Re: Tell me about HJC Helmets

... hard to describe the effect, not a major issue. I love my Arai, but the prices are just too high, my HJC have been a very good replacement for my road riding usesage. The Arai is still my track lid, as it gives me great vision when I have my head down :) Happy lid selecting, hopefully it takes ...

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Went on the Look Lean and Roll course. Great fun. Really crank over the bike constantly. I dont think I do too badly on the road but 90% of the time we are up right on this course 98% of the time we are on the edges of the tyres! It was a wet day and at first I didn't feel it but when ...

Re: Rossgo's Trip Away!

It's best not to have an exact plan IMHO. weather, traffic, road closures can change routes at any moment. Realistically you will do well to average more than 45mph over the day off the motorways. Add in fuel stops, lunch and drinks stops and doing 250 ...

... of it more as 5 back to back days out than a cast in stone route plan with specific objectives that have to be completed each day. My first big road trip we were too ambitious on daily mileage and it became a slog at times. With experience you realise just going with the flow is better. Some ...

Re: Rossgo's Trip Away!

Cheers Stonsie. I guess it is a lane then? Is It not a two way road more of a 'pull in to let cars past' type road then?

Re: Rossgo's Trip Away!

I haven't done the B6160 for a while but I enjoy that type of road, I prefer naked bikes so top seed runs are rare for me and you won't get one on there really.


As for being in God's own county (lol) South Yorkshire is right on the southern boarder.

Missed out the North Pennines due to mileage and hours. I wish I could ...

Re: KTM 790 Duke at Pikes Peak

If I was looking for a true enduro bike to really get off-road and cover big miles I’d be more keen on something like that KTM than a multi enduro. I love my Multi to bits, but it’s a freaking tank. I’ve done years and years of off-road riding and nothing ...

Streetfighter 1098 test ride

... and is still on an Irish plate. As with all test rides i took it a bit leisurely to start. the traffic round the dealers was chaotic due to some road works but did give a feel for just how manageable the bike is. Its easy to filter through traffic. Easier than the Multi as its so slender. one ...

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

And who’s definition of “grown up” is he using??

My definition is getting a big boy job and being able to afford a nice bike (lol)

Doesn’t sound overly grown up to get angry with a road user that is going to have absolutely no effect on your trip.

Maybe I don't need another bike after all.

An hour out on the Multi feeling the front wheel skimming the road at xxx mph is very life affirirming.
