Hi, I have broken down on 2 separate occasions in Europe whilst being insured with Carole Nash and they were superb. Worth noting if you do shop around, with CN if you are unable to ride, they will repatriate the bike for you - whilst riding with a buddy he broke his collar bone but the bike was ok,...

Hi Keith, looks superb run - great pics.
Hi, I have the BMW 650 Sertao. It weighs around 190 kilo not sure how that compares to the Dakar. I have ridden the bike extensively and it is capable off-road and fun on road - will see in excess of 100mph and is comfortable at high speed even wearing knobblies. It is fairly easy to change the fron...
Hi, if you are new to off-roading I would hesitate before spending your cash. Your commute I would have thought would place a fair emphasis on road comfort and ability - the bikes mentioned are all on the heavy side ie in excess of 200kilo I would guess, and will put you under significant pressure o...
