    What's it worth?
    Hi All I have a 1986 XR600 in generally good over-all condition, don't think it would need much if indeed anything for M.O.T, runs away fine a bit of smoke on start-up but probably partially down to lack of use, would appreciate if someone could give a rough indication to value as have owned...

    Africa Twin

So for our next sojourn in October 2015 I will be getting another bike but I am not sure which one. Any one owned both the XT600E and...

  15. Motorcycle mathematics

    Chatter
    While the minimum number of motorcycles one should own is three, the correct number is actually n+1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.
