Re: EU. In or out?

Question: If we are out of the EU and migrants / refugees come across to the UK via the EU, what can we do with them? Can we just send them back to wherever we think they came from (France / Ireland etc. as is the current situation)? Or, having left the EU, can those countries just refuse to take th...

Re: G650GS - Adjustable rear brake lever?

From memory (I had one in 2010/11) the brake lever is made from coated steel, so option 1 would be to cut the lever and weld on a backing to lift the lever up, linish down and paint. the small gap would be filled with weld, so would not be seen. Option 2 would be to add something on top of the lever...

Re: Fitting heated grips.

So you go out in the rain and your grips could overheat?

I would get rid of them myself, however if you must fit them, add an isolator switch so they can quickly be turned off if the controller fails.

Re: what have you done to your bike today??

Tiger 800
Removed the Garmin mount and wiring.
Removed the Gopro mount.
Removed the Scottoiler.
Removed the Screen deflector.
Quick wash.

Its heading to a new home on Friday, to be replaced by an R1250RS (NOT GS)

It has been good fun but not a keeper.

Re: Numb Bum

OK, so:
Seat cover
Air cushion
Sheepskin
Padded underwear

That's good for at least 12 hours...it will need to be though, as you won't be able to reach the ground unless you also wear some of those Goth Boots :lol:

Re: Numb Bum

Moto Skiveez - underpants with padding, they are better than cycling unders, but more expensive.

Moto Legends sell them, there will be others too.

Re: Scottish locals.....

There's been too much wind around here recently (North of Ayrshire) for the wee buggers. Never easy to say, but anywhere on the West where the weather is a light wind (under about 10mph) and damp, it will be a horror film in the making until the end of September. Usually Ok around the coastline wher...

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). An...

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. Can't say i would buy them, your backside can spot low tyre pressure ...
