Re: Custom cruisers.

Has anyone on here gone from a normal naked or sports tourer to a midsize cruiser like a Dragstar or VN800 etc. :?: They just look so comfortable and relaxing to ride.. :) I wouldn't be seen dead on one. Heavy, slow, poor handling, based on antiquated technology & in victory's case poorly made. I'v...

Re: Retro scramblers

The mutts are pretty cool, a bit expensive for an aircooled 2v though.

Re: Xmax 400 2018

Ok, so apart from the exhaust it looks identical to my 300. Differences are that the rear wheel is down from 14" on the 300 to 13" to accomodate the extra cc's and that for your extra £1k over the 300 you get +5hp, +28kgs (to cope with which there's an extra front brake disc) weight, a parking brak...

Re: Legalised robbery

I never stay with any one company whenever my insurance is due for renewal I just look on the comparison websites & buy whatever is cheapest although the last few years have been spent flittering between MCE & Hastings.

Re: What me?

Somebody asked to borrow my favourite guitar and I handed it straight to him. Somebody else asked who I have seen break umpteen strings, scratch bodywork and hammer on bits that aren't meant to be hammered - so I said no. (Never spoke to me again but that was an extra bonus.: I wouldn't lend any of...

Re: Beautiful ride . Beautiful scenery . Rubbish stop at a dealer.

Walklikegump - Get your brand new Tmax from a better dealer and be sure to pop into the local dealer the same day on your new bike to rub his nose in it. & the point of that would be? By the sounds of it they wouldn't give a toss. It is a shame but customer service has never been a strong point in ...

Re: Kymco X-Town test

I'm not usually one to be down on new vehicles but they look pretty cheap & nasty. The little cubby hole looks like it'll be the first casualty & the plastics in general look quite flimsy certainly doesn't look as well made as the sym & why only 24bhp?? :shock: when all the other 300s on the market ...

Missing out......

Hi all whilst browsing gumtree the other week I stumbled upon a 2009 piaggio xevo for 200 quid! Text the seller to arrange a viewing he said to text him Sunday morning so I did. "Sorry mate I sold the bike on ebay". Damn! :( Anyone else have things like that happen to them? Seems to happen to me qui...
