    Hi all, Wondering around Tesco like a zombie as usual, I stumbled on this - Garmin Drive 50 LMT Travel Edition with Worldwide maps at £85. I know it wont be water proof and fiddly to use perhaps, but at £85 its a shed load cheaper than a bike Nav?:thumbright: Anyone tried this out? Perhaps in...
  13. What's it worth?
    Hello All, I have recently come into ownership of a 1996 Africa Twin. Last run in 2007, it has sat garaged up ever since.

    I have an XR250R grey import registered in UK 2003 but on an M plate. Recent service and MOT the mechanic told me he believed that such bikes had gone up in value and that I should make sure I got what it was worth if I were to sell it. The bike has done 2300 miles on the odometer, I bought it...

    Hi to all! Have been toying with the idea of swapping my 650 with a 2015 NC750X. It's new but it's not the latest model. My main concern is the EFI... what's it like on low throttle openings? I've also heard many bikers complain that throttle may be snatchy / jerky when opening from closed...
