Re: RTTB 24th June 2018 - more pic's.

Bookend shot. Funnily enough while you lot were at Land's End I was up here. (Well nearly the same time. 21st actually). Opposite end of the country, opposite weather too. Much bleaker than it looks in the pic, blowing a howling gale and cold enough for the log burner to be lit in the cafe.. DSC0120...

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

Do we have a members-only route library where routes can be posted up in whatever format for other members to follow? If not maybe we should.

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

Did you record it all from start to finish Richard? That would be cool if you could let Simon have the exact route. I could ride it again in my sleep or trace it on a paper map with ease but trying to give written directions that are easy to follow for the whole route, some of which was on unmarked ...

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

I've got a feeling someone did. either Chr1s or Jug Inspector I think. I've got it all recorded in my head as they're all roads I ride regularly. Did try to draw the route on Google maps for other people's reference but the useless thing would never allow me to complete it no matter what I tried. I ...

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

Airfield was fine. Not overly busy for a sunny Sunday and we had no problem finding a table. Even Lulworth Cove wasn't that hectic. The car park was full, it always is, year-round. I confess I'd never ventured into the cafe before Sunday and I was slightly concerned it might be a congested rip-off b...

Will have to do something similar to the clutch lever now, and then all will be fine again, until the next thing breaks... :mrgreen:
My money's on water pump gasket, headstock bearings or clutch slave. All easy fixes but these are common areas where KTM like to keep you on your toes.

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

Yes, thanks Phil for the TEC services. An under-rated but vital job executed perfectly. We'll do it again when the boingy bits are working again on the Fut. Sorry about the bumps.. x_x

Re: Dorset Ride Sunday 20th May

Sorry we kept you waiting and apologies to Fozz. We were a little late getting to the airfield, probably because I never timed fuel stops when I rode it. Hope the rest of the ride made up for it. One of us could have posted a heads up on the forum when we stopped for fuel but not having a smart phon...
