says the bloke still riding the same bike after 20yrs

If it was a new bike 20 years ago... actually, suspension and brakes have been pretty good (at the high end) since the mid-1980's.

About time we had a BTSport coverage poll

@ianh said:

I was most aggrieved to received an email from BT yesterday.
Whilst the sums involved are relatively modest (for now) it still means i will have to pay £60 per year that i had not expected.

I have advised Ofcom of my concerns, whilst they dont deal with individual cases, i do think that their widespread and prolonged advertising of "free" motogp coverage was misleading could be seen as obtaining money by deception, ie tountamount to fraud.
Complaints now sent to BT and Ofcom and letter to MCN editor. Doubt it will get anywhere but good to vent!

From what I can tell, IF there is "small print" that facilitates this change, the term itself would fall under the UNFAIR CONTRACT TERMS ACT <- doubtless plenty of info on the WWW on this... And if the term is unfair/a contravention of Contract Law, the resulting advantage certainly is!!
( See above: I cut an paste the reply I had from CAB in this thread ^^^)

Good to see that you've escalated your own case; for my part, I've contacted Trading Standards (via CAB) - but I will take a pointer from you and refer to OfCom too!

The more people that voice their opinions on this, the better!

New Rider with Questions

Well let's be honest, I won't be hitting those speeds haha.

Anyway just tested a 2012 ER6f and have to say it was vibrating quite a bit round 55+ but settled out around 70. Enjoyed it.

Also got to try out a 2015 Versys 650 and have to be honest I felt that was a great bike. It was a bit higher, heavier but felt like it as more presence on the road. Not as sporty looking as other bikes obviously but I did enjoy it a lot.

Going to read some reviews and make a decision Monday I reckon.

Test ride both during torrential rain/thinder - couldn't have picked a worse day of I tried!!

How to get the best deal on a new bike

@Pascal - This is only in your favor if your time is worth little - faffing about for multiple dealer visits while you could have being doing something productive or even enjoyable negates the savings.
