    bought another bike.

    Its a good bike and if going for a Yamaha it would be my personal choice over the 900. I had a good look at both in the shop and imho the 700 has a better pillion seat. Best of luck with it.

    Alright lets vote! Not political lol!

    I suppose we can take it for granted that we dont all go out in teeshirts and shorts in cold weather, so a good winter suit is a given. As such I think the OP was thinking in terms of items used in addition to that. The clue was in "heated".

    Alright lets vote! Not political lol!

    Heated Gloves definitely Number 1 in conjunction with muffs or substantial handguards. . Have heated grips and all they do is roast the palms of my hands.

    South Dakota Department of Health Reports a Case of COIVD-19 from the Sturgis Rally

    Perhaps because that bunch of people could spread it to other people, some of whom could die ! I knew two people who have died from this. I also know others whose lives will never be the same again because of the after affects. I know two intensive care nurses who have had to deal with folks...

    South Dakota Department of Health Reports a Case of COIVD-19 from the Sturgis Rally

    Just saw a news item at that estimated 250,000 have been infected as a result of the Sturgis ? CHEPS also reporting this and perhaps Fox news. Could this be accurate ?

    Who else has a dct that is never going back to a traditional clutch?

    I very much like DCT but I have no issue with the clutches on my other bikes that I have been used to for many years. I do however have a problem with arthritic hands. For now that will not stop me using a standard clutch but it could become a problem into the future.

    Is NC700X a Dual Sport bike. Yes, it is. And, no, is not.

    The NC is a road bike with dual sport clothes. Like any road bike it will handle mild gravel roads and the like. So will an R1 I took my former NC700X offroad once and almost wrecked the exhaust system. Lesson learned and it didn't go on anything other than graded gravel roads thereafter. For...

    Integra moving up to NC750x DCT

    Perhaps You should also ask this question on the UK NC site. I believe a number of them have had or currently have the Integra. One of the current owners (Embee) is a very knowledgeable member and may be able to help.

    4.5 liters on oil change with over sized filter

    Checking the oil on the centrestand will sometimes give a false reading. Firstly You are dependant on the ground being level under the stand legs and furthermore with the rear wheel off the ground the oil is pushed to the front of the motor. The bike needs to be upright on its wheels and on...

    Commuters Turn to Motorcycles and Scooters in the Wake of COVID-19

    Same happening here and not just motorcycles but bicycles and Ebikes also. You can't currently get a new CRF250L here in ireland at the moment and I assume that relates to other small models also. Obviously the affect of Covid on the manufacturing process is also playing a part in this. Bicycle...

    A bit confused about the empty gas tank

    That happened me recently when out on the Strom for the day. I had the Wife as pillion so the going was very relaxed. I started with a brimmed full tank and 400Kms to go. The Strom had never previously done that distance on a full tank but that day I was going to see what it could do. All was...

    Austria MOTOGP Crash

    Two weekends in succession where Zarco was involved in an accident. I understand Rossi and Morbidelli are questioning his actions in this instance.

    Austria MOTOGP Crash

    Vinales and Rossi were incredibly lucky. We were watching it live. We both got quite a shock and indeed She was very upset by the incident being an ardent Rossi fan.
