Re: Crf1000 servicing costs!

Was a bit shocked yesterday as I went into the Honda dealers where I bought my bike some 10 months ago and booked my 16k service. All booked in ok, but I'm now having 2nd thoughts I can do the service myself, but wanted to retain the 1 years warranty left on the bike. I was shocked when the guy tol...

Re: EU. In or out?

I am a remainer, but the vote was leave, so leave is what we must do. However, if the deal on the table is so shockingly shit, so badly put together that it's worse than actually staying, what then?

Re: idc or international driving permit info

Sorry but why is this even a debate? its pure speculation. Wait and see what happens, there's no way we'll need IDC/IDP. All this is just bollocks scaremongering. Work with what you know as FACT

Re: Wuthering Height

A day of getting on and off to open and close gates etc on a taller bike is knackering. One of the most useful skills there is is to learn how to get on and get off a moving bike so as you approach the bike you just step off. Liekwise on the other side of the gate, left foot on the peg, clutch out ...

Lots of people cry for lowering links nad shorter suspension when what they actually need is better riding ability and confidence. I have another mate who rides a 400 exc as stock and he is 5'3. He just sh...

Re: 790 Adv at Fowlers

All this suspension lowering business, you're reducing its effectiveness. Just get a lower seat. Also, the stock suspension will be fine for that use, don't overthink it. If you then find that because you're a god-like rider you reach its limits, look at an aftermarket solution.

Re: Nikwax tent vs Fabrsil Gold?

whatever happened to that guy?

Re: Rallying

Bob do yourself a favour and buy new kit. For the difference in price, its not worth buggering about. Go straight to https://www.f2r.pt/

Get the RB750, a normal tripmeter, roadbook plate and bar mount. Small fusebox from an auto elec place, job done.

Re: French 80kmh limits
