If you have been watching the for sale/wanted forum you may have spotted I have agreed to buy Stanbloke's Varadero. I am picking it up this Sunday (27th) from Befordshire. I have a very good friend who has the misfortune to live in Milton Keynes and had planned picking the bike up with a boozy...
FFS, here we go again. A full night of lashing rain and we're gettin' out the sandbags. All vehicles have been moved to higher ground and everyone's keeping an eye on that lake that breached its banks last summer and flooded us out. This is getting to be a regular habit. It took me 3 hours to...

Anybody else run the gauntlet this morning? Just spent two hours between Gloucester and Southampton in howling wind and lashing rain with the additional excitement of rubbish, branches, leaves and other debris in the road. Guess it livens up an otherwise boring ride. Feel like I've been through...
I work in Swindon and live in Southampton, just wonder if any of u guys can advice me on some good routes, may be green lanes around the areas mentioned ?
Forget to mention, I have a TA 650 + a TDM 900.
I'll sort out some photos when I stop hurting - these are pretty big bikes to manhandle through puddles.
OK, so the puddles are about 12-15' long, and well over 1' deep (my boots and more, even then not a solid base).
Oh, they are also the full width of the lane, and have upto 2" of water at...
