Re: One of the locals

Talking of plucking ................ We have a few unusual birds visiting our suburban garden, and once in a while this sparrowhawk comes along for a brief "recce". However, I didn't realise how ambitious she was until yesterday: she caught this pigeon, which was, I suspect, bigger and heavier than ...

Re: RE Interceptor price announced

I like it!.... always had a bit of a soft spot for the Bullets, and the Enfield twins. One of the big twins in a nickel-plated Metisse frame - my idea of a "real" motorbike (if I can't have a Black Shadow/Lightning ;) ). So the new beastie's certainly something to consider - I know where I'll be hea...

Re: Lake District proposed TRO.

Yes, I saw the "anti" one too! That sort of nonsense has been peddled by the "Anti" brigade for years, and here in South Wales we've lost quite a few routes ... so I've signed the petition to keep the lanes open. (Don't use the bike "off-(tarmac)road" nowadays, but did a fair bit of Land Rover green...

Re: Screen Spoiler Deflector.

I have the very same model of "spoiler" on my V-Strom ... fortunately not in my line of sight ... and it's very effective at reducing (unfortunately not wholly eliminating) the famed V-Strom "buffeting".

Re: Honda Transalp?

..... and I should have mentioned: my VStrom has cast wheels, rather than built-up spoked wheels....much, much, much easier to clean!
