They are switched so run independently. When I stick the volt m...

Sinevave revolution, Igaro or k-lite usb?

Re: Emily Chappell rides in mid-Wales

Well a few months back i saw her all loaded up riding through the middle of Kidderminster past the multi storey and hand car wash, on a week day! Now I can pretty much guarantee that none of us on here have ridden that route. Well I haven't and I live there! :shock:

I seem to remember someone mentioning something from Maplin a while ago. I may even run a light off it. Any ...

It was pitch black so head torch on and scrambled down the bank only to be attacked by a very angry dipper that must have been roosting under the bridge. H...
