Re: KTM 990 what to look for?

I agree with Wonky. Personally you can normally tell if it's been well maintained and not just polished. Unless you're looking at my shonky looking 60,000 miler Allan, Looks like its been through a hedge backwards, in fact it has,forwards and upside down a fair few times as well. However it wants f...

Re: KTM 990 what to look for?

I bought a brand new one in 2014, best thing I ever did. ABS brakes are shit though and my oil pressure switched failed last year at 12000 miles. £406 or so to replace it ! You my friend had your pants down, that is an absolute max £50 job including parts for any dealer. And as Bob said £7 and half...

I'm guessing seeing as they don't mention overall weight anywhere that its gonna weigh a feck load more, and most of that in the worst place as unsprung weight.

It's not badly damaged at all, and if a few scratches dont bother you it would be an ok buy for someone. However if y...

Re: Morocco- General Advice Wanted!

Prepare yourself for the culture shock and head south as soon as possible. Personally did'nt find the north anything like as welcoming as the south. As others have said dont bother with the camping gear, lots of Auberges, possibly a bivvy bag just in case you get caught out and a small burner for a ...

Re: Yamaha T7

IMO extremely unlikely using the MT07 motor, it has a very deep wet sump hidden behind the odd black lower fairing thingy. if you look at side on pics you'd destroy the motor on the first rock step you tried to go over.

Re: crf1000 africa twins second hand

Strange there seem to be more post defending their own bikes than what the post was about and that is the new AT. Honda seem to have a habit of doing this when really there is no excuse. After all, all they needed to do was take all the best bits from the adv bikes that were out there, because they...
