Re: Naked twins, triples or inline 4s...

+1 for the SD being roomy. I've smashed my knee a couple of times & found the SD really comfy (knee-wise). Did try a friends Z1000 but found the footrest was slightly less rear-set & was cramped for me. Also consider the FZ1 N (naked) or Fazer, I gave mine a little more room by swapping the rubber t...

Re: taking an enforced break.

Haven’t been on here for a day or so, only just seen this.

Hope you recover as soon as expected, let me know if you want any reading material- working in Redruth now so can drop anything in after work.

If you can still work a kettle can swing round one evening.

Lovely 4ride you have there. How heavy is it?

85kg I think. Bit short & snappy in the snow.

Had to do an absolutely (not) necessary journey when I got home. 1:6 hill on my road, no way was the car going anywhere!

Re: ACU and bike sport

ACU - Almighty Cock Up. As above, the ACU is a bureaucratic mess who seem to make anything as difficult as possible to keep themselves in a job. Just look at any AMCA event and you will see lower entry fees, better organisation and support with true bike events for riders feel. You can tell who's be...

Re: Fancy France in May

If you're heading down the West coast, look at the D785 from Morlaix to Quimper - nice start to the journey, like Dartmoor without speed limits & with sunshine. Cuts off the corner somewhat too. Even worth a detour if coming back early, head to Brest at Rennes & pick up the D785 again. https://thumb...

Also understand Tesco are doing GT85 for £2.25 per 400ml tin.


And I thought I was doing well getting a box of a dozen for £30 via a trade contact.

Re: Reasonable multibike insurance

Kwacky - what's the other bike you have, see you have a 650 Versys but what's the other? There's not many multi-bike insurers in the market and some have very wierd 'pillion use' restrictions (eg 1st Gen Busa OK, 2nd Gen not OK!) - my money's on this being the reason they cancelled. It may be a case...

Re: Doomed

Is there a mechanical method of dis-arming the alarm like on Data-Tool:

Ignition on, indicators flash 'x' number of times, ign off, ign back on 'x' flashes, ign off etc.

Presuming you know your special flash number code - but if never set, may be able to use default code.

Re: Who remembers Andy Ibbott?

Like Moose said, I remember him from magazines & the CSS.

I'm just amazed he's not been snapped up within the motorcycle industry, either as a coach or mentor in something like Talan Skeels-Piggins project or even in the sales/manufacturer side - feel he has so much experience going to waste.

Re: Reasonable multibike insurance

With them being quite different bikes, probably best to insure them separately. Virago using the NCB, see if the NCB can be mirrored on the SYM. With the SYM being Chinese and if it doesn't have a great value, consider going Third Party Only - a lot of insurers will only give TPO cover on Chinese bi...
