    Dakar 2022

    Well it just finished today,,,,the best and hardest rally in the world,,, across the deserts of Saudi this year For those of you that don't follow it, Sam Sunderland from the UK has won by just 3 mins from 12 days of racing. Great achievement. Pat
  2. Happy Christmas everyone,,,, relax and enjoy
  3. Hey Danny I've had the same bike for years,,, there good. I suggest you make the rear suspension a little softer, this lowers the bike a little bit that you probably need. Use the C spanner on the shock. I wouldn't lower the front as it makes the bars shake terrible and it also falls quicker into the corner's which is not nice, especially when going slow. Don't worry about the gear indicator,, after a while you won't even notice, you'll soon here when you're in the right gear,,,, you'll also notice you've got it wrong when you try to throttle away,,,,, it will soon come right to you. When you get used to the bike you will be turning up the rear suspension again. The harder you push the bike the more stiffer the suspension you will need. There a fairly low seat height anyway so just wait and get used to the bike. I put 60k miles on mine and she never gave me any trouble. There also very fast if you keep the revs up. Good luck with yours Pat

    At the moment I'm on Metzeler RoadTec Z6. 120 front 160 rear My last few tyres I have tried different types, to see what works best. Different types had added benefits but this set I have now are really good,,,, in wet and dry. I do throw my bike around a bit in fast and slow situations. They have never given me any reason to doubt them. Down the middle have no grip pattern but this is to give longer life when the bike is traveling up straight. Corners good in both wet and dry. Last year's Mot said I did 10,000 miles and these are still the same tyres I have on. They have actually outlasted my chain and sprockets. My route to work is half fast riding and then slow with plenty of corners and roundabout's. The only thing I have noticed with them is that the right hand side of the tyre is wearing faster but I think that is because of the way I enter roundabout's and then power around them as to not lose much time going to work. Anyway hope this helps. Pat

  12. I had a bloody great weekend, loved every minute. 100 per cent agree on a second meet every year. End of August ?? Blackhat you choose? Great ride out,,,, lots of miles, loads to see, great roads, perfect speeds (fast X slow), really like riding with you lot as we now know eachother's riding style's over the years. Your a great bunch of lads. Thanks Merve for the route and leading the way. No crashes is good as it doesn't spoil the day. I had good fun at the back, kicking up a sand storm on poor Tommy,,,, I know you were swearing at me, I can lip read,,,,, + out sneaky pint was so funny at the time. Really good weekend,,, my boots were full of water when I left Merve but the rest of me was dry. I took A40 home in the end,,,, was busy, had to do a lot of 50mph filtering. My back tyre is dead, I'll be lucky to get the week out of it. Yellow mellow,,,, pitty you didn't make it after all your time trying. Thanks all,,,,, chat soon,,,,,,, ps I didn't take any pictures, sorry Pat
