Oh, I don't know! The fanbois would happily pay that price for something with the "i" prefix :shock:

Re: EU. In or out?

Couldn't be worse? ..... How about ReesMogg taking us back to the C18th?

Re: Will electric vehicles become the 'dieselgate' of 2050?

I'm puzzled by the hydrogen/fuel cell thing. As I understand it, the hydrogen is consumed in a fuel cell to produce electricity (and water as a waste/by-product) and, I assume, heat. All fine and dandy ... apart from the problems of storing, transporting and dispensing a highly explosive gas under g...

Re: NC75O X

I test-rode a 700 (or possibly a 750 ) X a couple of years ago, and over the 90 minutes or so decided I didn't like it much, mainly because of the low rev limit, and it seemed too tame after the Transalp. I bought instead a 650 VStrom, which is great. Roll on to last week ...... the VStrom went in f...

Re: Will electric vehicles become the 'dieselgate' of 2050?

I just get more cynical as I age.... I'm becoming the archetypal grumpy old man! Anyway ......... I don't profess to know the answers but I'm certain that electric vehicles, at least as presently realised, won't suit me. I'm retired so don't commute, don't ride/drive everyday, but when I do I tend t...

Re: hot grips wire?

My throttle-side grip seemed cold a little while back ... I've new pair of grips in the garage so tried to pluck up the enthusiasm to change them. After a week or so, though, I thought I'd check the wiring - sure enough, the connector to the RH grip had become disconnected. Soon put right, and full ...

Re: For whom the bridge tolls?

Anything that gets rid of that horrible melee at the "toll plaza" is OK by me .......... and not having to pay £5.60 to get home is always good, too. High time for the "powers that be" to turn their gaze onto the Newport bottleneck (Brynglas tunnels). I'm old enough to remember the first bridge open...
