Re: Insurance question

If written off I would advise to never accept 1st offer from the insurance company, they will go in low. You will need to provide evidence of why you think you should get more, i.e. for sale ads of same scooter in similar condition, etc. on the basis of it will cost you that much to replace. How can...

Re: Beedspeed.

Why would you even consider using Beedspeed when there are so many good suppliers to choose from? It's a good question, but a few times they appeared to be the only dealer with what I was looking for. Based on what I've now been hearing and reading, the claims of having certain items for sale may n...

Re: Daily touring mileage

I take what I think I need, 5 litres will cover approx 1,500 miles. Pain as it's a lot of weight but at least it gets lighter the further you travel

Re: Daily touring mileage

Re: Daily touring mileage

Around the 200 miles a day mark is comfortable if doing this on multiple consecutive days, 250 miles tops in my opinion. You could push more if only 1 or 2 days. I find you tend to average around 40mph when factoring in traffic, fuel stops, etc. so 200 miles equates to 5 hours in the saddle which is...

Re: casa 265 ST

A friend of mine also had seizure issues with the GT240 kit (actually it was the 250 version) and it turned out to be ignition related, it was advancing despite being static. Sorted that and no issues since.
