Re: new Africa Twin - perfect adventure bike?

Think Honda has looked at the market and seen that the R1200gs is only slightly heavier. BMW can't make enough of them so I think the riders who will be buying the Africa twin won't really be worrying about the weight.

Re: Garmin 590 or TOMTOM 400

Personal experiences. I have a 660 and a 550 both will take you through the centre of cities. Budapest on a Friday morning is a shit. Then of one junction and back on again at the next as it saves 10 metres or 5 seconds it does not matter which mode you put them into. There have been so many times o...

Re: Best way to cross the Channel with a bike

Eurotunnel if you live within a few hundred miles.. The crossing takes 35 mins plus around 30 mins faffing about before you leave. The 2-2 1/2 hours you save over the ferry will get you well into France. If your travelling more than 300 miles then it's better to ferry as you can then build it into a...

Re: Finally something sensible from our government! Might vote to keep this lot!

I've always looked as unemployment benefits as a wage. Your paid to look for work or in my opinion you should have to work a certain number of hours per week for it. Helping in local community projects, volunteering in old peoples homes, work experience, further studies or even litter picking. I'm s...

Re: Which is faster...DOHC GS1200 or KTM 990adv?.....Only one way to find out....FIGHT!!!

I looked at the new GS1200 or the then new KTM990. Do you know what decided it in the end ? I opened up the Touratech catalogue and soon realised which was the most sorted of the two bikes.

And which is the fast selling manufacture in the US..
