Re: where to go this winter?

I can vouch for climate in Madeira.... Went a couple of winters ago. Unfortunately had torrential rain and some mud slips off the mountains. Nuff said.

Buying on forums

Just want to ask...I am looking at doing a deal for a bike on another forum. The seller is in Europe, I'm in the UK. I am not a long time member of that forum.
