    Hi,

    I just saw that the topic lost all the photos, so I am adding a few for the new visitors on site. I do not find a button for editing old posts, is this even possible?

    In addition, some good news for my twin: the plan is to get it running again over the winter and put it back on the road by spring 2018. I mean, it still works as always, but I…[Read more]

    New season for riding already started here, but I wanted to share with you a video I made last year. It was taken on Croatian coast, from Karlobag to Stari Grad. I used a cheap SJ Cam, which was mounted on the left mirror, that is why the video is a bit “shaky”, but the overall quality of the camera is surprisingly good for the price (around 70…[Read more]

  • Hi Andy!

    Loosing the old site was my main concern because old topics are really a valuable source of information. If you manage to keep the old site alive as archive, I fully support your approach to have a fresh start.

    Cheers from sunny Ljubljana!

  • Hello!

    The new site looks great and I had no problems with registering.

    I haven’t read everything about the new site, so maybe you already answered the following question: will you transfer the topics from the old forum to the new one?

    Cheers,
    Marko

    Hi Michael,

    the case came with the bike. I admit it looks a bit unproportionate and high, but it is nice to have a lot of room for storage. The weight limit is according to instructions only 10 kg. I will go on my favourite twisty road with and without the case to see the difference in handling.

    Cheers,
    Marko

    Here it is!
    I obviously ignored most of your advices 😳  and bought a Kawasaki Versys 650 from 2011 (with ABS of course)!

    So let me try to explain myself: 
    the first reason is that unfortunately I do not have enough time to ride anyway and it doesn’t make sense to get a really big bike at this time. With this one, at least the costs for re…[Read more]

  • Marko replied to the topic The other bike in the forum Members Rides 2 years ago

    I agree with Michael on that. My previous bike was also equipped with ABS and I am quite sure that it helped me in at least two occasions. If the ABS is working properly, you do not even notice it is there until you really need it.

    My only crash with motorcycle was also in wet and the road was slippery, fortunately the speed was very low and it…[Read more]

  • Marko replied to the topic The other bike in the forum Members Rides 2 years, 1 month ago

    Well, the thing is that I need to justify the purchase of another bike to my wife…:oops:
    In that case safety is a perfect argument, so ABS is a top priority. Which means that a lot of very cool bikes (including ZRX) are not an option.

  • Marko replied to the topic The other bike in the forum Members Rides 2 years, 1 month ago

    Thanks for sharing your experience. As mentioned, I will try not to look for one model only but rather choose one that will be the best deal.

    As far as two cylinders vs. four are concerned, I also had bad experience with bike with four cylinders. Perhaps it was just bad luck, but my first big bike was Kawasaki GPZ600R. I was around 20 at the time…[Read more]

    Hi Michael,

    nice to hear from you and thanks for your input, useful as usual!

    Bandit 1250 is also on my list, the only thing that bothers me is the weight. Of course only in theory because I haven’t tried it yet. I also like to ride on twisty mountain roads and I suppose lighter bike handels better in tight curves. That’s why I was considering…[Read more]

    i think i’m going to leave it as it is.where the case painted originally !, i cant’ remember.

  • Marko replied to the topic Engine rebuild in the forum New Projects 3 years, 2 months ago

    Got the cases and head back from bead blasting. Brings them up like new, well almost.

  • Marko replied to the topic Engine rebuild in the forum New Projects 3 years, 2 months ago

    lol, and they come up real nice.

    an old washing machine motor with a polishing mop fitted saves a lot of work

  • Marko replied to the topic Engine rebuild in the forum New Projects 3 years, 2 months ago

    I’d be glad to send the covers to anyone that might want to borrow them. I keep all the plates, bungs, screws etc together so that when i need them they are all there.

  • Marko replied to the topic Engine rebuild in the forum New Projects 3 years, 2 months ago

    Engine covers are in need of some work.
