» Irish Bike Prices ?
Apr 02, 2021 - 12:46 PM - by Holy Moly
We'll, 3 months into the brave next world of Brexit, have Irish bike Prices firmed or flopped ?
I see pandemic payments in the US has sent everyone into a buying frenzy with stupid prices achieved on toys (especially off road bikes) and trucks.
I haven't been keeping an eye on the market here, but as a greedy fecker I have a number of bikes I think I want to shift on, wondering when the timing might be right.

Apr 01, 2021 - 11:15 AM - by faz1
Mate picked up an old Yam as per pick below, RD model, he's not really into bikes, just wanted an older bike to go on sunday spins. Think he got it fairly cheap and is going to spend a few quid on the cosmetics as it's a bit rough round the edges but seems to run great. He may want to sell it later in the summer, we don't know alot about them, question is are they easy to sell on and worth much if he wants to sell it on ?

I was on about buying new but realistically it's not a sensible decision for me at the moment.

I managed to wrangle this off my ol fella. 06 and 22k kms on the clock. Full luggage and wings.. a decent price too so we wouldn't fall out

And of course she broke down already

Reading the blurb..... Dunlop claim near Hyporsport tyre performance but I would worry that there is an awful lot of thread blocks to be moving around under a heavy bike (and a very heavy rider)

The show is confirmed/planned to go ahead for 9th and 10th October.

Hopefully we will be long vaccinated by then but the clearing customs might be fun on the way back. Will have to get some fireworks to divert their attention.

The 'April' show is on 3rd and 4th July, a bit early for us, unless you know someone on the Board of the Beacon Hospital.

Not sure if this is the right section but I'm looking at a bike in Spain. Its uk registered but has been in Spain since mid 2019 in the owners holiday home.

My question is, does the vat and vrt go down the route of the new brexit rules or due to it being exported from the uk since pre brexit do the old rules apply, of just the normal vrt charges?

AXA are the underwriters of Principal, and I think the only underwriters Principal have in the ROI, which made me smile when I asked them to see of they could do better on my renewal quotation.

Hey all, anyone have any experience on one of these? Had a bit of hassle this year with the current and potential new bike and both have dealers in either Dublin or further away.
Closer to home is BMW or Honda CBR650 but really not that interested in the Honda.

Mar 18, 2021 - 12:10 PM - by KTMkenny
Hi. After advise.

The givi rack gives my bike zero visibility of the tail light from the side.
I ride to night shift daily . I would feel abit safer if I was more visible.

I put these side makers on. But they look poxy. I want a more attractive

Any suggestions? What are those chinese led strips like?

Givi do stop light kist for the v46 box but its either brake OR tail not both. ANd im not sure they cure the side view problem. as they are higher than cagers line of sight.

» Michael Dunlop finishes 11th on Daytona 200 debut
Mar 18, 2021 - 11:51 AM - by Admin
Northern Ireland's Michael Dunlop has finished 11th on his first appearance at the Daytona 200 event in Florida.



The Ballymoney rider had qualified 21st on the grid on his Kawasaki ZX6 636 after struggling with bike issues and having limited track time.

The 31-year-old 19-time Isle of Man TT winner had occupied ninth place in the race with five laps of the 57 to go.

Dunlop came home 55 seconds behind winner Brandon Paasch, with Sean Dylan Kelly 0.030 adrift in second place.

The original start of the race at the Daytona International Speedway saw Dunlop hold... [Read More]

Hows it going lads? I want to get a set of tyres for a CBR600 and cant decide what to go for. Itll be used on road and track with maybe slightly more use on track. I was looking at something like Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa 2s Dunlop SportSmart TTs or Michelin Power GPs or something along those lines. Has anybody used any of those and what are they like? Or is there anything I havent listed that would be worth taking a look at? Thanks!

» Leathers - one piece v two piece
Mar 13, 2021 - 8:36 PM - by goose81
Hey,

Just wanted people's thought on one piece v two piece leathers?

I've never had leathers always used texting gear but I'm toying with the idea of getting some.

Is there a difference between the fit of the two? I'm not doing trackdays atm but might so some in the future but if I got some but mainly they would be worn when going for a spin.

Are they even needed for road use is another question I have, do they offer much more protection?

I got hit at slow speed last year and broke my elbow amongst other injuries simply because the hard foam in my textile jacket moved when I fell because the fit wasn't tight enough and it simply moved out of position and rode across my arm, this is one of the reasons I'm thinking... [Read More]
