Re: National Scooter Rally

Modern scooters handle significantly better than their ancestors.

Re: New bike help! What constitutes high mileage? Query about servicing too.

Gone are the days when forks had drain plugs at the bottom and changing the oil in them was a 20 minute job.

Re: Wrong Choice. New '18 SV650.

Throttle raising gadget is a bit of a gimmick imo, hasn't prevented me from stalling a number of times.

Tesco Direct to close...

Just found out Tesco Direct is closing down on the 9th of July and there's a sale on.


Could be some good bargains to be had.

Re: Service recommendations and cost

Have been impressed with the quality of customer service at Cupar Motorcycles, not very close to Glasgow, but opportunity for a nice run there and back.
My first service there was discounted because...

Re: Wrong Choice. New '18 SV650.

The 90 v is the reason its so smooth.

A 20p coin will balance on its edge on the engine casing while...

Re: Wrong Choice. New '18 SV650.

Nice, a real 90 v-twin instead of a fake 270 crank parallel.

Re: Where is the idle adjuster on the new model?

The electrics are not made in Italy...
