  1. Presription sunglasses or goggles.

    I have decided to treat myself to a new helmet and goggles to go with the bike I bought myself a few weeks ago.:thumbup: I only use open faced helmets and was wondering if anyone here uses prescription sunglasses or goggles and could recommend a place to get them made up. I am interested in...

    Hi Guys! Im traveling from Gothenburg Sweden to London to visit my brother in July, not by bike this time due to the economics. But i would be glad to get some advice on motorcycle shops and other motor related places that are worth visiting like museums and such. I'am riding a XL650V year...
  6. Today's waterproof test

    That's the first time I have been out on the bike in what I'd consider proper rain for ages. Made the mistake of not taking it seriously and getting kitted up before I went out. Didn't make sure everything was tucked in and velcro'd tight shut. And then my trousers just leaked, big time.:( Only...
  7. Bad news I'm afraid

    My mum suddenly and peacefully passed away yesterday morning in our house. I'm obviously devastated but happy in the knowledge that she wasn't ill or anything, her typical west coast determination and sharp wit shone through to the end. The life in her body just simply expired and that's it. At...
  8. Free: Respro foggy X mask

    For Sale / Wanted
    I bought it to reduce the fogging of my glasses with the visor down, looking at the listing and looking at the Respro site it would appear that the one I should have bought has a bendable nose bridge which may work better for me and my glasses. Anyhow, it's going in the bin if no-one wants it...

  10. Parkers used bike guide - gone????

    What's it worth?
    Can anyone point me in the direction of a Used bike pricing guide? Parkers seem to have removed theirs; MCN just refer you to their adverts; Used Bike Guide doesn't seem to have one any more. Glasses also dont seem to do bike. Googling brings up loads of "we buy any" sites and all...
  11. Varifocal glasses on motor bikes

    Does anyone have experience of using varifocal glasses when motorcycling? I wear glasses for distance, especially riding and driving. When I'm on a trip they aren't ideal for map reading (small print, coloured background) so I thought I'd try varifocals. I explained my requirements to the...

  14. Tinted Visor or Sun Glasses

    I have been using sunglasses :cool: for the past couple of weeks, when that big yellow thing in the sky has been working. I feel that my vision is restricted. I have had a look for a tinted visior and have seen an option at £45, but the site is also advertising pinlock tints at £18. Has any...
