Re: Norwegian National Tourist Routes

Which way would you recommend to get across to Norway, cheers Spud ;) We've just been over and used the Harwich to Esbjerg ferry then up through Denmark and ferry from Frederikshavn to Oslo. The ride through Denmark is dull and the Frederikshavn to Oslo ferry is treated as a booze cruise by Norwegi...

Re: Pannier review in Issue 3

I'd say the same for the Worldbeaters I've fitted to my Yam Tenere. They weren't the cheapest (£500 without fitting kit) but they're well made, they're anodised inside & out and they crash well. They survived a 2 week trip to Norway earlier this month where the conditions would have wrecked cheaper...

Re: Pannier review in Issue 3

I see your point on a summary but the choice should be down to, cost, functionality, the fitting of and removal etc. Also do you want a fixed lid or a removable one? Along with other features unique to each make. All this was well explained in each review. So does it really need a summary? More the...

Re:ELEPHANT RALLY 2011

Thanks for the advice Andy, much appreciated. So, this is the score so far; Tyres - sorted. Heated jacket - sorted, I've gone for a Gerbings Ferry - booked for Thursday. Marigolds - bought three pairs. I'm now thinking maybe I should pack a bivi rather than a tent and luxuriate in the extra pain. W...

Re:ELEPHANT RALLY 2011

Bike magazine did a feature on the Elephant a wee while ago - i'm fairly sure it was within the last year (memory not that bad!) It was last year. It was me who persuaded Neil Murray to go and after he'd sold the idea to Bike they sent him to do the article and Chippy Wood to take the photos. I thi...

Re:ELEPHANT RALLY 2011

Just thought I'd resurrect this thread as it's on next weekend and I've just decided I'm going – it's far too warm in the UK for my liking. So, should I take the Tiger or the DRZ? Take the Tiger because you'll flog the guts out of a DRZ on the autoroutes. I've been three times, once on a K100RS, on...

Re: Bivi bags??

Motorcycle diary Scotland 041.jpg Single skin tent and tarp..under 1.5 kgs in total. The tarp lets me leave the flap open to reduce condensation and also gives me a workspace in the rain. Suits me. I've got an Outdoor Designs Ridge Raider single skin tent and the air permeable Goretex means you don...
