Re: TKC 80

Nothing wrong with an EO9 offroad--and good road miles(I've done big trips with them--but on a 250)--rear only that is--something proper for the front --and the fronts don't wear that quick--shame that the Army specials are getting scarce for the front--they stopped making them for the rear some tim...

Re: CRF 250L Battery

Lets take a step back here--Li Ion batts are meant to be a direct replacement for the "normal AGM " batts on a bike--so the bike charging system does not change--simply that the Li-Ion batts need a higher charging voltage and also pump out a higher voltage--but not beyond acceptable limits...

Re: The Plight of the Bumblebee

It looks ok--but what use is it??--Starbucks is the limit--NOT like the original (which I had)---it was an ok bike but mine shed all its hardy spicer needles out of the front of the driveshaft--basic design fault with too much angle on the joint. If you look at Dakar entries then they tilted the who...

NOT gone under--simply had enough of BMW corporate after 35 years, slowing down, going back to roots, and selling Royal Enfield. I've known Dave and Wally C for about 30 years or so and done tours with Dave. http://www.britishdealernews.co.uk/gene ... al-enfield

Re: Britain looking to start the next chapter

I'm glad all the rhetoric is fizzling out a bit and , of whichever persuasion, we have to move on and, dare I say it, try and be positive.

Re: Aftermarket LED and HIDs now not allowed?

Got the 7x5 projector and tried it--really bright with a great cut off--BUT my Alp is at the design change point where they revised the front headlamp style slightly, and the instruments--so its not a straightforward fit--a challenge for a warmer day.
