Re: Test Ride Cost?

ive had 2 test rides, about 2 years ago, . I ended up buying both bikes, but had to put down a £100 on both, and agree to paying £1000 each if damaged. you can imagine I was very very careful on my demo rides, both of which had a time limit of less than an hour. I also had to provide a photo ID sho...

Re: EU. In or out?

Ah, the great British sports hero dilemma. Do you train hard, and grind out the victories knowing you will be seen a 'dull' world champ...or do you go all rock and roll and fill the pages of the tabloids? Anyone remember Graham Noyce...GB's world MX champ? Lived life 'to the full' shall we say...bu...

Honda 450L

Interesting that the L is going for £8000. I haven't seen anything like that. All I've seen is dealers offering a free RST suit. If it was £8000 and 40hp, I'm sure there would be more interest in the bike in the UK I meant in the £8k's and a similar price to the a 450 KTM 6 days in reality Who need...

Re: Honda 450L

I just don't get it. Take 2 ordinary blokes out on the trails enjoying their day, bimbling along, occasionally rip snorting along the fast straight bits, chugging through the muddy bits, stopping for a pasty and a brew half way through the day snd enjoying the views. One a new £10,000 CRF450L and t...

2010 KTM 530 EXC

For me .......... I can't be doing with ornaments under dust sheets so the key is having something I want to use. ........ It was only under a sheet as I was using the 530 to finally make my mind up If truth be known, I have generally taken the XR 400 (when I could have taken the 530) out on the tr...

2010 KTM 530 EXC

Will do It was a stonking bike and mint (530) However I have always been a Jap bike rider from an early age and whilst not 'ready to race', they are just easy to live with and are less fuss I just don't gel with euro dirt bikes, too finicky and needy - always needing fettling - I couldn't be doing w...

Honda 450L

I bumped into Mossy on his recently and he made the point that you are going to get to know your Honda dealer very well if you want to keep the warrantee valid. I still think for the UK market it is absolutely pointless. Honda dealer said as long as you bought genuine Honda filters and recommended ...

Honda 450L

Saw one in the flesh and it's bloody gorgeous So very Honda - with brilliant attention to detail and finishing touches My KTM in comparison is not the same build quality and it shows https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190112/546c0016a2236891ffb6eb500668233c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190...
