Re: Disgusting behaviour over Squaddies treatment!!

I have nothing to add to your comments above, Steve. Shocking behaviour from the hospital.

Re: So, talk me out of buying a new GSA....

I'm now on my 4th bike in the GS range. I've owned an 1150 GS, an 1150GSA and two 1200GSA. My last one caught fire but my dealer repaired it under warranty, bought it back from me and sold me the new one. I've had a few niggles with all my BMWs but I've had full service and back up from my dealer an...

Re: Honda Goldwing.....Would you?

I'd love to have a test ride. There is something that appeals about them and I think I'd probably enjoy riding one. I like big, comfortable bikes but would want to compare and contrast with the BMW K1600GTL as well. I've ridden the big, Victory Vision and really enjoyed that but I still like 4/6 cyl...

Into the centre it's 95 miles each way and the only bit I get tired with at the moment is the road works on the M3 and the fact that you never know which bit they're going to close at night. I would say that hea...

They are 245/65R17 size and are 107 T rated. They are normally in the range of about £115 each. I'm looking for £2...

Re: Are ABR Rallies a thing of the past ?

Some good replies ... Just think they need a little bit more going on at them to entice people to attend them The first year at the Dorset Rally (held January 2013) I had a full day road ride out, that 50% attended, we organised a Dakar Rider to lead a ride out on Salisbury Plain and we had a cafe ...

Re: Are ABR Rallies a thing of the past ?

Having attended a few rallies and organising two, I now find myself working a lot of weekends. I enjoyed attending most of the rallies I went to in the past, and I also enjoyed organising the two rallies I hosted in Dorset. But people move on and I've formed some very good friendships with people I'...
