Re: A quick GRT BENTLEY Meet...

Actually, my initial post reads slightly incorrectly. It was meant to say "surprisingly it WASN'T packed that night even though the weather was great".

Chris, I'm upset I'm not in the piccy! Spose we better go again then...😁

A quick GRT BENTLEY Meet...

Just realised I hadn't posted this photo of a quick meet up I had with the 'usual suspects' at Grt Bentley bike night last week (Weds). It was such a nice evening, weather good, nice company, good food etc that I thought I'd better do it. Especially as I got the blokes to pose for me. Here they are:...

Re: Finally!!!!!!!!!

Grumpy, excellent news that you got it back, but totally unacceptable that you were not offered a bike to run around on. In the car world no one would accept this sort of behaviour. I recently bought two new cars. Both of them suffered major engine and gearbox issues within the first 5 months. I rej...

Re: Burgman 650 now Discontinued.....

It's all about commitment regarding whether or not the 650 motor would meet Euro5. No reason it wouldn't if tinkered with. In fact, the 650 motor was still a very fresh unit after it's upgrade in 2013. Most of the important bits in the engine were replaced. The mechanical bits were indeed quite diff...

Re: New MP3 300

£7k is too much for 300cc. They should have dropped the 300 and reduced the cost of the 350. Far better imho. Are there 350 MP3s? There were 350 X10s (but not 500s in the UK), and the article refers to a MP3 500, but not a 350. The 350 engine in the Bev was fun!! :evil: Actually, the 500cc X10 was ...

Re: Vespa GTS 300 HPE SuperTech

Being one of the most stolen scooters is a big negative for me I had a new one in 2011 and, while it rode very well it was horrendously expensive on servicing (every 5,000 km) because I was riding 10,000 miles a year at the time and the speedo cable was very difficult to replace. I guess the servic...

Fowlers Bike Parts Website...

Many of you will already know about this site, but I have only just found the Fowlers Parts site for bikes. Used it yesterday to order genuine Vespa parts for my GTS service and coolant change. I'm also undertaking some other work on the bike. They had everything in stock. I was amazed to see you ca...
