You will have to return your bike to the UK and buy a Honda....

Re: For the diary. WYE VALLEY 2019

I've already got the Saturday evening booked, but I hope to take the opportunity to ride over on the Friday and join you for the evening entertainment and a beer or two then ride home on Saturday.

Re: MT 1 Big HD 0

I probably ride it too hard to get good MPG. I don't get as good as Wirralman's 75 mpg, but do get about 65 mpg with the 405 engine. I usually keep the top speed to about 55 mph, with the occasional 60. Pushing it higher will probably bring the mpg down to about 50 mpg. I know how you feel, as most...

Re: New member

Welcome orgispal. You should now be able to post what you are looking for in the "wanted" section. At least you know what you are letting yourself in for, having had previous experience.

Re: First proper ride out on my (new) MT

Re: MT350 new rider ,need a machanic

Welcome rujjeb. At least you have it running, so it's going the right way. Check the cam-belt, it can run but be rough when it's a tooth out.
