I am a great believer of being able to fix your motorbike on the go and always carrying a toolkit. That said, I managed to break down right outside a garage after filling up on the Brighton Burn Up without a tool kit last month. The only toolkit they had was a little cheap s chips Rolson mini toolkit.
This thing has been a life saver. It got me and 2 other stranded bikers home that day, then got 2 out of 3 break downs back on the road at the London Distinguished Gentlemans Ride.
Mix combine it with a multi spanner and fold up cycle tool, and thats a good compact starter toolkit to get you home through minor breakdowns.
Went to the London Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride today. I totally failed to raise any funds for the cause. Heres hoping I helped raise at east a smidgen of awareness. Enough for one guy to check his balls before its to late would be enough.
I met the guys from Herald and saw a total of 12 Heralds throughout the day. 12 of the buggers! Only one Sinnis. Herald have gotten quite popular. Hats off to them.
Last week I headed to Brighton for the annual Brighton Burn Up. 50,000 or more motorcycles heading to one coastal town, good fun! I took the Sinnis Retrostar. The days break downs involved my rear brakes springs snapping. I shall of course be replacing them with Herald springs. *Sigh*
To the motorcycle followers, I did say I was going to write a follow up for Sinnis Retrostar review. However after reading and adding links to all my Sinnis posts last month, I cannot add anything of use, other than its had a few mechanical issues. Writing about continued issues with the bike just feels like flogging a dead horse. So my Sinnis Retrostar review ends with Part #9 – The Unfortunate End. I get all my parts from Herald. I will run it until it dies, then get myself a bike above 125cc, either Triumph, Enfield or Herald.
