Suggestions for a budget middleweight tourer

I'm having a shuffle around with my vehicle situation, because I have 3 bikes and 1 car and I need 2 cars, so I must say goodbye to my BMW F800GS and downgrade to something a bit cheaper, I've been looking at Kawasaki Versys or the Honda CBF600. The bike will be used for commuting, touring and winte...

I'm currently on a little 2200km ride to the Agnellotreffen in Italy, I did the usual, Oil + Filter, Air Filter (upgraded to a K&N) plus plugs. I changed the tyres from road biased to Contintental TKC 80's but only becaus...

Re: Elefant advice required

There are atleast four bars that sell Beer at the Elefantentreffen, but I would take some beers with you anyway, they also sell tea and coffee plus food. There is a McDonald's and Lidls at Regen but not alot else close. Purchase atleast two straw bales for your tent and seating area. The Elefant Ral...

I was going to do August...

Re: Agnellotreffen 2017

Hi Andy thankyou, yeah it's a fairly new Wintertreff being the 4th edition in 2017, but it looks like a beautiful location, and 1500 bikers went last year so looks popular.

It's either going to be the Elefant, Augustusburg or a raid on Poland where we burn trees, cook meat and drink beer for a long weekend at a place to be de...
