Dunno what the new 'uns are like,but the older S2R/S4R models exhaust used to stick out a bit,...forcing your right ankle at a crazy angle on the footrest.Bloody uncomfortable after 20 mins or so.

That's why I went and no they didn't. I went for a try out on one of them lids that come apart, full/open combo wotsits but they didn't have anything really. The only thing I fancied they didn't have in my size so I fucked off sulking.

Quite warm here today (about 10degC) and clear (yesterday was really murky) so took the Bimmer over to the Steel Horse for a cuppa. Roads were pretty slippery but still had the front come up under power a few times so a good ride was had   big grin1

Yes mate.  The cat is really ugly and spoils the look of the bike IMO, so the cheapest way to cover it up is the cat cover from Tecbike in Germany. £100 posted and I reckon it's well worth it to improve the looks.

It sure is G and it's nae bother tae ride,,,,,,,,,,,give it some welly and it just spins up like fook.

For grins and thrills it beats a road bike any day, back stepped oot and spinning as the front lifts mid turn.

A thought a wiz in fir a bit of grief today, a ran headlong intae a landy outing that'd paid a fair bit of dosh to use the forest tracks.

To ma amazement all a got wiz a series of thumbs up and a wee word from the organizer that it would be best fir me tae leg it 'cause the forestry dudes were tailing them.  yes sir

Tried getting up to the Dovecote at Rivi but failed, far to slippy for the Smt. Just 3-4 laps of the TT and a couple of hours pissing about round Belmont. Barn, no brew. Pretty tame really but the cobwebs are blown off.

I was ummin an arrin about getting out today but thought fukkit,, I put 'windy roads' on me Tomtom fot first time ever and set off to Bala, just for a bimble. Left at 9 and got back about 5 absolutely fooked. What an option, took me on roads I've never dreamed of through Delamere to Ruthin then a few Trough like woopydees over to Bala.

Looked a tad grim dropping into Ruthin but magnificent on the other side, open jacket temps.

One of them days when every bend leads to another fantastic road, you don't know whether to batter it or just sit there staring at the beauty of the place. I think I enjoyed it so much because I was definitely in touring mode and taking it easy. And hardly anything on the roads  bop17 Did see 2 Tunewnos and a nice and shiny black Tuoldo with a girly on the back when I was having me half time cheese pasty in Bala   tuono;

That's always been my problem, getting from here to Wales. Usually go through Glazebury and spend 5-10 minutes on the m6/56 then get off at Stretton, down a49, turn right before Tarporley.

Nipped out after me tea up to the Pigeon Tower at Rivington. Nowt too taxing going up Georges Lane, but jeebuss it's a filling smasher going down the other side to the car park. Too many dogs and scouts to mess about so a steady one it was.

Went up to meet MrB, Mr n Mrs Fatcat, Olof, Felix, and Grin at Middleton in Teesdale yesterday for a pootle round some stunning roads and scenery. Tebay, Brough, M in T, Alston, Brampton, Longtown, Kielder and many places I can't remember, nearly all cracking, interesting and long with not much traffic to get in the way. Cracking weather, cracking roads and top Fuds. A nice 384 mile day for me  yes sir

I hope someones got better pics than me  red1

Not much of a ride but got out on the T for the first time this year. Less than 20 miles but the shoulder held up so I  reckon the Jockland trip in June should be OK.

 smile2  Made it out to the Smoky Mountain State Park yesterday.  Took me a good bit longer than I thought. Absolutely amazing. A good day all around, no coppers and decent flow of traffic. The T ran well and was quite comfy being I had to stop for fuel twice on way out and once on way back   ey1.  Encountered a slight bit of rain but no complaints as it were 85 º  out. Left camera at home without thinking.  slaphead;     Had hopped on with the idea of "Let the road take me  where it wants".

I don't do Hawes to Leyburn anymore Felix, got nabbed there and take a different route now  devious1

Got out meself, had a cracking day. Down the a49 to Prees which was slow in places due to Oulton traffic but no bother on a bike where I stopped to wait for my mates, none turned up [wankers] so I amused myself with thoughts of kicking this cunts head in. No chips egg and beans either as the queue was massive so the dog was gonna get a boot annal cry1 Fuckin nobheads on scooters with big green coats everywhere, it were boiling annall.

Turned down the side of the Raven and went over to Bala past Micks old pub and had a pasty, mistake, chronic indigestion spoiled it for a while but hey ho that soon went once on the 4501 and the epic 5105 to Ruthin. Then I put me curvy roads on and came upon some cracking back lanes. Picture-postcard villages practicaly all the way through Delamere to Stretton where I jumped on the motorway seen as I was fookerred. Only down side of the day was seeing a blue G2 on a pick up in the direction of Chester?  frown1

Stopped near some posh houses in the middle of nowhere at a ford and was admiring the scenery when I heard an 'excuse me, excuse me'', FFS I thought what now, but this nice old bint came over and asked did I want a picture of meself sat on me bike  smiley-laughing002.gif I declined  smile2

Went for a 275 mile jaunt today. Great weather. My T is a tad bit different since installing the dual Arrow system. Has a very cool upper rpm rush. Midrange is softer but sneaky.  Didnt really put the coal to it today as I wanted to get to know her again.  Much quicker gettin through the gears. Front end starts skimming in 2nd and 3rd gear. I will keep at it on Sunday if weather permits  happy88   tuono; exc1

I've been tidying up the Puzey trail bike and had stuck a new indicator relay on it. It worked very well even though it was for LED indicators and they haven't come through the post yet.
So I go for a ride to see if the new brake pads have made any difference to the front, and whether the new mirrors vibrate or not. All works well until I'm 2 miles away from home at some roadworks, lights on red, with the indicators going.
And the main fuse blows. It's a long push back for a man of my age in a big jacket I can tell you.

Hadn't ridden the Beemer since the end of September (been out on the Bonnie a few times) so went over to the Steel Horse this afternoon. Wasn't too bad in Bristol, but over the bridge it was proper dreich - foggy as hell in places, cold, grey, and the roads covered in grease and all sorts of shit. Couple of dryish sections where I gave it a big handful - made it all worthwhile. The freebie mince pie in the cafe served by the young girlie with a nice smile helped too  big grin1

I went out for a ride on the Husaberg. I needed to check it's roadworthiness, tickover, etc as I'm meant to be out on a ride on Wednesday and so far I've only been round the block.
This part of Lancashire is a bit underwater today and the rivers have topped out, all the fields have flooded onto the roads, my garage is under 4" of water, etc.
Got togged up and pottered off. Boots soon got full from spray off the front wheel when going through floods, so I started lifting my feet up near the bars. Had my visor up & some twat coming the other way filled me in with his bow wave!  smiley-laughing002.gif

Was doing alright, got turned round by the plod a couple of times, near Eccleston and near Croston (twice), so I was headed towards a place called Ulnes Walton and this tributary of the Yarrow was up over the road and a lot of cars both sides were turning away, but I waited and watched a 4X4 pickup come through and thought I'd have a go. Perhaps I was going a bit too fast, sat down with my feet in the air, water coming over my head, couldn't see a thing at all. Then the engine cut out  and I had to jump off & push out, 'course all the car drivers watching.

I had to persuade this woman not to go through in her little hatchback  stop1, she says "I came this way in the morning" aye, when it was half as deep.

So I take my helmet off, empty my boots ( water was just above the knee ) gloves & Jacket off. Kicked it, nothing doing. Left it 5 mins and it tried, then started. Put my gear back on, but I'd left my glasses in my helmet and as I swung it on I've broken the spec's frame on the top of my head. Muppet.

Anyways, it rode OK all the way home, but disappointed with the bike as I was hoping  it would take a dousing in It's stride, certainly wouldn't be up to one of Olaf Tuono's river crossings. Battery is right down low near the back brake lever/ front sprocket area, though perhaps I drowned the plug's HT lead, dunno?

Tried me new heated vest out today. All I can say men, is buy one  yes sir

Only went local for a couple of hours. It was a bit ropey in places tbh, and not really worth the effort of washing the bike after. It was caked in shite. It was good to get a bit of wind in me mush though.

I see where you are there Steve. Yep, everything has got washed onto the roads hasn't it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Douglas_(Lancashire) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Douglas_(Lancashire)) The picture I posted yesterday is of the River Douglas in Tarleton, It's source is up on Winter Hill which is sort of what you are pointing your camera at there, then it goes through Wigan to Tarleton and into the Ribble Estuary.

It looks like it's been pretty bad up there. All the shite on the hills has washed onto the roads, and I don't mean just mud, bleedin rocks and trees everywhere. On the way out of Rivi to Horwich it looks like the roads have been properly flooded, up to the houses on the left past the school and all the way to the main road.
Did see a lad on a Ktm come down from the pigeon house, not a speck of crap on him. Either a total professional or he bottled it.

Had a ride over to Hawes.. had to take loads of de-tours due to closed roads etc and saw lots of places i didnt know existed - lost count of how many floods / fords i had to negotiate.

Went up to Semer Water where we went on the Mudfest and the road to the hump back bridge must have been under at least 3ft of water so decided against that one. Walked down Busk lane... thats well washed out now... be allright going down it but doubt id get up it (i know - i didnt last time  big grin1). Couldnt get anywhere near the river tho due to floods.

Once it got dark it got bloody cold, still nice to get out tho

well whit a last 24 hours that has been weather wise roond aboot here.  Ricolands turn tae tak the wrath o the weather gods. Must o stood on a whole family o spiders or sumfin.

It wiz so wild yesterday ah let awe the lads and lassies leave well early tae beat the usual escape time traffic tailbacks cos it wiz lashing doon in biblical stylee an the roads were slowly floodin up all around.
An hour later ah start gettin calls tae see if the office wiz still open and a pile o them awe trooped back in havin abandon thir cars having made less than 50 yards progress, nae even oot the industrial estate cos o grid locked streets. The whole region ground tae a halt wi folk trapped and and abondoning motors awe over the place compoundin the situation. So we sat on for a few hours till the worst o the traffic cleared about 8pm.  Took some 3-4 hours tae do whats normally a 30min journey..mad.

Ah had been in on the bike as it wisnae so bad in the mornin but man it was epic the ride hame wi,  and ah shit ye not,  long stretches o flooded road, often well up ower pegs level. Ma feet wir soakin n freezin by the time ah got in.

Then the last 5 miles hame the rain turned tae white out snow which wiz really weird...up tae yer oxters in water but wi snaw dingin doon!

And as it wiz rough ah needed tae leave the car for Wee Mo this morn cos she had a skinny latte meeting or something wi pal so ah had tae tak the bike in again this mornin.

