Re: EU. In or out?

Here's an idea: those who don't want a confirmatory referendum don't have to vote! Surely that's a win/win? :lol:

Re: EU. In or out?

Quick question: how is having another confirmatory referendum undemocratic?

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

What about..... .... a Kwak Versys 1000? :P My personal opinion: the original model was rushed into production when Kawasaki realised it needed a bike in the "adventure" category. I say rushed as the Mark 1 model that I test rode when they were originally introduced, felt like a Z1000 on stilts wit...

Re: EU. In or out?

...apart from the 5000 steelworkers who get their cards today, and the 20,000 workers in the supply chain. Those jobs are gone as a direct result of Brexit...which many of them were conned into voting for. This is one of the many facts that will be ignored by those who voted to leave. The other day...

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

Reading Bob's reply above reminded me that you really should take the pillion's opinion into account if you will be touring 2-up. I was looking at a DL1000 V-Strom a few years ago so my girlfriend and I took one for a test ride: I had a great time reacquainting myself with the lovely 1,000cc v-twin ...

Re: EU. In or out?

Got the local media all around us this morning as my depot is right next to Scunthorpe steelworks :shock: I'm sure there are different agendas at play with Greybull trying to squeeze the Govt as hard as they can for the bailout but there's a lot of my mates with twitchy bums in my town today Hope i...

Re: Which bike for one returning to overlanding?

I notice that the bikes on your list are comparatively old. Have you thought about a Triumph? For some reason, the residual value seems to be lower on these than on most Japanese and European bikes. For example, I have just sold a late 2014 (2015 model year) Triumph Tiger 800 XCx with cruise control...

Re: EU. In or out?

my opinion really does not matter .. but where there is a will there is a way. .. to see clearly, sometimes it helps to open the eyes. .. simple answers are in front of us all. .. cooperation is actually better than confrontation though it is conflict that has driven mankind to great heights. Ah, n...

Re: EU. In or out?

I remember when May was "elected" by her peers and there were calls from the left for a general election to prove that the Conservatives had the mandate to rule with their new leader. At the same time, they conveniently forgot that Gordon Brown ascended to the position of Prime Minister in a similar...

Re: Cleaning your kit

I recently washed my Kriega R30 backpack for the first time in over 10 years of ownership. I did a quick search for their cleaning instructions on the internet and went with that: bung it in the washer with non-biological washing liquid. The only issue I had was that some stitching came loose but, a...
