My two pence worth is that ebikes are a godsend! Bought a foldable ebike for the missus and now we can go out together on one of the many dedicated trails around here in Buxton. She never really liked cycling before but loves her ebike and actually asks to go out cycling now, wow! :o We easily avera...
I've had a couple of Guzzis in the past, great bikes with soul, loved them. Think I'll try and have a test ride myself. Could this bike finally solve my "get rid of four bikes and only have one" dilemma? What puts me off striaght away is the compulerised technology which, in my view, is totally unne...
Agree with most on this page. It's both for me but gotta say that the last few trips with a small group was a total disappointment cos on each trip there was someone new who was so slooooooooooooow! Each time I vowed not to do it again but it keeps happening. Might be doing a trip down to France whi...

Surprising very little in the way of actual recommendations on this post. I've got two large top boxes for my XF650 and VX800 but they aren't mega mega large. I manage to fit my 2 man tent (if you're VERY good friends lol!), 3 season sleeping bag, foam pillow, sleeping mat (essential!) and various o...

Great write up, many thanks for that! Norway sounds absolutely stunning and has to be on my bucket list methinks.
