Re: 2017 DAKAR rally...wtf...!!!

Opolgies to the OP for digressing, but as loads of others are....... :whistle: Having done a few enduro's - the Welsh 2 Day, Powys etc thought I'd try a Welsh rally for a change Lining up at the start of the Cambrian on a WR 250 next to a CRF 230 and Triumph 800 wondered which one of us had chosen t...

Re: TTR 600 footpeg replacements

They do look posh - maybe a bit too posh for me!

I don't suppose you know it they're the same fitment as a WR??

Re: humour time...fizzy or ap50?

My 'unrestricted ' SS 50 (can't imagine how slow a restricted one must have been!) had pedals

I can't imagine any other way of using so much energy for so little effect!!
