    Stuff to watch over the winter.

    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!

    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).
  4. Q928 Spotted at the Kelpies today - looking good!! Dave
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Made me laugh this morning - and I am a cyclist (but not the lycra clad variety)! Enjoy.

    Front number plates

    I mount my No plate with a couple of fairly soft rubber bobbins (bit like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTI-VIBRATION-RUBBER-BOBBIN-MOUNT-10x10-M4-MALE-6mm-MALE-6mm-45A/202322717794?hash=item2f1b5fac62:g:N5gAAOSwCpRbCPT8) This allows the plate to fold underneath then spring back if you do hit a speedbump, or front kerb, and stops you cracking the plate, or worse, pulling a chunk out of the nosecone. Dave.
  11. Brad, As it seems we may be down to only 4 cars, I agree its probably best to postpone till next year, to ensure a decent turn out to justify all the time and effort you have both put in. Like Brian, I have also been heavily involved in road rallies many years ago, and its the navigational aspect that appeals. Dave. (PS - The Tibbie Shiels Inn is closed down sadly).

    MOT passed but slight play in steering rack

    I couldnt agree more with Damper Man - I did the same and fitted a HD quick rack, and even after a few 1000 miles, its still relatively stiff and doesnt self centre like I think it should. Sorry this doesnt help answer the OP question though...! Dave.
  13. Brad, Looks like my plans are changing, and I should be able to make it now, so can you put me down for this please. After all the effort you have put in to this, hopefully there will be a good turnout. Thanks, Dave.
  14. Sorry to have to miss out on Applecross this year, but hope you all have a great time, the forecast looks pretty good. Try and get a discount for quantity on the glenelg ferry again! Hope to be back with you next year. Dave.
