Re: Roll call

Thanks guys, great to see you are all good. We are in complete turmoil here and are still in lockdown and are now in day 83. Travel is extremely restricted and is not allowed from province to province. Our lockdown rules are very harsh. Alcohol has only just now been lifted and suppliers have restri...

Roll call

Hi guys

just a shout out to some long lost mates. I have not been here for a while, life got in the way.

So just a roll call to some of the guys I interacted with way back.

Hope you are all safe and doing OK, very shocked to see and here what is happening over the water.

Stay safe.

Re: I want to motorcycle ...

What is it with this ABS thing, do you think it will make you a better rider. I don't think so. Do you think it will make you safer, I don't think so. There is no substitute for experience and training. ABS will not stop you quicker, but it may just make you believe you can by short cutting proper t...

Re: This week: 2014 Yamaha FZ-09: Vote Today

This bike does speak to me, although I usually reserve comment until I ride them, I give this an awesome. I just get that feeling that this is going to have loads and loads of low down grunt from that triple with lots of flick-ability and a slick box that is just going to make the ovaries tingle. A ...

Re: 2013 BMW R1200R - Coolness Factor = 82.7%

Brilliant to see it at no 2, (I must have a little common sense to own one, whoo hoo). The thing with this bike is that it is a great all rounder, and while I hear you about the price, I based my decision partially on longevity. My GS is now 6 years old 85 000 plus KM and other than a new clutch it ...

Re: This week: 2013 BMW R1200R: Vote Today

Always had an inkling I would get one of these, so when the time came for a shop around last year, I did the homework, did the rounds and still ended up coming back to this bike. Sure you can nitpick, until you ride one that is, then everything else is forgiven. I have been a GS fan for a long time,...

Shriker has hit the nail(partially) on the head. The part he missed out is that for many people the HD's have satisfied their particular need. In that respect they are successful.
