if you are serious about offroad--and speed, then look no further than the current Dakar formula for size power and weight. I know you won't get factory power over the counter but it proves the point--they are NOT slow. Gone are the days of of over 1000 cc monstrosities that are way overweight and o...
are they actually doing French registered vehicles with the sane zeal?--or is it simply easy to ping any Brit (who is "over there" and can't fight it) ,whilst not incurring the Wrath of the yellow vests and having the cameras demolished again?--I'm very suspicious as in the UK surely they couldn't g...

I really do think the best thing to do is buy a bike out there and go with someone like State Farm. It will be a US plated bike and you shouldn't have a problem getting it insured--especially if someone will give you a "home address" out there also. You have 90 days on your international driving per...

I picked up on this comment "Riding on private land is a civil matter so cops aren't interested and as long as you are insured they are happy for you to right anything they consider as a right of way." But having researched it I still think the police can intervene under section 59 as you are riding...
talking a bit off topic---It seems that on the one hand the government wants us all to drive electric in 10 years--BUT here we are finding reasons not to use environmentally friendly e-bikes. In cars the battery life is 10 years before you need a very expensive battery pack change--the batteries are...
Green slime do a special for tubed tyres--again anything that lets it down slowly is worth it. I carry spare tubes and a pair of the LONG Michelin bend levers in a special tube or other strap on method--depends on the bike--even designed and made my own tool box for the Transalp to carry the long le...

So.....did anyone (who went to the festival) try out the 790 or Tenere?? If so what did you think? I rode both. The new Tenere was lovely on the road, but felt a bit tame for me on the trails. (Others I rode with liked it, but it seemed a bit dull to me) The 790R felt a lot lighter that it was, but...
The few bikes that sort of fit the bill like the KLR650, My wr 250R etc are not Euro 4 compliant and projected sales mean that manufacturers can't justify homologating them--both the KLR and my WR250R are still made and sold elsewhere. The genuine trail market is not huge and lets face it even KTM d...