It wiz pretty hairy at times but ah actually quite enjoy the physical challenge o it all. happy88

6am this morning as ah opened the gates

For fuck's sake! Bike wouldn't start when I got there and couldn't be brought to life. WD40, repeated bumps, local witchdoctor.
So the Marshall came to see me and they gave me a credit note for another day.
I'd left it overnight on the trailer due to an early start, and it rained in Biblical fashion.
Long story short, after trying everything we could I came home and drained the carb and it started.
I suspect that water had run down the top frame tube under the tank & got into the carb from the air filter sponge under the seat. I wrung some water out of it.
Lesson 1. I'm not leaving it overnight on trailer again.
2. Check it starts in morning before setting off.
3. Field test tools: Standard spark plug spanner won't fit through narrow gap on cam cover even after taking tank off.

Anyway my mate had a good time till he fell off & hurt his knee. Told me he went down like a sack of shit and wasn't wearing Aldo's knee protectors that I'd lent him. Sore in the morning!

The place would suit FTM as it was extremely Norwegian up there today. After kicking the bike for 10 mins on arrival, and getting myself a bit warm, 2 of my fingers were still numb with cold. Site is good though and there's plenty to go at & everybody was helpful etc.

Went out on the Husaberg for the 1st time off road. Met up at Hellifield and zig-zagged up to Hawes & back, 100 miles. Bike actually ran fine  hi25
I was surprised to find myself going down a trail that Olaf Tuono took us up on the Mudfest. It was the one that Vinny came to grief on and injured his shoulder, then just after there is a ford quickly followed by a ride up a river, then a difficult climb up a rocky & rutted track. Well this time we came in the opposite direction, wouldn't like to go up that track now it's got even worse, don't know how I got up it last time.
Rivers were a bit higher & the bike all but died on me 1/2 way through, then revived & I made it with only 1 wet foot. They've sorted that bit out where Vinny fell off, they've filled in front of the hidden concrete step up.
Anyway, It was too far in 1 day for me. I'm aching all over today and will probably have another early night. Some trails were quite easy, but what happened was they speeded up, so that made it just as hard!
Also there was a police 4x4 pick-up on the tops near Hawes that clocked us, then stopped us 1/2 hour later on the road and gave us a pep talk & a bit of a vehicle inspection. Nothing wrong, told us to keep our number plates clean and keep our lights on. Said we were OK but must always consider the walkers etc cos many riders don't. Weii, that's what the walkers say. I just thought it was a waste of police time & money chasing bikers round the hills on a foggy Sunday in January when there's nobody about at all (walkers or bikers).

8 of us one year in France all on Gen 1 Tuono's, fully loaded with touring gear on our way back to the ferry. The motorway was clear and the speeds just kept creeping up from the regulation 110, to 120, 130 then suddenly everyone is going for it, slowest Vmax was 153, fastest 158, someone with a sat-nav had 157 on the speedo and a true 155 on the sat-nav. So I'd say all Tuono's will do 155 and at that speed they are as stable as fuck.

I am having a good run of bad luck at the moment.

The car has a knackered rear wheel bearing that needs a huge press to change it.

I tried the dominator, but it looks like the battery is knackered, won't hold it's charge and won't start.

So was using the DRZ to get to work and got a puncture on the way home tonight.

Went out on my traillie, starting out from Slaidburn and stopping for lunch at Kirby Lonsdale (Devil's bridge), 100 miles altogether.
Swapped bikes for a bit with a guy who used to have a similar Husaberg, I rode his 300cc Sherco. Made riding fast really easy on that thing, floated over everything.
Aches & pains today, but only fell off once, crossed up in the ruts.
Plenty of folk out in the sunshine at Devil's Bridge.

They were going to hold my 4th quarter bonus as well as the yearly (2015) because I wouldnt be on the payroll when paid out. Then the HR cunt says, you won't be paid for the holiday (good friday) because your not working the day after. Besides the fact we don't run on the weekends and Sunday is Easter.   Sent my employment offer that stated to the contrary to her and her boss at corporate.  He calls me and asked why did I recieve this letter? I explained the situation, he simply could not believe it.  Said, After 10 years of service?  Needless to say,shit was straightened right out.  I am so glad to leave.  Has to be better for my health to boot.

 

That really is burning your bridges WC.

Not sure what your human rights in  the States are but they wouldn't get away with pulling a stunt like that over here. 
Long gone are the days when a good slanging match followed by a punch in the face and the sense of self satisfaction as you walkout the door eased the pain. Modern tactics are 3 Months paid absence from work claiming anxiety, depression and stress followed by a wrongful dismisal claim for bullying/harassment or whatever.  Average claims paid ouit start at about 12K  Even builders get offended showing their sensitive effeminate side.

The road from Barnard Castle to Stanhope was pure white. It looked like it was frosty or maybe a light lair of snow. Bloody slippy too ! 
Kirkstone pass is maybe even higher up and still has patches of snow on the hill tops....

Been out on those electric motocrossers up my way today with my niece and her fella. Got a bit carried away on one of the KTM Freerides and highsided it. Landed hard on my hip so bloody sore now. Picked bike up and carried on, it actually slowed me down for almost half a lap and then normal service was resumed. Thought it was handling a bit weird only to be informed by the workshop guy that I'd bent the forks when I got back in.

Had a bit of a breather then took another one out while they fixed the first one. Good day out. big grin1

Price has gone up though. Cost £45 for the KTM for two sessions.

Rode over to Scarborough to watch some racing at Oliver's mount. It's about 135 miles each way, though we went on a longer 'scenic' route.
Got Man Flu at the moment and it was a bloody 7am start on a freezing Sunday morning with the sun coming up into your eyes. I'd rather have had the lie-in to be honest.
The ride got more pleasant after the breakfast stop at Maccy's, which took ages because the others I was with decided to have a 2nd sitting.
Never been to Oliver's Mount before, it is quaint. Track looks scary, hairpins, narrow, no run off just trees & fences. It's like racing on your local park paths.
Races kept getting red flagged for crashes and in the end the meeting was abandoned after a bad one which had the course Doctor having to go with the ambulance to keep the guy breathing. Don't know much about it as the commentary was a bit vague.
Then the long ride home, long because we were with a new rider so keeping 4 riders together a bit difficult when 1 not used to overtaking etc. But anyroad he did really well & it will do his confidence good for the future. Got home at 9pm.

Sad to hear.
So many comments could be said about the whole situation, very similar to the IoM.
Olivers Mount is a very narrow winding track with bales of straw propped against trees only feet from the racing line.

If it was car racing, horse racing, boxing etc, it would have been stopped years ago.
Perhaps that's the attraction which makes people do it and others pay to watch.

I think Nob's on a diet. Normally 1st stop on a ride with him is for a full monty. Today all he had was an orange juice, keeping me company whilst I had this pork & mustard sandwich in some sort of designer bread that was the consistency of a bagel but triangular in shape. Nice though. Went to look at some mopeds and put a £50 deposit down (not on anything specific really) for my lad in recognition of him studying hard for his GCSE's.
Some of these Chinese scooters aren't too bad the 1 I liked was an AJS (yes, shame I know) retro:

Up and out at 8am, grim but dryish. The drizzle started and persisted all the way to Prees. I was freezing, starving and bursting for a piss. Before I got off me bike two coach loads of coffin dodgers wobbled in the cafe and were queuing out the fucking door. Went inside, it were rammed so I turned round, walked past the gay band setting up and came ome. Quiet a pleasant ride despite the conditions.

Went out on the Sprint yesterday, Alston, Kielder, Carter Bar loop, mainly to text planning routes on the sat nav.  Had every sort of weather possible.

Was out on the Dominatrix today, TRF help day, marshalling for a tractor rally, 230 old tractors on a tour of North Yorkshire.

It was OK if you like old tractors, lucky I do.

Gen 2 T is 820 mm  SDR is 835

Seat on the T is a fair bit wider - especially yours F

The narrower seat makes up for the extra 15 mm so for me the two feel exactly the same height.

Maybe I am heavier than you so I weight it down a bit more  laugh13

Seat shape  does make a difference, GT & SDR both have 835mm seats, GT must be wider as me toes actually touch the floor on the SDR. That said, neither suspension moves when I sit on em...

Maybe the answer is to eat more pies...n plenty of em !

Had a good wee run today.

It started by meeting up with a couple of friends that are now on their way around the world by motorbike in an attempt at breaking the current worlds record.

They have to visit at least 100 countries and physically cross the equator twice on their bikes.

You can follow their progress and read their blog, bike build etc here at:http://www.inwhichweride.com/

For the next two years they will be circumnavigating the globe on motorbikes.

Went for a blast today (told the missus I was out looking for a job  big grin1). You know what, I doubt I'll ever sell the Tuono, it's just so much fun on the twisty stuff and pottering about it's so comfortable. Even spotted a Factory go blasting past Loomies while I was sat having a cuppa.  happy88

The highlight for me was steak & onion pie, chips & gravy for lunch, sitting in the shade at Bala cenotaph  eat26. I'd had no breakfast.
I was too hot all day even with my jacket open. 1) that's the last time I wear a fleecy jumper this summer 2) I'm buying a new "cool" balaclava to replace this itchy one 3) I need to find something to wear under these reinforced jeans, 4) I actually spent money on some summer gloves at J&S on the way home, and it was money well spent  5) I'm getting one of those visor cleaning kits, I could see fuck all on the way back, even with my good eye 6) May consider earplugs next time I'm out all day.

On a day like today, Wales can hold its head up as one of the loveliest places on the planet.
You can stick the A49 and the M56 and the M6 on the way back though! Mind you it was 6.00 on a Friday.

Went past your old place Mick, looked a bit miserable. The roads around Cerigrudion? are magnificent, every time I go theres a new one. You could be in that Germany, Spain, anywhere when the sun is shining like it was yesterday. Everywhere smelled of pine. Shit meself when them jets flew low over us, sounded just like someone skidding.
Even got a bimble on Evils R, what a lovely bike. I've always thought it and I don't think me opinion will ever change, the original Tuono is the best. Really reminded me of my first one when I rode it back from Abberistwith? And why we fall in love with them. I'm getting another as soon as I've got the spare dough.

The only pic we got. Classy innit.

661 miles... that's a good effort A !

Worked with a guy with a blade a few years back & he couldnt get the suspension right, so he took it to reactive suspension in York & they set up the sag / preload / rebound etc for him. Reckoned it was the best £25 he had spent on it.

Might be worth looking for someone local to you ?

Aldo as Nob say,s the manual is good, but it also gives you the settings under your seat, i think it's something like normal, soft, and sport, i set mine to sport front and back. feck me it nearly through me off the thing giving it the beens, so i backed the rear off one click all round, and the front is about one click harder than the soft setting, i still need too fine tune it but it's not bad for a base setting, what i have found is when you are pushing hard you do need to lean forward to get some weight over the front.

Checking out theoptions, I could have been tempted if I'd received some customer service instead on wandering around like a prune for 1/2 an hour, Everybody too usy looking at computer screens. I had a test ride booked on s Speed Tripple that was postponed because of tghe delicate matter regarding the points situation on my License, needed to get permission from the underwriters first which never happened. So wastewd another hour or more in Bevans.

