Re: New York in late September - any pointers?

The Intrepid Air and Space Museum is great (if you like that sort of thing!)

Re: Fully Laden

Here is my old Yamaha RD350R. I was just about to set off for the IOM TT, way back in 1997!

It was slightly 'wheelie' happy with that rucksack on the back if I recall!

Re: Lovely Classic BMW

I have MOT'ed my old airhead this week so have been using her to commute to work and back. She has nearly 70k miles and her previous owner had taken her all over Europe.

Re: Welsh Weekend 2017 version 2

Re: Naked Fun

I have an '05 R1150R, which I commute on Monday-Friday and do around 50 miles a day on. It handles Motorway, A-roads and B-roads like a charm and is unusual enough to still get the looks. My bike doesn't have ABS so is as simple as it comes and has enough power to be fun, the only thing I don't like...
