Re: MotoGP ruined again on BTSport

Agree on Heuwen--complete idiot and worst of all --he thinks he's smart and has to try and put others down. I don't think that you are alone in your opinion. He was never that good a racer-and that was a LONG time ago. I heard a tale from a friend of a FRIEND WHO ACTUALLY PLANTED ONE ON THE TW"T IN ...

Re: WR250f

I think that youtube link sums it up----I have the WR250R and its really a great allrounder--IT IS NOT an enduro bike. It has a decent subframe, can carry loads of luggage, it has a 350W alternator, sophisticated on board diagnostics(no plug in computer required), 26k valve check interval, and the s...

Re: Taking bike to the USA

US forces get away with it --but thats it--I had a BMW R1100S and it was exactly the same as the US version--apart from side reflectors on the forks--but it was so difficult that I sold it and bought over there--dollar price (in numbers)=pound price (in numbers) here so its a lot cheaper to buy. Jus...

Re: Insurance cover for off-road training

raises an interesting point--the definition of "off road"--if its trail riding on a legal byway then normal insurance should apply (as the bike has to be taxed MOTd and insured). However, if its truly offroad then its getting really difficult unless its "thrown in " with a competition entry. I would...

Re: Brexit

That "I player" review was extremely helpful--talk about deja-vu !!Getting told to sod off by the French in 1963--that we were too late etc--and the facts were that we really did agree with just about all the entry terms. Finally getting into the EEC(European ECONOMIC Community) in Jan 1971 when Ted...

Re: Cree fog lights - wiring advice

Just fit some proper CREE headlight bulbs(fan cooled circuit etc)--much brighter with half the power consumption--and decent bulbs are typically one or two LEDs so they sit in the right place (focal point) for the reflector (designed for an incandescent). I then fit VERY low power consumption catsey...

Re: The Honda Africa twin 1000 , warts and all.

The CX had dodgy cam chain tensioners, VF chocolate cams, a couple had those horrible enclosed front discs, CB900s that blew their engines up for fun, earlier twins had centrifugal oil filters that didn't filter very much, petrol tanks that rusted, reg rec failures, cams running straight in the hea...

Re: The Honda Africa twin 1000 , warts and all.

So how many people based their buying decision on Honda's past build history, hoping it would be the same on the latest AT? If that's recent history it's one thing but if you're looking back to the '80s when they were at their [strike]worst[/strike] best for throwing rubbish at unsuspecting buyers ...

Re: Flipping useless bumf

I tried a FREEPOST address to No 10--I hope it gums up the works a bit. I had a flip through--starts by saying that we have asked for "facts"--but I found only about 5 lines of dubious heritage --the rest was pure conjecture and scaremongering--and with some bad grammar!!--dodgy Dave !--poor old Mr ...
