When we told everyone that I now had a Honda CBF500 and licence to go touring around the world, everyone just looked and laughed. However, I was determined to make this an adventure bike!
Another month another route! This time we start from Baldock Services and ride to Saffron Walden.
I am sure that many before me have been through this dilemma. I, for one, have been through it twice already. The first time, the mighty GS was the winner but the second time I ended up getting a R1200GS Adventure Rallye, my current bike, let me tell you why I chose it. I am sure that many before me have been through this dilemma.
Let's inaugurate the new 'Routes category' with a scenic route around the Cotswolds.
From now on, we will be uploading the routes to the Riding Time group in MyRoute-app. This will allow you to download them in any GPS compatible format, so you can upload it to your SatNav.
There are countless handbooks, YouTube videos and advanced training options on how to be a good motorbike rider, in fact, you even have to take a test before you are allowed free on the open road. Yet there is no such thing for a pillion. Virtually anyone can put a helmet on and sit on the back of a bike with no guidance, experience or training. The result can often be havoc and cause great problems for the rider.
