  8. Dominator exhaust and off road mudguard added to the 650

    Hi guys, I added a dominator exhaust and off road mudguard to my TA last week. I think the mudguard ads a more aggressive look the machine. The exhaust was cheap but I do not think the link pipe is engineered to the correct angle as the exhaust was tight against the indicator. I have attached...

  12. Question re cancellation charges

    I've recently read that if you sell your bike you must notify your insurers and cancel the policy ( or change it if you have a new machine ) the reason being that if the new owner is uninsured and has a prang you could be liable and pursued by your insurer if they have to pay . Many companies...

    Just browsed the MCN bikes for sale pages, as you do, and kicked the search for @'s up. 4 total, 3 of which are private. 2 of those private sales are 50+k miles old, and one of them is a bitsa to my eyes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . but they all want £3k plus for their bikes...
