Re: Safe to ride with air in the ABS solenoid?

apart from brakes being spongy, eg poor braking performance, there is no damage could be done to the ABS modulator. the legality of riding with malfunctioning brakes is another matter :whistle: it is always a good idea before fully overhauling a brake system with ABS, just simply disconnecting the A...

Re: Not exactly a rideout...Triumph Dynamic Test day

rode the new bonnie and thought that the suspension was very adequate to the bike and a huge improvement to the old bonnies. those bikes are not aimed at people to whom the cornering speeds or brakes performance matter. look at them :laugh: and I had scrambler for three full riding days. after the n...

Re: Not exactly a rideout...Triumph Dynamic Test day

imho xsr700 and the other two are two completely different category bikes. xsr is just a mt07 with different (imho fugly) dress and reshuffled pegs and handlebars, while other two are aimed not at the rider per se, but to a person with different priorities in his bike :D also, if you want to ride tr...
