  1. I have booked the tunnel for the return trip in October, our outward journey is going to be Portsmouth to St. Malo, hopefully. I am holding on for the September trip.
  2. September might be possible as both the English and French governments are making the right noises as long as you have both doses of the vaccine, but it's still fingers crossed. I have a trip planned for October to France and this is looking more likely.
  3. Sygic is OK but it does have some strange routing choices, if your phone is your chosen unit then give the Tomtom App a go.
  4. If the roads are going to be slippery, it will 9 times out of 10 be on a roundabout. Learn and move on.
  5. As this topic has been extensively coved in the past many times, we have already been very helpful. A search is all that is required.
  6. I guess people just like talking about sat navs.
  7. This is a bit of an old chestnut, the subject has been covered ad nauseam. Try a forum search. The short answer is, both.
  8. Yes, I ordered this morning. It takes about a weeks or so but I can wait.
  9. I have been in touch with HEL and Venhill and they both want me to strip the brake lines and send them off to them so they can make copies. I am not prepared to go to those lengths at the moment. Goodridge have the patterns but are experiencing long delays due to import and staff problems. Hey ho.
  10. I recently took the FJR into my local dealer (Padgetts in Batley) for a brake switch recall. I have only taken my bike to Padgetts twice and both time it came out with something wrong with it, I'm not casting aspersions it's just a statement of fact. So this time I rode home from the recall work and parked the bike in the garage and didn't look at it for a week or so. When I did go into the garage I had a brake fluid leak which I tracked down to the right front brake pipe. I thought it would be a good time to upgrade the whole system to braided lines. I ordered a whole kit from Goodridge, however they are having some supply problems so I am thinking of ditching this idea and just replacing the leaky hose with an OEM one, this is where the crazy pricing comes in. The front brake pipe is one piece for both sides joined to an ABS block. To buy this part from Fowlers is £184.54 inc VAT + delivery at £5.50 to give a grand total of £190.04. However, there is an alternative, buy from America. If I go to Partshark I can get the same OEM part with the same part number as here in the UK for $53.48 (£38.63) + delivery $67.75 (£48.95) for a grand total of $121.23 (£87.55) WTF
  11. I have a battery compressor and the problem is remembering to keep it charged so I use an AA mini compressor which I plug into my battery pigtail. Saves on memory
  12. They are not the compounds I linked, buy hey it's your project. The wet and dry is OK
