ever used to help me get lost. :lol: I still use a very early version of the VR app, as the newer versions are too busy with trying you to share routes and...

After over 4 decades of riding, I'd say the most important skill is not falling off.

It's one I still hope to master!

(although on my 950 I always opt to let the thing fall gently, rather then fight it and have it win!)
There speaks a trail rider of experience..... MUCH experience! :-)

How about, "I see that you don't have the optional self-righting function on that model".

ROFL!!! :D

Re: Due to lighter flow, the maxi pad is now a mini-pad

So far in the 50 miles I did today it was returning about 130mpg which should give a tank range of 300 miles
Impressive economy. Why bother with electric with that level of mpg?

My issue with 125's was the struggle on big A roads and the like from the 12hp. Perfect in an urban environment though.

Re: France and Germany at the moment.. My findings

I travelled through a lot of countries in late August, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Germany. I found them all to be more vigilant and observant of the rules than the British and I felt a lot safer there. That is hardly surprising given our government’s lack of planning and inconsistent messag...
