Re: 2020 ABR Ireland Rally - Sign Up Thread 8 - 10 May

Your best bet in terms of coming from the ferry port is to take the M! tunnel out of the port. That brings you to the M50 [the Irish version of the M25] but its the best way round. Tunnel is tolled €3 outward after I think 10am and well worth it. If you are looking to exit Dublin to Enniskillen fast...

Re: Pacemaker's owners club

Wishing you a speedy recovery Richard. BTW, If you’ve got an induction hob at home it would be worth asking if it’s safe to use. I remember reading somewhere that they can interfere with pacemakers. Hope your back on two wheels in time for Spring. 👍 Check out induction motors then, because some diy...

Re: Pacemaker's owners club

Is anyone a pacemaker user. Much to my surprise, the NHS is giving me a pacemaker for my 60th Birthday! I'm currently sitting on a ward listening to a lot of bleeping, and have my very own telemetry box around my neck. Does anyone here have a pacemaker...any hints or tips esp regarding motorcycling...

Re: What would put you off buying a GS1200/1250?

I love my old K bikes and happily take them on fire roads and lanes. They are very cheap to buy, they haven't let me down, parts are easy to come by and despite an interesting reputation there is always someone who can fix them. Varying 90-100 bhp which is more than adequate and hitting 253-290 kilo...

Re: France recommendations ?

For a good few years, back in the 90s, my wife and I would have a month in France on our bikes for less than the cost of a 2 week package holiday. Everyone is different and likes different things but this it what we do if we’re on this kind of trip. Camping municipal, as many have suggested, but al...

Re: Petrol: supermarket vs shell etc

The way it seems to work in France is the regular 95 octane is 10% ethanol and 98 is 5% ethanol. My bikes do not like 10% ethanol and absolutely hates the stuff with 15% ethanol. As far as I can see the addition of ethanol reduces mileage so effectively you are 'burning' the ethanol for nothing and ...

Re: Corsica & Sardinia Motorcycle Tour from the UK

Corsica, a lovely island and great for biking. Was last there in 1985 on a new K100. Our lids were nicked from our tent porch one night whilst we slept. We had to ride lidless 50 miles or so from Bonifacio to Ajaccio to buy new ones. Got stopped by a m/c gendarme en-route but only because he was in...

Re: Corsica & Sardinia Motorcycle Tour from the UK

Got an invite from a French friend whose grandfather was from Corsica. I didn't realise he still owns the home place on Corsica and he has suggested a trip there to look at some old motorbikes they still have in the 'grange'. Direct flight from Limoges too. He doesn't know much about the bikes other...
