  2. Cheapie eBay Handguards

    Accessories
    Several types starting from around a tenner on fleabay, double mounted too! Also some single pony mountes starting around 18 quid. Anyone fitted a pair on their bike? I know they are often lacking in the weather protection side, but I can soon sort that as I used to do on my trailies 2 years...

    Africa Twin
    I've read around here on this. I tried the other day and only broke the ratchet of my socket set. Then I got a socket bar and tried again - can't budge the bas****.

  4. New Front Discs

    Varadero
    Coming up to MOT time again and I fear that my brakes might not pass. The discs are well worn. (Checked them last year and they were less than 3mm!) If the old girl has got another long trip in her then I think I should replace the discs. Has anyone any experience of 'cheapie' replacement...

  6. Alsi Camping gear

    Travel
    On at the moment from last week sometime. Cheap tote bags and other odds and ends though not as good a selection as I have seen in Lidl. The cutlery sets are good though.... Tesco cheapie tents may be cheaper, but I believe the Aldi/Lidl ones will last a bit longer in wet weather :)

    SWMBO has kindly consented to give me a pass-out in early to mid September, so I am looking... again, at a trip to the Pyrenees and/or the Alps. The dates are a bit vague at present, as I cannot go until I have finished Harvest, but I hope that this will be around the 7-10th of the month. Just...

    Travel
    I am hoping to go to Normandy with my 12yo lad at the end of May to spend a few days looking at the D-Day sites and having some nice meals. BUT, with the pound plummeting against the Euro, a low cost trip is creeping up if we go the B&B route as originally intended last year when i did my...
