  6. Just back from Mauritania. Any Q's?

    Just returned home from 7500 mile Mauritania visit. General stuff - Sahara very windy at this time of year and slows (already slow on @) progress.

  9. One-off brake pipe needed.

    I need an extended top brake line for my TA after fitting some small risers on the bars. Local brake boys are no good, so it looks as if I will have to get one made and have it posted. Anyone got a recommendation please?

  12. The bikes home.....

    Well, the new bikes home. A nice 23 mile run including dual track, A & B roads & hilly lanes. Being a returnee to biking anyway, & used to hammering out the miles on a 1961 Brit, it was about as pleasant an experience, in an 'un-classic' way as could be. I'd taken her for a brief 'test spin'...
