Re: Maxi-Scooter's - Go Big and Ride Big

I remember about 3 years ago riding my WR250R to Bulgaria (camping) and my route went down to Livorno on the west coast of Italy and then across the tops past Florence on the SS67 to north of Rimini. I didn't know it but this is a serious bikers road. I was doing my best to handle the twisties on th...

Re: Maxi-Scooter's - Go Big and Ride Big

I had my CB500 out for a couple of days this week -camping near Gt Yarmouth and touring up the coast to Cromer--but the point is that I have a Transalp which I'll keep--and also two trail bikes--the idea is to swap the CB500 for a silverwing as I really like the idea of a fast twist and go that will...

Re: Go Big and Ride Small

let me know what you think of it--I've been looking at them for a while and they tick a lot of boxes--and mechanically are pretty simple and are very similar to a DAF variomatic but with a decent twin OHC 600 twin.

Re: For Sale - KTM 690 Enduro R

a great bike properly cared for and serviced--ridden alongside it (mostly behind!)--you won't get better, especially when you look at what KTM want for a new one.

Re: Yuletide 2020

noted John--but put me down please if it goes ahead--I quite understand the situation--ideally we need a working vaccine and until then it will be iffy and solo trips and wild camping are the order of the day.
