Re: Northern Meet Sweepstake

Hi Rob,
I’d feel better aiming for the House of Bruar, the facilities seem more appropriate.

Re: 1956 Panther on ebay

Lovely bike though a bit pricey?
I had a 1952 Panther 600 outfit when I was 16, wish I had it now...

Re: Sammy Miller Museum

Wee tip gents. If you join the British Motorcycle charitable trust, you get free entry to the SM museum and a bunch of other museums clustered around it. (Beaulieu, Tank museum etc) Went there last year but the weather was horrendous - tent got blown down, gear soaked and high tailed it back north!...

Re: F900RT

I tried a 900XR. The screen is awful. Well, for me anyway. Noisy. Two positions. The Chinese engine didn't appear to have 100 hp. Seemed a bit flat. I think the tank is 19 litres. I tried a Triumph 900 Tiger. Screen good, the engine seemed a bit tough, as it has a strange crankshaft setup. Got on m...

Re: Northern Meet Sweepstake

Well, here we are on the last day of May 2020. I would have liked to have ridden to Biggar today to meet up with other forum members and enjoy a chat, but it was not to be. I'm assuming that the Aroma Coffee House is closed, although riding more than 5 miles and meeting with more than one other hou...

Re: What are your thoughts on this

I feel though I have enjoyed going for a ride again that we have already lost something with road traffic rising again. For a brief spell we could walk in the roads, walk across roundabouts, and the air was fresh.There were deer and pheasants on the main road through the woods. Already there are qu...

Thanks Keith.. I'm in a conversation with a director who is preparing a 3 mn promotional film for the park. I have suggested that the camera follows a guy riding his classic BMW through the park (ha!), and as he waves to people on his journey, the camera can trail and focus on whatever activities t...

Re: An Important Moral Question

This "morality test" is making the rounds; Jerry Dworkin kindly sent me a copy. Its author is unknown. This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation...

Re: What are your thoughts on this

Went to Pateley Bridge this afternoon. A few bikes there. Lots of space, nobody ignoring the rules. Maybe 10 people. Plod drove from the local sty to have a look, then drove the 300 yards back again. Been better walking down and having a chat with the great unwashed, but probably alone on duty. Caf...
