Yes, but I want something that I won't ride fully tilt everywhere. Also, the S is a thirsty old girl. She likes a drop of oil and petrol, and tyres aren't cheap either. I want something that's slow as an old dog and cheap to run. Big scooters are out because they are thirsty and expensive to servic...

: Cheers.Yeah I looking at something that does lots of easy miles and will hopefully retain my licence for a long time. Bailey. ?! Never ridden one but I'm sure they're not much slower in a straight line than a std s (at least 130mph) and with that big fairing you might not notice the speed as much...

I've got a tinted visor for my Sport Integral. I got it from the dealer in Ireland. He says they sell loads to the UK all the time. Can't remember the dealers name but look it up on the interweb (Dublin or Cork possibly?). It came almost next day. It was a bit expensive but it's been worth every pe...

I.ve fitted a set and done approx 1200 miles . I find that the bike changes direction quickly at speed although at lower speeds it seems to require more effort. (could be just me) . They have loads of side grip in dry or proper wet conditions and don't really want to spin up at all. I fitted them in...

Re: Bikes to cover 'all bases'

While we're talking about folk who can afford 150k to splash out on Bugattis, how about of imaginery self-pampering... How many bikes would it need to cover all aspects of our needs? Chatting to Rods the other day, we reckoned around 5. So, in that case what would those be? Only rules are that thes...

Belt's the way to go though - smooth, zero maintenance, long-lasting, quiet, clean (no lube needed) and lighter than a chain. In fact my perfect bike would be... . :) Joking aside , have they sorted the problems with stones etc punching holes in the belts and how awkward are the belts to fit ? Nige...

Re: Mirror, horn, maneuver

Anyone have issues when needing to use the horn in such an event that using the horn is appropriate? I often find myself angrily flashing an indicator and have yet to actually use the horn when I've needed it. :oops: I've been riding the BMW since the start of the year after about 4.5 years of the ...

Got around to fitting a set of conti roads (180rear) . The only thing I can say at the moment is that they feel different than z6's or d220's :oops: . The only remarkable thing at the moment is that after slithering around approx 200miles over the course of the w /end both tyres look unmarked :shock...
