Re: Hawes- - July.

To add insult to injury, the sidewall of my tyre got ripped so I had to fix that before cycling home & getting to A&E


Well hard :D

Speedy recovery Alastair.

All the best

Re: Hawes- - July.

I was gutted to have to cancel this last Wednesday after faceplanting whilst out cycling. The plastic surgeon sewed my lip back on & the dentist will fix my broken teeth. What actually happened Alastair? Was it a road bike or mountain bike you were on? Wishing you a speedy recovery, and as smal...

Re: Hawes- - July.

Hi all Chris asked me to give all those at Hawes this weekend an update. He can't get onto the site himself as his computer is at home - and he's in York! The bike was collected no problem yesterday but they could not get Chris home. In the end his brother-in-law, who lives in York, collected Chris ...

Re: Hawes- - July.

Back home - good run back other than 3 miles of filtering to get over the Queensferry Crossing. Good job my panniers are so slim :D . It was great to catch up with various Boxertrixers, old and new. Many thanks to Chris and Amanda for leading the Scottish contingent there and back so well, and of co...

Re: R1200/1250 RS Suspension - Dynamic ESA vs 'normal'

Just goes to show, it's horses for courses - or some other inappropriate epigram. As Dave remembers I much prefer telelever to conventional front forks, although I'm sure Al is right in saying the ESA does mitigate fork dive under braking. The more I think about it, in terms of ride quality and cost...

Re: R1200/1250 RS Suspension - Dynamic ESA vs 'normal'

My 2016 1200RS has ESA and it's handy to reset the suspension when I have Sue as pillion. The suspension works well enough although the rear shock did fail and need a new controller, luckily when it was still under warranty. Prior to the RS I had a GS with ESA but for what it's worth thought the GS ...

Great write up. Best colour scheme of all I reckon, but I'm biased as I had one!

Re: Vertu BMW Sunderland

Well done Taz. The RS is a great bike. I've only got the 1200 but have had a few rides on the 1250 and it's even better.

Enjoy the bike.

Re: Hawes- - July.

Hi Peter

Excellent idea - I've booked the Fountain - not far to walk after a drink. I assume The Scottish border guards will be stood down by then.

All the best
