Re: Hello from the other half

When you say 'theory' surely you don't mean the online test thingy, Yup, she was close each time but kept getting tripped up by the questions as they are tricky, sometimes three of the four options seem plausible..... and I have no idea why first aid is part of a driving test as it is not a legal r...

Re: Spirited ride to Boscastle Saturday 24th

Makes sense but sometimes you feel pulled in two directions, but yes. Keep an eye on your rear,. always a good idea.

Re: XR1000 / Tiger 800

Oh, and look into what people on the forums are doing about screen mods. I can almost guarantee that the standard screen will not work well. It'll either buffet your head around and/or just be very noisy with the wind blast. It took a while to get both my Vstrom and now my 1190 to work well as I hav...

Re: XR1000 / Tiger 800

I think the big V-twins are very marmite. If you're more use to revy bikes then the triples or IL4's will likely suit you better.

Re: Busa misfire

True, but there have been cases where people have taken plugs out and found bits missing. Sparkplugs are pretty robust things though so I guess you're expecting they'll outlast the engine, or maybe last another 20,000 or so miles. :)): I've never understood why motorcycles supposedly "need" new spar...

New rider poses a serious threat

Just a warning that we have newbie hitting the streets on a 700. I escorted the mrs to Taunton test centre today, and as a reward had to return home on a 125. :? Here is Claire on her MT-07 minus L plates, the streets are no longer safe, you have been warned. :mrgreen: https://live.staticflickr.com/...
