Re: If Only Suzuki Would....?

Thoughts......
The DRZ 400 is better than the DR350.
But, probably a modern, simple, light and cheap DR350 would have a market for sure.

Re: North America, First and Second.

Thanks for posting! Are you both on GS800's? What are your main reasons for choosing a GS800 for your travels? Have you made the right decision? I shipped my GSA800 over to the States in 2016 and thought it was the perfect bike for my 8000 mile trip. Just a service before I left the UK, an oil chang...

Re: CRF450L Mixed Feelings.

This feeds in to a hot debate on Thumpertalk about the user readiness of brand new enduro bikes. One school of thought says that any bike bought brand new from a dealership should be absolutely ready and prepared for its intended purpose without any further work on the part of the customer. In othe...

Re: And The 'MODS' have it !... (still)

Iconic British youth fashion/cultural scene of the 60's. Enjoyed a mass revival in the 80's, but for some it's always been around. I think it's a great look and the scooters are fantastic. I bet they all voted for Brexit. I had a Vespa and a Lambretta in the 80's, alongside some four cylinder Kawasa...

Re: Did you buy your bike new or used? Why?

Surely the key to this is budget? If money weren't an issue, surely we'd all buy new? Sort of......Even if you've got a healthy budget and you could easily afford a new bike, the savings to be had buying a nearly new ultra low mileage bike can very attractive. With the growth of PCP's the secondhan...

Re: BEFORE and AFTER

Thanks Chaps. I don't think I'll be doing much in the way of motorcycle travel this year as well. Time and money tied up in the build. I'm down to just my DRZ 400e and my CCM GP 450. I've got a big year ahead with the oakframed garage, landscaping, exterior wall, flagging, extending my workshop and ...

BEFORE and AFTER

Taking inspiration from daveuprite's "Falling Over" post, in which he shows his handy work with the reconstruction of his storage facility.....I thought it would be interesting for us to show "before" and "after" photos of our projects. Ideally these would be bike related, but not exclusively bike r...

Re: The Motorbike Show

Anyway, isn't it a bit of a poor argument to just tell those who hate a certain program/channel or whatever to simply 'turn over then'. Isn't it better that people are encouraged to criticize things when they are crap in the hope that the quality improves? Better surely than directing people to tur...
