You have a choice. Either integrated and not great heat or 3rd party and not integrated but works really well - Oxford & others.

Hi Are these still availble?

 and told me that 6 rooms are booked and just one was cancelled.

Well I have cancelled two rooms, for me and Andrew Morgan, so presumably we weren't included in the group booking?  At least I have a confirmation they are cancelled free of charge  :002:

The 800 and 1200 in my opinion are better than the 900, Have not taken any temperature readings so can't tell you if they are actually lower rated hand grips. I guess if the ambient temp is colder then they might not feel as warm.

Just had the latest BMF email and there is an article (though published a month ago) that I thought may be of some help :027: to those planning riding abroad later this year. For me the medical side of holiday insurance would definitely be an item to ensure a solid policy particularly regarding pre-existing medical conditions.

Me too, the original fly lead to the battery was  faulty so I just spliced a hella plug on the end as a temporarary fix two years ago!!
I had upgraded my front suspension on my 2016 XRX 800 with Andreani fork cartridges which made a huge difference to the ride of the bike - rear shock was standard and ride was good with rear seeming pretty well controlled but wondered if it could be improved with a Nitron rear shock - after reading into it on this forum, I decided to give it a go and bought an R1 shock 2nd hand on this forum.
I contacted Nitron about whether the spring was suitable for my weight of 69kg in kit (I had the details of the fitted spring from previous owner - a 600lb one) and they advised a 550lb spring, which I then bought
My local suspension expert from SWB - fitted the new spring and changed the shock, setting up sag and damping for me - I was pleasantly suprised with the result and rear is now planted and I have the smooth compliant suspension the bike deserves - now well pleased with the ride and handling of the bike on our sometimes not so great road surfaces!
PS I highly recommend SWB suspension if you are in SE Wales area he has a great setup and does suspension setup etc for road, racing and offroad bikes too - this guy really knows his stuff
