Re: Recall work

Well my experience has been totally to opposite to yours. Sadly, I have to retract my good words about Barrie Robson. I needed to take the weather protection and lower panels off last Friday and the securing bolts were all wrong for the relevant holes (incorrect lengths for the position). One on th...

Re: First Short Ride

Glad you like it 👍

Regarding the screen, I’m 6’6” and have a high seat, set on high because it messes with my legs and hip joints so need a massive screen for the quieter side of life in my lug holes 🤣

I don’t enjoy riding the work bikes as they have standard screens so get a right head battering!

I got the R@G one and it’s spot on. Easy to detach for cleaning behind and no problem reattaching 👍

The weep hole was done at the same time as shaft replacement for me.

Re: Knee Op Date

I am tempted to still tax the RT for the month, just to be able to get out on it at least once before my op. Will check the on the 29th the weather app for the week ahead and if its dry-ish i will tax it. Tax then SORN her after, either way she’s there for you if need be (I’ll not go into short ter...

Re: Centre stand removal

Actually, I’ve ordered some PVC tubing. It’s 20mm internal diameter and I am going to slit it lengthwise and see if it will stay in place and offer a first line of defence against road cr*p. Not sure if it will cause a water trap or even hold its shape but worth a try. :? I tried getting the stand ...

Re: Recall work

I'm torn between them and going to Grimsby! I have had servicing done in Grimsby with no issues but never used Barrie Robson I've heard some horror stories about both dealerships, mainly the sales side. When I had the warranty I travelled to Rainbow at Rotherham. I'd only heard of York recently and...

Can’t fault the BMW service as my bike was last at a dealer in September 2017! (It’s last software update was 2016).

Re: Mirrors

Good luck 🤞

The only other way I found they came off was whilst escorting the German chancellor from RAF Northolt into central London and I got a bit close to an oncoming vehicle’s door mirror which knocked the back off mine 🫣😂
