    Re: Convince me please

    If you do go HP4 then I'd choose the Carbon version but as I stated above make sure it has all the OE parts. The cost to replace HP4 OE items is eye wateringly expensive

    Re: First bike trackday? (tuition??)

    I'll guess what they will tell you
    Trust the electronics
    Brake a bit later
    Accelerate as soon as you see the exit
    Hang off a bit more
    Hold the bars loosely and alter your grip to allow you to...

    The RST air bag suit is good. I have a jacket for the road, and the pro series for track use. The Pro series is a snug fit when compared to a road going 1 piece suit. I have the RST non airbag...

    Re: My new Gen3

    Cruise control still superfluous. OK if you're sat in the inside lane doing 65mph. But who the heck buys an S1000RR to do that ????

    My new Gen3

    Having sorted out the issues with Williams BMW Manchester and my HP4, I decided an upgrade was required. Although the HP4 was a fantastic bike, I had sort of fallen out of love with it. Although it...

    Absolutely didn't accept it. More on the story to follow once it's all resolved. To say I'm less than happy with Williams BMW Manchester is an understatement

    Re: Front Fork Issue (Gen4 owners)

    A slightly different angle, but my HP4 went in for a major service at Williams BMW Manchester. It went in without a clunk, had the fork oil changed and it came out with a clunk and an MOT. They all...

    Re: What chain/dislock combo do you have?

    It weighs a ton. Even threading it through each wheel is difficult. It's mighty expensive, but as I lock 4 bikes with it, cost per bike is reasonable
