Re: Vaude Mark 3

It must be 10 years old, but, absolutely waterproof and in good condition.

You're in Poole? Our children/grandchildren are in Poole, so could drop it that way

Re: Multi-bike policies

I've had a policy with Hastings for the last 3 years, just for the one bike. Yesterday added my daughters 125 to it which I'm buying from her.

Re: BMW R1150GS

Very nice indeed, you'll enjoy the torque. get yourself over to UKGSER, look for the posts from GSJohn, he programmes ECU chips which increase torque, HP and MPG, and they work :)

Wither MotionX GPS

Anyone else use the app? Still on my iPhone, but the data and service seems to have gone AWOL, MotionX Road and Terrain maps not available.

Re: Jupiter's Travels - again

Interested to hear there's a Kindle version, will give that a go. I last read it as a spotty student (at Oxford don't you know) in 1983. I'd like to say it inspired me, it did to get out on the bike, but never managed anything further than Europe! Sadly lent my copy to a friend who became a vicar......

Re: Lomo 60 L roll bag

As all have already said, huge, waterproof and versatile. Mine was the bright yellow one, handy for car drivers to notice. But it is huge, so big that it blocked the mirror rear views when used across the rack/seat! Since given away to a friend
