Re: Puncture repair kit

Thanks all, order placed with Somerset Commercials. I did have one of there’s but left it under the seat when I swapped my bike three years ago.

Shaft drive check

Hi all, I recall Milliplod recommending a bike shop who charge a reasonable price for checking the shaf5 drive. I’ve emailed him but guess he is away. Can anyone remember who it was please

Re: Autumn Ride

I agree, I got 90 miles done on Wednesday. Really great dry roads and not much traffic. Lincolnshire Wolds at their best.

Re: Ear defense

I always use ear plugs these days and put my current hearing issues (crowded rooms and loud background noise eg busy pub) in said environment down to my early biking days and the fact that I raced two strokes every weekend without protection.

Re: how reliable 1200gs

Re: how reliable 1200gs

I have a 55 plate 1200. Brilliant to ride anywhere. Only issue has been the gear selector indicator or potentiometer. It wouldn’t show neutral. This is a known issue and had my bike been built in Oct 55 it would have had the upgraded bit.This came after riding for about six hours in pouring rain. I ...

Oh wow, when did this happen?
I met him once when I spent a day with him whilst he serviced my bike. His wood and his animals will be missing him.

No MOT is a non endorseable offence.
Duty is on the owner to know the due date.

Re: Elm Trees

Most accidents in tree felling come from similar situations where the under tree springs up. You could tether it before tackling the pinea section at a time.

Re: Elm Trees

A beautiful mature elm has succumbed in the last year close to where I live. Big loss. In the late 70 and 80s I had a business taking down dead and dying elms. They are my favourite tree. Typically they get to about 15 years or so old then succumb.
