Re: On display...

It still rides surprisingly modern feeling, and according to the GPS will still record 150 mph (allegedly officer ;) ) This is her outside the Silverstone Hilton on a business trip to KTM UK when I was with KTM Chester, having just finished a commemorative lap of the circuit at Anglesey (hence the n...

On display...

Last weekend Halliwell Jones Motorrad Chester had a breakfast open day, one of their techs is an ex colleague of mine and they'd asked via him if they could have some of my bikes for their classic display. So they had my BoxerCup, the K1 and the R80-RS .... the HP4 is, sadly, not mine :D PXL_2024051...

Re: 2014-2020 Headlight Guard

I'm on my 2nd Slipstream one, the first succumbed to a large stone that fell off the back of a gravel wagon. I saw it bouncing off the road it hit the protector square on taking a large chunk out of it. Thankfully the headlight was unmarked. To me an absolute essential on an RT with its huge headlig...

Re: USB connections

hacks me off how many issues Apple create because they lock everything down as propriety to them. Same with trying to run Garmin stuff on Macs at times

Farkle for my RT

Sounds lovely, not loud just a bassier tone, and there's a lovely crack to the exhaust note when using the quick shifter

Re: Electronic payment on French toll roads

I got a Bip n Go tag for my trip last September, it was a Godsend. My travelling companion cheaped out and didn't he ended up with major hassles including one situation where in temper he broke the barrier ...

Simplon Pass 2023

After a fantastic trip to the Bol d'Or in September 23 I came home via Italy and Switzerland.

The money shot for me was on the Simplon Pass, it's now my PC desktop at work to remind me why I'm sitting at a desk :D
