    Hello all, After toying around with the idea of motorcycling, I finally took the leap and got myself a provisional license. While looking for a bike, I've discovered a F650 CS Scarver in a shop I really like. I went with a friend who knows a bit about motorcycles and he said that from looking...

    Hi Everyone, I have just bought another bike after a 14 year break and this is the first one I've owned which is just for fun. My previous bikes were only used for commuting but my 2002 Scarver will be a big boys toy. I've not had any particularly sporty bikes (Honda CD200, Honda CB250RS, big...

    Howdey, Just registered (thanks DaveS), thought I'd say hello before I go for a look around. I bought my 1995 Lime Green F650 Funduro from Bikearama in North London in 1998, and used it as a commuter into the City (I went to look at an Aprilia Pegaso, but my legs are too short - turned out...

    Hi all. After a succession of big tourers and sports bikes I've gone for something basic, well, almost. A single cylinder, but less maintenance that my old Royal Enfield Crusader I've done 300 miles since Saturday, all in rain! and first impressions are good, apart from a very uncomfortable seat...
