    Ta da!! 2013 BMW F800R, 16k, service history, R&G sliders, rad guard, some make windscreen, new tyres, C&S , race can, etc blah. Box is already removed. It maybe practical but looks shite and i cant get my crip leg over with it on! I think its actually more uncomfortable on my knee than the NCX!

    Tis a happy Taipan tonight!

    Its still here at present, but have many a Eastern European in negotiations...

    I did say I'd never have another BMW, but if you can blow up and rebuild a KTM for less than the price of a Ducati service I thought I may as well give the Bimmers another go!

    Happy new bmw day.

    I hope this is a good un as I really do rate them. Indicator switch is weird but you get used to it.
    Read up on abs ‘issues’. Never happened to me.

    I loved my S, but as most know, I had problems with it. The black engine is silent and a lot less vibey and hopefully doesn't suffer from the well documented problems off the grey engined versions. I rode it home from Northwood near watford and really enjoyed the ride. The pegs are too high, but i've got some lower ones, plus they came with 3 seat height options and this has the middle one, so i'll keep an eye out for a higher seat. Hopefully i'll make it work for me? If not then it'll go and i'll have scratched the itch, but at the moment i'm even up early just for a look at it!

    Nice. They are a bike I've always liked but couldn't tell you why. Like the girl you fancy but couldn't tell your mates about as she's a bit odd looking to say the least.

    TBH i'm slightly bemused by it. Mostly on the ergonomics of the seating position for you. Why you didn't buy a bike you know works in that context is truely beyond me.
