Hello From The Isle Of Skye

Discussion in 'Newbies Hangout' started by Mark MacPherson, Dec 2, 2019.

  1. Hi I’m new to road bikes and not had my license long. I have a 796 Hypermotard and I am looking for some parts for it. If any one is breaking one in the uk hit me up. Cheers.

  20. Welcome Mark, Ironically when I did a tour of west Scotland and Ireland one September, many moons ago, only FortBill & Skye were dry enough to camp - everywhere else it pished down :eek:
