This is the best thread that's been on here in ages ! Exactly the spirit of adventure that I was aiming to recapture with my recent trips to Scotland on my old ER5 . F**k your BMW Adventure bikes ! This is the adventure . Bungee some gear on anything with two wheels and just go . Brilliant ! By the way , I beat you to the phone box . Ten minutes after this photo was taken I tackled the Devil's Staircase and burned out my clutch . I still limped all the way back to Coventry though. viewtopic.php?f=23&t=64618

Haha! Yes! There's loads of them. Thanks Bob. This is turning out quite nicely. Just need the chain to f**k off on me or a push rod to get fired out now. But no chance of that, it's a Honda cbg, "it'll gu for-iver". Hmmm

Haha silly me I just realised it's the same bloody phone box. It was strewn inside with tacky bunting for whatever I'm guessing is Welsh for happy birthday/merry Christmas. Lovely bit of road round them parts.

Sorry to those people that came to Wales a smidge early but the weather is cracking. Sun's out and there's a gusting breeze of a wind, perfect drying day.

Couldn't resist a fettle. Oil was at the quarter way up mark, so required about three tablespoons, though it might be fine it's going to get a right thrashing tomorrow to get the 160miles ish home so I'm treating 'er rete.
