    Converting a 690 as a proper offroad tool.

    I was in the same boat 2 years ago, had to decide between a 500 and the 690. In the end I ended up with the 690. As this buy was to be used as a "hooligan mode" off-road adventure weapon only. Neither of the bikes are built (or maybe ones ass isn't) for the long road sections to get to where...

    ELM327 Bluetooth diagnostic scanner jobbie

    Just remember!!!!!!! You plug it into the OBD port on the vehicle. It will NOT give you all the data that you get from the OE tech tools as the CANBUS available to you on the OBD CANBUS is a hugely watered down version of the vehicle backbone CANBUS.

    Motorcycle backpacks

    Just a bastard to get on and off the bike with the second bag on especially if you stopped the bike on uneven soft terrain.

    Satellite internet - what can be expected

    yes, with 2 earth stations. If you use certain sites a lot they cash the back end data making your "landing response" time faster and the link gets established faster. You can also run Voice over IP on the service. this will enable you to make phone calls via satellite data. Damn, I had to stop...

    Satellite internet - what can be expected

    I used to be involved with the rollout and installer training of the VOX Yahclick service. It was a market leading product at the time.

    As far as I know those ramps are specked for a 100kg off road bike. It will not last if you use it for a bigger bike

    Easy Loader type trailer. Pros and cons? Who makes the best?

    The 2M Lazy Loader is one of the best, if not the best choice in bike trailers. I have owned a normal flatbed trailer before I upgraded to the Lazy loader. Yes the Lazy Loader is i bit heavier but it is so much stronger and once it is rolling behind the tow vehicle you don't feel it and it it...