On the plus side Aprilia have responded to my email asking for chassis number + dealer details in order to "escalate a claim" possibly getting parts for free as it is yet another one of the "known faults" on the early V4's, but won't hold my breath.

If you look at the numbers of failures of one "known issue" or another, and put it against the number of bikes sold the percentage of
failures must be really high, still as you say S1im, it keeps AP in work and that's a good thing.

To give you a flavour of just how much I detest them...

Pisser about your bill Riz  frown1


Its not that they "can" have issues, more that they never seem to do anything about it. (ie: fried stator's on Gen 2's & fried stator's on V4's... Known gear box faults / Ethanol effect / cloudy clocks / no recalls / crap customer service.....etc etc ).

All other manufacturers seem to deal with this much better. Most common brand to breakdown (according to chap that recovered mine) is BMW. Yeah, they probably do more miles (generally) & there are more of them, but they also understand the concept of customer service.

Agree with Tifa though.... tiz the best / most fun bike i have ever owned too and, knowing what i know now, i would still have bought it..

Two observations Mick...

1 You need to get the speedo out of camera shot. If when you get stopped by plod for speeding, they are likely to confiscate camera/SD card for evidence. You are handing it them on a plate mate.
2 Your screen obsures 40% of available camera view. Either remount the camera, or change to a clear screen.

I have been trying to make the voice commands from my sat nav so I can hear them when riding.
It's a Garmin. Montana, it has a 3.5mm audio socket built in.

I have tried an external speaker (currys do a small water proof version)
It's quite load when standing still, but anything more than 50mph, the wind noise it too much.

Some have tried a headphone amp, about 20 quid, I might try that.
Other options are, small speakers that velco to the inside of the lid, poor reviews.

Alternatively, some have used small "in ear" headphones.
Problem with both the above are trailing cables.

Has anyone had any success with hearing any sort of sat nav, radio, I-tunes etc on a bike ?

No volume issues but had to position the helmet speakers carefully.

With Garmin units you have to increase the volume will a traffic command is being spoken otherwise the volume does not change.

The mobile phone has to be paired through the Garmin

I bought some Bluetooth earphones the other day and they connected to the iPhone and the tomtom. I was pretty chuffed until it kept saying "call ended" after every instruction. Started doing my head in, especially if you had 2-3 quick turns. I've sent them back and have some more on the way that apparently don't do it.
I don't know wtf I'm doing with it tbh, I've never used the tomtom headset and it don't seem to work anyway. I asked on the tomtom forum what I could use and they were a bit cagey only really saying I could use their own stuff.
If it's 4.1 BT it seems to work with more or less everything though.


Title: Re: Anyone get out today ?
Post by: Tifa on June 15, 2016, 10:32:50 am
I have some autocom, wired into a BT receiver/transponder thingy.
It's fucken crap. Besides, when your hearing is half fucked (check) and you're wearing earplugs (check) with poor attention so missing prompts (check) they are worse than useless.
Add to the above a bit of wind noise in the helmet and it all becomes a bit pointless.

Remember the old fashion way of doing it?
We used to use these paper things called maps.
Worked too.
All you satnavers need to remember is that a satnav without sound, is a bit like a map.
But more expensive...and more likley to go wrong.

Gotta say the google map thing on me phone is ace at getting you straight there. Clear accurate instructions on either fastest or avoid motorways. I use it a lot if I go to speedway on me bike. You just stick it in your jacket pocket and shove the ear phones in, works a treat.
I love the windy roads on me tomtom though. Every time it manages to take me somewhere new and interesting.

I got some cheap "in ear" head phones today to try, I don't think they will be any good.
Too bulky with plastic bits that hurt my lugs.

Looks like the only remaining option is to try the flat velco speakers that stick to the inside the helmet.
Other than that, it's a case of keeping a close eye on the on screen instructions.

Anyone out there use Garmin basecamp for route planning on the PC ?
I am getting plenty of practice at creating a route on my PC and down loading it to the sat nav.

You have to be careful on the road though, if any pre planned waypoints are missed, it will always try and take you back to it.
You have to access the skipped waypoint and delete it from the ride.


Title: Re: Anyone get out today ?
Post by: Vinny on June 16, 2016, 09:07:06 pm
I use Tyre travel and Google Earth works well with Garmin or Tomtom

Open Google earth open Tyre.  Place pin on the road you want on Google Earth right clip copy. Point is copied to Tyre automatically.

Your dead right about way points miss one and it takes you back to it real pain but if you plan the route right there's no reason to miss a way point out

that the classic motorcycle route ain't for me, forgot the camera and the phone battery was flat.
A mate had his two stroke 6 day trialler on the two stroke club stand, nice and sunny.

Not been out for a rip on the T for the best part of 18 months due to all our time being spent looking after poorly parents but got out this afternoon for a little blast round North Wales. Sunny weather, quiet roads and a Tuono, what a fucking blast! I've missed that buzz from ragging the arse off the bike,  a few improptu wheelies and even had a bit of a race with an RSV4. The pussy backed off at 140 though. Back tyre's looking a bit worse for wear now but I think I've got one stashed in the garage with about a thousand miles left on it.

As it was such a nice night, we had a ride to Hartside, doing the Stanhope roads there and Hexham roads back.

We came upon a recent bike accident, looked like there was a car with a puncture being repaired around a blind corner.

I think the bike must have come round the corner at some speed, saw the car at the last moment and ricochet of the back corner of the car.

The wrecked fire blade was on its stand near the car, sand all over the road to soak up the petrol, but no sign of the rider.

The police were still at the scene giving us disapproving looks as we rode past, certainly spoilt some peoples evening.

Other major problem with evening rides in the sticks is crazy pheasants.  They were all over the roads, dashing one way then the other.

I once rode over a mad chicken with my DRZ (by accident, I did my best to avoid it) and that was like riding over a brick, so hitting a pheasant at speed would not be good.


Title: Re: Anyone get out today ?
Post by: Aldo on August 16, 2016, 06:34:39 am
Aye OT, those pheasants are a suicidal bunch all right.

Three bird strikes in one year, first pheasant wanders across the road, gets to the other side then decides to turn round and launch itself at me.

It hit me on my arm then wiped out a mirror, second one was on the Haul Road above Faslane, it decided to head butt the tank,,,,,fukker left a dent in it.

Third strike was a Mistle Thrush, it came in low, hit my leg then mangled the lecy connectors to the fuel pump.   sad33

Hope the Blade rider is ok.

This time of the year they are still young and have just started exploring beyond the confines of the rearing pens. They litter the roads by Welshpool at this time of the year by the big commercial shoots. Not the most intelligent of birds but make a tidy casserole.

One reason I've kept the cat on my bike (just an Akra end can)- IL4s sound obnoxious with loud systems anyway and just piss people off.

If / when I get another V twin however it WILL get loud cans. Running whisper quiet Standard exhausts on a V2 should be against the law.

North Wales, Horseshoe pass, baffles removed. Asing for problems??? !!!


North Wales Police say seven motorcyclists have been handed TORs (Traffic Offence Reports) on the Horseshoe Pass, Llangollen after several complaints about noisy bikes.
We get complaints from residents across north Wales every weekend regarding noisy exhausts on motorbikes.

Only recently I attended a meeting in Llangollen where noisy exhausts from motorcycles was the main complaint I received.We find that motorcyclists are deliberately removing the ‘baffles’ from exhausts which then makes them extremely loud.

We are simply asking bikers to have respect for local residents and to ensure their bikes are fully legal.

what's the penalty for no DB killer, you bell end's. not fecking speeding.

In North Wales it's likely that you will be issued with a Section 59.
This is issued against you and/or the bike.
A Section 59 is usually issued for antisocial behaviour...so stuff like noisy exhausts, inconsiderate riding and even illegal number plates (which is a load of bollocks...how can a numberplate be anti social offs!)
Anyway...you're likely to get a minor fine/no points.
BUT the biggie is that the S.59 lasts for 12 months.
Commit the same, similar, or another antisocial act within that period in the same vehicle, and said vehicle can be confiscated and crushed. Best outcome is vehicle is held to ransom, and you have to sell a kidney to get it back.
If you get issued with a S.59, best course of action is to stay off the roads until it's expired.

Around here you would get a fine for noisy exhausts and small plates. I think it was £30 for each offence.
Cops would also give you a rectification notice. You would have to take the bike to an MOT station to check its legality.
I have been warned a few times but escaped being fined. Just lucky, I guess.

Will be putting old hornet on fleabay later in the week.
But
Did about 190 miles on the new hornet after finally setting it up.
Maxton rear in (took it out of the old hornet, and had it serviced by maxton) jacked back up by about 12mm.. Renthals in...etc..
Took centre stand off, and dumped a shit load of unnecessary weight.
Handles as sweet as ...nice and neutral.
Called in at the Pondo for a cuppa...weather was foggy as fuck up there.. drizzle too....rest of the ride was fantabidosey.
Almost collected a pair of sheep on the way down  smiley-laughing002.gif bit close for comfort...will be taking some mint sauce with me next time.. smiley-laughing002.gif
Ruthin, Denbigh, Abergele, Llanrywst, Betwys, Beddgellert, Porthmadog,Trawsfynedd, Bala, Penybont, LLanrhaedr, home.

Two of his pals came in riding newish Kawasaki GTR's that were marked up.
Went the long way back and stopped at Wellesbourne for a brew and then up the Fosse Way

Had the day off work, made a change being nice weather.

Headed south to  Thirsk on the Sprint, then onto Helmsley for a mid morning ice cream at the place on the entrance road to the castle, it's almost as good as Brymors and the portion sizes are bigger, plus the traffic wardens dont bother you.

Had a bimble around the area, then as it was so hot, decided to get the real thing and headed for Leyburn for a spot of lunch and propper Brymors ice cream.

As it was so nice, Hawes next, it was heaving, so I turned round, and went back to Manors cafe for a brew, a well known bikers meet, but it was closed for the afternoon  jaw drop1z

So I went home and had a brew. Never checked the mileage, but a tank full of juice, so approx 170 miles.  happy88

Joseph Holt is the beer all other beer is judged by, and none compare. It's always a good pint at the Black Dog but it's usually really cold, hence cloudiness.

me an Wee Mo were oot awe day on the Katoom and stopped by a tractor pulling event.

Never mind Chinese coal fired power stations, this stuff has got tae be the maist eco UN friendly thing ever.  The diesel reek comin oot frae the massive engines while runnin at full chat was like straight soot an carbon dioxide in powder form!  These machines are single handling doublin the carbon foot print o the whole o the UK!!

There was on lad runnin 6 x Rover V8 petrol engines lashed thigither intae an auld MAssey Ferguson  and a couple o machines wi V12 10 litre diesels wi a 3 foot straight pipe!  Whit a noise..... exc1

I remember hooning down to Aberystwyth during the early morning witching hours one night on my cbr6 many moons ago.....things were going splendidly, no traffic.
Full width of the road into bends (no oncoming headlights...assume all of the road is yours lol)
Anyway, carrying monster speed, I hit two rabbits.
To this day, I still don't know how I managed not to bin it.

