Himalayan vs KTM 390 Adventure vs 310 GS vs CRF 250 Rally

Post by nathanm » Wed Oct 21, 2020 10:50 pm

For anyone considering any of those four bikes I've used Covid and the bounce back loans to add them to my fleet down here in North Devon, the idea being that people can ride them back to back on a day's guided ride, taking in some gentle green lanes on route.

I've got some dates coming up in the next few weeks.

Hope it's of interest

That's a great idea Nathan, and good luck with the new venture.

Think it's s really good idea. Real Shane I'm so far away. Covid rules. Ect.. Gonna ask nethen /dave if he fancys a day. In the spring. Little trip and summet different at the end. Bought a t7 recently but. I'm deffo still in the small bike club. Prefer them off the beaten track. Pop a postie in for laughs. Keep well.

That's a great idea and really good value for money + you get to discuss the pros and cons with other riders.

Thanks Snaf. Yes to be honest one of the surprise plus points is the chatting the riders do throughout the day about their thoughts on the bikes. Everyone has a different opinion about them all, that's for sure.

That's a bloody good idea. If you're tossing up between any of these bikes, £150 for a few hours of chopping and changing is worth every penny.

Now please can you offer a Ducati Superleggera, MV Brutale Serie Oro and a Kawasaki H2 for a day at the Nurburgring? Ta.

Great idea - my bro-in-law is with you imminently. Even though I've got my own little 'fleet', I'd still love to have a day out with you... except you're 3.5 hours away and I'm having radiotherapy :(
Perhaps you could take them on tour to Mid-Wales and do days there ???

Ha, yeah I'm slowly building the fleet until I get the full pack of exotica! Might take me a while.

I also have the fleet of posties for people to ride...

And Phil, yeah I looked at moving the bikes around to different locations but to be honest it just doubles the price unless you could base yourself somewhere for a few weeks and right now I've got a young family to be closer to home for. Anyway, don't be such a jessy. 3.5 hours.... pfft.

Superb Idea Nathan If I do say so myself. Be invaluable for people looking at those bikes.

This is an excellent idea - and good choice of bikes. Good luck with it.
