    I had some stickers made by Liam (Worzel Gummidge) for my R1100R as the genuine ones are very expensive. I have one in the pictures area on the site. The one on the right was the original sticker. So if you require any stickers for your BMW I have to say that he is the right person to make them...

    I have just had my first decent ride on my 2005 GS and really enjoyed it. I have a queery! Did BMW make the single with a low seat? I found that it was quite easy to touch the foot down on corners, and although my bike is fitted with a gel seat, at 5'7" my feet are flat on the floor, and I feel...

    Hi guys! Can anyone point me in the direction of a place to buy my F650GS 06 twin spark a fuel filter? I have only found motorworks selling them and at 60 odd quid. I know they have regulators in them too and they will cost about that but is there any cheaper places or options? I also read...

    What would the estimated cost be to lower the suspension of a 2007 F650GS? A local dealer told me they done one and BMW price was £500. I am sure this can be done cheaper.

    this seems to be a very common problem, people see what a good forum this is, sign up, and post questions and more often than not, they havent put their bike model/age in their info bit - this is not a blame thing, just an observation. can it not be made compulsory when you are signing up that...

    I have a problem which I hope others out there could give me some advice about. After I collected my bike from a BMW service in December I became aware of a slight wobble at slow speeds. It caused me to slip from my bike on a icy road marking in Bath a couple of weeks later. £150 later on...

    :uhoh: Contrary to popular belief and what has been printed in MCN, I have it on good authority today from the Southern Regional Manager at BMW (through SPC BMW) that there are no plans for an 800GS model. Currently, BMW have a lightweight enduro model in the 650, and top end models in the...

    I happened to be in Woolies this morning when I spotted something in the toy section. A set of four motorbikes made by Chad Valley in their 'Super Bikes' series, which included an orange Scarver. Of course I had to buy it - only ?5.99 for the set of four! They're about 1:20 scale and not bad...

    Picked up the latest MCN and on page 5 there is a little bit on the F650. Does anyone know if is going to be replaced or is it just going to get a facelift so to speak. The article also mentions a 650 twin. Anyone have any info or pics? If the F650GS is going to be replaced I might have to...

    Hello Well it seems odd now, a few years back I had been looking at buying myself a nice BMW bike. I didn't. Then I watched Long Way Round and have ended up looking again. But I am getting a little bit confused and would like someone more in the know than I - ie, anyone. to assist me...
