    Chatter
    Hi Guys, Just found out this morning that the company I work for is about to enter into consultation and will probably be laying off around 100 people.

    Varadero
    Hi I've seen from a few older posts that some have fitted motad venom silencers and pipes to their varadero's. After contacting Motad, and their reply that they do not sell a fitment, what have people done to enable a fit? My 00 mk1 has the original exhausts on and they are starting to look a...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Having had a change in circumstances which meant I got an extra two months in the sunny UK, as well as being unable to sell my bike for (what I determined to be) a reasonable price, I decided to reward myself with a ride from London up through Wales and around Scotland. As I'd never been before...
  10. SS Nuts n' bolts packages. Any good?

    Mechanical Advice
    Just wondering if those bulk deals on SS nuts n' bolts you see on eBay are worth it. I wouldn't put one where there's any real stress but there are plenty of places on my bike where the OEM ones are rotting out. Just curious. Geo

  13. HOGS serious debate.....

    Buell / Harley Davidson
    I was reading a report on the new Electra Glide Ultra on MCN this week: "...75bhp...at 400kg dry it's far too heavy, the gearbox is too agriculatural, the controls clumsy and old-fashioned and the brakes are poor. While riding around a wet corner is terrifying because of its bulk and the...

    Here goes, I've been riding the KTM for 2 weeks now and have done almost 2,000 miles on her, a mix of motorway, big & small country roads and commuting through London. So I'm ready to compare the two... This is a bit of an apples/oranges discussion, as the bikes are clearly made with a...

    Chatter
    My 2008 XRV Awards ! I have been a bit preoccupied this last six months or so and therefore a bit light on XRV input. Although I have come up to speed with things now and having a little more time on my hands than I really needed right now. I think this thread may well cover the bulk of the...
