Have fitted new throttle cable, now almost always returns to idle of its own accord, so as long as i don't need to stop too often I'll be fine.

Slightly more worried about my clutch cable making sparks, but I'm sure lots of electrical tape around the heated grip cables with solve that one

see you at the weekend!

I'm based in and around the North East and the weather has been getting milder but i think the forecast is for the weather to get worse after all it is November.

Thumbs down Tan Hill... maybe next time!

Hi All,

It doesn't look like Chris & I will be making it to Tan Hill this weekend as I've been off work since Wednesday and doesn't look like I'll be back at work tomorrow either. Chris pointed out that after 3 days off work heading off on Motorbikes in the freezing gale force winds that we've been having probably isn't the best idea in the world!!! He's probably right!

So it looks like it will have to be the next one!

All that do get there, have a great time,

Beej (& Chris)

I've got a problem with snot too! It's streaming out of me and that's in the house. I'm going to brave it though so I'd better fit a bib for the ride up. We all know how bad it can be once on the move. Hopefully it'll be blown away by the time I get to Tan Hill. I plan to get there in the daylight tomorrow, see you all there.

I'll be there, either latish on Fri, or earlyish on Sat, not sure how long it is going to take me so I can't get any more accurate than that!

AA says it is 195 miles via main roads, 245 back roads. If I manage to make a steady 40 mph and don't eat, piss or smoke, or breakdown, or get lost, I estimate the trip will take six hours. Bugger me.

I'll be there some time on Tuesday morning then.

Looking forward to it.

You can scratch one off of your list, the other one I was bringing is scared of all the trolls and rain oop north so he has cried away.
