difficult times for all businesses at the moment
lets hope they can be rescued again

a typical scenario is that you would be buying the domain and hosting together.
this means you do not need to manually point your domain to a webhost.
and anyone typing your domain name in a browser will be directed to your hosting server
but there will be nothing on your server until you upload or install your actual website

most hosting companies will not get involved with the website itself, it is down to you to upload, maintain and manage content.
they will only offer support for the hosting itself and any issues you get with email etc that run on the hosting package.
although some will offer some assistance if you have some technical issues with your website

there are companies that will offer this service, but it will cost a fair bit more.

another consideration is that who owns the existing website and domain?
are they willing to sell to someone else?
as site is up and running it suggests someone is paying for both.
if they are you then have job of migrating content and domain name over to you and your chosen hosting company, which a lot of hosting companies will help with.

it all depends on disk space and bandwidth
its best to get a deal that can scale up as demand increases
you could probably get some hosting for a few quid a month that will tide you over for the first 12 months as unlikely to have huge requirements initially.

https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting - i use this for my personal hosting, they are sufficent... nothing more, but they are cheap

i would highly recommend these guys
https://cloudabove.com/hosting
we use them for all our company websites, very good support

nope.
cant see me going back to a sports bike now... not unless i win the lottery and then i doubt would be looking at zxr6r's!

although these bikes are not aimed at our market though to be fair
the 600 sports was the bike you bought when you first got your big bike licence
from the youngsters i speak to, it still is the route most take

New MV Augusta Brutale 1000RR is the best looking new bike out there by a country mile.

only the streetfighter v4 for me, I was going to hold out until it was released, but would never have been able to afford.

Quote from: Alzo on September 26, 2019, 07:52:25 pmI also must have missed the Daytona purchase.



The Speed has a much better engine. 
Oh my ribs...😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

As for you quandary I'd go for the last option if I were you.

Speed engine much more character - better grunt, sounds miles better yet still as smooth as a four pot. Might be miles behind on power but definitely better.

Get over yourself 😉

He's right you know ;)

Quote from: komp on September 09, 2019, 04:12:54 pmit comes with something called triumph shift assist, which i found to be shit when i went on test ride
so had a QS installed, only works on up shift... i believe, i haven't actually tried on downshift tbh


Thats odd mate, Triumph Shift Assist IS a quickshifter for the upchange with a blipper for the downchange. Tiger 1200 owner with it rate it highly so I'm surprised you found it shit :(


it didn't work like any quick shifter i ever used before, it would on occasion change without the clutch, but not very often.
the fact they still sell one as an option suggests that even triumph know its not a true QS

Quote from: The Wizard of MOz on September 09, 2019, 09:50:01 pmBut an up/down QS is available as (albeit extra) factory fit?

I'd never have a new bike without that now.
Dealer fits it if you specify it...as with Heated grips. I agree that QS up and Down is a must...now that I have lived with it...I couldn't be without it.


i found it very surprising that a bike of this spec came without one as standard
it is a necessity on a bike like this, hence why i had it fitted by the dealer before i collected
i did have a play with on ride to work this morning and does appear to be up and down.. bonus
