Re: Top Box Seals Itself Shut

Hi Harold, it may seem like a dumb question, but is your box a new one fitted to an 08 bike or are they both 08 models and you bought it as a package? If it's a new box at that price I would be taking it back to the dealer. If an 08 package drilling holes maybe a solution but you compromise waterpro...

Re: New member from Wales

Hi Jeff, from a Welshman in France welcome to the forum since you have frequently hopped in and out there's not much I can say about the advantages of coming on here. However, with your knowledge and experience I am sure we will benefit from your involvement. Welcome.

Re: Planning on Coming to France Beyond January 16 2016

Sorry about that I received it from a Motorcycle Group here in France and thought it new information, just had not read it myself. However, I was of the opinion that all the crap about how breathalysers had been put to bed. I will check this end again.

:swat: Calisto Grey the stealth fighter colour of a hit and run futuristic fighter. Just pause and think for a moment of those machines ridden by heros or battlecraft machines in Star War or Startrek, etc any blue, red,? No! They are grey. I rest my case or panniers  :beer: :beer: happy

Re: Rear Chevron Markings

I know that all these things are good ideas but a bit like weather protection kits I couldn't live with looking like the back of a motorway service vehicle. +1 I was going to say that or very similar, but since I already upset someone recently I thought I would give it a miss, however. Since it bee...

Re: Well, crap. Laid it over.

it is without doubt a great bike to ride and so nimble that we may create a sense of falls security in our mind up to the point of putting our feet down and then the true weight of the bike is recognised. Those that are shorter in the leg will find it difficult especially if the camber is steep or r...

Re: Well, crap. Laid it over.

Unlucky Mercator after no such bad luck I was riding last Wednesday around the French countryside on unfamiliar roads which to say the least were challenging and very interesting. I got to a junction in a small hamlet coming off a clean road onto a newly surfaced road with grit where I had to do a t...

Re: The end of an era

Aye Smileymiley I had the privilege to have worked in a close nit team bonded environment for the biggest part of my adult life. As a Welshman living in the valleys of Wales I believed my future had been mapped from the start: go to school and play rugby, leave school play rugby work in the mines, e...
