Re: Odd conversation with biker

... about the natural progression from 125s to 400s, 600s then 1000s. It made sense as riding a bike is a bit dangerous at times and the old 1 litre bikes used to love a highside.

Odd conversation with biker

I wasn't really sure where to put this but I had to tell you guys about a really odd conversation I had about bikes with a girl who was in my office building. I went down to reception to pick up some post and noticed a girl sitting there in bike clobber, Guy Martin lid, so I was ...

Re: Thailand Motogp

The best part about it all was them in parc ferme afterwards joking and hugging, proper sportsmanship and as above Huge respect to one another who both just love riding bikes.

Too many riders don't have that attitude when they should

... and comfortable. It's a very polished bike. I wouldn't take one off road though. I know people do, but it's more road orientated than the other bikes mentioned. The 1090 is a workhorse, a lot like the Versys. There's not much to it, just a decent engine and the ability to take a daily beating. ...

Re: Front wheel noise

I do believe that the motto at the Kawasaki factory is "Go in dry"

I take it bearings going this soon isn't a warranty issue? I've never had an issue with any of my previous bikes.

Re: Audi e-tron - the future

They will take off but not yet. We need the tech to be affordable for the masses £70k isn't affordable. It's the masses that put in the money. As long as they dont ruin bikes until I'm dead I'm all for it!
