Re: Keis Heated Kit Warranty

That's worth knowing, the cable on my Keis jacket has failed.

Re: KTM 990 what to look for?

As someone who's owned one for the last five years, here's my observations: Yes they drink fuel (150 miles to the light... if you're lucky, worst i ever got was 115 when green laning) but who cares.... they're fun! The side stand bolts to the engine, a potential for major damage, fixed mine with a C...

Re: Is there such a thing as a perfect adventure tyre

On my 990 Adventure I've used Mitas E07s (on it at present), Mitas E10 (Rear), Mefo Super Explorer (Rear), Pirelli MT21 (front) and TXC 80 (Front & Rear). The E07s are a great all rounder in my opinion, grip well on the road wet or dry, great on fire roads but fairly hopeless in mud. E10 was a great...

Re: Mt21 on a 990 adv

A couple of years back it did 250 motorway miles up to the lakes, a days greenlaning up there, the Piel Island Rally then back on A roads via the Trough of Bowland and Peak District.... great tyre! This is me on the beach byway at Askam...

Re: The perfect compromise ADV bike

I had an F800GS and yes they do get a bit "floaty" on the front end, never a huge problem though. More worrying was the amount of fragile looking plastic, mine was on a PCP so I fitted Metal Mule crash bars and Bark Busters but to be honest I always shied away from anything too technical. Might have...
