So that's why the road was diverted on my commute to work this morning..... 20 tons of chocolate all over the road!!

The Euro K Club Lounge / Stove enameling ....

Previous owner of my X3 had done a horrible rattle can job on the alloys, mate of mine who does my MoT's said he could get them done properly in whatever colour I wanted. Figured I'd go for graphite grey (hopefully wont show the dirt easily :) )

Very pleased with the results!

Other (K) Bikes or anything else! / Another day off ....

Other (K) Bikes or anything else! / Bonding with the K1
« on: September 05, 2019, 09:44:23 pm »
Been using the K1 quite a bit recently …. and I love it. Despite its 30 years of age I find it surprisingly modern riding, comfy, good brakes, good handling with a surprising turn of speed.

 I find the 16 v engine needs more revs than the old 8 valve motor to get it in the flow but once she does it's easy to find it flowing to silly speeds :)

 Went up the Horseshoe Pass the other day and there was a guy taking pics of the bikes. Found him on Facebook and he very generously gifted me the pics he'd taken :D

The Euro K Club Lounge / Mobile Charging ....
« on: August 26, 2019, 12:11:47 pm »
For some reason on different annual trips to Scotland I've had issues charging my 'phones.

This year I took two chargers and cables, both of which I'd tested as good at home. Both of which gave problems again! Even bought a charger locally "just in case" and it made no difference.

Luckily I had the bike set up so there was a charger in the tank bag powered by the bikes socket, which worked a treat, so I had the bike charge it during the days riding.

The USB chargers I had worked perfectly on the BMW comms system in the helmet. But would be flaky charging the 'phone.

One hotel, The Garvault Lodge Hotel in Kinbrace I accepted would probably be problematic as it's listed as the UK mainlands most remote hotel, doesn't have mains water, mains electric, TV's etc. Although you could get internet access from one corner of the hotel :D Very eccentric place, as me and my mate were the only guests the owners invited us to dine with them, very interesting couple.

Anyway back to the question has anyone else had any charge issues or is it just me :)

Oh of course once back home the 'phones all charge as per normally

The Euro K Club Lounge / trip weather
« on: August 16, 2019, 07:54:32 am »
been thinking a weather website that plots weather along a trip would be a good idea.... have now found one :) a bit basic but useable !

Ride Out Reports / Foray to Moray ... and beyond

this years trip (starting on Monday the 19th up to Glasgow) with me and my mate, Paul Davies.

Good morning tinkering, my R80RS now has twin disks

Looks much more "balanced"   :)

Other (K) Bikes or anything else! / Fantastic day
« on: July 23, 2019, 11:34:02 pm »
Spent today in the company of two mates riding down to the Elan Valley and back, blisteringly hot day, and of course K1's are known for chucking heat out (which was an excuse to keep the speed up)

The bike performed flawlessly, handled brilliantly and surprised my mate on the BKing with the performance levels.

Then popped to the Horseshoe Pass for the Tuesday bike night. All in all a good day.
