fly screen on the BMW RnineT …

I mentioned a week or two back that I had ordered a fly screen for the bike, I got round to fitting it last week and then used the bike with it on at weekend. First impressions are favorable and it does make a difference. I know there’s a pretty mixed view on fly screens, […]

bimota …

We nipped out for a leisurely evening drive earlier this week and stopped off at a Cheshire pub, as we were leaving we saw an open garage in the pub grounds (which I think belongs to the landlord), once I had spotted a couple of bikes we wandered over for a quick look and a […]

scootering it’s not my cup of tea but …

I was out for a few hours at weekend on one of my bikes – the Kawasaki Vulcan 650S, it makes a nice change from the other bikes and once you’ve got accustomed to the forward foot controls it’s actually pretty good and quite a lot of fun, especially when the weather is as glorious […]

short scotland trip, part two …

After staying overnight in Moffat I decided that I would head up the A701, it;s the road that runs out of Moffat in the direction of Edinburgh. By any measure it’s a fine road and is known as the Beef Tub. To be more precise the area that the A701 runs though is known as […]

short scotland trip, part one …

This week I had a couple of days spare and decided it was an ideal opportunity to have a ride up to Moffat in Scotland. The weather looked decent enough and the prospect of doing a couple of my favorite UK roads on the BMW was just too much to resist. I headed off from […]

Warm sunshine, blue sky and a few hours to spare made for an ideal recipe to roll the Moto Guzzi V7 out of the garage yesterday and to head out for a coffee. Other afternoon commitments meant that I didn’t have a full day – but I was happy enough with the few hours I […]

not an RnineT, but you can see the heritage …

You never quite know what you are going to stumble on, and yesterday evening as I was returning from a walk I saw a couple pulling up outside their home pulling a trailer on the back of their 4×4 – and on that trailer was an intriguing old bike. Perhaps not surprisingly and like most […]

RnineT, different angles …

I was out and about yesterday, enjoying another day in the sunshine, and without exception every time I get off the RnineT my eyes are drawn to it, perhaps more so than any other bike I have ever owned. If you read my Blog posts you will know I have posted about the bike before, […]

motorrad luggage on the RnineT …

Back in April I wrote about sorting luggage out for my BMW RnineT – if you missed that post you can read it here. At that time I hadn’t actually got round to fitting on the bike, but with a European trip looming I thought I best give it a try, which is exactly what […]
