    Quick racks

    As damper man says - dont go for a heavy duty (for escort rallying) quick rack, as I too found it very stiff. Dave
  2. Looks a good route with a mix of fast, and twisty roads, hopefully something to suit everyone. (Have stayed on the Glen Orchy road a few times in the camper). Dave.
  3. Good suggestion - then maybe an option to take the ferry to Tarbert (£11 p/ car, runs every hour), and back up via Lochgilphead, Kilmartin / loch Awe, or the fantastic (but much longer) A816 to Oban (Total 160 miles) .
  4. Thanks Rab for the info, hopefully it will be a good turnout. Good to catch up at the xmas dinner, cheers Dave
  5. Ditto - The 12v Cello ones are good, and if its wall mounted, its important that the up/down viewing angle is OK, which the Cello ones seem to be. Agree the sound is tinny - but I wired the h/phone output into the van's stereo system. Dave.
  6. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7pridCD8Ps&list=PLRZC7vLm2HSHS66V5foDRugJSRIUGKZIo Good winter feelgood watching, and stunning scenery. Quite inspirational.
  7. I did Gatescarth pass (one of the most extreme byways in the lakes) last weekend in my series 1 - very very rough, but made it OK. The fact that S1's only weigh 1.25 Ton as opposed to the modern heavyweights certainly helps. Picture is from last Saturday on the very tame descent!
  8. You have to be a Land Rover nut, but the North coast 500 in a day is impressive (In series 1 land rovers!) I struggle to do just 300 a day in mine... If you like that one - have a look at his Monte Carlo or bust vids (even if only for the soundtrack).
  9. Q928 Spotted at the Kelpies today - looking good!! Dave
  10. Great day - thanks Brad and Diane for the route navigation, and to Brian for your company - some new roads for me today. The weather was certainly kind for us . Thanks again, Cheers, Dave.
  11. Hope to join you tomorrow, the Talla road is great (often get quite a few cyclists on it though). If you wanted to head SW, into D&G, this is a run I put on a year ago. https://www.plotaroute.com/route/419419 Maybe a bit long for tomorrow, but maybe discuss the options at abington. Cheers, Dave.
  12. Made me laugh this morning - and I am a cyclist (but not the lycra clad variety)! Enjoy.
  13. Halfords advanced socket set - £80 down to £66 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Halfords-Advanced-120-Piece-Socket-Set-Ratchet-Spanner-Tool-Box-/191411142395?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10
  14. Thanks Chris, see: https://pages.ebay.co.uk/coupons/2018/piggybank.html/
