Re: 2022 KLR 650

It’s a shame though isn’t it . SWM anyone? What's a shame? It will be a tough, ultra reliable travel bike. You don't see many (or even any?) SMW's in that role 🙂 Nothing wrong with SWM's. the RS650 and SD models make great travel bikes - at a sensible weight & cost. SWM's weakness is in distrib...

Re: 2022 KLR 650

Here we go again... It's 220 kgs for god's sake! It's a single cylinder 650! Why on earth is it anything over 160kgs? That's like going everywhere with two sacks of cement on board, but nothing to build. The Suzuki DR650 was 150kgs 30 years ago ! The current Yamaha T700 is lighter than this KLR and...

Re: EU. In or out?

I wonder if Johnston, Gove and Davis etc will get a similar write up in the history books? Good question; and if they do, will the era be given a descriptive - similar to "the Reformation" or " Edwardian". Let's have some suggestions - I'll start: "The Retardation"; &q...

Re: Uk import duty shocker!!

Just had an Ebay purchase arrive from France. It had new additional French customs documents attached - about 6 !!! :shock: :shock: :roll: On this occasion no duty was levied, neither did the Seller charge me for the extra paperwork, he probably didn't realise. :D However, clearly acres of Finland a...

Re: EU. In or out?

All very interesting and shows how tumultuous those times were. If the other invasion hadn't taken place, would William have been defeated? Probably, IIRC Harold had to double time his battle weary men from the North to the South to face Wiliam. It was far from ideal. Correct. The Northumbrian Prin...

Re: EU. In or out?

I can only paint a picture from where I stand , sounds like it should be attributed to someone famous...maybe I will be some day. Everything in history is selective, ever been to the Tapestry in Bayeux? They have a very different opinion on 1066 to the English. Yep, seen the tapestry in Bayeux. A f...

Re: EU. In or out?

My view on the Union is changing with time because I'm so sick of carping Scots. Scotland historically has always attempted to shaft England and allies itself with France. Good, we'll keep on carping then... Ask yourself why Scotland has sided with France against England, could it be due to the inv...

Re: EU. In or out?

I'm so sick of carping Scots. Scotland historically has always attempted to shaft England and allies itself with France. Let's have a full UK vote about letting Scotland go it's own way. England will be financially better off and we can ban haggis and bloody bagpipes So to get things straight you w...

Re: EU. In or out?

my point is, the vote you cast will either go on to win or lose, thats life,as in thats democracy carried out, thats life as in move on or keep going round and round, dave. I get that Dave, however when decisions as important as Brexit and Independence have been influenced by a myriad of lies and d...
