Thats fair enough as long as it is realised that some views are prejudiced and bigoted and should be called just that and confronted where appropriate.

Re: More ridiculous mpg figures (AL7)

I would add to that-------ride at the speed where the bike is comfortable to keep in top gear without labouring. Normally about 50-55 mph
Avoid braking. Anticipate needing to slow down and let the...

Re: 2001 SV650 Engine Diagnostic Help

Engine oil level correct? How often do you check it?
Did you find the ball bearing in the engine oil or somewhere else? The clutch worm drive or steering head come to mind.

Re: Looking into buying a 2008 SV650, concerns

Re: 2001 SV650S issues

Re: Replacing Fork Springs, Advice Needed.

Re: Truth will always come out ...

The Mayors of London have usually been knobs but none has ever been in remotely the same league as Trump. You need to try harder to make your point. How about Kim, or Putin?