Well spotted Olaf, but no:The pit head frame was designed by an engineer, it's the handrail & balustrade manufacturer that knocks out those bike frames from gas piping in his lunch hour.
Nob had a really big exhaust fitted with a slotted end, had to change it because he was always getting envelopes pushed into it.

That,s exact same as the one in Bersham, if you stand with your back to the railings you would be looking at the old pit/slag heap, there's a Evans hallshaw ford garage round the corner, but it,s about 45 min's or more from prees

Been out twice this weekend.  Told my boss I was not working and needed a mental health day. (So I took 2 off  happy88)

 Took Miss Ono out wayy past bedtime. I had installed some LED headlights and boy do they work nice. Got in 375 miles. Not bad at all. 75 (24c) degrees out and sunny. After sun went down it went to 68 (20c) and lovely. Hard to believe its the end of October.  I really needed the run. Feel great and the bike did well.

  Francesca is in garage awaiting me to finish a brake upgrade.  Aldo has pics to post for me. Thanks Ali.

Beautiful morning down here so went for a blast over the bridge with Liam. Stacks of bikes at the Steel Horse so looks like everyone was out making the most of the weather.  Bloody nippy though, had the heated grips on full all the way round.

Great day out but the LH radiator got damaged and was pouring out, so had to call it a day by 3pm.
Fortunately I've got a spare one with that donor bike I bought a few weeks back.

 wtf1. Is that aboot?

   Still in mid 80's over here.  Cool overnight but stunning during the day.

 I rode Francesca to work today. She had all the rednecks at work wanting a ride.  It was good to get out early and take the long way home. Need to check TPS and what the fueling is doing. After installing the Arrows I have noticed a bit of flat in the midrange. Its not bad just different since the single pipe made such good power all the way through. She is no slouch up top, I imagine I've shifted the powerband up the rev range. Might have to go back to the single pipe exhaust if I cant straighten this out. I prefer the monster mid range to dart from corner to corner, rather than carry high rpm's throughout.

About 8 of us. Parked up the vans outside the front of Glyn Ceriog Hotel near the public bogs. Set off at 9, got back at 4. Had lunch in the pub.

It's a great part of the world. Every time I go the trails are different to ride, and you don't hardly see any walkers about. It must be great for you living so close, mind you it's only 75 miles away from me.

Me and 'er indoors went out for a meet up at Hoar Park, there were 26 Brit iron bikes, 3 Jap bikes of which two were ours
1 BMW that belongs to my mate Stu and has been everywhere including Iceland.
Thank f**k for heated gloves and thermal undies, we went for a run round Warwickshire Staffordshire borders, about 70 miles all in.
Unfortunately some of the horse set got up earlier than we did so there was plenty of "muck" on some of the roads.

   I did fire up Ms. Ono and the new FZ to be named later.

 New batteries in all machines. I got a good deal on EarthX lightweight jobs so, they all got them. Cannot wait until better weather and no road de icers lurking in corners.

i have been riding my scooter every day for the last month rain or shine but I'm desperate to get out on the BMW
,maybe towards the end of the week if I'm lucky and my son or daughter take over my duties for the day
 my mothers been taken from the Queen Elizabeth hospital into a hospice as my father can't cope with the amount of care she now needs so i visit her every day. i am also my father in laws career and have to go to his house in the morning and get him dressed
then again in the evening to get him ready for bed ,and to be honest its getting me down. i need a blast out on the bike to clear my brain.

You can get help with the morning /evening routine and maybe more .  Have a word with social services .

thanks lads, yes we could get extra help for the old chap but he likes routine and won't have any one else come in his house, even other family members, there will come a time when we won't be able to cope with his care when his condition
(parkinson disease ) gets worse, but a the mo we will soldier on.
i have had a couple of days break from visiting mom at the hospice as they have had a bug going round in there and have stoped visits till the clear the problem 
to be honest just taking about it has made me feel better . head wobble over, time to man up and get on with it

Broken a few other bits & bobs, got flats on the bar end weight, brake levers & footrests & cracked a panel. Also ripped jeans & jacket & scuffed his visor.
Not worth claiming for and he'll mend.
Annoying thing is that nobody stopped even though 1 car had to swerve to avoid him. All rushing to get to work at 8.30 I suppose.

The roads round here are superb, really twisty with hardly anything ever on them. But, you've really got to have your wits about you. Its pure farming country and literally anything can come out of a field or a bog road. Tractors, sheep, cows, deer. You just have to chill and enjoy the ride, you can't tear arse or you'll come a cropper. A 450/600 traily/supermoto would be ideal.

The roads were generally fine but up ower the higher ground there wiz nae mair than a foot wide bit o black. Teaches ye focus and concentration that does!  It wiz fine tae be oot and aboot though and while a bit nippy once the sun dipped later on was a most enjoyable wee rasp.

just got home now, been on the freeride again but shit everywhere it was really wet, tried the H20 track in selattyn out, passed it a few times when we've been on the lanes, it's a motocross practice track that used to be run by fast Eddy, but he had a fall out with the farmer so he doesn't run it anymore, so the farmer does a pay and play, turn up pay £25 then that's it for the day just do what you want you've got the track plus you can do a few trails and go through the woods, but it's no good for days like today it's too wet, ill try it out again when everywhere dry's up.

Had to get up early(ish - for a Winter weekend) today to drop my eldest into work, and the missus went into work too, so hopped on the Beemer and went for a solo blast round the Brecons. Colder than I expected, had the heated grips on full most of the time, and the cup of tea and piece of cappacino cake at the Steel Horse had never tasted better. Bike looked like if had been hauled out of a swamp when I got home so had to wash it before dark as probably salt amongst the grime. Great to get out though   big grin1

Today I took the Tuoldo out for the first time since doing the suspension and brakes, didn't venture far incase anything was needing sorted. Bike went well but will need setting up better, brakes are back to one finger instead of using 4 and praying it stops. The wheel stayed on when it landed after too much throttle which is a relief. The roads were really slippy so didn't go mad.

I got out for a 65 mile trundle round riding shotgun to the wife on her new bike (Suzuki) as said before, a lot of crap on the roads
I have stone chips on the bike and on the new visor, the wife has got five stone chips on the new bike, oh well, still nice to get out
and 4k rev limit seems reasonable for the state of the roads today. Back out there tomorrow all being well, may have a look see round Lincolnshire.

A balmy 11degC here today so took the Beemer out for a blast on some of South Wales' finest Tarmac. Stopped for tea and cake at The Steel Horse and got chatting to a guy who's a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Bristol Uni. Chewed the fat for half an hour about bikes we've owned and roads we've ridden, then went our separate ways.  Yet another example of why bikes are fucking ace 👍

Motorbikes stayed in the garage this weekend. Spent it at Afan Argoed in South Wales mountain biking with the club I ride with. We were out for 7 hours yesterday hammering through endless mud and puddles, and after the lunch stop at Glyncorrwg I had a serious sense of humour failure as I couldn't feel my feet and the wind was blowing right through me. The next 20 minute fire road climb soon warmed me up, and overall bloody brilliant trails and great company. I'd like to say we partied hard too, but on Saturday night after fish and chips and a few tinnies we were all spark out by 10.30pm  lookup1

I appear to be chewing on a lemon here:

About 140 solo miles around N wales today, on the Honda.
Rained like an absolute bastard up on the Denbigh moors...fucking soaked.
Temps really low. Had a fantastic time, the Honda is so much easier to ride in the wet, the Tuono is much firmer, and tends to be twitchy.
The Hornet is easy by comparison, as you can actually feel the grip (or not  smiley-laughing002.gif), which tends to give a wee bit more confidence.
Had a great day dicking around.
All HAIL heated vests and grips.

The place we live is actually called Bunavan, pronounced Banavan. If you say Bunavan they look at you like a dick, which happens to me a lot actually.
Nearest village is Ahascragh where everyone just calls it Ahas. Nearest town is Ballinasloe where everyone just calls it B'sloe. Simples.

Next but two villages is Mount Bellew, I'd say it was Bell-you. Nope, its Mount Bellyer

Decided late Sat night tae take a gander at the now imfamously crap MCN Scottish Mortorcylce Show in Edinboro Toon.  

Just the usual same old same old , wi next to nothing new and exciting tae see ( apart from Big John 180 daein his best tae flog some dodgy merchandise tae unassuming punters  winking1).  Did pick up a Scotoiler system for the KTM and got a T shirt and a pile o extra bits and extra oil thrown in so cannae complain.

The ride doon was through horrendously bad thick fog, a scary thing on yer own at 6.30am on a dark morning wi nae another thing on the road for miles.  Brightened up tho

..on the way hame took all the roads that avoided motorways etc, mainly thru bits o Fife ah had never been then up ower the Cairn O Mount road as nae been in years.   2 1/2 hours down but 4 1/2 hours back hame...splendid! happy88


Stopped in by tae see if the Proclamers wir hame and in for a cup o tea.........."Auchtermuchty"....how Scottish soundin is that!

Love it mate  big grin1 what hugger you got fitted to yours mate? lookup1

It's a Powerbronze hugger mate. Cheapest out there and I really like the look of it. I'd rather not have a hugger tbh as it looks better without, but the shock was getting covered in so much shite I had to go for one.

Post by: Tifa on March 13, 2017, 11:15:45 pm
Don't get a shock sock mate.
The dampening action of a shock works by converting linear motion into heat, and then dissipating it.
Simple as.
If you cover the shock with anything, especially a cover, the heat will have difficulty in dissipating.
The shock will then fade quicker, and you'll start to loose dampening way before normal.
That's why shocks get warm/hot when they do their work.

Went round the block today after fitting a couple of new indicators. They were genuine Aprilia ones, but the connectors were smaller than those on my bike, so it was easier to leave the original wires on and swap the units over.
Bike fired up 1st press of the button!! It's amazing getting on the big bike and opening the taps after pottering around on the Puzey 300cc thingy and driving the car.
Lovely afternoon round here today, but the sun's still a bit low isn't it. Clocks change in a couple of weeks.

The big BM was piloted by a wench who could really ride. She took the lead and set a cracking pace. A good bunch, really enjoyed meself.

yea i do remember you posting about this mike, but at the time i didn't know what i would be up too, as far as it being to easy, i don't think so anything on two wheels is a good day out.

Mega cheesed off

Off road place literally 10 minutes before I left home this morning

The bloke running it has a couple of bikes that have broken down - one suspension one engine rebuild - got to be completed for Sunday / Monday group rides

So my one to one session has been cancelled - very sorry and all that says he - what a crap way to treat customers  I say

I took the bike over to wheelhouse tyres first thing today for a new pair of tyres on the Kwak.
I did 60 miles on the new rubber and was about frozen to death when I got back home.
It's nice and sunny now although it's very cold.
Maybe I can get out for breakfast to Wellesbourne airfield.

