Re: Rear tyre slipping

I have to back up what's already been said that avon vyper strykes are crap! I'd go on to say they're actually dangerous no grip in wet/cold conditions at all. I fitted a set to my old aprilia atlantic & wished I'd skinted myself to stretch to city grips. I love michelin city grips fantastic grip in...

Re: Warm and waterproof clothing!

Don't buy anything made by RST. Weisse are pretty good I had a fully lined all in one waterproof suit which was brilliant (no need to wear a jacket underneath) which lasted for 6 years.

Re: rear tyre time

Are city grips not available for the burgman? I've found them to be the best tyres for scooters, good wear rate as well.

Re: Honda X-ADV Finally Unveiled

No prices yet. The engine comes from the NC range which was designed as a low revving hi-torque (and fuel efficient) engine, so power outputs aren't comparable with race bikes! Exclamation marks are unecessary my original statement wasn't meant as an insult and I stand by it 54bhp from a 750cc twin...

Re: Honda X-ADV Finally Unveiled

Price? Why only 54bhp from a 750 twin? I like the look of it & being a Honda it will be a quality item but the specs are disappointing. Crap video as well, hardly shows the bike.

Re: New kymco 550 being shown in ten days!

Looks like a cross between an aprilia SRV850 & a T-max. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Re: Sunday morning - Essex meets ?

Must they only be in Essex? Box Hill in Surrey is a good one & there's also Godstone on the A5 as well all within easy reach. Should do an Ace cafe run maybe?
