On the XRV forum I organise regular off-road days.
The next one is the 14th November so if you fancy getting muddy come on down. I think some of you know about this as Boboneleg was asking me if some of you lot could come.
just got the bmw back after 30 years of car van driving wondering if there any 650 owners near me to ride out and tell me all the bikes quirks
look forward to hearing from you all cheers andrew :howdy:
:big grin: WELL :howdy: on a very good night sunshine warm breeze :-D we had a few hardy Yorkshire riders turn up
silly squid/kuyajonathan/brumbergson was on ones of of the new fangled 2pot jobs but we will not hold that against him ( great guy) and yes little old ME :mrgreen:
:howdy: i was thinking :think: and yes it did sting the brain cell a bit :whistle:
HOWS about a meet up to put some faces to names for riders around the Leeds/Cass/Wakefield/york/Selby area and any body else that is interested :not worthy:
Tuesday the 18 this mt at SQUIRES on the b1222...
Hi all - just had some simple work done on my bike (too lazy to do it myself), but my usual dealer - Slocombe's in Willesden - told me they'd stopped doing BMWs, although their BMW-trained mechanic was now working freelance.
Long story short, he's a bloody marvel, based just outside Luton -...
:howdy: hi - i was wondering if there was anything going on in the Bristol area or anyone had any ideas during this great late summer weather!
I live in Clevedon and have been looking for good riding routes for fun days out and a lovely little rest somewhere... slurp slurp
But, there are only...
Hello all, nice to meet you...
As from this moment I'm the newby owner of a beloved F650 (51) Dakar. I've spent a few weeks fixing a few (as I've found out to be 'common') problems on my newly purchased (formerly unloved) bike. Fork seals, speedo sensor, brakes, surging etc..- I can feel you...
I fancy a spin out on Sunday morning, does anyone fancy joining me?
I'll start from NOG at 10 ish, head into Cotswolds, down into Wiltshire, if it's dry maybe an easy section of the Ridgeway, then a few more twisties back to Oxford.
4 hrs ish.
Ridgeway easy on tourances or similar, though i...
Nothing fancy. Just some countryside. Had Kent in mind but don't really mind as long as it's not a long ride away from London.
And due to recent threads on the subject I would like to make myserlf clear: NOTHING MORE THEN RIDING A MOTORCYCLE...
I am looking to see your Dakar up close. Looking to buy one, and will travel anywhere in uk to see and buy one - but would like to sit on one to see what its like and maybe have a test ride on.
So if anyone in Kingston or near kingston-upon-thames can help....
I remember from some while back that someone know of a company in Bristol that specialises in powder coating on bikes. Can anyone remind me (either Bristol or Gloucester area, I live in the Forest of Dean).
Can anyone recommend a tyre supplier/fitter in the North Hampshire/Surrey (or Reading/Berks) area?
Also has anyone had any experience of getting a tyre mended rather than replacing it? :doh:
Got my second rear puncture in about 4 months yesterday :oops: which is a tad annoying as both tyres...
I have just noticed that the front tyre on my GS is due for replacement - I thought that the backs went first, but maybe I have the first front wheel drive GS :scratch:
I am having the bike serviced on Wednesday (12,000 since Mid march)
so I have the option I guess of having it done...
Anyone got any experiemce or info on Green-lane sites near to Guildford? I have heard New;ands Corner mentioned but wouldnt know where they mean in terms of bike-friendly (too many dog-walkers!). Anywhere in the surounding area would be of interest!
Hi all - I've copied this post from the Chain Gang forums in the hope that one of the *locals* can give some good advice to one of our Australian F650 'buddies'. Please reply here and I'll give Jack the URL of this thread so he can keep udated. Thanks ... Trevor.
