When will Youles Motorcycles re open
Is your web shop open for business
My service is due and you are closed how will this affect my warranty.
Can I come in and have a look at your used bikes.
Can I order a motorcycle on line
Ive ordered a vehicle and await delivery
Ive ordered parts and they are in your store.
We will be closed until further notice.
I know this will cause inconvenience and we sincerely apologise for this. However the PM is correct, the only way we will beat this is by drastic action. I know many of us think our motorcycle is essential and everyone has a reason why thier case is different or they are special. But in this instance I feel that if we follow the advice to the letter then in the long run we are doing the right thing for both our staff and customers.
Therefore we won’t be making special exceptions for this or that. We just want everyone to be safe.
Hopefully this will all be over soon and normality will return. This year in May we will have been open for thirty five years and we look forward to at least another thirty five years of serving the motorcyclists of Great Britain.
As we value our staff and customers we are offering to perform a “no-contact” service or repair on your motorcycle or scooter.
How It Works
Pre-arrange your service by phone or email and indicate that you do not want any contact.
Arrive at our store sit on your machine and telephone the store. Someone will come out and collect your keys without touching you and keeping as much distance as possible.
We will then telephone or email you to confirm the procedures being undertaken.
When collecting we will ask you to pay by transfer direct into our bank in advance and will bring your vehicle outside for collection.
Keeping physical contact to a minimum
A similar procedure is available for anyone ordering or collecting parts.
We have no issue with you sitting outside in or on your vehicle and us doing the legwork thus helping to keep everyone safe.
By arrangement, we will bring a bike outside and leave you to look at it with the minimum amount of contact. We can arrange delivery, also demo rides can be performed with a minimal amount of contact.
We are following Government guidelines and anyone with the slightest hint of a cold or cough is being instructed to self isolate. Please keep away if you don’t feel well but otherwise we are as always, happy to help.
Please note this years T Fest Event has now been cancelled
However our demo fleet is available for a bit of self isolation
HESSLER RALLYE TEAM BUILDS V-STROM 1050XT DESERT EXPRESS
German DR-Z, DR Big, and V-Strom specialist Hessler Rallye Team (HRT) has created this V-Strom 1050XT Desert Express. Shown for the first time at the reveal of the new-for-2020 V-Strom 1050XT at Eicma in Milan, Italy, the Desert Express is based around the chassis and V-Twin engine of Suzuki’s flagship adventure machine, but uses a host of new components manufactured in-house by HRT, plus modified suspension and aftermarket bolt-ons.
On the Subject of Motorcycle Helmets
Thought I'd catch up with the subject of helmets.
My Schuberth as used on the LDU (see below for full explanation of LDU) has been getting tired for quite sometime but its an old friend. The lining has been washed a couple of times. My inability to use a washing machine has required me to hand wash it in the sink but that's just me making sure I don't learn how to operate the white god that sits in the utility room.
It has been dropped. I do a lot of miles and as careful as I am it has had a slight amount of misuse. Its been on several flights probably covered nearly a hundred thousand miles and been used in snow and on blistering summer days. It just feels right; like the coat that you walk the dog in.
The LDU Full Write UP and Pictures
Well the time just seemed to be on fast forward and boom we are on the week of the event. I decided to work the Wednesday and leave from Manchester having arranged to meet Charlie one of my mates at Lymm truck stop at 15:00 hrs I left our Manchester store just after 14:00 hrs and arrived at Lymm at about five to three. Charlie was duly located in McDonalds stuffing his face with a burger and chips, some things just don’t change. We made good progress down to Bristol Charlie just tucked in behind me and we were soon at the motel.............
About to embark on the Longest Day Up Challenge
Well its the 19th June and I'm about to embark on the Longest Day Up Challenge. I'm both excited and nervous at the same time. Louise wished me well but I know secretly she's being strong for me and would probably much rather have me where she can see me for the next couple of days. But she knows I need to do this we have always supported each other and yes long distance motorcycle rides have there dangers but I wouldn't be me If I sat at home all the time getting old without ever taking a chance. Its who I am.
I've arranged to meet Charlie at Lymm services at 15:00 today where we will ride to Bristol stay overnight in Bristol and then set off for Lands End on Thursday. Whilst on my way to Lands End I've arranged to meet my aunty Zelda at Cornwall Services for a spot of launch. My bike might only have cost me the princely sum of £500 but to me at this point its the best bike I've ever owned. It feels good and I've every confidence in it. My doubts are in me my staying power and mental attitude. Clothing wise Im in the Triumph Malvern suit which is just amazing.
So with a bit of luck I will complete the challenge and raise a few quid for a good cause to all those that have donated so far a big thanks. I must mention in particular Suzuki Racing for supplying a whole raft of genuine parts and Cambria tyres for supplying the rubber.
Subject to technology you should be able to track my progress Friday on Facebook. But if it doesn't work I wont be stopping to fix it !!
Worlds Best SV650
The first job was to give the bike a wash, then seat off; which exposed that some little mice had made it home. With all the disused husks of thier food stashed above the back mudguard. Pressure washer out again and a quick blast soon shifted them. The bike looked so much better for a wash but I couldn't move it without knocking the brakes off with a block of wood and a hammer. So I knew they needed sorting although the fork dust seals were really perished the actual chrome stanchions looked good and the seals didn't appear to be leaking.
