  1. Thanks everyone - good advice as always will look into all the suggestions and maybe have a look if anyone back home in Blighty ships stuff out here to Greece. Thanks again everyone Mike
  2. just read fahren account of his accident and am truly glad to hear he is ok ( see topic Gutted but Glad ).It set me thinking - when I 1st got my bike I promised myself I would get the right gear to wear but never did. I live in a country where i don't even have to wear a lid but ALWAYS do. My question to you all is what is the best gear to buy for a country where the weather is regularly in the 40's (damn Hot) . What would you recommend Boots upwards remembering my pockets are not bottomless. Mike
  3. I have a XVS 650 Dragstar classic. When I apply the front brakes at slow speed they are very snatchy and I come to a stop in jerky movements. I took it to a mechanic and said I thought the brake disc needed changing - he tested the brake disc and said no it was fine. Neither myself nor the mechanic can think of what could be causing this problem - he has now said he is going to take the wheel from another dragstar and try it on my bike to see what happens. Just wondering if any of you can think of anything that could be causing this. Thanks Mike
  4. Hello mate , Welcome to the group, I am new myself and also have 650 dragstar classic - Fab. bike I'm sure you'll love it.
  5. Hope you had a great time - I have been to zakynthos many times as i used to live just over the water on the mainland. Now I have moved up to northern Greece. Next time try some of the islands up here, I think they are much nicer - try Thassos next time it's great and we could even meet up for a coffee as my wife and I are always over there. Mike
  6. Sorry to hear that mate - Glad you weren't hurt too bad.

    Just bought myself a new set of wheels - A Yamaha XVS650 classic Decided to go for the chopper look over the plastic coated ballistic missile Was a choice between this or an 883 Sportster - I think I made the right choice Mike
