Re: Which Ducati Would You Recommend?

Of the modern super bikes I think only the Panigale, RSV4 and R1 are especially good looking bikes. All the others are a bit plain and samey.

Re: Which Ducati Would You Recommend?

I'm with StMarks on this one. Whilst the older bikes do have that classic look and take me back to my childhood, and are arguably more iconic, the newer ones look far sexier IMHO.


And yes, I am short sighted!

Re: 2017 Versys 650 Grand Tourer - ongoing review

I spent a bit of time making my Multi sit on its nose a little bit. Worth trying to add a little rear preload if the bike squats under acceleration.

By nature these bikes tend to sit more flat.

Re: Things really have gone too far now

Haven't the police in London just this week uncovered a lock up with loads of stolen bikes inside? Maybe as a result of this incident.

I have heard the latest ploy is they stick a cheap tracker to parked bikes in London and then just steal them in the night when the bike is parked up at home.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

I need to sort out the pick up date for the Versys. I had agreed this afternoon but I can't make it.

I also need to sort out the insurance for the bikes. I doubt I'll get any money back but it should be much cheaper next year.

New bike registrations

Anyone seen any figures for the last couple of months?

I haven't seen a single new sports bike on the road yet. But have seen loads of retro bikes.
