Re: Rider or Multibike Policies?

Last year my multi-bike policy seemed very high with approx. 25% increase!! I shopped around and couldn't really get a much lower premium. I thought I may as well get 2 seperate policies and build up a NCD on the cheaper bike. Guess what?? Yep, doing it that way turned out to be cheaper. :roll: :ro...

Re: Rider or Multibike Policies?

I used Bikesure for a few years then got pissed off with them as the price kept going up, then used Aviva until they no longer did multibike policies and only insured each individual bike, then last year went to Carole Nash who do a multibike policy using Aviva as the underwriters. :? What a bloody...

Re: Rider or Multibike Policies?

I got fed up with Bikesure’s ridiculous locked away at all times requirement. If one bike is classed as a classic, try RH. Prices are great, people know what they are talking about and they don’t charge for changes, additions etc. Regrettably, the only "Classic" here, is the Rider himself.... :lol:

Rider or Multibike Policies?

It's that time of year... again, and I am seriously wondering why I have so many bloody bikes but know full well that each one is for a different job and in all honesty, the combined stable is not actually worth that much in reality! Insurance for 4 bikes comes out at £411, FC. with Breakdown cover ...

Re: XRV750 THE Honda @T...

I didn't realise that the XRV site also catered tor transalps!--I have a 1997 600 and its a great tourer--even survived the Dragon rally this year--mild offroad capability helped in the bog!--I also make a carbon/kevlar bashplate for it to replace the plastic fantastic one. (see www.kodamacomposite...

Re: XRV750 THE Honda @T...

This has got me thinking about xrv.org as it was in the old days, complete with the many colourful characters on it! I recall that when the founder, Dave S, had had enough of running it, it was taken over by a commercial set-up who introduced various changes, such as adverts etc., which upset quite...

Re: XRV750 THE Honda @T...

I still go onto xrv regularly, it's now pretty much all tech type posts which are interesting from a tech (of course) perspective. There's virtually nil social interaction, at least compared to the old days when banter very much ruled! But, I'd say the 'rot' only set in purely from a social/banter ...

Re: XRV750 THE Honda @T...

I've mostly used my local Honda dealer, Kent M/C's, for spares, they are helpful and normally give a useful discount. Not that I've needed many spares with the AT being so robust! However, I've learnt that pattern service items are often rubbish by comparison and now generally only use OEM stuff. R...

Re: XRV750 THE Honda @T...

Thanks all. I will point Osvalter at this thread!

He knew of Lings already, and I mentioned Divd Silver who I have used for ages too :D

I was not certain how much in the way of actual spares RR have, I know they were good on accessories and oddities and modded parts such as the fuel pump...
