Re: Winter storage

I'd suggest putting a dust sheet over.

I've seen a few bike manuals that say to take the plugs out and put a little oil in each cylinder over the winter thought I've never done that.

Re: Possible Cotswolds Run and lunch (Sun 21 / 10)

Went to "The Haven" cafe near Salisbury, apparently they do bike nights. A few bikes there and good food too. Then went to Amebury to see the Stones. Quite a few bikes there with the Red Lion seeming to be a good destination. There's an S bend right next to it and it was good to see the bikes (and a...

Re: Going up Porlock hill two up

Actually imho the suspension can have an effect at slow speed. More the front forks than the rear. If I change between neutral and slight acceleration there's fair bit of fork movement. Think that's due to the back sitting to far down as the stndars rear shock isn't really first for purpose on the F...

Re: Going up Porlock hill two up

Hi All. I'm fine going down Porlock hill on my fjr 2 up. However I only just made it around uphill solo. Going up hill I went to the middle of the road just before turning in but I still ended up on the other side and it was too uncomfortable for me. Wtf am I doing wrong? Taking it too fast? The tr...
