Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

My S1000R is cheaper to insure than my R1250RT, despite the RT having one more year of NCB. It dunny make no sense.

I guess it's probably the value, but still.

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Insurance... ffs.

Price to change policy to new bike was £NOPE. Cancelled it, got £21 back (they send a fucking cheque!!!), took out a new policy via a comparison site - WITH THE SAME INSURER - for about half.

Madness.

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Fuck. I've cancelled my order now. Thanks mate, you've saved me. Rev - yeah every bike I've ridden with CC does that, the R is the most sensibly calibrated in that regard, ironically, as it's fucking bonkers in every other way. The RT lurches a bit (I prefer to tweak the clutch lever to cancel it in...

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Yeah press a button on the filler cap, it pops open. Doesn't seem hard! One of the many things I grumble about motorcycling with luggage is faffing about with one key to operate the ignition two panniers and a top box, when you always want to keep them locked. Unless I plan my key based route in adv...

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Yeah it's funny that. My 1200 pops and farts a bit now it's got more miles on it, so hopefully they've not lost that, cos it's fun. Suspension wise the electronic gubbins is now fully automatic for preload, so where as I now have Soft Medium Hard over the top of Solo, Pillion, Luggage or Pillion + L...

Re: The Motorbikerist Thread

Yes, essentially. I bought it for the engine, which is a genuine step forward whilst still retaining the unique character of the boxer twin that I really like. I know a lot of people find them soulless and boring, but they're riding them wrong so there. Gone is the flat spot around 4kish, always mad...

From an uninformed and theoretical level, would leaving the rear setup a bit softer help it squat more under acceleration and give better traction? Or have I been on the internet for too long today?
