    I am looking for a "do it all" bike, to replace the Transalp (London ULEZ has kiboshed it's use) and the R1200RT. I am looking at the Vstrom 650, the Tracer 700 or the NC750X I have ridden the NC750X recently and it was good. I rode the VStrom a while back, but can't remember anything about...

  6. The new AT, emperors new clothes

    Africa Twin
    The reason we all love the AT is because if the bike that it is and the experiences that the bike has given us, but every one wetting themselves over a bike that isn't an AT, that they have not seen, nor ridden and don't even know the specs of, but because Mr Honda has given it the same name...

    Evening all !! Anyone here ridden a Vara with both Givi & Mra Vario screens ?? I have a givi on mine now, but would be very temped to get the latter, as I've had them before on other bikes and found them brilliant.

  12. So define...........................

    Adventure as in adventure bike. To me riding any bike is a bit of an adventure. Doesn't matter where you're going or for how long.

  13. High Mileages,fine,but what has done to achieve them.

    All these fantastic high mileages that have been done on these fantastic bikes that we have,but nobody ever asks at what cost.So that is the question,what have you done in terms of maintenance,what have you had to do as far as larger repairs or replacements are concerned and how have you ridden...
  14. Cheap hack?

    I've been watching this with interest, but its too far away for me. I've ridden a couple of these (and a Grand Canyon) when one of my bikes was being serviced in the past, and they go quite well, and are pretty light. My only bad memory was the power of the headlamp, but its an easy upgrade...
