    Owners with a temp guage, how variable is your temp guage, coming from a car that sits in the middle what ever. My Funduro moves quite a bit, on a run it'll sit on about a quarter, in traffic it rises quite fast to just over 1/2 and the fan cuts in, but I get moving quickly so I haven't let it...

    I was just looking at the historical version of the site from Trevor's days of looking after it, and I had a look at the owners page. I wonder how many of these people still own their/a Scarvers... Alys Hayes Barry Merchant - I know he went to a big BMW and back again, not sure where you are...

    I was wondering if there were any owners in the Tesside area that met up or went for rides together. Always nice to have a bit of company! :riding:

    Hi there I know some of you have got the heat4jackets kit. I'm thinking of getting one and am wondering how hot you've found it to be? Too hot, too cold, just right? Did anybody get a thermostat to go with it? And how washable is the liner with it sewn in? I've emailed the guy who sells them...

    I would like to congratulate everybody who runs this website - bloody excellent. :not worthy: I was just interested how many Scarver owners are logging onto this website these days? I was only wondering as I very rarely see fellow Scarver riders on my travels in the south East. Anyway, they...

    How about having a F650 owners list showing our locations in case anyone needed any help or just wanted to visit?..... I would be happy to lend my tools and help any member if they needed it... No personal details just a rough location.

    Hello there; I am a freelance journo doing an `Old Vs New' feature for MCN on the BMW F650 Funduro/Strada series vs the post 2000 CS/GS/Dakar bikes. What we need are owner opinions from those who have ideally owned both the nineties, and later 2000 onwards F650 bikes, or at least ridden both...

    I get little time these days to do regular updates to the website, but the forums fortunately keep it going along nicely :mrgreen: However I've had a few hours free over the weekend and this morning to put two more of the 'regulars' images and profiles on the "Owners" pages. They are Ian...

    Don't know whether it's just my bike, but whoever assembled it went overboard with zip-ties round the cables on the bars and around the headstock area. I felt they were too tight when locking the bike up on full lock. Anyways like ... I put some bar risers in this morning and had to snip those...

    For those of you with the '04 F650GS or Dakar who realise that even the BMW high-screen is of no real value, I've been experimenting with bits of 'perspex' (as one does) to try and get a screen to work that might be of use as a 'Touring' screen. I picked up some 'supposedly' redundant screens...

    I feel a bit of an eeejut asking this as a 'retired londoner', but when I left I was not a biker and didn't really pay them much notice. :roll: I'm going into town in a week or so to meet up with some friends, and thought it would be fun to stretch Ziggette's legs a bit, and do a bit of...
