Over the Bwlch, Rhigos, Penderyn, HeolSenny, Sennybridge, Llanwrthted wells, Abersycan Via a nice forest...

    Last week BigW42, Paul & I took part in our annual boys own adventure, we had decided to explore the Highlands of Scotland in just 4 days due to other commitments like officiating at a car rally & BigW42 (Lee) having to catch a flight back to Iraq. Paul had never been any further North than...

    I've never met the woman but I did meet Nick last night for a swift pint as he was over in London. And lo and behold he pulls out a T-shirt his wife has embroidered for me. IMG_0006 by whealie, on Flickr I'm chuffed to bits. Thanks very much for making the effort. Top present!:cheers:
  4. National Meets
    Just a few more ideas for rideouts at the National, if anyone is interested or willing to put themselves forward as ride leader / tour-guide for something loosely based around the following that would be splendid..:thumbup: Scenic Road ride North to the Coast to the see the Seals - we are...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...
  7. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Yesterday I received a text from Mike inviting me to join him for an evening trail ride around my local area in North Wales. Seemed a slendid idea, being that I'd just finished patch painting my AT following my spill a few weeks ago, & fitted a replacement screen ( Thanks to Stormforce8 for the...
  8. Transalp
    Dropped off my old '96 Transalp and picked up a CBF 600 SA on Saturday. The brakes are phenomenal and it corners like it's on rails. It's very forgiving, changing course mid-corner takes just a wee nudge on the bars without any drama. Doubling the cylinders makes a big difference right...
  9. Insurance
    I spoke to my insurer Carol Nash and told them that the bike is ridable and that I wanted to pursue a claim against the other party as it was entirely their fault in my eyes (and in the eyes of an independant witness). I was advised that I would need to make a claim against MY insurance policy...

    The weather looked promising this morning so I set off up the A7 with nowhere specific in mind, just out for a run, I even had the sunglasses on until I stopped for a coffee and bacon roll at Powmill cafe. :) Leaving there I headed up to Creiff then along to St Fillans where I took the only 2...
  11. Africa Twin
    I met you in march in Sweden, after you had made a troubled journey from France. Your master was reluctant, but I succeeded in freeing you from your bonds. But for three more months I had to wait before I could embrace you. Finally we made our way to Norway, and we visited the place where I...

  13. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Shamelessly stolen idea from a post by pdsquire! "And it would be great for supporters to be at Jelly's from 7am on the day to wave us through..." Planning on being there to do just that. Probably camping in the field opposite on Friday night (might pop in to the pub for a swift...

The thankyou's: Royster; thanks for the arranging with the ferry companies to have you bookings changed to my...
  16. Chatter
    This is not a criticism of officers that are out there doing the job. This is a criticism of 'the process' and lack of resources. On Monday my wife was in the local library and had her bag stolen with all her keys, cards, phone, specs etc. She was probably targeted because she had her hands...

    OK. Last year a quote from Aquote for £167 (AT and Duke) tempted me away from Carol Nash. Here we are one year later and a claim free year. 9 years ncd, no marks on the licence thay want £315 this year. Not only that, but they ASSUME I'm going to renew and send me the certificate with the...
