Re: Would a Bivvy be any good?

Get a cheap hammock with bugnet from Amazon for around £20, or a slightly more expensive one from DD Hammocks, add a tarp for shade from the sun, or shelter from the rain. A tarp also makes a great place to chill out when setup in porch mode

Re: Hammock Wildcamping in UK

I’ve just taken delivery of a custom made Warbonnet Diamondback top Quilt that I order during the Black Friday sale, but the sting was in the import charges of just under £99.
It’s a 20’F (-6’C) rated quilt with +3 oz of 850 fill. This is to go with the rest of my Warbonnet hammocking setup

Re: Tom Tom Routes To Garmin

I’d like to use routes I generate in mapsource on a tomtom PND or better still use the tomtom app so I can use the app via CarPlay.

Re: Tier 4 Riding?

Re: Snugpak sleeping bags.

My only snugpak item is an under blanket for a hammock which is ok, your options are only limited by your budget. My most recent purchase is a Cumulus goose down quilt which arrived last week, and along with my Alpkit PD800 sleeping bag are the two warmest things I use, but at £200+ each I recon the...

Re: Heated waistcoat

That should be “you can’t beat being wrist deep in a furry muff”

Tucano urbano’s are my preferred choice of handlebar muff

Re: Heated waistcoat

Personally I’d go with a heated jacket rather than a heated vest/gilet as the extra heat from the arms will help keep the hands at the extremities warmer

Re: Kit build cars - Caterham/Westfield

Slightly off topic, but take a look at the MK Indy http://www.mksportscars.com/ they’re built locally and use BUSA and GSX motorcycle engines. There’s quite a vibrant track racing scene with these too
