Re: Excel bike show today

Ooo, little bikes... I've also stumbled across this, a Mash 500, basically a Shineray 400cc retro bike Werth a slightly silly name. [center][video width=425 height=344 type=youtube]f4JWd5bPURI[/video][/center] At a UK price of £3799 in reality I can't see why I'd want one over the Enfield, especiall...

Re: Honda reveal at the Osaka Motorcycle Show.....

Why would it need a 400 mile range? Just where are the vast majority of buyers going to be riding this? If you're a rider in the big developing markets of India and SE Asia, you're buying for looks because you're a mad keen Dakar fan. If you're in the western markets, how many of us are going to buy...

Re: CBT Review ....

When I suggested we should be like France and let 14 year olds ride 50's I was laughed off the forum. Everyone said there was no way they'd let their irresponsible 14 year old on a bike. Oddly, at the time, no one suggested they should have ingrained some responsibility into their kids before they t...

Re: Honda reveal at the Osaka Motorcycle Show.....

There's a bit more about it HERE , and a walk round on YouTube. [center][video width=425 height=344 type=youtube]Pwrk49kDCZ0[/video][/center] I like this a lot, not certain about the one piece screen come headlight protector, but I imagine it keeps costs down and if I was really worried I could alwa...

Re: Hi everybody from London

A PM? I'll just go reply, sorry I didn't notice I had one, a beer could be good, ace I'd definitely say get to the Ace if you can, you can marvel at the 125cc delights of my bike.

Re: Hammarhead Triumph and BMW

There's a bit of a weird story to Hammarhead, Dr James Loughead, the creator, and practising psychiatrist appears to have done a moonlit flit, leaving a fair number off irate customers, who'd paid their money but not received their bikes. Such a pity, still they were good while they lasted. [center]...

Re: Hi everybody from London

Hi from W10, I can't say I've got any experience of any of the bikes, but I thought I'd say hi to a fellow Londoner anyway. I'm intrigued by the 50:50 split in your riding, mind you London's road surfaces are about as broken up as green lanes. And while I'm here a quick plug for Moto Adventure Night...

Re: Is second hand bike market gone?

I think it's all down to cheap PCP finance. For a couple of grand you can buy a new bike, and pay £100 a month for three years. At the end you can walk away, pay the outstanding thousands or chop it in against more PCP on a new one. The vast majority of PCP financed bikes then end up back at the dea...
