    Trade up or expand the fleet?

    Fuel shortages in the UK?

    Hello from Spain

    Many thanks for that I'm a big fan of 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' (been to the Western Town near Almeria many years ago) but didn't know I was so near to Sand Hill Cemetery Hope to be back in Spain next year. Enjoy the Balkans, I certainly did Mike

    brake pedal height lowering

    I found out the hard way. The brake pedal was lowered just before Winter set in a few years ago so when I rode the bike in Spring it took a bit of head scratching to work out why the CC wasn't working! Mike

    What frames are these?

    Those are Givi Trekker 46ltr which most people use as a top box When I had Trekkers on my S10 I used 33ltr panniers with a 46ltr as a top box Worked really well although I later changed to Outbacks Mike
