Re: Triumph 800XC would you buy one ?

I think its more a case of "you will get a great review if we can have the bike before anyone else" That type of review isn't worth the paper its written on, the late reviews are much more factual. I speak with knowledge on this subject as I am the Marketing Supervisor for a company that imports an...

Re: Triumph 800XC would you buy one ?

Are MCN sponsored by Triumph? Quite the oposite: at one point Triumph would not allow MCN to test their bikes because they kept coming bottom in group tests and getting slagged off by MCN for being unreliable, ugly, boring, etc. I agree that the bike press rely on advertising revenue from manufactu...

Re: W*&king, F%$king, C$^ts!!!

Sorry... stepped in here by mistake... thought it was about Waking Freaking Cats! :blink: Seriously - it has happened to me on several occasions; sometimes with the bike on the centre stand. There was a note on the bike once with a phone number but when I called to ask how they knocked the bike over...

Re: Kawasaki 500KLE

I always thought they should be OK but any reports said they were gutless. I have heard they are pretty good with a GPZ 500 engine in. Sorry I'm not much more help but they are cheap and probably a good workhorse as they share and engine with the ER5. Dull but 1000 riding schools can't be wrong. I ...
