    Maybe a silly question, but what's required for m/c headlamp beams abroad? Is there any country that demands a change of headlamp? I can't imaging that there's an area on a bike similar to a car's headlamp that can be blocked off to avoid dazzling people. Anyone have any experience of...

    Hello there! I arrived in Holland today to celebrate my mother's birthday after quite a nerv-wrecking ride from Bristol to Harwich. It seems the fuel pump is not (or hardly) working anymore. I can manage 80 miles at 70 mph on a full tank (had this bl**y wind today as well :x ) Only just made...
