Re: Last night I dreamt

Really bizarre dream last night. Myself, Kwacky, Frankie and Nutz had gone to the IOM on bikes but on a sailing ship. We didn't stay in a hotel but in a dormitory with other people. One of the people staying there was a stunning looking woman dressed like the Scottish ...

... tourer, I find it quite flickable and it claims a 200 mile tank range, I believe that. Funnily enough 2 of my friends who currently own Adventure bikes are both looking very closely at the new Suzuki GSX-S1000GT.

Re: The new era of sports tourers?

... farm tracks. The only reason I sold it was because of my shoulder. But I openly admit I was never going to go fully off road with it. Adventure bikes aren't the easiest to ride. The Honda was very tall, heavy and had a 21 inch front wheel. Now I'm happy to ride anything. I had some great days ...

Moved the bikes around and put the MV at the back of the garage. Then threw a cover over it. I can't see me riding it again until spring. I might get it out before the salt hits the road.

It did very well setting a decent pace and dispatching slow cars with ease when the chimp on it's back remembered that 6th is not this bikes ideal overtaking gear, 3rd or 4th work way better (angel) https://i.imgur.com/AQlGSG0.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1yTAdmo.jpg I was pleasantly surprised ...

Re: 2020 MV Agusta Brutale RR SCS

Fast Bikes have taken an identical bike to mine out for a test ride. We're basically agree about these bikes. They slag off the old style dash but the new bikes have a good sized TFT instead of the old LCD looking dash I've ...

Re: Triumph Speed Triple RR

I like that a lot., but the white doesn't work for me.... that's just white bikes in general though.
Looks like a great blend of naked, retro-modern and just plain modern sportbike.

Three thumbs up! (y) (y) (y)

Re: Getting the Mrs on the Back

Re: Test rode a BMW F900XR

I was a little bit disappointed with it. They're decent bikes but I found it a bit flat and not very engaging. I thought it was nice, it seems to have more character (but less power) than the Sprint but it wont have anywhere near the character of an ...
