Re: First Venture Off of the Black Stuff

Well I've been at it again, went down a very short lane near Hinton Airfield.

Re: Routes to Norway

Norway is very expensive (especially petrol and beer) and speed limits are low and strictly enforced. Can think of better places for a motorbike holiday.

Re: First Venture Off of the Black Stuff

Re: Medium trailie recommendations

BMW GS 650 Dakar wod be my thoughts.
Nice n straight forward bike with not too much power but enough to give a grin.
