  6. How do they do that?

    Bodgers Corner
    Seen some really nice, really neat work. How's it done? Apart from welding, which I cannot do, what is the secret to nicely worked edges, curved sections, etc? I can buy metal sheet from B&Q, or the Estonian equivalent. I can cut with tin cutters. I can de-burr with an angle grinder, and...

  10. Mods for trials riding

    I took the XR400 on the Exeter long distance trial last weekend. All the off road sections were hill climbs which I was doing slowly in 2nd. However on a couple of occasions I rolled off for a sharp corner and the loss of speed combined with the gradient meant that the bike started to bog as...

  17. Transande

    I've just got back from escorting a group of journalists on a trek across the Andes in Salta Province, Argentina. We were on sections of the famously treacherous road 'La Cuarenta', detouring off onto dry riverbeds and through tight canyons. We were in 4x4's I'm afraid - it would have been...
