    Rode a VFR once for a day. Nice bike with a powerful motor and very heavy. At this stage of my motorcycling career it would simply be too heavy for me. In any case I was never much attracted to it....

    I had the Moose experience once also when crossing over from Norway to Sweden up north. As You say it is a very big animal and gave me quite a start as it just burst out of the bushes in front of me...

    I have ridden the Tracer 900 with the three cylinder motor. By comparison with the NC motor the 900 is frantic to say the least. It is a very sporty motor and nothing about it is relaxed. The one I...

    I think its a fine bike with good looks. The Wife saw it today and her opinion is that it looks like a lot of spare parts cobbled together......:D

    I will take it up another notch. I once dropped the loose blade of a feeler guage down the Cam chain tunnel of a Z1300 Kawasaki. Fortunately it dropped on to the crankshaft. Thereafter followed the...

    Normal fuel consumption on my 2016 is mid to low 70's miles per imperial gallon. While it is not abused, the little motor is kept busy on most of my offroad and backroad rides. Good to see that it is...

    It was the latch of the frunk lid moving moving with rough surfaces on roads. When I suspected the latch I simply pressed down on the frunk over a rough patch of road and the rattle stopped. After...

    Yes I had such a rattle on my former NC700X. It bothered me until I figured out what it was. Once that was ascertained I forgot about it :cool:

    Similarity there also. I have a CRF250L albeit not bored out, but like You say it also is amazing fun offroad and on, as long as the road is twisty.

    Same situation over here with Road Racing. Someone gets killed almost every year on one or more of them. The same attitude prevails, as in the Riders know the risks they are taking. However in the...

    The trouble with lowering any bike is that you change the frame geometry and the damping ratios. For that reason I would purchase a lower bike or wear thicker soles or get a lower seat before I would...

    Of course a centrestand is the obvious answer but if You don't have one then get a length of wood appropriately cut to fit under the head of the axle bolt to keep the rear wheel off the ground....

    One of the "other rides" ready for a weekend away and lightly loaded. We should cover slightly over 1000 kms. I suspect a thorough strip and clean will be required on my return as there is rain...

    Charley lives locally here in Co Wicklow. He drops in on his Triumph Explorer occasionally to a cafe in Laragh Co Wicklow for coffee. Nice bloke. He is the real motorcyclist of the pair.

    I have had the pistons pushing back on my former KTM Adventure and require pumping as a result, but only after riding quickly over extremely rough ground offroad. I admit that the requirement to pump...

    That notion also falls flat on its face in my climate as does the notion that oring chains need very little lube. Folks tend to forget that there is no lube sealed inside the rollers of the chain....

    That Enfields basic appearance somewhat reminds me of my first ever motorcycle a BSA M21. I have a sort of liking for Enfields but I am not sure if I am yet ready to own one. The new twins are nice...

    I agree with Rippin that Tutoro is the best (imho). There is no take off required either electronically or vacuum. I have had both it and the Scottoiler and favour the Tutoro because of its more...
