ULEZ is going to be a problem for some then, which is a shame.

yes & no lol...
1 they could black out number plates or if they want to stay legal hope they don't get caught whilst riding in a large group
2. I agree that bikes may incur the £12 charge but I am sure that if they are that passionate about the cause then they will pay it. (what my club has said is that if any club member incurs the charge the club will pay for it!)

I'm expecting somebody to pop in here any minute and start arguing  :rolleyes

Is that the five minute argument or the full half hour? :pokefun

I have paid for the full argument!

Haven't been myself, however when I went to Jersey I went to the German Hospital there & that place was about as much as I could take!

& still people out there try to deny it ever happened!!

my Shoei is probably 6 years old (approx. 30k miles)
my Arai is 22 years old (only use it as a spare for my youngest if we pop out local) (approx. 4k miles)


I kinda know where your coming from, hardly used and only short trips.
But in all honesty id rather walk than risk the life of one of my kids with a 22 year old helmet.

not disagreeing as my daughter has her own helmet which is too big for my son, in fairness he only been pillion once and if he showed an interest might buy a helmet but problem is finding one as they live in deepest Cornwall & nearest place probably Plymouth or Exeter!

have any tests been done on helmets as they age to prove they degrade over time or is just the science of composite materials?

I would happily offer my helmet up for testing if it would prove it!

Has anyone tried Avon tyres on the 600 yet?
Maybe we should all be buying British products once we crash out of the EU next month!   :smash

ok so my son been selected to play in a  "round ball" tournament near Brest in June, so I decided that rather than get stitched up driving the parents minibus I'm taking my bike over on Ferry (Plymouth to Roscoff). (booked!)
destination is approx. 40 miles from ferry, campsite is 8 miles from there.
never taken a vehicle over.
I know they drive on wrong side of the road & that's a bout it!
I know June a way off but want to make sure of few things like, I was thinking about taking bike fuelled up (its a Triumph Nightstorm , full tank range 170miles fitted with panniers ).. is full tank allowed on ferry?
what legal requirements to I need? GB plate? bulbs? warning triangle? hi-vis?
searching through I see gloves are compulsory.. but I wear them anyway!

cheers
Robbie
