Re: Forst of Bowland campsites?

We have space on our site if you get stuck for some where, we're near Kirkby Stephen so not in the area you are wanting, but handy for the Dales and Lakes. Facility are basic (toilet block & shower.) and we only have a few spaces so don't normally advertise. We'll be out all day Sunday but if you pm...

Re: A new problem has appeared.

I agree that any one causing a tailback should if possible pull over , but round wear I live we have a well known local cycling club & a lot of the members take their cycling very seriously, I just cycle to keep the weight down & keep fit but some of them around hear go out on fully kitted out time...

Re: A new problem has appeared.

Why can't you just except your going to get held up on our overcrowded roads by some thing or other like tractors, oaps etc & stop having a go at o...

Re: Crf rally 2017 model bugging me

Put the standard exhaust back on, quick n easy to try.
After that move onto the harder stuff.

Re: 701 enduro buying advice

Header is stainless but dirt gets baked on and it looks shite unless you scrub it off. Fork seals can need changing due to dirt getting in the seals, I'd consider it a plus point that they've been changed and not just a quick "fix"with a seal cleaner, that's not to say a seal cleaner isn't worth usi...

Re: Old coach Road...?

Currently you could do it on just about anything with a reasonable ground clearance, the Keswick end is a little rocky but nothing major.

Re: brittany ferrys ....cancel more routes etc

We've already had the email, to be honest I'll be surprised if our holiday goes ahead as as everything was booked through them as a package. I'm self employed and mainly work from home so I'll be able to get some work done when we come back, I'm more concerned about travel insurance and potential in...

Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

This is where Royal Enfield have got it so right with the price of the 650. The list price is very competitive, and never discounted. Used ones cost nearly as much as new ones. After they launched it, they were encouraging test rides even if you had no immediate intention of buying. But you had to ...

Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

I've not ridden the 790 but I'm sure it's a nicer bike than the T700, I have ridden the T 700 and it's a nice bike, my wife liked it enough to buy one, she wanted a lighter bike than her old AT but no more power and the T700 fit the bill. She did wonder about a 790 but I'm afraid KTM needs to addres...

Re: viewranger subscrition ?

I don't use the subscription (other than last year for French maps) I just buy the maps tiles as I need them, you buy a number of points and each tile costs a number of points, this way you always own the tiles. Or you can use the subscription and have the whole of the UK. I think of it like buying ...
