    Not sure BHT - depends on where I can find accommodation but certainly the best bits of mid wales and some Snowdonia. I've got a visiting work colleague from Australia and I've promised to show him...

    When are you going Nutty? I'm heading into Wales this weekend for a blast - also struggling to find accommodation. Wales would seem to be fully booked.

    No it's not - ownership is much more than riding. If it was just about riding then I'd buy a 1200 but I choose to own an 1150:thumby:

    What's a "black box" then? New one on me. My old G\S, which I still regret selling, had a kickstart. I managed to start it a couple of times but it was always a struggle.

    I believe the very early G/S bikes only had a kick start. If you've ever tried to kick start a G/S you'll understand why all later models had an electric start fitted. The gears could be in...
