Re: MCN - Tenere 700 v KTM 790 Adventure R

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...

Re: Cameras in France

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...

Re: Bike insurance for the USA no longer available

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...

Re: Lady Rambler , going to speak to the Council.

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...

Re: eBikes next

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...

Re: Ultraseal for tubed tyres?

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...

Re: EDC Morocco, Africa, 2019. Open invite for FREE On/Off road & desert guided tour.

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...

Re: If Only Suzuki Would....?

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...
