  1. the modifying legislation is to get rid of most motor vehicles and for people to but new. Imagine all the 3rd party jobs for cars and bikes going down the swanny.

  2. Brilliant reviews

  3. I am so frustrated in USA. There is no inventory of bikes at dealers. Ready to buy and cant.

  4. I'm planning a bike tour of the UK in 2023 and have some questions.
    Why does it take 8 hours to go 400 miles in the UK? I was watching one of your older videos. Do you take a lot of stops or is it just that slow?
    I'm planning on flying into London, any suggestions on where to rent bikes? I was planning on the HD there.
    Any other suggestions?

  5. hi missenden flyer. i love your videos and voice. im in the us . keep up the great job. thanks .

  6. Laughed at the Hindenburg comment 🤣

  7. Great vid, Andy! Would love to hear your thoughts on the versys 300, if you can get your hands on one! Thanks

  8. Another great video Andy , Carlos

  9. Thank you for the news, particularly the pricing. I'm looking forward to your review of the H-D Fat Bob as that one is of particular interest to me. I wonder what you will say about the tank and the exhaust as I have my opinions. IMHO I would replace the exhaust, add some storage and a windshield. 👍 However, I have my eye on a road king and of course the new Pan America

  10. Bought my Goldwing after your purchase and have never loved a bike more- now im looking for something a little lighter for in town and am on the fence on the new HD Sportster S

  11. how are you getting on woth the Goldwing? Hoping to pick up a 2018 tour in th next week, would be good to gt an update on the updates/changes you ahev made. hope to bump inot you somwtim too as your not far from me (Hampshire)
    Keep up the grat vblogs, love em!

  12. Let me start say I love your YouTube channel, have been tackling along the last 6 years now. And you my absolutely favorite YouTuber, I hope you will keep it going as long ypu have the desire to be a motorcycle expert. Yes you are, a absolutely fantastic expert.

    Now I have said that, then I wanna be disagree on some of the thing on the Suzuki. I really like the 80's look on the LCD screen and the look. The 80's and the 90's are back In fashion. 😁

    But that's it, all the other things is 5 stars.

    Yours sincerely
    The Danish Viking 🇩🇰

  13. No more trademark greeting?

    "Hey kids"..

  14. I agree with you. I still miss the original 1976 four cilinder Z650, the first motorcycle I fell in love with! Anyway, this one (not to say the Z900RS!!!) is a lovely bike.

  15. always enjoyable & the fact that you say 'in my view' or similar always makes sense as everyone is different ! different strokes for different folks !! 🙂

  16. 32:20 Not a fan of the GS it's seriously overrated, overweight, overpriced

  17. I don't think sitting on a liquid hydrogen tank is any more dangerous than sitting on highly flammable petrol?

  18. Me and my partner are writing an email to our MP about the modification rules. I'd advise everyone else to email or send a letter to their MP to get them involved in the issue, so they can can fight for us against this arbitrary planned legislation..

  19. Really sad to see comments here saying people have stopped buying MCN because of these episodes.

  20. Not sure if this is the right place but do you review kit at all? Specifically helmets and gloves.
    All your excellent videos are crystal clear as far as your voice is concerned with not a hint of wind noise.
    My wife and I have just got back into biking after a 30year lapse and although thoroughly enjoying it the noise above say 40 becomes deafening, to the point the intercom is useless!
    Our helmets are both HJC flip front.
    My major problem is finding one to fit, the one I have is 5xl I had to get it from the states !
    I’d prefer an open face lid, as I’ve seen you wear at 70mph and still talking to your audience!
    Any recommendations would be appreciated.
    Also gloves for the bigger paw that fit around the fingers and thumbs and not loose in these places but not tight to put on.

  21. I have used every generation of rechargeable batteries for four decades for hobbies. Every generation of them has advertised capacity, and useable recharge cycle numbers that are two to three times the real world performance. US cities that fast tracked electric buses found that out the hard expensive way. Not enough range to complete one route. Cracked frames from excess weight of the batteries. And, fires …

    Eight weeks instead of twelve? Deliberate I say, all part of melon Boris's commie agenda

  23. I have a bone to pick with you! You just said you love any bike with gold wheels! You said the black and yellow looks great! But you didn't like my bike! I am hurt and may never get over it! 😄😄🤪 BMW 40TH ANNIVERSARY by the way! I love wheelie good TV I was talking with Dave when I was back in Ireland last week nice guy! Keep up the good work! 👍 😁🏍💨☘

  24. For me, The standard R1250R from BMW is the best all around bike in the market today.
