Re: Bikers ain't what they used to be.

I agree, once stopped for a power ranger on an R1, offered him my puncture repair kit and tyre pump. Refused and said the Rac are coming in 90 mins :shock: so I tossed him my spare apple and said enjoy the wait :mrgreen: His face was priceless If i was just out for a bimble on my Himalayan (tubed t...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I don't think anyone knows at the minute other than that it was a rental bike. Good point about lack of any other damage. I can't say I'm personally fussed by it. Maybe I should be. But my thought is that until it starts happening to one owner bikes with known usage (outside of India) then I'm not ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I managed to get a demo on the Himalayan at the festival, I was very impressed. Only getting one lap around the trail I'm very interested in taking a road demo from somewhere. One could well replace my shagged CRF250 for the daily commute when it finally gives up. I was genuinely surprised at how w...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Finally got a test ride yesterday on the Himalayan at Bolton Motorcycles. Impressions? Well, I came back feeling that this was a really decent bike. Obviously the power wasn't going to tear your arms out but it was never meant to. Handling was good, suspension worked well enough with the potholes, ...

Re: klim

I had the Badlands at one time and yes it was stiff at first but they do soften. I parted company with it because in the end it was too small for me as i got the medium due to the sleeves on the large being too long; It was a mistake. I have had the Klim Overland since about 2015 now and love it. St...

Re: Klim gloves?

I like Klim gear and did have a pair of the Klim summer gloves until i lost one in Alaska.
Anyway, i use the BMW Winter Pro gloves (on my second pair as i lost one of them in Alaska too, don't ask) and a finer glove, IMO you wont get.