Got a call off me new chum Ade yesterday asking are we chancing it Sunday. Eye, go on I said. We met at the usual place and it was raining. We decided we were hard bastards and to go for it as it looked ok up Connemara way. It eased off and five miles out of Ballinasloe it stopped and the sun shone all day. Fookin freezing at times but well worth it. We went on some of the finest roads I've ever been on. I've had 4 proper days on the bike now and every one has been magnificent. Today was probably the best. It was like being up in the highlands on a fudfest. Deserted roads, proper twisty and good stretches with the sea everywhere you looked. It was a part of the Wild Atlantic Way. Its like living in Mancunia and Ullerpool is 40 miles away. I was a bit apprehensive about the roads over here, but its frigging heaven  smile2
The jist of the route was.
Ahascragh, Loughrea, Galway, Salthill, Spiddal, Costello, Maam Cross, Clifden, Moyard, Kylemore Abbey, Cong (where they filumed Quiet Man) (a king of a road) Maam Cross, Galway, Croughwell, Ahascragh.

Some pics.

thats the fat KTM dropped off at the Rev I M Jollys doon in Perth for its big service. Gave me a Z1000 for the run back up the road hame.

So the scenic way hame it wiz via Blairgowrie, up ower the Glenshee high road, quick left at Crathes near the Queens wee holiday cottage at Balmoral, time tae hit some gnarly bits before Gairn Brig and then climb climb climb the Lecht road ower tae Tomintoul.  Right turn wi a fast blast tae Dufftown and ah can almost smell ma supper cooking in Ricoland.

The big Zed surprised me, while was a bit too hard feeling on the slower bumpy bits it handled really well on the fast stuff and never felt like it wiz gettin ooto order at any point. Nice change tae ride a IL4 hard and fast efter a few years absence. THe V&H pipes were pretty frooty as weel  devious1

The bike looks good from the back, but friggin awefull at the front and sides. I can't tell if is a naked or what. I couldn't wait to get off me mates zzr12, nice and smooth with plenty of power but was boring as fuck. You just don't get the same sensation to a v2.

Your probably right about the V twin thing, problem there is that you are limiting yourself with choice.
In my opinion, KTM and Ducati are both too expensive in my view and on occasion, don't live up to the hype do they
Nob and Aldo and Coleman all spring to mind with their recent experiences, I'm happy with what I have, it's an IL4
I guess that makes me boring. But it's reliable and the manufacturer did their own R&D.

For me, with a twin you feel like your involved with the bike. The last 4 cylinder I had was the V4 Tuono. Exceptional bike and a 'bit' like a twin, but for me it was just to fast, to smooth and refined, to good in a way. The Superduke GT as the same, mega, and I mean stupidly mega fast, smooth and refined. Besides the suspension scaring me it was that smooth I was always at crazy speeds without realizing it. Tbh, it fwikened me.
The Aprilia V2 were all proper bikes to me and I wish me shoulders weren't so fucked or I'd still have me Black Dream. The Smt was a proper bike, nowt flashy on it and probably the best bike I've ever owned. The Mutley is a bit flashy, but its a proper bike, you feel involved with it, the engine is a peach. I never feel involved with a 4 cylinder, or the trebles I've ridden recently tbh.
What can yer do, were all diferrent eh.

Yeah, this.  My S1000R was a stunning piece of kit, easily the best bike I've ever owned by any objective measure. The thing is, after a while I started to get what people meant by saying a bike is too good (I used to think that was bollocks, how could a bike be too good). Going mind bendingly fast was just a few mm on the throttle away, it was easy to get lazy in corners and just wind it on on the straights to keep with pretty much anything.   Also used to frustrate me that I could hardly ever use all the power, it was a case of just feathering the throttle most of the time.

With the R NineT it "only" has 100bhp, but stacks of torque.  It vibrates like crazy at tickover, and with decat headers sounds bloody lovely. I can also thrash it and use all the power it has.

On Saturday I was out on my tod in Wales when a Panigale and S1000RR came up behind me.  Pani comes past me on the back wheel on the first straight which I take as an invitation and tuck in behind. The next 40 odd miles are a bit of a blur but they were fast and I stayed glued to his rear tyre.  He pulled away on the longer straights (obviously) but I just had to brake later and get on the power sooner (easier with less of it).  Guy on S1000RR couldn't keep up and dropped way back.  Kinda proved my theory that big power is great, but you can't actually use it to your advantage on the road (unless you are stupidly good, or have a death wish).

Twins all the way, V or Boxer (parallel twins are ok, but third on the list).

Yall remember lil rog...   on his (another ) brand new RR. 
well he was following me tother day an says..    he's always panicking about how much throttle to give it leaving a corner.   Scared of the back wheel spinning up..   asks me how much I give it....       all of it was the reply.

I love me a twin or even a big single but the best fun bike I ever had was the wife's old 1986 CBR400, you had to scream up and down the gears to keep up with anything bigger on the road but fuck it was fun, it weighed nowt and would wheelie non stop when the fun began. It made me look like I could ride a bike  smile1.

Aye. New model Nolan N40 job wi the detachable chin piece. Really light but a bit plasticky but it does the job.  Bought it for me jollies to Pyrenees next month as last year ah rode the whole 3500 miles wi ma Shoei Neotec flipped up cos ma heid was bakin and thought a proper open facer would be nice and light fo rthe tourin stuff, as well as much cooler (not in the trendy sense!) to wear in the heat. 

Wi the big tall fairing an open facer really works on the KTM, can sit at 90 wi next tae nae windblast tae the coupon at all.

Went to the Goodwood breakfast club this morning. The usual hundreds of Veyrons, McClarens, Nobles, Lambo's, red cars etc all turned up. As usual the bike park was more interesting for me.
Saw my first H2.

I'm not sure who owned this McClaren but if I saw it out on the road I don't think I'd bother racing it just incase.

More or less mucker,,,,,,,,,,,it's braw if yer doin slow miles an hour but the difference between dipped and main beam is hugh.

If yer raised the dipped beam enough tae make it usable the main would light the moon.

That said the big problem fir me riding in the dark are the fookin road signs, they reflect so much light back at yer yer canae see where the fook yer goin.

Me an Wee Mo headed ower tae Oban via ower Glenshee (3rd time this week!!) , then doon tae Pitlochry, hopped across the A9, thru Aberfeldy, stopped at Kenmore for a bite n coffee then along Loch Tay on the little used South side old road, comin oot at the Falls of Dochart beside Killin.

Right turn west at Lix Toll, for a welcome P stop n ice cream at the Green Welly Tyndrum.   Nae many bikes considering it was a baking hot clear day and a total absence of plod, which was even more unusual!!.

Then a tootle along tae Oban, staying just beside the Connel Bridge for a splendid nights DB&B.  Up sharp in the morning tae head hame via Ft Bill and as many un explored we side roads as possible. 

The country was well split weather wise wi it beautiful blue skies and 20 degree hot on the West tae dull driech and drizzle on the East by the time we got hame.

All in all a grand weekend oot and aboot again. happy119

Just come yer fannies. I was on an errand (in the van  frown1) yesterday up north on a road out of Armagh and I'm telling you it was just perfect, even the ride up to Armagh was ace, a biggish road but twisty and up and down hills. Everywhere you go you just find cracking roads, you can't really hammer them like jockland, but you can get a wriggle on and have a good day out in any direction.
The only time I'm stuck is the first two weeks in September, I've a wedding to attend.

Went out on Sunday afternoon, first chance to get out for a while. I went up to Settle.
It wasn't a brilliant ride though, lots of traffic, I'll not bother with Sunday rides again.
I must be rusty because my wrists were aching when I got home and I'd only been out for about 2.5 hours.
I don't think the Tuono suits the bumpy, twisty roads you get up near the Trough so next time I go out I'll have to have a think before I set off where I'm going rather than just bimbling round the back lanes looking at the scenery.

Only ridden the Trough 3 times, but I'd say the key to enjoying it is good quality, well set up suspension. When I rode it at Easter on the way to Scotland with new, set up for my weight, Wilbers forks and shock I loved it.

Had a nice run out tonight after work 250 miles and a lot of stiff aching joints now.
At least it gave the Mrs a chance to get the holiday ironing done in peace. Although
She's moaning 'cos I've been out for four hours, nice to get out again after me jollies

100% correct mate
Diesel will maybe foul a plug, or cause it to smoke a bit as it burns the diesel, but both won't do any harm and are easily sorted.
Petrol in a diesel however....diesel is a light oil, and the FI pump needs the oil lubrication properties of the diesel to keep it nicely lubed. Introduce petrol to it, will wash out the oil, the pump will seize, if it's chain driven internally as a lot of them are, there's a pretty good chance that when the chain snaps, it'll grenade the motor.

Got the Beemer back together after a month up on the Abba stand. The wheels have been on holiday in Devon having the crappy zinc plated spokes and nipples replaced with stainless steel and the rims converted to run tubeless.

Also sorted out the non working indicator. Turns out my wiring and connections were fine, the poxy indicator itself had packed in after only 7 months.  Ripped the 2 rear ones off and replaced them with some Oxford Nanos I had kicking around the garage.   Means front and rear don't match so may replace the fronts if I can be arsed sometime.

Had new Roadsmart 2's fitted so went for a quick blast up Cheddar Gorge before tea to scrub 'em in. Great to be back on the NineT - love it  happy88

Got the Beemer back together after a month up on the Abba stand. The wheels have been on holiday in Devon having the crappy zinc plated spokes and nipples replaced with stainless steel and the rims converted to run tubeless.

Also sorted out the non working indicator. Turns out my wiring and connections were fine, the poxy indicator itself had packed in after only 7 months.  Ripped the 2 rear ones off and replaced them with some Oxford Nanos I had kicking around the garage.   Means front and rear don't match so may replace the fronts if I can be arsed sometime.

Had new Roadsmart 2's fitted so went for a quick blast up Cheddar Gorge before tea to scrub 'em in. Great to be back on the NineT - love it  happy88

Fitted my new Dart fly screen Thursday night. Didn't have a lot of time so rushed it - never a good move. Got it fitted ok with only a bit of swearing, stood back to look at it and grabbed a microfibre cloth to wipe off the finger marks.  Looked at it again under the light and it's covered in fine scratches, must have been a load of grit on the cloth. Bugger. Ah well, it'll soon get stone chipped anyway.

Rode down to West Bay yesterday, had a munch on the harbourside then rode along the coast to Weymouth.

In West Bay I parked up next to a R1200RS. Test ride one of these last year and really liked it. If I had the cash I'd have one next to the NineT in the garage, probably with hard luggage for distance work. Maybe one day.

Alright Gilo - think a small screen not only looks a load better but pushes the air a bit further up the chest. Doesn't matter so much in the Summer, but when it was a bit nippy and I was doing a few boring motorway commutes it made a world of difference.

I had a huge Givi screen on mine which was shit, massive buffering so found a great condition OEM sport screen. Much better.

