    Has anyone else found that their fuel economy has got poorer as the weather gets colder? For my last few tanks I've got 58 mpg, whereas I usually get around 66 mpg. This weekend, as well as fitting the heated grips, I plan to check the air filter, and do my weekly chain oiling. On another...

    No, really - I've noticed this for ages now and I really can't kid myself it's not so any more. If it's really cold, or very warm, my Funduro sounds like a bag of spanners. If it's 8 degrees C out, it runs like a buttered mink. There might be a + or - 1 degree margin there, but really I've...

    Hi Guys! I'm new here, having added a '94 F650 Funduro to the (ever increasing) stable. Other bikes include an R1100RS, an R80RTIC, and a 1981 Guzzi Mk1 California. I have to say that the bike I take out and have the most fun on is the F650, though I'm not sure if it will be so much fun...

    What is everyone wearing when then go out on the bike this weather? I'm wearing my usual gear which is OK when I'm going along but when I stop or get held at traffic lights I'm wilting. I see loads of riders in just shorts and T shirts but after going out like that many, many years ago and...

    As the weather has turned (again) so that I have had to change back to my clear visor, and now there is the eternal problem of misting up when riding. It's not convenient or comfortable to ride with the visor up and if it's up a little, then it rattles with the wind. So, who has one of these...

    Well, after recently buying myself a Funduro, I am as happy as a pig in the proverbial. I have also just recently got my license, so not that experienced when it comes to bad weather. The problem is that with this bad weather, I can't see a dicky bird out of my visor. I have a new Corbeau...

    First frosts and I get the F650 hiccupping again. Not nice on an icy road.... I never got to the bottom of it in the last bout of really cold weather we had the winter before last. And by the time I'd gone through the list of work, the weather warmed up and so the problem vanished. Anyone any...

    Any ideas where I can get a decent rain cover for the F650? I have seen the thread in the forum that does not rate the Oxford Rainex, and the M&S covers that seemed to be the "voters" favourite have gone out of business? :think:

    Oh what joy. A snap of frost and my Dakar failed me. seems the Battery dies very quickly :wall: Tried and failed to bump the damn thing. Is it correct that to get at the battery you have to take most of the plastic of the silly thing? I'm hoping it's just a new Battery required. Any idea...
