Re: What do you Look for in a location for a weekend away on the bike

Maybe room for a fewv tents.

Re: Well that Sucks

That could be repaired by a competent magnesium welder, a quick google turned up a couple worth checking out in the Bristol area. If you order a new one, I bet it has to be ordered from the factory, in Italy, which will be closed for August. Most of the mag welders I've spoken to so far wont do whe...
