Bike Talk / Kawasaki alive and well....
July 10, 2020, 06:05:20 pm
The Z H2 is one fantastic motorcycle...it may not be a beauty...but as we all know...beauty is only skin deep...so under the skin the Z H2 is simply phenomenal. Go ride one...don't take my word for it...but be prepared to ride a bike that does mind blowing pace whilst maintaining immense control.
Fantastic job.

Bike Talk / What's the future.
November 29, 2019, 08:24:05 am
What does the future hold for motorcycles...they are getting very expensive...you can actually run a car cheaper than a modern litre bike...the younger generation are not taking up riding in any great numbers...and as we know the fossil fuel burning engine is under threat...so with all that where do we see bikes heading?

Bike Talk / Cap on Horsepower.
November 13, 2019, 09:32:21 pm
If...the powers that be decided a Horsepwer cap was to be applied to road going motorcycles irrespective of CC's or engine configuration what would we be accepting of...100bhp...150bhp...thoughts?

Bike Talk / Kawasaki Z H2
October 27, 2019, 07:43:54 am
As a Kawasaki branded Forum are we in support of what Kawasaki has produced...are we to judge on looks alone...or should we applaud the level of performance this bike has been adorned with...or do we think the power is irrelevant and Kawasaki have failed.

Bike Talk / Bike Service
July 22, 2019, 03:22:15 pm
Being the organised type I booked my bike service a few months in advance...I request a price and £168 was given...happy with that.
Forward to service today...completed...sat me down at desk...that will be £272 please..."erm no it wont" says I...Service girl says "we did Brake fluid change"...so despite me instructing it not to be done as bike is only 10 months old they go ahead and do it and try and charge me £102 for the privilege.
Needless to say after some Poker Faces and staring I won and paid £168...but I left feeling cheapened by the whole experience...what the fuck is it with Dealers.

January 26, 2019, 07:57:22 pm
I like Indian...stopped at dealership the other day and was impressed with the build quality...lumps of iron...but tickled me...great second bike if I had the spare cash.

Bike Talk / New Keeper
August 31, 2018, 07:16:50 pm
Tomorrow I'm off to pick up one of these bad boys...a BMW S1000R Sport in Motorsport colours...had the 2015 version and then delved into the Adventure sector...enjoyed it...but realised I missed the Roadster style which if being perfectly honest more suits my stature and how I want a bike to perform underneath me...looking forward to ownership.

Bike Talk / Bike manufacturers
July 12, 2018, 06:15:00 am
I'm aware of issues with the latest Panigale V4....a friend bought an S model and in a short time it has been in for various software updates...fire risk update...misting Dashboard....and the latest is revised fairings to assist with horrendous heat build up from the rear cylinders.
I now hear through a reliable source the Triumph Speed Triple RS is having some serious engine issues and switchgear issues
So what is going on with manufacturers...surely having been building bikes for decades they should be producing better bikes...not lesser bikes...are the public being used as unpaid Test mules?????

I love it...obviously apart from the worry about encountering the law I thoroughly enjoy our roads in my part of the world.
Blessed.

Bike Talk / Riding motorcycles.
May 18, 2018, 09:32:40 am
I'm a very young looking 54....I've been riding bikes since 12 years old on Farm roads and public roads since 16...my enthusiasm then was high...my enthusiasm now is on par...am I unique or are there others out there feel the same.

Bike Talk / Sportsbikes no more.
March 26, 2018, 07:48:20 am
I know it has been spoken about before...but yesterday I had the first decent outting on the bike...and I only saw 2 Sportsbikes the whole day...and I did see loads of bikes. The Adventure market is definitely the category of choice with Naked and Sports Tourers right behind.
A shift has taken hold.

Bike Talk / Touring Bug.
August 31, 2017, 07:09:19 pm
Did a European trip in 2016....did it again with a higher degree of confidence in 2017...so now I am absolutely hooked and my brain is never away from planning trips for the future.
If you have been abroad give us the low down to wet the appetite.

Bike Talk / Are Sportsbikes becoming extinct.
December 12, 2016, 09:25:04 pm
Well....are they...at the NECC recently I glanced at the Sportsbikes...but that was it...now I accept my age and taste has an influence...but I also think part of it you can get some great performance from other classes. The BMW XR for example is as near as dammit Sportsbike quick...so it's not as if we're being short-changed in performance.
Also the Cafe racer type style is growing at a rate. I definitely see the writing on the wall for the Sportsbike scene.
Thoughts.
