    Hi All, After trying to find a nice TA for a while, I recently bought a less than ideal bike because it was local, cheap and I was getting impatient. The bike i've bought was advertised as a non-runner, it had a flat battery and a flat tyre. When I got the bike home I added some fresh fuel and...

    Yea, I know I could register on a Wildstar/Roadstar forum and ask if the bike is a Sweetie or a Lemon, but I kind of like this forum so I try here first. (Any former Cruiserpilots on here?) So, the Yamaha XV1600A Wildstar or Roadstar as it's known in the US. Is it a good bike for what it's...
  12. Bike Comms & Audio
    Now we have 2 bikes we decided it would be a good idea to be able to communicate other than by vague hand signals or at stops. I don't fancy the autocom and walkie talkie option but the scala rider bluetooth devices look good. Has anyone got any experience of them? How well do the helmet...
