    Given the state the tank was in before hand i'm bloody impressed they managed to fix it by going thru the fuel tap mounting hole, stunning work!.

    Does anyone watch "The workshop" channel? He's a proper abrasive **** but seems to know what he's on about and makes me laugh.

    I sorely miss the sound on my Tuono 1100 Factory, but I miss little else for road riding.

    I can only take so much of him, but his ongoing feud with Delboy's Garage was amusing. The latter is clearly trying to make a career out of YouTube, or at least a meaningful income. The Workshop seems to enjoy nothing more than trolling what he sees as incompetence and dangerous incompetence across YouTube. If he was more measured and polished then doubtless he'd lose some of his audience but he'd actually have a great informative channel.

    Yeah I started watching him back when his channel was called Pony Power. He may be a bit much for some but I think his no ******** attitude is awesome.

    I watched him for a bit but his videos started to get annoying. He presents himself as an oracle but many of his videos feel like he’s googled the topic then done a video afterwards.

    I expect there's a fair amount of Google research done, as I get the feeling he's not a journo - so probably has to rely on information out on the internet. He seems (to me) to have a grasp of physics and engineering though - maybe that's his day job? But he seems to explain things well enough, though no one can really be an oracle over everything imo.

    I'm flabbergasted by the **** that Brock bloke is coming out with though :o

    Rode in similar conditions, would never choose to ride in them again.

    Unless mine or someone else’s life depended on it, I wouldn’t ride a bike in that weather.

    Tbh since I live in that area I was a bit surprised to see if they'd really do it... If you get real lucky with weather it's doable but generally, seemed a bit silly, glad no one got hurt.

    Yeah but you fall off when the road conditions are perfect ;)

    Careful there @Kreeeee :D

    tbf I can't say much, I've barely ridden and managed to send myself flying off the bike at about 2mph. :p

    I've ridden in bad weather - going over (or trying to) Col d'Aubisque in May was as bad as it got. But when snow is settling that fast, at the end of a long cold day, I'd rather not be on a bike.
