Re: Honda

... their horns in for the duration of the depressed home and export markets and gone back to their traditional markets of supplying small capacity bikes to SE Asia, when you're in trouble you just want to be where you're comfortable.

Re: Honda

I think its all about money and the crisis that the Japanese economy is in. I was talking to a friend who works for Honda selling bikes to public services etc. He says it very hard to compete as not only do Honda not make bikes that fit the market very well but the factory don't support ...

Re: Josh Brookes BSB crash video

Sounds like it, so much for my "couple of years" - checking on it it was 2009, I remember the track covered in broken bikes on their side and an unrepentant Brookes afterwards. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yi2eKIDqAbw I had the misfortune to be on track with him at Snetterton ...

Re: Flat Battery ... my fault or theirs ?

... as a side note, if it was an AGM battery, I have recently been through 2 of these (one under warranty) within 3 months each. It turns out older bikes (even mine with its uprated reg/rec) don't work well with AGM batteries. Every bit of information I could find states that AGM batteries can be ...

Re: Multi bike

Normally they rank one bike the highest risk and that becomes the lead machine then the second bike is added at a reduced premium than if the two bikes were insured separately.

Not that many companys offer multi bike polices now but still worth shopping around and asking for discounts.

I think most dealers have to buy their demo bikes themselves so insurance comes under their own dealership policy and not the manufacturers.

Re: Test rides

Did they give any reason? Seems a bit high handed to start taking deposits. I can only think they've had bikes stolen or bits swapped over, but then someone's only going to turn up with a bent card or a rubber cheque book and pull the same stunt. Good way of driving away business imho.
