    Hi just a quick question. How much do you think a 2003 Dakar could power while riding? Do you think it would be all right powering my iPhone and garmin zumo 220 at the same time? Many thanks Connor

    Hi all. I am considering buying one of these 12V 'cigerette lighter' style power sockets, to fit on my GS. Has anyone else bought one of these before? Do they work OK? Where abouts on the bike did you put it? Is there anything else on the market better than this one? Spud.

Yes the head light is adjusted properly and I have a bright blue type lamp in the head light but , ho my God. Does the...

    My wife has the same age GS as I do yet her's pulls all the way though the revs - beautifully. My GS below 2K revs stutters until you get the revs up. Having ridden hers it makes me feel that mine is at fault - it is regularly serviced - however I wonder if its worth changing the spark plug...

    I was tooling along the A47 last night when I loss power. Plenty of fuel in the tank, no warning lights, oil changed 3 months ago, water levels fine.

    Just got round to looking at this month's copy of RIDE. The F650 "Classic" doesn't even figure in the ratings - I guess there weren't enough replies. However, I've managed to be the sole F650 representative on the BMW owner's pictures page!
