Re: Boxertrix Roll of Honour: Most prolific posters

I was shocked to see my name there .... Living here in sunny Spain, riding a few times a week, I don't spend nearly as much time on the web, as I used to , when I was "toiling" for a living in UK. It hardly seems like work, being a garden boy / pool cleaner out here !!! Who knows, with any...

Re: Not a BMW

Re: Rear wheel bearing/paralever

The rear wheel bearing is very easy to do.

Lots of yew choob clips showing it, with no special tools .

My bearing cage broke and tore the seal out, I limped home at 30km per hour, ordered the bits from Motor Works, and its done about 5k miles since I changed it all.

Re: Should I shxt can my Spain tour end of Sep /Oct?

Totally agree with Blackal & Gerry, we feel we can travel to France and enjoy our type of holiday( away from mass tourism destinations)in an environment that is most probably safer than the one where we live. Al. I totally agree with you Al. From what my daughter tells me, it seems folk out her...

Re: Should I shxt can my Spain tour end of Sep /Oct?

Chris, we are planning to go to France on 21/8, like you, not 100% sure about it, we are going in the camper and planned on using aires and small sites away from the main tourist spots, we feel with more space we would be as safe or safer in France than in Exmouth, a busy seaside town full of peopl...

Re: Should I shxt can my Spain tour end of Sep /Oct?

I live here in Spain. We all wear masks in public, we all use hand gel in shops, and cafes and bars. All cafes have reduced seating. I go out, and always choose an open air table. The staff clean tables and chairs before use. And , just use common sense. Enjoy your trip, and take in this beautiful c...

Re: Front Wheel Spindle

I had a similar problem , but mine was easy to fix. It appeared about 100 miles after fitting new brake pads ... (EBC)

Dumped them and fitted Goldfren ( I'm partial to them from racing days) and problem disappeared .
