Another believer here. Had it on my last two bikes and crossed bikes off my short list that did not have it at my last change (Africa Twin and Verys - think both have it now). Good for speed control but also on motorways generally. Easy to cover big miles and to use just to relax your right hand/sho...
I’ve always sorted my own plans and organised trips with mates. That covers Europe, Africa and the USA (29 countries so far by bike). There is so much information out there you are not going to miss the gems if you really do your homework. For me its therefore about a) do you want to spend the time ...

I think it is a good question......and am interested in the answers too. From my limited experience I would advise the following: 1. Don’t shut the throttle hard when you hit it and get out of shape (easier said than done) 2. Don’t have anything too hard (eg hard panniers) that will hurt you when yo...
Check the ferries if you are considering this, I think they are all sold out now?

I like the electric angle and can understand the support crew for tv purposes. I am also really interested in the support electric pick up trucks (even if Russ gets right up my nose). 400 mile range and 0-60 in 3 secs! I’m struggling more with the final support vehicle being a v8 6.2 litre pick up. ...
I had clutch wear problems on my crf250l. I changed the plates/discs Twice and had HD springs. The Honda recommended oil also, and changed more than spec. The problem turned out to be the rear tyre rubbing the back of the front of the swing arm. This was due to having an oversize tyre. It could not...

Assume your trip is 1 way? I did UK to Romania and back in 2 weeks which gave us a few days in Romania but it was a full agenda. I loved it too - especially liked Buccovina (painted monasteries), if you are in Sibiu on Sunday the sung mass at the famous church (piped outside) was hauntingly beautifu...
