    Hi All I have been a member before having owned a Trophy & an 1050ST. Recently sold my BMW GS LC and decided I wanted a naked bike. Thought about an R Nine T but then started to look at a custom Street Twin. Knew the lack of grunt would frustrate me so have ordered the Speed Twin. Cant wait...

    I recently became the owner of a 2013 Thruxton 900. I'm new to riding in the US. I rode small capacity motorcycles (100 to 250cc) about 20+ years ago. Looking to learn from the enthusiasts on this forum.

    Hi Gang After searching for a cheap commuter bike for a few days, I've gone and bought myself a lovely looking low mileage Tiger T709 with an 855cc lump. I test rode a BMW F650GS on Saturday but wasn't really tickled too much by it. Tried to find a good V-Strom 650 but none of the sellers who...

    Hi All, I just got back into bikes after a big lay off. Toured a lot in Europe in my younger days until my the 900 trophy got nicked and other life matters took over! Just wanted to mention that I put some EZ Moto levers on my recently purchased Sprint ST1050 and for £20 delivered I have to...
