Re: sorn

My Royal Enfield Himalayan is still taxed and under three years old(no mot) as it has panniers and can be pressed into service going out for food. My CZ 175 is historic tax class so no tax and MOT required.

Re: COVID-19......Your Situation

Without wishing to rub anyones nose in it and i do feel for a huge amount of people in a worse situation than me. We have paid our mortgage off and have no loans or other commitments. My wife is a nurse (no worries of work drying up here!) and my daughter and her partner work in the care industry so...

Re: The Two Stroke Bug - Help Needed With a Cure

Thanks guys. I think I'm more inclined toward the Suzi GT750 or similar type is what I'm likely to go for, fully restored and working, as my budget is up to £10k. Happy to look at everything at this stage however - it's all new to me and I need that again in biking. The Suzuki GT550 was in my opini...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I finally pulled the trigger and put a deposit down on one just over a week ago (from CooperB) In three years I’ve gone from a 1200GS via a CB500X to the Himalayan and I’m looking forward to having a crack at some light off roading. I purchased my Himalayan Saturday. I havent been out on it yet. I ...

Re: Today I are mainly listening to ...

Rush RIP Neil Peart He was a proper ADV rider too. Went on a long distance ride around America on a GS after his wife died. I was never a Rush fan, and I hate his Ayn Rand-inspired lyrics, but Peart was one of the most talented drummers of his time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSToKcbWz1k[media...

Be aware that the SM DRZ has much firmer suspension which is not ideal for off-road, though plenty seem to do it.
They also have a larger more powerful front brake.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

When i first looked at the specifications for the Himalayan it didn,t look great on paper but that only tells a fraction of the story. I cannot pass any judgement as i have yet to ride one but the majority of Enfield himalayan owners seem very happy with their purchases. Everyone laughed when i tol...

Re: My New Bike

Enjoy you're new bike, I seem to be going in the completely opposite direction. I agree,i have owned many m...
