Can't match that

Tennerod is obviously beside himself with anticipation.

Me ? Well I am happy that I sold my DL650 last night to a local-ish guy who appears to be an enthusiast. I have a few more $ to spend on...

Cheeky Prick

I only have 9 years to go! I had better get started on that bucket list.

Perhaps that why you bought a Thruxton?

40 years of hard work should have some reward at the end I guess.

DRs rule

If I could only have one bike the DR650 would be it. My DRZ is better on the dirt the Strom better on the road, but it is hard to beat the mighty DR for an all rounder.

For more dirt than road,...

Possibly my V-strom will have a new home by tonight.

difficult to do

You tube videos show that it takes a fair tug to get the Co2 to activate. A bit like you realizing your UHF cord is still attached as you walk away. You notice the slight pull in time usually.

Ultra heavy duty Bridgestone tubes are harder to puncture and last well. I usually change them after two years or so. If it has been patched replace it.
