Re: What Do You Look For In An Adventure Bike?

....now that's something I'd definately buy but certainly wouldn't entertain the 1200.

Re: What Do You Look For In An Adventure Bike?

Re: Giant Loop Luggage

I haven't used the Giant Loop stuff personally being a tight wad but several of my mates have and still do use them on a range of bikes including an ancient XR600, KTM SUper Enduro 950 and the smaller 690 enduro. They swear by them but I seem to remember that in torrential rain they were not 100% wa...

Re: Tyres K60 and Mitas?

I used the Mitas Dakar 09s on my Tenere to do loads of trails to and from Italy, including the one up Mount Jafferau and I found them to be spot on. Just bought some Mefo Explorers from Zen Overland (top company)for my 990 to go to Malta and back so hopefully they'll be fine.....let you guys know af...
