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...

Mines on 38k and the wheel bearings are perfect, I shouldn't worry about them. 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...
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...
Yes it very tempting lol. I know a guy I met at this years Elefantentreffen that is coming down from Yorkshire via tunnel then through France, A guy called Andy G has done many winterfreffs on a C90 but this year was on a Honda Transalp outfit.

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...
