    I got my new bike a few weeks ago and signed up for a direct access course. Im not new to bikes but not had one for several years, and never anything above a 125 for the road, played on park bikes probably more than on road use. I though that the three tests I had to do were a bit much, a...

    Myself and my 2 good mates Andy and Liam did a bit of laning today. We did 2 lanes we are quite familier first, but they were a hell of a lot muddier than we are used to! This bit is about the least muddy part of the muddy section - Andy was the first to go down on his XT660.. Then it was...

    A last minute decision last night saw me riding off towards the Yonderman Cafe at Wardlow Mires in the Peak District, had my fill up of cholesterol and then off for a bimble

    Took a nice ride out today on my F650GS (2003) with a good mate who has a Dakar. Only about 50 miles, really getting used to the bike now after one week with it. I'm loving the extra torque and acceleration. Definitely need a Dakar seat though, the low seat that came with my bike is pretty hard! Ade

    Maybe just me but I found it REALLY slippery on the roads today. There was a rolled over van, another car in a hedge and I had a rear wheel slide under accelaeration on the CS this morning going to work. It could be the leaf mulch on the road. Take it easy out there dudes :riding:

    hi all went and test rode two new bikes today as i'm after a new one. first up was a BMW F800ST - i couldnt get off it quick enough. the engine is great but the riding position is all wrong after my funduro (i suspect the 800GS will be very successful with that engine in it though) second was...

    Since hubby and I had the day off today we took a leisurely ride out together around the Island, did some green laning and a bit of off road, nothing to dramatic but certainly something that I have never done before as never could with the previous bike (R6). Had a great time, wish everyday...

    Wow, how exciting, Chesterfield Town centre under water, cars fearing to go through deep water :dance: . All the way home I'd been going through wide large puddles, up to the foot pegs - relying on the fact that this baby is meant to do this type of thing. I've seen the pics of river crossings...

    Hi all, Have been browsing this site for a while now and after reading all the threads with interest, I took the plunge and my shiny silver F650GS was delivered today. Had the comfort pack option as it seemed to make sense - although I'd like to say the same about the alarm instructions! I've...

    Hi All Today I finally became the proud owner of an F650GS Dakar! Very chuffed and now feel less of a fraud being on this forum! Even though I flew in from overseas today (sounds a lot more glamourous than it is!) I just couldn't stop riding! The ride home was about 80 miles... had a break...

    Today's dilemma is that I've got to go to a conference in Gateshead at the end of March... now do I fly, cheap at ?15 each way. Or go by bike, take a day there and a day back to Somerset. :riding: The company is paying... My head tells me to fly... my heart to ride.... :? Suggestions...

    Continued Dakar emptyness :wall: I went to the BMW dealer to pick up my fixed Dakar this morning - or so I thought. . . :wall: My bike has been left standing for a month - in a cold cold shed. Anything that could begin to rust has done. Chain & Sprokets look rusty - both hangers some...
