tootle

  1. BMW
    As part of my attempt to find another bike that can give something like the reduced knee angle of the maxi scoot I have been using for the past year, I am looking at the 1200GSA, as according to what I have read somewhere, it has one of the best knee angles on the market and with all the easy to...
  2. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Decided to have a little tootle over to Whitby on Sunday taking in some new trails (well to me anyway). Did a couple of the usual on the way to Pickering and then went off into no mans land, not 100% on the legality of them but there on the map, no signs up and a couple of bike tyre tracks so...

    Last minute thing -- to do the garden -- or head to the hills Found myself some new tracks to play about on Came scross this rather weird wood sculpture in the middle of nowhere.Strange folk about these parts, banjos at dawn style :D Don't know if it's supposed to be a mushroom or...

    Very last minute I know, but the weather looks great for tomorrow, even the darn wind will drop! The 'alp needs a run as much as me, so I'm going for a tootle over into West Shropshire, do a few lanes then on to some around the Long Mynd and see what happens after that... Push off from my...

    My old instructor happened to mention he's planning a trip to germany in april, 5 - 6 days staying in Ruedesheim, since the 'ring' is an hour away it would be rude not too! I reckon 2 up fully loaded around the ring on a grubby transalp is not such a good look considering there will be all sorts...

    My missus did her CBT in the summer and finally she now got her 1st bike, a 2006 Honda CG125. So this afternoon we went for a tootle, i expected her to ride slow since this was the 1st time out since 5 hours CBT back in June. So in true 'instructor style' i rode trying to watch her back, and...
  7. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Any one slightly keen to try their hand at off road riding? We have an area sorted for Saturday, and with this weather it should be fantastic. From what I know so far, it will be as hard as you want to make it, a tootle with willing support or a blast. Dropping bikes is by no means compulsory...

    If, on a dry, bright and sunny december day, you are for whatever reason unable to cope with the speed limit, TAKE THE BUS I am so sick of riding on a nice set of twisties and then having some bloody pensioner tootle around going barely 50 when 80's allowed... (Not on a road such as this...

    After having a tootle round the car park on fewtrees '99 RD07a I realised my '94 RD07 vibrates a bit more, and has done ever since I've owned it. So, I'm now on the quest for some silky smoothness :shock: I think the ignition's OK (judging by the colour of the 'plugs and the fact that it...

    The attached instructions are apparently from a 1962 Honda Cub riders' manual. 1. At the rise of the hand by Policeman, stop rapidly. Do not pass him by or otherwise disrespect him. 2. When a passenger of the foot hooves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously at first. If...