T out for a hurl yestrday tae try and learn how to ride it again.   Its so different after thoosands o miles on the KTM. Plus now everything works proper wi the new rear linkage bearings, non leaky forks and replaced head bearings.  Every thing set to the factory manual settings as weel.

Got the rear sorted oot now but the front still needs a tweek or two. Any roads was a damn fine excuse tae get oot and about ( wi a C-spanner, wee shifter and screw driver in mah pooch) for a blast.

Ahm still lovin ma T...such an involving ride, which ye need tae respect an think aboot cos thirs nae cornerin ABS, traction control, modes gubbins here!

The Tuoldo is for me the better bike, the wee yamaha is nice to ride though but the suzuki is incredibly dull, fast but dull. It struggles to lift the front even with TC off.

I'm off to the Isle of Man for a week of campervanning, boozing and trail riding on my Puzey. Just finished packing and currently having a beer & wondering what I've forgotten.
I had a slow puncture in the back Tyre and at first I thought I'd leave it as it was. In the end I took it to Dave Clarke Racing and glad I did because the inner tube was absolutely fucked and beyond repair where the tyre grip thingies had been rubbing it.
And he only charged £15 to replace the tube & turn the tyre round (so the sharp edge of the blocks face the right way).
See you in a week or so.  hi25

First ride out for over 7 weeks and was really looking forward to it.....

New "boots" so steady away start... and pretty much the same for the rest of me trip.

 - 2 Camera Vans & 1 Bike with camera tripod (all highly "visable" in "open" places) - no prob with that.

 - 1 Police car, parked 20 yards down a dirt track - copper stood at the side of it watching through the hedge.

 - 1 police car, parked in a field entrance, leaning over the top of the hedge... with binoculars !

Tiz amazing what you see when you are going slow - wonder how many i missed ?

All this in a hundred miles or so...

Great ride  in Wales with Whitey and Vinny today. Met them at the start of the Usk Rd and as we pulled away it started to piss down - absolutely hammered it - hailstorm, the works. At one point I was down to 20mph and couldn't see a thing while my boots filled with water running off my strides.

Stopped at the Steel Horse and I had to take my boots off to empty them out  angry19

Good thrash up through mid Wales then a hundred yards from the cafe at Crossgates I see blue lights in my mirrors - pull in to let them past and I realise it's a copper pulling us in. Arse. WPC gives us a bollocking - speeding, riding too fast for the conditions, overtaking over solid white lines, illegal plates etc.   We just stand and nod like three wise monkeys. After having a right go at us she lets us off and gets back in her car.  Arses unpucker.  First time in 30 years since I've been pulled, the speech is just the same though  big grin1

Good ride, shame about the rain and the plod, but occupational hazards I guess  smiley-laughing002.gif

From Ahascragh to Ballindine then up the N17 for a bit to Kiltimagh and across to Ballina, Killala, Downpatrick Head, Belmullet, Blacksod, Bar an Tra, Crowmore Lake, Bangor, then possibly the best road I've ever been on to to Mulrany, over to Newport, Castlebar, Claremorris, Ballindine and back for a Barbie at 6  happy88
On bit was about 10 miles lidless, only other person I saw was a farmer on a C90 doing the same thing. Almost deserted the whole part from Ballina to Mulrany, felt like I had it to meself. Perfect weather, perfect roads and the perfect bike. I hope the pics do it justice. I could have stopped a thousand times and took ten thousand pictures, yes sir

decided very late THursday night ah wiz goin tae the Armoy Road Races on Northern Paddy land so up at 4.30am Friday and scooted the 250 miles doon tae ferry at Cairnryan tae Belfast.

As ah had plenty time tae get tae Armoy ah cut back towards Larne and took the twisty A2 coast road North all the roond tae Portrush then ontae Portstewart.  Was a fine enjoyable,althoughshowery, detour.

Arrived at Armoy just in time for the last practice and the 2 Friday night races.  Then doon tae paddock tae set up camp n get a beer or two.  The field waas a sea o mud wi vans stuck awe ower the place. 

If ye have never experienced road racing the Armoy one is a good event after the big ones like the NW200 n UGP to visit. A close wee circuit wi lots of great viewpoints, jumps and fast sections full o incident and drama .

It was heavy showers off and on all race day Saturday but not one single race of 11 was delayed or called off. They simple declared it a wet race and the riders got on wi it.  Seeing Superbikes thrashed, hard cranked over on pissin wet roads, hurtlin roond a blind bend is something else and needs big bollox indeed!

This was within 10 secs of the start first lap o 2nd Friday night race.  The fancy shiny BMW, being picked up on the right, ran right up the arse o the red  bike lying beside the railings cos he somewhat went in a tad way too hot and had nowhere tae go.  The boy landed on his heid was knocked oot cold for his sins for a couple o mins while the lad he punted off was raging and stormed off. Ah think if the cuplrit hadnae been lying decked oot wi medics awe roond he wid o skelped him!

The knocked oot lad was fine after a bit rest got up and walked away and was racing again the next day.

(http://i.imgur.com/7ewHn7Kh.jpg)

This is MIchael Dunlops bike in the restart o the above race.  Again an incident straight efter the start before the first corner, his engine blew big style, pissin oil and massive cloud o smoke that took ages to clear it was so bad.  Most o the oil was on th road and in the belly pan.  Even the top lads can have a bad day at the office.

Aye Ali, weather could o been better as it turned the paddock and camping field intae a swamp so nae the best. Ah did bail oot on Sat night ( was booked Sunday ferry so had planned tae camp Sat too) and managed tae last minutechange the ferry so got hame aboot 3am Sun morning.

 The Armoy paddock is up off the track on an old farm wi nae a lot of hard standing.   A lot o the riders turned up on the grid wi cling film wrapped around the tyres as a way o beatin the mud. Some just turned up clarted tae the axles then sweeled the tyre wi a can o water before taking position. It was like watchin motocrossers going by the amount o mud coverin the boys boots and bikes.

Saturday was fine in between the short sharp heavy showers. Main thing was not a single race was stopped for weather, they jist got on wi it so fo rthe spectators it was good.

Took the Mutley to that Dublin for its service today, a nice 40 miles of country then a poo 70 miles of motorway, but not to bad tbh. They gave me this thing,,


(https://s26.postimg.org/wqm1lcrmh/IMG_9826.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/9ce29f9p1/)
Wicklow Harbour.

And yer know what, after initially thinking it was a tad agricultural looking and a bit boring I really got to like it. Good fit, good power, nicely delivered and handled superb for a pretty big thing. I can definitely see the attraction.

On decent country roads it really excelled, so much as to get me thinking I might like one.

Down past Arklow on the way to Wexford. Where the cows go to the beach..

Sallygap in the Wicklow mountains.
(https://s26.postimg.org/qe6wbiok9/IMG_9832.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/6jkupe9cl/)

Up the Wicklow Mountains is like a cross between Wales and Northumberland, mountainous twisty bits and open barren bendy stretches,, practically on me own,, perfect. When I was up there trying to nail it, it just couldn't compare to the Mutley. It seemed a bit stiff, dunno. Maybe it was the roads, a bit rough and bouncy. The Mutley just takes all that stuff in its stride.
I can't get me head around the throttle on trebles and fours any more, you always seem to be twisting it loads to get em revving. I got back on the Mutley at the dealers and nearly went through the fuckin fence  eek1z
Mind the service did include a throttle update, but its no difference tbh. The service was €252 and the next 2-3 will be the same price or thereabouts. Not too shabby considering some of the scare stories you see on the internet about Ducati.
All in all 220 on the Mutley and 200 on the Trumper. A cracking full day  happy88

Perfect weather min, looks a tad dull there but it was warm and sunny. Not rained here since Sunday so the roads were good. Pissing down today though  thumbdown1z
I need a day of rest though. Wednesday, going through the back door the new dog got under me feet, I fell like a downed rhino right on me elbow, that jarred upwards and I thought for a second I'd broken it. I've jarred me already gammy shoulder and I'm fuckin destroyed today.

Stopped and tried like fuck to push it down, Jesus it were stiff, pulling what looks like an obvious bar for adjusting it, gave it a right going over, even went round the front on me hands and knees looking for some locking tab or summert, thought it were jammed and gave up.

I just discovered a nice twisty route to get from work in London to home near Pompey. Leave work then boring ride down the A3 to Milford just south of Guildford, Milford to Midhurst, Midhurst to West Meon Hut, WMH to home. 45 miles of twisties with just one speed camera to remember. Yesterday I passed a BMW RR thingy on the A3 he started to follow at a distance and then turned off at Milford same as me. I was getting suspicious as the police use unmarked BMW's down here so kept the speeds down to almost legal but then he passed me over some double white lines, game on  tuono;. I was up his arse all the way to West Meon and he was so pissed off he was making more and more lairy overtakes  big grin1, I fucking love this bike.

Elevation changes of 1500 feet.  Its really one of my favorite rides.  Me and the T have been up and down this road at least 100 times over weekends. Francesca loves to have her neck wringed on this road.

Stunning weather here yesterday(sat) so set off down the WAW to Clare. Kilcolgan, Kinvara, Fanore, then the R477, R478 all the way down to Kilbaha and Loop Head. Just amazing roads, stunning scenery and hardly anyone else when your out of the touristy bits. Even had a bit of a spar with a lad on a little Yam 600 thing, not done that for yonks, racing each other, nothing stupid, just good fun  tuono; stopped for fish and chips in Liscannor surrounded by gobshites from Massetusas or somewhere.

This is on the way out of Doolin Co Clare overlooking the Aran islands towards Galway bay.

Ah got oot for a wee whiley wi the SV ownin middle Ricolet for a blast tae Tomintoul via Dufftown then ower the Lecht.  First half o the run wiz plagued wi muck ridden gravelly roads frae the run off frae the hills cos o the recent monsoons.  Made keepin yer eyes peeled an choosin yer line a priority!  That wiz bad enough but there wiz some sort o bicycle run goin on wi hunners o the lycra clad fuckers roond every bend for miles.

So stopped off in Tomintoul for a bit at the Old Fire Station Cafe for a fancy peece n a joos while the push bikes passed n buggered off the other direction.  Then lids back on and off up ower the Lecht at a fair old lick.

Jings that roads scary if yer canin it doon frae the top headin South way!  Huge whoops n blind crests wonderin does it go left or right here eek1z

Fine couple o hours oot an aboot anyroads

I went in via the road from Torridon. and out in the mist over the pass of the cattle. Only problem is sharing the road with other vehicles. When I was a boy of 15 yrs I spent a summer holiday at the West Highland School of Adventure at Applecross so it was nice to go back there.
It was spectacular all week, but was on my own.

Don't suppose you remember how many litres it took to refill ?

A few years back McDerv and I were doing the Lecht road.

An early Sunday start saw us up aboot Braemar when my fuel light came on, (roughly 120mls.)

It was still early doors and the fuel stations we passed didnae open until 10.00.

