Re: Off to Scotland

My general take on this (after much reading and listening, and a little recent experience): Well I think roughly speaking, outside of the Scottish (1/7 to 16/8) and England&Wales (15/7 – 2/9) school holidays you should be OK. Within these times then accessible and popular / trendy places (like Skye)...

Oh yeah, how could I forget.... Yes brilliant! These are kbg's favourite (top 3) sources of dry cured bacon when out and about: 1. Roberts TJ and Sons, on Bala high street. 2. Setchfield RP, on East Keswick high street, 3 miles from Wetherby off A1(M). 3. Mettricks, on Glossop high street in the Da...

Re: From one B-word to another

Normal B-words (on a family-friendly forum) would be things like barbecue, bockwürst, bratwürst and burgers. Maybe Bordeaux, Burgundy or Beaujolais if you're into a spot of red and maybe Barcelona, Berlin or Blackburn if you're talking tours. I think the best word I coined was Bongolianism (do a fo...

Re: Roof boxes

Others may want to comment on all this but those are my thoughts. 8) Thanks. Lots of food for thought there. But also a few weeks for me to ponder the roof vs back box options before the main Summer break. Re load on AFT electric motors – I understand you and have similar concerns, so will ponder a...

We use the New Dawn Conversion roof rack to hold the roof box but there are some others too.
Hmmmm...new to me...just looked that up....I very much like the look of that - both technically (load spreading / robustness) and aesthetically, and price looks decent too. Thanks.

From one B-word to another

I have been desperately waiting for the last 3 years for a new B-word to come along. The old one is tired and jaded :) Then like the proverbial bus a load of new ones come along at once. OK so, I was wondering, apart from Bill, Ben, and Bob, what are your other favorite Bongo-words on here? And am I...

Re: Roof boxes

Thanks for the extra tips. At 5' 5" I may need two ladders. :)
Funnily enough I need one of these for some attic decoration - so might kill two birds with one stone.
Scarring not nice - I will watch how I drop it.

Meet the Bongonauts is now 8pm to 9pm on Thursday. Do 'Apprentice Bongonauts' get met as well as 'Bongonauts'? :? Or do I just have to post like crazy in the run up? :) And what if they arrive later?

Hi sotal. Newbie on here browsing for roof box and bike carrier tips, in case I have some loose change when my van reappears from MOT-land in the coming week. Really good to have found your response in this thread which directly answers my roof box question (my AFT is factory fit with the 4 mounting...

Re: Off to Scotland

Cheap re-fueling – here is a list of handy refuelling stops for a thirsty bongo, that avoid you being caught short and ripped off. Including 3 stops that are each less than 500m off the M6 en-route to Scotland when travelling up/down via the west side of the country. I hate those motorway fuel price...
