    Thanks for the info guys.
  2. To buy or not to buy?

    I’m considering buying a R3 I’ve seen advertised. It’s a 2020 but only done a couple of hundred miles, the (lucky) guy has a few bikes and doesn’t use this one. A concern I have is other than it being serviced by the dealer it’s been parked in his garage for around 18 months leaving only 6...
  3. Washing precautions

    Thanks for this. I assume the small fuel tank has not been a problem for you? How has your bike been for reliability? Btw, have you had any issues with the bag zippers or water leaking into the bags?
  8. Rocket 3GT or new Goldwing bagger

    I recently sold my bike, now looking for a replacement. I want one do-it-all shaft drive bike with plenty of torque and very low centre of gravity and low seat. Use is pleasure, touring, commuting, weekdays and weekends. I do mainly solo local riding within 75miles but want to start doing some...
