Bike shipping from Cyprus

Bike shipping from Cyprus

Long time not on here but might somebody knows something about a Shipping Company who could ship a motorbike from Cyprus to UK or Ireland the better.

I tried a few but quotes were coming back close to a sum where I’d rater wait for another bike to come up for sale closer to home.


Any ideas?

Modest mod and its effect on insurance

Modest mod and its effect on insurance

When I came back to biking after a few years recently, one of the not-so-welcome novelties I encountered was the massive number of questions I faced when taking out insurance, along with the generally pfo tone of insurers.


With a new bike, I was happy to say that it had no mods and move on to the next part of the interrogation. Now I want to put in this booster plug (https://accessories.hitchcocksmotorcycles.com/41128) with the aim of enriching the fuel mix at low revs. Apparently it gives a smoother performance, without increasing overall power characteristics, as per a full efi unit.


I’m hesitating because I don’t know what this will do to my premium, or even if the insurer will refuse to cover me, as they certainly seem to have a take-it-or-leave-it approach.:unsure2:


Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on this?

Stickers or paint?

Stickers or paint?

It’s that time of year again where I treat myself to some bike related opulence.

Last year I got a seat cowl for the bike, it tidies up the shape nicely. Alas, it’s plain black plastic so two issues for me.


(1) It’s prone to scratches.

(2) It’s dull.


I was going to buy one of these stickers to protect and brighten it up a bit:

But almost £30 sterling for a fucking sticker??? (when P&P is added)

Now I’m wondering if I’d be better off trying to get the cowl painted? Anyone recommend someone that can put this onto the cowl and match the paint to the original on the bike?
