Re: Dash cameras etc illegal in certain countrys abroad

Interesting stuff, especially Switzerland. I've just stuck my gopro to the Tiger (fixes nicely on the aux light protector) as I'm doing a quick trip over the Grand St Bernard Pass next week as part of a wander about France (the pass it a bit of a long way round detour from one place to the next).

Re: Cast Wheels F650 GS

An interesting question to ask after you bought the bike...... :roll:

For what you describe you should be OK, but could come a cropper if you decide to turn it up a notch, but no fun in not finding out.

AA cover?

Re: TPMS

Got them on my Tiger, gave false warnings and got replaced under warranty, though been OK for over a year now. interestingly most seem to be sealed units in the wheel, so need to be replaced or "hacked" once the batteries run out.

Re: Biker with Ear Problem

Food stands are usually excellent too, but thats off topic.....

Re: EU. In or out?

Its funny (in the sense of odd) all this talk of treaties. It is the Maastricht Treaty which has caused the majority of the problems by going for much further integration than most peoples wanted at the time (but holding a gun to the head of the smaller countries in terms of funding) . Yet that trea...

Used - because I’ll let some other mug spec the bike up for me and take the 50% depreciation hit over 2 and a half years.
Or

New, so I can thrash it senseless and still get it fixed under warranty then pass it on after 2 1/2 - 3 years to some unsuspecting Mug after the warranty expires!

No, it's not Touratech, just a cheap Chinese copy.

The Touratech one is only available in stainless steel.

You will need to be careful with sizing though as it's hit and miss.
As my gloves size is large, would you recommend getting the XL
Maybe, I got an XL pair, but ended up with an XXL pair, the chap on e-bay did free replacements if size incorrect (BargainBikerBrands). Really good service.
