    Hi guys, I’m Reuben from Ireland and just I just bought a 98 funduro, really happy with it and only 5700 miles. I might be doing a small bit of off-road/ trail stuff. What accessories would you guys recommend? And from what brands? I was looking at here crash bars for a start. I also had want to...

    Well, it finally came around. This last weekend three mates and I did the BMW offroad course in Wales. One of us had already done it twice, so he sauntered off into the top group and spent the weekend doing powerslides and all that stuff while the other three of us learnt the basics. What an...

    Was on the Simon Pavey offroad school in Wales this weekend. I did the course on the 650GS. Simon insists that there is virtually NO difference (for what they do) betwen the regular 650 and Dakar other than how tall it is. Day 1 was a lot of fun - lots of drills all morning on the basics -...

    I rather like the look of the Fastway Footpegs, a bit pricey but wide and not too aggressive in terms of the metal teeth, which I find removes skin from shins very effectively. Anyway...the point of my post was that on Nippy Normans web site it say they fit the R1100GS,R1150GS,R1200GS and most...

    Macs 'beloved' recently purchased the greatest ever 30th birthday present a man could ask for, namely the off-road skillls course on the 15th and 16th of October. Has anybody got any advice or tips on how they found the course? Better still, anybody on that one?! Cheers

    Anyone tried it or have I just got to get a GS variant? thanks, dan

    I enjoy my CS greatly, but I must confess that I think that the GS looks better. Having said that, the CS has two majaor advantages - tubeless tyres and the belt-drive. My ideal bike would be a GS but with tubeless tyres (easy to do - the R1100GS has them); The problem is the belt can't be used...

    Hi writing for further advice I'm afraid, As you may know I have only recently bought my Dakar and I fully intend taking it off road at some point. The only problem I have is that I have never ridden anything off road at all and, having ridden sports bikes in the past, the feeling of the back...

    I have just purchased a second set of wheels for my 2001GS because I use the bike every day for work but want to get back into off-roading at weekends. I propose to fit some decent off road tyres to the second set of wheels. According to most write ups metzler Karoo's are better than TKC 80's...
