  2. The Daily Commute

    Photography
    I've no idea if this will take off but following on from a thread that Whealie started where the last few posts have been pictures of the days commute. So, how was your commute today? Anything worth taking a picture of? I'll start the ball rolling (if it's going to roll at all that is!) This...
  3. Auvergne 2012 chasing the usual suspects

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    we went to the Auvergne last year but due to various circumstances we missed out on most of what we’d planned to do, so we went back this year. I actually have very few pics to go with this, which is a shame cos the scenery is stunning & the roads wonderful, but this lot are not into photos &...
  4. Sixpenny Handley

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    There's a real quaint little village in Dorset called Sixpenny Handley, I've passed through it many times in the past when I drove trucks and even on the bike when heading for the south coast but I'd never ridden the trails around there. So with Steve delaying his work until the next day and the...
  5. Highland Glens, castles & bridges

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Decided to head to Skye, seeing as I hadn’t visited the island this year and the weather at the moment is being very kind to us locals i.e it’s not snowing or freezing. Nice and dry & sunny at home, but as I got nearer to Inverness and Loch Ness, the cloud cover became complete, as can be seen...
  6. Drizzle & Spray

    Helmets
    I have a Shark S900 helmet. In most respects it's very good: snug fit (suits my head shape) fairly light, quite quiet, the internal anti-mist coating works well, etc. But I have one major problem once the roads get damp: whatever treatment the visor has been given means that spray, and light...

  9. Filtering problems

    Riding
    Was coming back from LWR's BBQ last weekend. Going through Nairn and was filtering in and out of a traffic hold up. I was taking my time and had made two or three manouvers and filtered in front of a yellow Passat. Well, the feker was right up my exhaust pipe,wouldn't let me in and there wasn't...
  10. Helmet - form over function

    Helmets
    As Derek Jameson might say, 'Is it me!' I would like a helmet where the visor, when lifted, goes into the helmet or a second skin. What do I mean? Well, any of you who ride at night and in the rain surely must suffer when the rain goes down in the inside of the visor and then car headlights hit...
  11. North West Posse Christmas Rideout

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    So we met at the services which no longer exist. And we rode into the hills - some of which were shrouded in mist. And we travelled on roads - some of which were covered in ice. And it was a really good day out. Highlights in chronological order : - Seeing Austin on his way to work waving at...

    Transalp
    Hi all, Bought my 08 700 transalp about six months a go, It was on the rebound of my last love a 04 varadero which looking back I should have kept:confused: .

  20. Tips for night riding in the rain please!

    Riding
    Is it just me or is riding at night in the rain incredibly stressful? I had to ride back to South Wales from Manchester yesterday afternoon, no option. Left around 15:30 - 16:00 in light rain, got my gear on so not too concerned but visibility is pretty poor; lots of crap being thrown up by...
