    France - Crit D'Air Emissions Certificates

    Anyone travelling through France, whose route takes them into/near Paris, Grenoble or Lyon needs to aquaint themselves with the new French LEZ rules.

    Free Valve Technology

    Has anyone seen this vid by Koenigsegg. Doesn't delve deep, for obvious reasons, but interesting tech I thought. Wouldn't it be nice to do away with the cams/cam chain. I'm not clear about valve clearance issues, could be automated...

    President Elect Trump

    Congratulations to Donald Trump, indeed the whole Trump Team. Despite the problems during her campaign, I had Hillary down to win, but my wife was spot on. She reckoned, like we saw with Brexit over here, that the disadvantaged folk in the 'Rust Belt' coupled with a disconnect in Florida, would...

    Newbie from Bedfordshire

    Collected my new ride yesterday, an ex-demo March 2014 ZE, from Laguna Maidstone. Traded in my 2012 Versys1000 - nice enough bike, but front end always a bit vague for my taste, although better with Metz Z8s. Good ride back around the M25, with SWMBO on the pillion & around 20 miles of slow...
