Al
Steve hasn't been well enough to balance and ride his any of his bikes since October.
So no we weren't on bikes.

Re: Steve Parry

Update - I took Steve out for lunch today and we had a nice little tour of all the closed pubs in a 30 mile radius of his house. The hospitality industry in Wales was closed. So we ended up at the Pondy cafe for steak pie and chips. He looks well enough, but still has a long way to go to shake of th...

Re: Insurance

Well I must have fitted into the target group last year because they were competitive then.

I can't think that going from 63 to 64 has changed much, but who knows when underwriters are involved?

Re: Insurance

You remember that bloke who was pissed off with all the banks charging too much and not lending to proper businesses - Dave something? Well he started the "Bank of Dave" in Rochdale, Burnley or somewhere up north and charged low interest and lend to local people and businesses, paid sensib...

Insurance

Was insured last year with E Bike as it was easy. This year's renewal they hiked by nearly £100. So rang round and got bored so went with Be Wiser Insurance at the same price as last year -£170 for F800 ST and R1100S fully comp. Reasonably happy with that, cant be a***d wasting any more time on it. ...

Re: Anybody got any experience of riding in Russia ?

"Safer" countries to ride through might be Germany, Denmark and ferry or road bridges to Sweden, Finland and drop down to St PB. that way.
You're in the "west" for much longer and less time in "cowboy country" that way and on a bike that would seem sensible to me anyway.

Re: Steve Parry

Steve has been assessed today and deemed to be ok enough to be let back home, although he is, and I quote - "shattered".

Andy - will do, but he's not well enough to go down the bookies for you! :D

Steve Parry

Steve is in hospital again with a resurgence of pneumonia.
They have kept him in over the weekend and will assess on Monday.
I'll report back here if/when I hear any more.

Re: Steve Hislop - The lost letter

Spent a night in the hotel bar at the Manx GP with some mates, one of whom knew Steve Hislop. Hissy walked in and came over to chat with us as he knew one of us and he was really normal and not "affected" by his fame / ability. One of the other residents (a racer) had come off in practice ...

Re: R1100S Sport Tryes

Al I was paying double that price in the early 2000's for Bridgestone trackday tyres. Was lucky to get 1000 to 1500 miles out of them including road riding to & from the circuit. Put the 11S on a trailer or in my Renault Espace after that to save road wear. I've found Michelin PR3/4 to be excell...

Re: 350lc YPVS

I remember when Mat Oxley lapped the TT at 100mph on a 36 bhp TZR 250.

I raced one of those in the Manx GP and at least I finished the race, unlike Oxley, who fell off on the last lap near the end.
Sold the bike to Phil Read straight after the race for his lad to start racing on.

Re: Tail tidy - ridiculously small plate

Al

Chris can't sign off "Every Trip An Adventure" cos he doesn't own a GS.
He has to go down the Cafe, tatoo and 'shed built' route or bollock naked in the Coop to be making his statement.
Good fun though keep it up.
