Re: Ural's, I think

Must be something in the water as the last few months I have also been looking at Urals, I think Fortnine on YT did a video on them?.. Love the idea but in the crazy idea of ownership vs sensible head sadly sensible head wins by a decent amount. I would like to have one for a extended trip through t...

Re: Moto Guzzi V7 iii (Any experience)

Air-cooled, shaft drive had a lot going for it; less is more. Reminds me of the R80GS and look at how valued they have become now. Is it too fanciful to suggest that the V7 has picked up the mantle today. Ok, it's not an off-roader but in its own way it functions as a back to basics bike . I like t...

You can look at FB (public groups) without signing up.

Just click 'not now' when the annoying pop-up pops up.

Re: Moto Guzzi V7 iii (Any experience)

I've got a lot of time for Guzzis, and one huge advantage for you would be no chain to clean, lube and adjust. But if I were in the market for a retro, I'd have to find a really good reason not to buy a Royal Enfield 650. It's got all the charm of a Brit twin of the 1970, but without the horrors. I...

Moto Guzzi V7 iii (Any experience)

Well I am at a bit of a cross roads currently.. I may well be letting my R1100GS go as whilst I have done every servicing procedure one can imagine from rear drive rebuild to Clutch and everything in between I am starting to get serious issues with wrenching and arthritis in my fingers and serious b...

Re: Ducati Scrambler

For what it is worth and something to possibly consider with the Desert sled or atleast the one I looked at during the NEC show in 2018? (Changes could have been made) was that the exhaust was situated in a location so that your heel was on it when standing, and I was not the only one on the booth c...

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

Dunno really, I can quite understand the world travelling phenomenon, you get very much into the routine and I think I could have done another 3 weeks for sure 👍 London to Bangkok would be a awesome trip, not sure if doable with Covid and within 6 weeks mind you... I vaguely remember a couple trave...

Re: Brass Exhaust nuts, yes or no???

Thanks for the replies, I had another look and it seems I have enough space to drill a lockwire hole if I use the standard Honda Nuts as it seems whilst the M7 Brass are classed as "ready to ship" I have been estimated "weeks" for delivery which simply will not do in my first world haste. Indeed the...
