    The reviews weren't great from what I remember, cheaply made in India and just generally a bit confused without enough power to be an adventure bike and too much bulk to be a nice lightweight

    Ahh damn.


    Was thinking it might be better than my old ninja 250r that's made from 50% rust and 50% hope.

    Good in winter though

    Did a bit more work on the CBR400rr tonight. Managed to sort out the wiring routing, got the radiator and fan sorted.
    Feels like I might be able to get this thing down for an MOT this weekend!
    Got to work out how to fit the new rear fairings properly and get a the front indicators sorted now, but these are small jobs compared to all the other things on the bike I have already done! :D

    Omg riding in sardinia is amazing.


    It's like mad max out here cars filter rules and indicators seem purely optional. (Which is good as this 3 button indicator **** if bmws is terrible)

    The r1200r is an interesting bike it seems part tractor part fine watch.


    Its rattling so hard I can feel my teeth yet I can clutch less up and down shift without the slightest jolt.

    A streetfighter liter bike would be amazing if it wasnt for the bump roads.


    Might go back to the rental place tonight and see if I can upgrade to the new GS

    Haha, nutty!!

    Just ordered a chain/sprocket and some connectors to let me finish off some small bits for the bike over the weekend. Then want to ride it over for an MOT attempt next week :D

    Just back from a week in the Picos with Teapot One. The Picos have firmly displaced the Alps as my favourite place to ride. Epic, epic roads. We got lucky with the weather though.

    Loving Sardinia on the bike.

    Linen pants are nice to ride in with the heat but a bit scary.

    Rental place only had jackets so the gf got my kevlar Jean's on the back

    Anyone planning on attending the PC harper Ride of Respect? 27th October near Oxford. Looks like it might be a big one...

    No, ferry from Portsmouth to Santander, and back from Bilbao. 22 - 23 hour crossing.

    Agreed, the styling is just "noisy" looks like a transformer.

    It is rather Marmite!

    Given that’ll it’ll likely be based on the new RR, let’s hope so. I like the look of that, but not sure how it’ll ‘transform’ to a taller bike.
