Re: EU. In or out?

Single-seat road-legal enduro bikes were made exempt from the ABS rules...and quite a few others as well. No doubt the views I made known were taken into consideration...along with those of others. With the UK outside the EU...my views would not even have registered. But you can bet the legislation...

Re: Route Advice please - Calais to Carcassonne (ish)

Excellent suggestion. Thanks 8-) . The more I think about it, the more I think we need to head down the middle of France on a scenic route rather than down the east side. The main focus of our trip is north west Spain so it seems to make sense that we hit the Pyrenees maybe a bit further west than C...

Route Advice please - Calais to Carcassonne (ish)

We may have to rethink our route to Carcassonne via the Eastern side of France (as per my other post) due to the mileage, as it’s coming out close to 1300 miles and this trip we want to do less miles per day but we’ve only got 4 days riding to get through France from Calais. So, as an alternative is...

Re: EU. In or out?

So much division and derision being talked about these days and so much of it being blamed on Brexit: the fact that it has put friend against friend and ripped families apart. Only if you let it. A friend and I are planning a 6 month long trip, heading east towards Magadan or however far we get. Ju...

Re: EU. In or out?

Rob....dare I say 'proportional representation' might be the answer? However whilst theoretically it would represent the public's views properly, it seems in practice it leads to a weak government... :? :?

Re: Getting my bike down to Folkestone from Scotland

It's worth a trip there, if your passing. I was there in 2015. The first bike in the line is my old Fazer 1000 8-) . I'd like to be able to tell you that I wheelied all the way down the straight through the gears...but I can't :lol: . http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o294/Scott_rider_photos/IMG_01...

Re: Getting my bike down to Folkestone from Scotland

I rode one in Europe last year. Beautiful bike. Power everywhere and a lot of it too 8-) . The only thing I didn't like was the vibes through the seat but that might have been unique to the bike I rode :?.
