Re: BMW event.

Thoroughly enjoyed riding the 650GT. It was difficult to fully concentrate on the scoot as it was very windy and riding in a group meant I had to concentrate on other things. However, it was very comfy and handled just like my CB500X which I was very surprised at. It was very quick too, a little tur...

BMW event.

They have three scooters at the test drive event at Squires Cafe.

650 sport, gt and electric one.

Booked to test the gt at 2pm.

Re: New Forza review

Yowser, expensive servicing. I suspect the scoot will be too much for me financially but at least if I get a test drive it will answer my question of how good does a bike "swing arm" scoot ride compared to traditional scooter. Apologies, I have also hijacked this thread about Forza. Back on topic, g...

Re: New Forza review

Defscoot, make sure you test one first 100% as its a swinging engine rear end, not great on the bumps. There are lots of posts on Forza forums of people trying to get better shocks etc to try to help on that front. As they seem to be putting so many eggs in the Forza basket why not go all out and s...

Re: New Forza review

I never understand why headlights aren't the best that can be achieved on lots of bikes. Scooters are used to commute a fair bit and great lighting should be a given. Although most people's commutes are in urban areas, which are normally lit, so the effectiveness of the headlight is not something y...
