@stevebaldy LOL ! saw bits of it last night --- cringeworthy or what ? do they keep little Mikie in a broom cupboard cos he only seems to be rolled out on a Saturday to test new 'sports' I actually saw him doing 'quidditch' once --- just the once
Technical and tyres
Thanks again for the guidance on the battery voltages. I have owned this particular bike for nearly 3 years, so I'm not sure how old the battery is. I will continue to monitor it's performance and keep it charged if it looks like I'll not be using the bike for a while, which is, after all, what my oximiser charger is for. Incidentally, I did get an estimate at one point for a replacement LCD unit. No bargain at £630 inc. VAT. So let's hope that not too many VFR owners need one of those.
The French being French will just ignore any law they don't like and if the authorities start clamping down , they'll take to the streets and bring the country to a standstill as they've done before.
Unlike most countries , when French bikers protest , they do it properly .............
The FFMC (our equivalent to MAG) are are quite a powerful group who have been known to bring every major city in France to a standstill at the same time. Got caught up in one in Marseille once - very impressive.
The chances of being pulled in France by the police are slim if you're on British plates unless you're doing something really stupid. They can't be arsed with the paperwork.
Gray, it's a pleasure if we can help your lady find something suitable.
My little lady has another problem with ladies bike gear because she is only 5 foot tall on a good day and has tiny feet.
Good luck !
I normally wouldn't agree with you as I'm a massive Rossi fan but in this instance you're bang on.Sam's win was top draw after the kind of weekend he had and when was the last time you seen such a winning margin in moto3? Then again how long will Leon Haslam continue to get top rides with only a handful of wins in christ knows how long he's been excusing his way ? He's been living off his old mans reputation since day one,I wonder what the excuse will be this year?

Touring & travel
I did a solo trip around France last year in July and it was great. Got down to the south coast and stopped on a campsite at Le Lavandou, very busy round there at that time but lots of campsites and should be quiet when you go. Its only 20 miles from St Tropez along a nice coast road so thats worth a trip. I also recommend Annecy in the Alps. A great campsite to stop at is Camping Champs Fleurie which is about 4 or 5 miles south of the town itself. All amenities near by and the manager Catherine is a cracking blond lass who speaks good English. I also recommend Amboise in the Loire Valley for a campsite which is vast and only a few minutes walk into town, and its cheap. Hope this helps.
well due to visiting spain for 6 days then work commitments managed to get the bike out yesterday, went up past the raven cafe at whitchurch then off over to the ponderosa, had a quick cuppa then off home through bridgnorth. good day still learning.
had my first close one with an oncoming car but hehe learn by your mistakes..... got a little bit complacent. i know bad thing on a bike.. thankful of fitting r1 brakes callipers up front. thats as much as i will say.
Buying and selling
Unless your names Gimley, cruisers arent for you.
Being 6 foot 2" tall and 130 kg myself any bike looks small.
The only bilke that looks right with me on according to my little lady is the Rocket 3.
So forget everything I just said. The Rocket 3 is the cahones !
Sorry jimbo, its a been a long day
