    Guzzi V85 test ride

    So I went on a date with a young Italian thing this morning. The S10 didn't mind coz the S10 still wins hands down for the kind of riding I do... BUT..the Guzzi is one of the best looking bikes I've seen for a long time. Really, really pretty. Super smooth gearbox/clutch, nice sound, good...

    Bar End Weights

    Hi Folks. Lost one of my bar end weights on the commute home tonight. No idea where it fell off so there's no chance of finding it. A quick google shows that a new one plus bolt and collar is about £39 in uk. That seems pricey to me but I guess I have no choice. Are there any aftermarket ones...

    Motorcycle camcorders UK

    Dear all. Apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I'm thinking of getting a camcorder for the bike purely for the time when someone hits me! I'm not planning on making movies. Several shops I've been into seem to recommend the Drift GhostX. Whilst I'm not totally averse to spending...

    Merry Christmas from UK

    Merry Christmas everyone. I'm constantly in awe of all the S10 knowledge you guys have and Im constantly jealous of some of the environments you have to ride in (especially in USA).

    ECU + ignition barrel/imobiliser

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think we are all agreed that the ignition barrel cannot be seperated from the imobiliser (the black item that piggybacks the ignition barrel. I think I'm also correct in saying that the imobiliser and ECU are paired, meaning that if one tried to connect someone...

    Givi PL2119 without rear seat/grab handles

    Hi folks. I think I already know the answer to this but confirmation would be fab. Am I correct in thinking the Givi PL2119 pannier racks only work WITH the passenger grab handles? I like to use my bike without rear seat and without passenger grab handles to get a lower and level storage space...

    Cold hip/S10 aerodynamics?

    OK. Strange question but I'm curious if anyone else notices this. I've done lots of miles over the years and well over 100,000 miles on an S10 and every winter in the uk I notice my right hip getting cold. Left hip is fine. I used to notice it on my old ST1300 as well but not as much. I wonder...

    Dear all. I might be in Abu Dhabi for a few days in late November and would LOVE to go for a ride in the desert. Does anyone know if there are any guided ride outs including bike hire/kit?? I've googled it and didn't get much luck. One guy (Pavel?) got rave reviews for his tours but all the...

    Hi folks. I recently bought a Suzuki T500 1972 model (mid life crisis and I loved the colour). is the question. The airbox to carb rubber has gone hard and doesn't fit properly. I'm thinking about putting a couple of these on (see the link). One guy I chatted too thought it was a bad...

    Front discs

    Hi folks. It's time to change my front discs. It seems that S10 discs are considerably more expensive than, for example R1 discs. (More aftermarket choices for R1 etc). Do any of you know if there is a bike (R1?) that uses the same size discs as on a 2011 S10? Thanks in advance for any help.
