Re: Dordogne motocamp

Interesting to know this for future reference..... whereabouts is it or do they have a website? We stayed in a couple of great moto camps last year, though in Chile. It's hard to beat the good vibes of a good moto camp ☺ Pukon Motocamp in the Chilean Lakes? Hi Graham...... yes, that's the one, it w...

Re: The Dolomites, four men, six countries one small bike

Enjoyed the trip write-up, in particular having recently ridden thru Switzerland into Italy, camping at Lake Como, now in Tuscany. I like the idea of a CRF Rallye.....

Re: V Twin Club

A V-twin is generally accepted as being an engine whose cylinders are less than 90 degrees apart, e.g. the classic Honda 52 degree motor. A motor with a 90 degree angle is correctly referred to as an L-twin, such as the case with varous Ducatis. However, I saw a Moto Guzzi the other day with an angl...

Moto Guzzi museum by Lake Como. Fascinating collection of bikes and motor cutaways. Love the V7 Sport.

Re: Lake Como anyone...? https://www.lakecomohostel.com/index.php

Thanks for the heads-up on this place..... we turned up this pm and they had a double room with en-suite free. Great value for 66 Euros incl. breakfast, about a third the cost of a 'proper' hotel around here ☺ We had to make the bed up and there's a hole or two in the sheets, but it's clean & friend...

Re: Yamaha Tenere 700 - Deliveries?

Ordered mine in May and the dealer's heard nothing yet. No problem though, waiting is often better than having ☺ Some have however got out of the factory as evidenced by a Ceramic Ice one that's on the road around here.

Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

MCN's opinion is often slanted towards who spends most £££s advertising. The Yam has taken years to bring to market and whilst cheap repeats all the previous mistakes - overweight and under powered. That depends entirely what you want it for (the KTM is pretty much the same weight). It will suit me...

Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

I suspect that, for once, MCN's verdict is probably correct in the context of their test criteria.....but then I'm a great Yamaha fan and totally biased :) Undoubtedly the Yam is a lot prettier!
