Re: TET UK Status Reports

TRO. Note to the linesman. There is now a TRO on Jacobs Ladder heading out of Stoney Middleton towards Sheffield. There are currently no signs up so it's still usable until they are posted. As an alternative it might be worth taking the road into Calver, straight on onto the B6001 to Hassop. Right t...

Re: Newbie incompetence - sympathy and help requested

Overland Magazine have a link to a tailored insurance on their website. It's through Holidaysafe who are a well established company. I've used this policy for three years now. Seems fair.

Re: Rugged Android Phones

Just an update on this. I've used it on average once every 10 days on either the CCM (for trails etc) or the GS (mainly road work). Plus a two+ week trip to the Dolomites and Slovenia, the RallyMoto Wales 500, the TET from Yorkshire to Wales, various rides doing the Round Britain Rally, a car trip t...

Re: Sidecars

From memory I'd say everything from Holmfirth down to the Welsh borders should be fine. One narrow one in a village in Cheshire but you could miss that. However, there's a deep ford in Cheshire which you might want to avoid depending on the height of your air intake. A couple of weeks ago it was eas...

Re: Trailtech Temperature TTO Gauge 19mm

This also fits the CCM GP450, the BMW G450x plus others, like the Husky, which uses the Kymco engine.

Re: Smartphone & Mount for TET (and road navigation)

I use a Doogee S60 rugged phone. I've only had one occasion when it needed recharging "on the road". The chances of it raining at the same time are slim. I mount it on a relatively sheltered spot too. No issues.

Re: Galaxy Samsung Tab Active 2 as nav device

I've been using a Doogee S60 rugged android phone for approaching a year now. It has wireless charging capability but I've never used that. In fact I've only needed to charge it once when riding. The battery is good. Clear screen. No issues so far. I generally use LocusMaps Pro for trails and Kurvig...
