Re: Hard shoulder penality

Not on a hard shoulder but still solid white line related. My mate was on his way over to meet up for a ride. Just round the corner from his house is a railway level crossing and the barriers were down as he approached with four or five cars already in the queue. He decided to go to the front of th...

Re: Cruise control on a bike - what are our thoughts?

I’ve got a manual cruise control that is like a clamp on the handlebar that you set your speed with your throttle and then it rests on the brake lever. Mightily invaluable on 125cc bikes as they are a bit vibey so it gives you a chance to rest your hand for a bit when travelling multiple miles. Bene...

Re: A photo you took, today

I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I rode the byway!!!!

Re: Long way up, Electric bikes!

Good to know.
Sometimes I’m just finding the cheapest places and they may not have parking anyway. 👍

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Took the Innova out for a spin today. It’s just got regular road tyres on so I wanted to see how well it would do ‘off-road’. I did a 20 mile motorway blast, some lovely small roads and then most of the Fosseway. The tyres struggled on the muddy stuff but the bikes lightweight kept it going. Looking...

Re: Youngest person to travel around world on a Tenere 700

I think he calls himself Round the world Charlie. I saw he has a Facebook profile and he professed to being big on Instagram (not my thing though)
Apparently he already holds the world record as the youngest person to cycle around the world!

Youngest person to travel around world on a Tenere 700

Just meeting up with a friend this morning at Fowler’s in Bristol. I bumped into a lad called Charlie who at 19 years old is due to set off around the world on his Tenere 700. He’s leaving on Sunday 29th during the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride from Fowler’s. Seemed like a nice guy and it’ll be int...