We just kept going over the Lecht and down towards Grantown on Spey.

I got to a mile short of the fuel station there and the speedo had 161mls on it.

Couldn't say exactly how much the tank took because Dot had to go and get me a gallon of petrol to get me to the station.

normally when filling up soon after light it's about 10/11 litres which doesn't make sense, but when I did the 31 ish MLS carefully got 16ltr in , so I try to fill up asap now ?????? I will say I always leave an inch or so at top of tank or the line on the nozzle .

Got oot fir a wee hurl wae McDerv.

Seeing as it was McDerv we had to do a dry hurl.

Peebles, Selkirk, Hawick then down that cracking wee road
towards  Newcastleton and on to Kielder.

Friday the Beemer was in for it's first annual service. I've done 6000 miles so it needed valves clearances checked too (they were all within spec).  I'd asked for a courtesy bike and wasn't too fussed what I got, other than didn't want an S1000RR again as I find sportsbikes so uncomfortable now. Wan't expecting a bleedin' scooter though ...  got a C650 Sport. Have to say, surprisingly good handling, fast enough (90-100 on the motorway no probs, likewise fast A road overtakes) and way more capable than I expected. Riding position not great for distances (did 180 miles on it over Exmoor) and I felt a plum wearing full leathers and black visor on it, but overall I was pretty impressed.

Today Summer was back - it was bloody lovely. So took the Mrs over to Wells on the Triumph and we sat on the grass in front of the cathedral and had a sarnie. Everyone in shorts and T shirts, in October.  Mental British weather  fou

Nae waterproofs mucker.   sad33

When Roy him and me were up staying at fort Bill earlier this year, Roy and I stayed at one hotel and he stayed in another.

We went to meet him on the Sunday morning and it was pissin down.

He was fannying aboot trying to get his waterproofs on.

The day before they had a small rip on one of the legs but now he kept forcing his big boot through the ripped section.

He was hopping aboot on one leg and yanking on the suit leg all the time making the gash bigger.

I wiz in knots at his antics.

By the time we made our first stop the fekkin thing was in tatters.

As for his back pack, he's got some tyre repair kit in there and whatever else I haven't a clue.

Fook me my side's are sore remembering that day.   laugh13

Met them at Ambleside & did:

Wrynose Pass
Hardknott Pass
Newlands Pass
Honsiter Pass
& loads of other passes i dont know the names of !

Hats of to Scott for putting that route together.

We had rain / fog / flooded roads / debris / wind etc...... Just got home and smiling from ear to ear.
Sounds daft, but a brill day with much piss take & banter as usual.

Only took 1 pic as the weather was pants most of the trip:

After i left them at Brough, headed over to Hawes and took the goat track over to Kettlewell..... only  to see a "Road closed due to flood" sign - couldnt be arsed to drive all the way back so i risked it. Twas quite deep and was brickin it a bit but got through without drama - daft i know, but fook me was i laughing after getting through !

Didn't get very wet considering the forecast and in fact had to unzip the jacket due to overheating on the way home through Preston.

By coincidence an old guy was telling me about this on Friday when we stopped for lunch on our trail bike ride. He said riders had reported a mystery handling problem so they took the bikes to a track and had an ex racer thrash them round for a few laps each,  one of the bikes flipped on the straight past the grandstand.
After that they cut them up rather than sell them on. He said this was Liverpool police and their pan-Europeans, he said they never identified the fault.
He isn't the most reliable of sources though.

I had someone try and run me off the road while I was overtaking a couple of years back. I stopped down the road and followed them til they pulled over.  I had major red mist and was going to deck the driver, but when he wound the window down he was in his 70's.  So I just bollocked him instead - I don't think I've ever been so offensive in my life, by the end of my tirade I think he'd got the message.  Felt sorry for his wife who sat there looking mortified the whole way through, but hopefully he'll never pull such a stupid move again.

I've no idea why he did it, we were just leaving a 30 limit going into a 60, Mr 4x4 takes exception to us two passing but did nothing to the couple of bikes who earlier passed him and us doing about 45 in the 30. Mr KTM got all angry and wavey, I just passed and got on with it.

Went out over the hills on the puzey trail bike on Sunday. Apparently the weather back home was brilliant, but we had all sorts in the morning in Wales including painful hailstones and a sharp wind.
Countryside was very wet indeed and my bike cut out whilst I was attempting an ambitious near 3 ft deep lagoon and I had to push it out.
Set off from LLanarmon DC in Whitey's part of the world about 15m west of Chirk and did a good few trails including the popular Wayfarers and the Pheasant Steps.
I was glad to get back in the van !

Non working day yesterday and I finished the jobs I had planned in the garden by lunchtime, so though it was bloody freezing I decided to go for a blast over the Steel Horse for a late brekkie.  Had new kit to test too, that I got in the Black Friday sales (Rukka jacket with £200 off, Belstaff strides with £300 off. Wouldn't have bought either at full whack).  Comfy and seem really well made.

The Flexius. It's the entry level Rukka, but still great quality and features. Flexible material too (hence the name I guess) so it's nice and close fitting.

Was crystal clear blue up here efter a couple of days snaw in Ricoland this week so ah got oot for a bit on the CRF250 the day but nae for too long as it was never less than -3 degrees, even at mid day.

Wanted tae get a feel for the knobblies in the snow. Was actually quite immense fun ride, albeit pretty slow, but had tae abort and head hame as ma mitts were seriously frozen cauld.

Took the T to Blood Mountain GA today. Rode hard, no police in sight anywhere.  Snow on the sides of the road. Had one particular corner where I knew the rear would slide. I hung with it, pinned the throttle and sure enough, left a really nice darkie leaving the exit. Fookin chuckling under the helmet the whole time. It were magic. I guess since my current battle with cancer, I said fuck it and ride heavy handed. The more I ride this thing, the more I think about why I have anything else...............
 Fuckin love my Tuoldo, love it.  Have to get pics up of new 6 pot brakes. 


  I guess what Im on about is, ride fellers, live and tell your loved ones how you feel. Life is short, up to you to make it sweet. Ride like the devil is on your ass..................

Sounds grim Felix, not been too bad here near Southport, very mild @ 12.5 centigrade and breezy.
I got the Puzey (Trail Bike) out and give it the once over as I might be up the Lakes on it next Sunday. lubed the chain up and had a good look round it.
Had a short ride round the block on it just to see if my knee is getting any better. I'm thinking the knee would be Ok for green laneing but not for difficult sections.
Trouble is I don't know what they are intending to ride over next Sunday, but I've not been out for yonks now so I'm keen.

I'm never spending a lot on one, it's not worth it unless it's the main thing in your life. They are only going to get spoiled and the lightweight stuff wears out & breaks in no time.
I was planning to get about £550 worth of Bafang kit and stick it on a sturdy donor bike with forks and a fixed back end.

It's not exactly access all areas down here and we usually go into wales where there are fewer walkers out.
The situation in Scotland is just ridiculous. If they opened up some forest trails you'd get loads of tourists on adventure bikes doing them.

Loads o standin up on the pegs stuff, kiddin on ahm a Dakar god.....man it kills yer forearms that when yer nae used tae it.   Good fun though until it was time tae go hame for ma tea.

Day off today, so got some more running in miles on the AT. Rain forecast to come in from the West, so I had to head East. Rode up to Cotswold Airfield for breakfast, down to Swindon to mooch round the bikes in Blade Motorcycles, then back through Wiltshire. Didn't see a drop of rain  smile2

Finished work early for a change. Took the T out for a 2hour hurl.  Remember why I love the old girl. Torque in right spots, handling still gives confidence. 
 Might've made the V4 jealous as when I got back, she wouldn't start. Reckon I need another trickle charger................
 Work on the FZ1's continue. New fuel pump came in so installed it. Letting set up before I put fuel in.   A good day for a change.  happy88

Another easy day?  Got home and smacked Ms. Ono on the ass. Remembering why I love her handling.  Had to adapt to the I4 motor but wound up revving her to the moon.  Guess I'm a bit anxious?  Pegged rev limiter 3 times before I learned not too. (12k)   Got back and eyed up the V4 T.............sun went down. GOOD THING.  Had angry right wrist gents, not a good mix.  Sumbitchin coppers about.  Maybe tomorrow.

Anyone not get out today? Had a good old hoon on the RC30 but after 4 hours me limp clutch wrist gave me so much pain on every change I had to revert to clutchless up and down changes. When I got home I could hardly hold the clutch lever in at all, I blame modern clutches for being so light we've all grown limp wristed.
Loomies was rammed full of bikers out for the first time this year so I went on to Goodwood for a cuppa.

Got the T oot and had a really good run ower tae Fort Bill for a Maccy Ds.  260 ish miles done n dusted.  Pretty much straight there and back wi nae mair than 20 mins stop tae scoff ma burger n scoop a coffee doon and the odd fuel top up.    Road were horrendous at first, still white wi salt wi great runs o grit everywhere, worn ruts n potholes, dead pine martens and a fair bit nasty wet patches under the trees but as ah moved West it improved greatly ( theres hardly been any snow on the West coast compared tae Ricoland).  It did start tae hailstone at Laggan but was jist a passin shower.

The return run hame was just epic as it had all dried up, the roads absolutely empty and wi the sun on ma back was able tae really crack on.........

Got out on mine for a couple of hours, couple of things to note. 1 it doesn't like traffic and heats up quicker than the Tuoldo, 2 it is absolutely mental on the back roads lifting the front in the first 3 gears with ease and in 4th and 5th on bumps. It's probably the first time I've had it out on dry roads since I got it, the handling is superb. Can't wait for a bit more heat in the tarmac.

Wuz on a Biker Down course last week... one of the slides showed a polite jacket toad... and one chap took the piss...

Presenter went to great pains to explain how effective and safe they are and that the police actually approve of them as they slow down traffic...

A slight pause then "we" all piped up that he was a twat !

Actually, the arm rests aren't such a bad idea.
Uncool? Yes.
But can be a lifesaver.
Mate of mine coming back from Germany late one night on his FJR13, missus on the back, felt her body weight shift.
He was lucky enough to catch her before she slid off the seat on a fast twisty.
She'd fallen asleep.
First thing he did when he got home was to fit home made arm rests

Nice and sunny today so took the Triumph out and did about 180 miles round North Wales. Fair bit of snow on the mountains and plenty of melt water pouring across the roads to try and catch you out when you think your on a dry stretch. Great to get out for a decent hoon though.

Still loads of salt on the roads so bike was proper minging when I got back.

Rode up to Crossgates for lunch yesterday. Late start as I was hungover after a night on the lash Thursday with an old mate.  Got layered up Winter style like the French tyre bloke, the M32 and M4 heading for the bridge were car parks so I was filtering about 20mph. I was sweating my nuts off - looked at the air temperature on the dash: 17degC. Not complaining but wtf?

Stopped off on top of the firing range above Sennybridge for a piss and pic stop, but it was blowing a hoolie and I was worrried about the bike blowing over, so I took a few quick pics and headed off down the descent slightly cross eyed.

