Sorry to hear of your problems. As an ex-motorcycle shop manager I'd advise caution before turning a hobby into an occupation. Pay is often poor, management is often poorer. If I were to do it again, I'd make sure I owned the shop.
Good luck.

Some bike prices have gone mad recently. I've been trying to buy an early eighties Laverda for months and have seen bikes which would have been 2500 2 years ago changing hands for 5k plus and this is not for exotica. Another bubble which is bound to burst one day.

hi streettriple, I just bumped my bike to the top of the bits'n'bobs for sale thread. Its worth a look. I'm working abroad until 12/12 but can answer emails or pm's. Can safely say that my bike is loads better than the one above, no damage and little corrosion on engine. Was bought as an Approved BM...

2 possible solutions. The BMW system requires a single hole to be made in the rear bodywwork about the size of a 5p. The 2 alloy lugs which screw thru the bodywork and into the luggage subframe are easily removable and the hole can be plugged using a small plastic cap. On a dark bike this would be v...

Do I want a?

Been put in touch with someone who wants to offload an 03 Duke 749 Mono with 10k on it. BUT it has no history, a couple of services have been carried out up to 5k, then nowt. Now, the owner is realistic and is talking about 2500 to get shot, which seems cheap. The bike is clean and runs well. Does a...

I had the gold RS 30 years ago, went round Europe twice on it. By far and away the most comfortable sport tourer I ever owned. But after several years of 1100's and 1200's I wonder if it would feel a bit tame today? Nice collection. Slightly green....

We get this for our motorhome each year. Quite a few people recommend ADACplus which is the German equiv of the RAC. You don't have to be German or a member and they have an English website https://www.adac.de/mitgliedschaft_leistungen/mitgliedschaftstarife/membership/become_plus_member/default.asp?...

I think I have spent enough on this one, still trying to make up my mind if its worth chopping the 12 for an HP2, but prices need to fall a bit first.
