I have a thing for overbalancing on left kickers and invariably have to get off to start them if they do not go in the first couple of kicks.

I'm going to say it's a Honda XR400 with electric start.

I had a liquid-cooled Maico 250 stroker years ago that was a left-footer, used to have to lean against something to kick it over.

I like my Polaris Ranger Diesel. Top speed about 35 mph, carries 500 kg in the tray, all-wheel drive, and runs on the smell of an oily rag.

All great stuff - I wonder what percentage of posters could move let's say, 10 miles?

Physical preparation is essential, just like having procedures in place - lest being left with all the gear and no idea!

Much as I hate the idea of wearing out my legs to give my arse a ride I'd be stuck with a bicycle once I ran out of petrol as I've never learned to ride anything that can bite!
You'd get a lot of miles from a diesel Enfield Bullet ;-)

We walk a reasonable amount these days, probably 12-14 hours a week or more and it is hilly in places, walking 10 miles certainly would not bother me and with some kit, not sure I would be up for any more 30 mile jaunts, those days are well behind me.
