  1. RIP: Fifth Gear TV Show

    Didn't like this week's episode. Caravans and motorhomes?!?!

  3. I've bought something orange!

    A tiny taster of the pics I took and some countryside. I took quite a lot but it's impossible to capture it properly and not enough time to capture all you want!
  4. I've bought something orange!

    Just got back today from a 2000 mile round trip around the North Coast 500. The bike was ideal. It was great having adjustable suspension for the massive variations in the roads and having the torque to help on the twisty hairpins and belting out of bends. Being a wuss I ordered the hill hold assist option which more than came into its own It didn't miss a beat whether it was mile munching or hooning. Had a whale of a time :D

  7. RIP William Dunlop

    Very sad for all especially his pregnant wife What must Michael be thinking?
  8. RS3 - Saloon!

    LOL - it's always dangerous to test drive more expensive more exciting cars!
  9. So bloody slow!

    For the first time in a year or so it DOESN'T seem slow
  10. What would you do.....?

    That's good news.
  11. What would you do.....?

    I've only ever seen it done so that you can't see it! I'd not be happy either. Just looked on their site and this flyer says it's meant to be invisible! Even says "stealth UV etch" https://datatag.co.uk/PDFs/Datatag_Motorcycle_Brochure.pdf .... however whilst typing I pinged the pics to some bike mates. One has said " My cbr1000f was like that when I got her. It buffs off no probs lol. " Not sure if that's good or bad. I'd certainly take it up with the dealer. Just seems wrong. You didn't ask them to damage your panels.
  12. New pants please

    As you can imagine that vid's on every bike FB group and bike forum. I've watched it loads and still can't believe he go under the side skirts and out the other side and between the wheels. Quite amazing.

    The GS is always lurking in the background. I test rode one a number of years ago just to see what the huge following was about and was quite impressed but just didn't align really with my wants. I'm looking for less 'adventure' style and more road/sport/touring focus. The GT just fits my individual wants/needs like a glove. Then there was the financial deal. It's a fecking bargain with this discount compared with the GS. To be honest the GT is more often compared with the Tuono (race bike with straight bars) and the BMW S1000XR and a few others and mainly wins. My mate has a Tuono so it'll be interesting when we do to the Mosel Valley in May which is more suited/fun/etc. Another's coming on a KTM 1290 Adventure S. No GS's I've always liked the GT but the cost put me off and that negative was removed. So many dealer's staff actually bought them despite having access to all sorts as it's a proper deal. It also won some Sport Tourer awards etc and gets great reviews. It's a bit niche and some have even put it within its own category : hooligan tourer. It's so easy to ride normally but you now there's so much power available. I'm getting frustrated right now as I decided to garage it until the salt's gone and it's too cold to spend time tinkering or putting on stone chip protection etc. I'm itching for Spring! I'm not sure I could do what you've done and hang up your boots (for a while ). I'd be (more) grumpy etc at home! It's like an addiction. I just need that fix.

    A few pairs of pants needed here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-43239989

    Not much going on with it right now. 300 miles ridden and then put away due to all the salt on the roads, etc. I thought I might as well spare it one winter by waiting 2 or 3 weeks. Given the weather right now it might be a couple of weeks longer than I thought! I've got to know how it all fits together whilst wiring up the satnav. It's just a Superduke R with some bodywork, a bigger tank and extended rear subframe. A Beast in sheep's clothing
