It's top of my list, it checks all the boxes except that it's ugly compared to the 390/1290.
Went for a good ride on Sunday. Learnt that the front will stay up while going down crests pinned in 3rd
Both wheels on the road please
I didn't say that was on a public highway
Been borrowing @IC3 massive private driveway?
I believe you
hey quick question can a 50cc panels fit a 125cc panel
Got the Hornet MOTed, just an advisory on the front tyre She is a reliable beast, battery was not really happy after 2 weeks of no use in the cold though!
The baby blade is just waiting for the floor to dry, and boards to cover the walls in its new home before it can be moved out of the cold garage! Then I can slide in the new motor!
Not sure if its official ridge or knock off.
It's ok getting carda out is fairly easy if you've got strong fingers the hinge side the aluminium cases are tapered so you can pinch it and make the sides and carda aplay open a few degrees.
Get a Stealth wallet instead, much easier in my opinion.
First ride out of 2020 today. Actually really good - cold but no salt and good grip in the dry when the sun came out. Got just over 100 miles in, which felt enough to get the new brakes and chain bedded in.
What the idea of having screens fitted to the hand guards
Is it so you're hands can see where there going
Yeah, that'll be why. Very good.
Or, alternatively, it'll be to correct the woeful effort originally made by BMW so that you have enough protection for sitting on the bike for 10+ hours a day.
Was you and another at KingsLynn roundabout Saturday.
Nope, not me, I was just in Suffolk.
will be starting my bike up for the first time in 6 months over the next few days. Battery was removed and is now on a trickle charger for the next week or so to boost it back up.
From what I remember, I think i put a full tank in; anything else I need to be aware of? Tyres (PR5'S) have gone shiny again so they'll need re-scrubbing in( Shame )
Check your tyre pressures but apart from that should be a drop the battery in and go job.
I rode my bird for the first time since September at the weekend and that's all I did, battery was out and on a charger so hooked it up, put a couple of psi back in the tyres and ripped off down the M54 no issues.
Mine is stored outside as well so took it easy on the brakes for the first couple of applications just to scrub off the surface rust that had built up.
You will need scrubbing in again too. After 6 months off the bike it will take a while for your skills to catch up, so ride accordingly.
I know that’s not popular advice but it’s the reason the Air Ambulance critical care vehicle parks up on the A32 on good weekends this time of year.
Some suggestions please for a naked bike in the 700cc range for a lanky git please?
A budget would probably be useful for people to suggest a bike, given you could get anything from a 20 year old bike to a brand new showroom one with your loose criteria.
