Surrey and Hampshire ride-out Sun 11 Nov

Hi all, as a newbie on the site, just thought I would gauge if there was any interest in a day on the lanes in the Surrey hills / devil's punch bowl,(as I'm a great believer in putting in, and not just taking ;) ) I do a few rides,( but generally with smaller bikes with more of an enduro bias ),but ...

Re: Isle Of Man Trails

How lucky, I just logged on to post a question about the IOM as I'm going over for the TT practice week, and was wondering what the lanes over there were like, to decide what bike to take, and what the by-way laws are? :)
So any pointers would be much appreciated :) and the pic's look great.

Re: medium sized trail bike wanted

When I was on the lookout for commuter, along the lines of a big thumper, I brought a Mk3 Aprilia pegaso, the last of the 5 valve engines and a wider frame. I've taken it on the lanes a few time, and its no plodder, I'm lucky enough to work the other side of some nice green lanes, so its 40 minutes ...

Your right, you don't need mirrors for the test :)

Re: Puncture repair kit - what do I need?

Re: Questions about restoring/making an off-road bike, road legal.

Before you buy, make sure you can trace the Provenance of the bike, if its had a V5c in the past it shouldn't be to hard to get a new one from the DVLA, if its an import or a full on crosser, them that's a whole different ball game. As for the MOT, just about all you need is a bell, and if you elect...

Re: Puncture repair kit - what do I need?

What size tyres levers do you guys use? When at home in your garage is it just a case of the biggest you can get while out on the trail its a case of smaller/ multifunctional ones? (seen ones that double as spanners) I use 12 inch levers in the workshop ( 2 straight 1 crescent/ curved ), and out on...