So today.......evey year ah say never again and every year ah turn up and take a gander only tae say never again......yes ahm talkin aboot the esteemd MCN Scottish Mortorcycle Show.

Same old same old sums it up although did like the CCM stuff, very well made and yon Spitfire is  very nice indeed ( but unobtainable)

KTM/Husky had the Vitpalen thing on stand and had a wee sit on it and also its upright version. THEY ARE 125s IN DISGUISE!  Feel absolute totty in relation tae bikes of a similar CC size (although ahm sure the specs/dims will say otherwise).

So dipped oot the show early and went on an exploration o roads unridden in Fife then up through tae Scumdee ( oops Dundee) via a visit tae the Rev IM Jolly at Perth as thinking o choppin in the Fat KTM for something fresher so wanted tae see what value was left in mine ( nae much is the answer due tae the affy high miles). Then a ziggy zaggy route hame.

Tedious in what way Wilee?

S’funny, my Beemer S1000R was in pretty much every way the best bike i’ve ever owned, the most powerful, fastest, very good handling, all the leccy toys, pretty comfortable, and I loved it the 2 years I had it. But... I finally realised what road tests mean when they say “it’s too good” (which I always thought was bollocks). It was a stunning bit of kit, but it made everything a bit too easy, I didn’t have to be on my game to ride it stupidly fast.

Whereas the Tuono was a handful at times and you always knew it would bite back if you took the piss, and my R NineT is great because with only 100-odd bhp I have to work bloody hard to stay with the 150bhp+ stuff, which I enjoy because it’s down to me, not relying on big power.  The Africa Twin is a different kettle of fish but again I enjoy throwing that about and riding it in a way it’s not really designed for.

I guess I prefer hooning about on lower powered slightly flawed bikes.  The V twin T is damn near perfect, other than it’s thirst and crap range. Oh, and having to deal with Piagio  angry19


Title: Re: Anyone get out today ?
Post by: wileecoyote on April 09, 2018, 11:01:04 pm
G,  tedious in the way of NOT tying myself in knots. Like you said, it bites back if yer hamfisted.  I had a really long slide out of a corner that had me saying my prayers.  Like they say, dont let off, just let her eat.  Scared the shite outta me.  Like an idiot, I turned off the TC.  It might have looked cool but, I had all I could take.  Every centimeter I saw myself highsiding the thing.  Has gotta be the map its on.  When I think I've got a feel for it, it wheelies.  Again, looks cool but sheesh................

  I guess I pine for the feel of the Tuoldo. I know exactly where and when to pull the trigger. It is predictable where the new one is not. Or I am nowhere as good as I think I am. (Which is probably the case)  I reckon I need a few trackdays on it to realize what its all about.

Since I've had my V4T i have covered 1400 miles mostly in the cold and rain. On the few dry days out on it I've found it to be entertaining to ride, it handles and stops great. It also lifts the front in the first 4 gears which is hilarious, it also gets the bars wiggling about which I don't mind. It also jump well  angel1. For me it's the obvious upgrade from the Tuoldo, I still miss the V twin  engine braking though.

When to the footy yesterday, the less said the better. On the way home I did some roads I've never done in years, realy enjoyed it until I went tear arsing up a hill, front wheel just skimming the ground like a proper racer. And ahead pulled over at the side of the road was a group of bikes, two of them were police bikes  eek1z I slammed on the brakes and passed them at 55 in a 50 but both of them were standing there giving me the evils but they never came after me and I don't think they had a camera on me either so a lucky one there. Sat nav said my average speed for the day was 55 and top speed 130, not bad when you consider how much time was spent filtering through football traffic.

It's usually cancelled in high winds.
Did it last year in the car, coming home from the OH and watched two bikes and a scooter go over.
If you can see the tops of the waves getting blown off by the wind you're fucked.

Gourock-Dunoon I think, we were on a couple of ferries that day and it doesn't look like the Portavadie crossing.   what5

Rode down to Pembrokeshire yesterday with Liam and Vinny, stayed in Vinny’s mate’s caravan. Good ride down in the sun, out in Narberth last night for beers and curry. Mick joined us for a few pints, and joined us today for a thrash round the local back roads. It was bloody sweltering, I was too hot on the bike, even at speed, but not complaining- we wait long enough to get weather like this.  Good couple of days  happy88

talkin o ignition keys...got me first "keyless" bike the day.  Takes a while tae get used tae just stoppin and walking away frae yer machine an yer aye checkin for the keyfob in yer pooch.

Any roads picked up the new Katoom today and went on a round o Scotland tae get some miles in. Left Perth up tae Green Welly,  Friday but Polis every where frae Crieff tae Tyndrum  thumbdown1z.  LAshin doon wi rain as weel.

Headed up thru Glencoe and roond the Kinlochleven loop. A few miles in saw awe these auld trials bikes pootlin along the road then twigged its start o the ISDT. So stopped for a bit beside a bit where they wir "triallin" up a burn. Was quite enjoyable watch fowk fall in and the variety of ancient auld machines was quite interestin.

Then FT Bill, again hoachin wi polis and tourist types n coach tours, Spean Brig, the fast Loch Laggan stretch, Aviemore and hame.

On leavin Aviemore in the middle o nae where and mid over take the fekkin thing died on me  eek1z. Coasts tae the side and has a look about, seems like its oot o fuel or similar but showing 3 bars on gauge scratching1.   Has a further lookee and find a bloody hose popped off cos the spring clip wiznae over the end but sat half way up the hose  angry19,  and only one o the fuel taps wiz only partially opened. Ah had done about 190miles by this points. Sorted hose back on, opened taps 100% and she wiz fine efter that.

 all in all  just shy o 300 hunner miles......so thats it half run in awready  happy88 Will get the rest in ower the Sat/Sun

Hose as ah found it...a shitey call has been made tae Drysdales!

Went through Delph, Saddleworth, Holmfirth on the way out and on the way back came over the Snake pass.
Came off a junction early on the M61 and got a bit lost in the Atherton/Tyldesley/Bermuda Triangle and came out through Hindley & Westhoughton onto the A6.

Day aff the day to get 1st service done so took the opportunity tae hae a good long hurl on the way hame.  Perth - Blairgowrie - Ower Glenshee - Braemar- up tae the Lecht - then back doon thru Strathdon.  

Was seriously windy top o the Glenshee mountain stretch, particularly bad cos ah had all the boxes on the bike so was like a sail.

Stopped at ancient Glenbuchat Castle for a wee pause and P behind a tree ( as ye do)

Hello fellow freaks  big grin1

Just spent the weekend with the Capo lads in Llandovery camping for a long weekend. Great bunch of folk, some superb roads and stunning scenery, in particular Llyn Brianne and Elan valley. Didn't get pics of either as we were busy riding but some great scenery and roads.

You lucky chaps, 5.5 hour hike for me to get there! From my house I could probably get to Lyon in that time lol!

That was my third time to Llandovery, the weather held out thankfully, only a little bit of rain on the journey down there, fortunately it was dry at the campsite when I arrived, didn't fancy pitching the tent in the wet, you can see the clouds in the campsite pic! Camping is £6 a night in high season, great little campsite!

The Capo performed flawlessly, it's such a great bike, I love it, just does everything so well.

It could have, it would easily fit as you can take down part of the bedroom (actually one of the reasons I went for that tent originally), but I don't fancy a Capo falling on top of me in my sleep, don't think I'd awake from that one lol! The tent is a Vango Airbeam, or Nito's bouncy castle as the guys call it, so no tent poles and the like!

Love the pics loons an got tae echo Felix royal wedding comment.....roads were dead this morning. Set off at 10 wi nae idea where tae go other than head oot initially on well kent tarmac tae test oot the new Michelin Power RS tyres ( very very good by the way)....250 miles done the dayso could be said well scrubbed in.

Man...ah absolutely love riding the Tuono..just pure unadulterated non rider aided non electrickery mental ridin fun.

Zig Zagged ma way up thru Dufftown, Graigallachie, Grantown on Spey. Then up the Davah Moor road tae B+Nairn ( this is a road everyone should ride at least once, of the beaten track but is a cracker)

Ended up at Culloden Moor, scene of an goo d arse kicking for us Scots back in the day....a real historical sore point!

SKipped ower the Kessock Brig then theres a good loop via Beauly back into Inverness, stopped at Mitchells bike shop for a nosey but nae much tae see, then kindo of did the reverse loop all the way hame ( albeit a tad quicker cos got the feel o the new tyres).  Absolutely enjoyable day oot wi the sun splittin the sky....best enjoyed while we can.

A View of Kessock Bridge.... not often seen from this side

(https://i.imgur.com/8S62T0ih.jpg)

The view tae the mountains...theres still snaw up there.

About 10-30


Been int Trough today meself, coming home,,,, left out of Gallows lane, past the Workhouses, big left hand sweeper, turn tight right over the bridge, bearing left towards the a59 Ribchester junction where'd you turn left going out. Just past some old house/buildings opposite the river being done up, me and thee walked round them once had a piss, taking the piss out of old codgers and fudge (i remember shit like this). Told our Maud this tale, just went up the rise, bloke with big beard on a little Duke smoking on the right side, (your left) a grey fechter followed by a yellow fechter come towards me, and some fanny about 100 yards behind comes out from behind an orange van on a black dream totally oblivious to the giant VW truck with his chum in  lookup1

Litterally said, “me and Garry”, and fuck me there you were, odd as a cod.

And another 1:
I went over the Trough myself today, direction from inland towards coast. Much later than you lot due to an incredible amount of Tennent's Super consumed on Saturday, it having been the wife's birthday (any excuse), so couldn't do much before 1pm as my breath would have buckled the pinlock visor insert.
Did anybody else see that mattress & those boxes (from a BBQ from B&Q?) chucked on the ground at the side of the road near the river? Disgrace.
For the a change I turned left on the way down from the top before Quernmore and sort of headed towards Chipping, then Bleasdale, very enjoyable, got home at 5.30.
I've knocked my RH front indicator off putting the bike away, bugger.
I was wondering if I should get some taller handlebars, or ones set back a bit, to make the bike a bit comfier.

I was wondering if I should get some taller handlebars, or ones set back a bit, to make the bike a bit comfier.

I'm thinking the same E.

I've had the thought from the first time I sat on my machine but I've done nothing about it.   blush1

Its nae bars ye need. KTM do a riser set wi anti vibe doofers within .  Wi the additional spacer fitted raises bars aboot 10mm and back a bit as weel. Have used the same set now on all 3 KTMs and really make differnce. Nae sure if fit the Dukes. Will be in the power parts catalogue. Ahl hae a look.

Had to visit the dentist and accountant this morning so killed some flies in the afternoon with the Tuono.

Went to Goodwood to see if anything was happening and there were some Ferrari's racing.

Then went home and cleaned the Tuono and the RC30 which was still covered in dead flies from last time I had it out.
