Re: Motorcyclists.....what ya got?

A 2017 V-Strom 650 as my commuter. Got fed up with a stupidly expensive train ticket for a rubbish service. Test rode and loved the Himalayan but my commute has until now involved a bit of the M1 and I just wanted a little extra ooomph - although I'm a potterer on a powered two wheeler as well as on...

Re: Tent advice - Lunar Solo

Fresh from the workshop. Lifter poles for Lunar or similar. 50 cm long + tips, 28g each and 28cm long when folded. I'll work a price out and get them added to the shop for anyone interested. I'll list them individually rather than a pair as some folk may only want the one. https://2.bp.blogspot.com...

Re: "trail centre" vocabulary

On the first WRT LHC I rode with Reg, I clearly recall, Reg, Pickers, Scott of the Woods, and me, I confess, :oops: repeatedly using the phrase "that was RAD man" after one particularly 'gnarly' section of singletrack.

enjoy it Reg. Channel that inner gnar! :grin:

Re: WTD Brooks Cambium C15

I've a similar but deeper looking mark on my C17, in a similar position on the saddle's nose, and it's had at least a year's use, if not more, since being like that with no issues.
