Re: not a proper adventure bike

What would you have done ?.......... Sometimes a quip comes to mind straight away other times only a few hours after, so 50/50 whether I would have said something immensely funny and scathing or just helped to pick it up and said very little. Having thought about it (not instant on this occasion) I...

Re: A new problem has appeared.

Re: A new problem has appeared.

Same local to me on the A737, 3 cyclists on the road together and a 3.5 mile tailback behind them (just checked on maps). Luckily I was going the other way. Yes, they have the right to be there, however are they so stupid as to not realise that they are causing a huge queue, or do they just not care?

Re: Advice sought

The advice to stop more often is excellent, 5 or 10mins off the bike each hour will make all the difference. The Tiger was one of the most comfortable bikes I have had, just the screen and getting hot legs drove me a bit mad. If you want some more "Character" from the engine just loosen a spark plug...

Re: Bmw new no maintemce chain

To me Zero maintenance would mean no need to adjust or lubricate, but still needs cleaning, as it will, like everything else, get mucky. Not sure you can guarantee a chain won't stretch without making it very heavy, which will reduce performance, so is there a benefit? No need to lubricate is a bene...

Re: Scottish Ferries ... all OK ??

Calmac are running reduced capacity, so some routes (Arran, Cumbrae and Bute local to me for example) can be difficult to get on and no guarantee of getting back, so best to be early or book if you can especially as some ferries don't have much space for bikes. Western are usually OK, they just trun...
