I recently sold my Varadero that was comfortable for long distance but is a big lump, not at all nimble & heavy at slow speed will do lanes but I am not confident in muddy (surfaced) lanes. I have a Trans...

Re: A bike and a lych-gate

Did it yesterday on the Africa but did a more eastern set of locations, including the chapel, so missed the dam as the sky looked very black & the forest roads would be very slow after the bad weather. Most roads quiet except around Rhayader many GS & KTM.

Re: A bike and a lych-gate

If I do that route past the dam up to Devils Bridge I will use my 99 Africa, which does not VMCC qualify, as it is more comfortable than my 92 transalp for long runs as it will be a 10+ hours (300 miles) trip from home. But as the weather is not very good and days are shortening I may leave it until...

Perhaps he was doing the Hereford/Mid Wales VMCC Cwmpas challenge, visiting locations throughout Mid Wales as the dam is on the list

Re: 12v USB power question?

I usually connect the relay switching into the rear brake switch power feed (not the switch to light wire!) as that is usually near the battery and accessible without taking the loom cover off a as most of my bikes are too old for lights always on.

Re: 12v USB power question?

I have an accessible tamiya plug for an Optimate charger that I plug my USB converter in when required. It connects to the battery via a fuse and supplies a live supply when the motor is off (my GPS internal battery is rubbish so needs to be plugged in most of the time). Used it for many years on ma...
