Thanks very much! We do try to improve - people that weren't in on the history and the true order will be a little confused in the future when they watch in numerical order and see the change out of order. If that makes any sense at all...

I'm especially please though that you feel you can watch them again and again - brilliant - that's what we were hoping for!

Looking forward to hearing your travel tales soon...

Tire Changing DVD

Well the DVD Tire Changing is the 6th, of the Achievable Dream Series.

Another Great informative DVD this is the 'Odd 1 out' (for now lol),
all the other in the Achievable Dream series are packed jam full of a wide selection of info this one is just on tire changing, & does as it says on the dvd.
As a veteran rider of over 20 years, (still a novice to some hehe), I found this DVD to be to the same high quality and standard of production of the others.

The DVD it'self is superb with views hints tips how to do this 1 simple job change a tire, but in reality how many times have you changed a tire?

I would urge you all to go out and buy this DVD if nothing else, or why not buy the full set for birthday or Christmas.

thank you Grant & Susan another great DVD

for the record I have no connection with HU other than on the forum & Facebook.

Thanks for that Selous! With this DVD indeed the 'odd one out' we've been wondering how it would be received, so it's great to hear you like it - that's one person anyway!

Download from the net.

Hi
Have you thought about making it possible to download DVD,s directly from the net. It is more environmentally friendly. Also most travelers are not going to carry around DVD,s but most carry laptops or smart phones.
Just a thought.
Fantastic website.
Thanks
Nick

Absolutely! We'd love to do that, unfortunately the "educate us" process and time required is out of reach at the moment! We have way too much else to do.

If someone REALLY knows all there is to know about this, contact us please!

Probably next winter without expert assistance.
