Re: What would you buy?

Some interesting answers. Anyone wanting to go touring on an xr400 / 600 is a masochist. I made the mistake of going to france on a supermoto. I realised it was a mistake just south of warrington. Thinking about it you're right. I like the idea of going back roads/ trails and only doing short milea...

Re: Brand Anti-Affiliation

Unfortunately the world contains far too many Mr Fazers. As for brands I wouldn't own. If I was given a bike I wouldn't care what manufacturer it was, as it would still be more fun than most cars. I don't think I'd buy a Honda. I've ridden a few and they have all handled really well but the engines ...

Re: What would you buy?

I think I'd get an old DR350 or XR400 and go round Spain and Portugal via little back roads and trails until the £5000 ran out.

Did you but it Ste? Looks like a better designed Katana.
No. The bloke selling it turned out to be a bit of a dick and I thought life's too short to be wasting my time on him.

There's plenty more bikes to choose from.

Cagiva LE750 Elefant

Hi guys, After a bit of advise. I've seen a Cagiva Elefant LE750 in the Lucky Stripe livery that seems to be well looked after and in excellent nick for its age, with 23500 miles on the clock. I'm seriously thinking of buying it and getting rid of my F650 Funduro. I'm sure this is my heart ruling my...

Re: Photo ID required Heysham port

My lad went to the TT via the IOM Ferry from Liverpool on friday evening.

They didn't ask for any photographic ID but they did frisk him and many other passengers. Not sure the point of that as any terrorist items would be better stashed on the bike.
