Re: Advice: Headlight deflectors abroad

That isn't just advice, legally you have to carry spare bulbs. Plus wear hi viz in some [most] countries, in France helmets must have reflective strips!! of, and in France these little breath test kits. You need two in case you have to use one of them.

Re: Advice: Headlight deflectors abroad

I could be wrong in this but I asked about right and left hand lenses for the K100 and was told there wasn't any difference, its the one lens.

Re: breakdown/recovery for bikes over 10 years old?

Foggy and Richard Simpson have it covered nicely. But, listen to what Maljones says as this bit is very true. Mine is with Carole Nash and I have the cover, for a 1984 bike. Funny, I had a 2000 Merc, by 2004 it had been 3 times picked up on a breakdown truck. In February 2004 the guy picking it up t...

Re: breakdown/recovery for bikes over 10 years old?

I have a 1984 K100 RT and a 1992 K100LT. No break down recovery, in theory but most insurance policies include it!. Breakdown recovery is oversold, mostly it only picks up the bike and takes it somewhere, you still pay for the repairs. Ok, it covers hotels and onward travel but most of the time that...

Re: Women's Logic

I know a couple who got married years ago, bought a Morris Minor and the three of them lived happily ever after. They never bought another car either. The car is heading for 50 years old now.... The thing is there are key things that makes us who we are. You cannot take them away or change them, its...

Re: Morocco managing the heat

A lot of sound advice. I am not as hardy as ex mil guys but have been cycling in France in high 30s and 40C. Its like everything, prepare, prepare, prepare and know what you face. Right gear, right preparation, right frame of mind. No reason why you cant do it. Windburn: its the same as for frostbit...

Re: Poole to Gijon

Tramp, Its exactly as you say it. K100: when you put the K on the mainstand the crossbar between the two legs is the place to go. You can use a ratchet strap looped around this and through the rim of snowflake front wheel or 3 spoke wheel if yours are upgraded. Don't use the one with the valve in it...

Re: Poole to Gijon

That same service also goes from Rosslare to St Nazaire to Gijon. You get a single berth in a 4 berth cabin so you share with others. But 25 hours on a ship......its long but in fairness it saves a lot of driving. Driving is a long trip with Biarritz being about half way but the road is slower as yo...

Re: New tent bought for next season.

Footprint is a great idea too, but cheap to make yourself. For any decent camping you need a tent this size.
