    Hi Guys, I will be heading to Wales at the end of the week and while I don't expect any issues I will be happier if I had breakdown cover. I actually have a new insurance policy starting on the 14th February with adequate cover but nothing before then. Is it possible to get short term cover...

    During the summer I usually contract myself out to main dealers for specialist Technician work but during the 'quieter' winter I do a lot of private restoration work.

    Hi all Well, I'm extremely excited this evening as tomorrow may well be the day I buy my first Transalp 600! It is a '99 twin disc model that was imported in 2011 but has been converted already to mph. I am looking at it tomorrow, but I hope to be the proud owner and riding it back along the M4...

    Need some new rubber, currently running Tourance with tubes Rang around for some quotes and am being told that you can only get the 90/90/21 for tubed application now, and the 140/80/17 needs to be tubeless? I'm confused - can I still run a tube in a tubeless rear Tourance? Thanks.............Sam

    Can anyone recommend an insurance company that will insure on the vin plate ? My son has just got a bike from Germany and after some insurance before getting it registered. He's already had a few silly quotes and even a few that said would insure it but won't let him ride it until it's...
  9. Varadero
    My varadero has started jumping out of 2nd gear into neutral, does anyone know what this is or is it as i suspect, a worn drum/selector forks? If so does anyone know if you can get to it with engine in the bike, because the honda service manual quotes only 3hrs for the job

  14. Insurance
    I've been trying to sort out a Multibike policy for my Vara and little NX400 after Carole Nash wouldn't play ball and provide FC on both bikes (the NX4 is a Brazilian import) however after some research here and elsewhere, I found the eBike and Swintons both are happy with the NX4. I had asked...
  15. Varadero
    after lots of research but no actual test rides i have decided to put the vara on top of my list. the other contenders were 955 tiger and vstrom 1000 but couldnt live with the tigers ugly mug and the vstroms quality seems a bit suspect. my main concern is the leg room as i have a 36" inseam...

    I used MCN to get a quote for a bike with several providers on Monday. Said quotes were provided. Yesterday I had lots of missed calls from the number 01933 351680 but no messages were left. Ditto today. Upon googling the number I have discovered that it is in fact an automated number stemming...

    That's clearly what insurance companies do. Got my renewal from Carole Nash the other day - €355, remember this is Ireland we're talking about. Haven't done anything about it as I'm dying with bronchitis at the moment, was going to leave it 'till I felt a bit better. Anyway, phone goes this...
