Touring list
« on: October 10, 2019, 05:21:03 pm »
Now that my new bike has a topbox I need to revise my touring list
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Fab.... but these days if confronted by brigands on the continent I’m not quite sure unfurling the Union flag will have the desired result... 😬🤣
Late emerging biker - took the first bike plunge at 50 with a 12GT : swapped for a 13S 9 months in... Now got my mitts on a lovely 2014/13R Dynamic in rrrrrracing rrrrred! Bloomin’ lovely!!

I always carry a tow strap.

I've carried a nylon tow line since 1995. I used it once to tow a mate off the M4 in 1995 and have never needed it since; wood, touch etc.
