    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    I recently bought this bike off a friend but have decided it's just not for me. He had spent a small fortune on it getting it to what it is now. I would say that the only thing that lets it down slightly is a few marks on the frame. I preferred my ktm 950 adventure and regret selling that...

    Other Bikes
    I was at the NEC for Motorcycle Live this week, and whilst the pages of the motorcycling press are plastered with "Adventure Bikes", it was noticeable that there weren't any big trail bikes at the show. If you want to spend £20k on 125+bhp and 250kg of touring bike on long travel suspension then...
