Re: France and Germany at the moment.. My findings

We’ve just had a week (by car) in Northumberland that was booked waaay back in January. Our rented cottage was on a hill farm so as remote as you like. Irrespective of the fantastic scenery and roads, everyone we met were pleased to see us and probably 95% were sanitizing, wearing masks indoors and ...

Re: Useless uk quarentine numbers

:roll: Doesn’t change my thought process. If people gave a toss and did the right thing in this situation t would benefit everyone, including themselves.

A lot of those tax dodgers who allegedly didn’t earn any money came unstuck with furlough. It comes back to haunt people in the end.

They shouldn’t need to check as people should be expected to be honourable.
Fat chance with the high percentage of morons in this country.

Shall we all go to Glasgow for a party? ;)

Re: Its quiet, lets stir those little grey cells

Go on a different road - that is waaaay to complicated and hypothetical for an old man to think about, let alone compute.

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Amazon know everything so they must know something you don’t know.....yet.

Re: 701 enduro buying advice

I thought it was with forks extended or you get your eye taken out by a flying screw.
Always how I have burped the forks....not that I ride hard enough to build up any pressure. :(

Re: A new problem has appeared.

Years ago we were in the Dordogne during the Tour so trekked nearly two hours to a suitable vantage point. After the entourage wandered through, a large pack of cyclists shot by in about 10 seconds and that was it. Don’t go on the second day on a straight and flat route. :( Tongue in cheek ‘question...

Re: Nice bike.....but.
