Stolen MT500

The Police told me something astounding the other day. They said that they had no record of an MT500 being reported as stolen. MT350s do not apply because I know I told them when mine was stolen. My question is, has anyone on this forum had an MT500 stolen and reported that theft to the Police? Appr...

Romaniacs Enduro 2017

In an event that is held over 4 days, a huge BMW oilhead twin and some plasticky KTM twin that I can't identify (they all look the same to me), compete for the Iron Class. Well worth watching.

Yet more lockdown fun.

MT500, Tuareg 350, R1100GS all finished, so now time to resurrect the old R1100RS. I think this lockdown's great. I've never been busier.

Re: your first meet

I recall my first meet was at the Wye Valley. I had already acquired my MT350 but I didn't yet have an MOT for it. So I telephoned/emailed someone (Bunker?) to ask is it OK if I turn up on my R80RT/GS. I'm glad to say that was approved. We all had a very jolly weekend of mucho beer drinking and tack...

Re: More lockdown fun...

The MT500 is ready to run as is the Tuareg. All I need now is some offroad to ride them on.

Ratty old R1100RS or K100RS get the treatment after I finish the GS.
