Honda has recalled 29,232 motorcycles in Japan over a faulty starter switch which could result in an engine stall, or worse, a fire.

The recall, which spans 37 different 2013-2015 models, has been put into place due to some starter magnetic switches not receiving proper waterproofing, resulting in potential damage to the fuse and wiring harness.

Although the recall currently only affects Hondas in the Japanese market, there’s good chance that the faulty switch has made its way onto bikes in other markets, including the UK.

Here is the full list of recalled bikes:

Be a better rider in 2014

Galloway Motorcycles  wrote on January 22nd, 2014

Right now starting off the New Year may not be best on a bike – a jet ski maybe but two wheels?  However when the rain ends it’s probably time to look at your riding and maybe consider a refresh ready for the year ahead.  If you’re a sporty person you’ll probably start your season with a coaching session or two.  But for many it seems taking a lesson to brush up on your riding skills is something that is often over looked.  And it really shouldn't be. Aside from the fact that you will definitely be a safer rider as a result of ironing out those little bad habits you'll also importantly actually enjoy your riding more.  Who after improving their long iron play doesn't enjoy their golf more? Or if you were to hit more aces wouldn't you feel better about your tennis game?  It's no different on two wheels so we've put together a list of our favourite ways to get better on two wheels just for you.



 

Road Based

 

There are obviously hundreds of qualified training schools which will offer advanced riding courses but how do you know what you need to focus on?  Here is where BikeSafe comes in.  BikeSafe is a national scheme run by the Police which offers a days assessment of your riding focusing on real world scenarios and, at the end, gives you an honest opinion of what you need to focus on to become a safer and better rider.  You can see more at their website which is www.bikesafe.co.uk.  If you are a scooter rider in London there is also a ScooterSafe scheme aimed purely at your kind of riding so don't feel just because you haven't got gears you have to miss out! After completing your assessment it's then off to get further instruction on the areas which need it through one of the following organizations; The IAM, RoSPA or ERS.  Each offers courses, which will improve skills so you can get more out of your machine.  Ultimately that's what we all want isn't it?  





 

Track Based 
If you want to push your limits a little more and really find out what your bike can do then a track day may be the thing for you.  There are many schools offering everything from basic race skills to almost one on one instruction.
Our two favorites are the California Superbike School and the Honda Ron Haslam Race School.  The CSS offers a step-by-step method of rider training focusing on the 'art' of cornering.  All lessons are technique oriented with both classroom, off track and on track drills to put in practice what's been taught in the class. Their teachings will have you re-evaluating what you think you know about how to go round corners on your bike. After just the first days training you will be astounded at how much you've learnt and also how much of it can be put into practice to improve your everyday riding.  Well worth checking out. The Honda Ron Haslam School offers you the experience of riding on the famous Donington Park GP circuit, an introduction to high performance bikes if you have the required experience and the opportunity to improve your skills and understand the finer points of track riding. Expert tuition with experienced instructors will give you a valuable, enjoyable and memorable time which will leave you having improved your riding skills.  





 

Off Road 
It’s often been said that if you want to improve your road riding then get off road and the reason for this is that your bike will move around underneath you - once you are comfortable with this then you'll be able to react better if it happens on the road. Simple, and there's no shortage of off road schools to choose from.  Anything from circuit based schools like Yamaha's Off Road School run by ex GP rider Barry Johnson and Kawasaki's School run by enduro champ Mick Extance to trail riding enduro schools like the fabulous Wheeldon Off Road Centre or the KTM school run by multiple enduro and supermoto champion Ady Smith.
With so many options to choose from, 2014 is the year we all get our riding up a level and enjoy it even more.

New BMW programming equipment arrived at Galloway Motorcycles. 

On April 13th 2014 Andy will be undertaking his greatest challenge yet by running the London Marathon; 26.2 miles of pain. Having just run his first 5k after Christmas, he can honestly say this will not be an easy road. But money to this charity is a great motivator. After he became an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust he saw with his own eyes and met some of the young people that have turned there life around and gone on to do great thing from the help of the princes trust with the money that is donated.

 

So please, dig deep and donate, just click on the just giving image and follow the link. Big Thank you.

"The Prince's Trust is a charity in the United Kingdom founded in 1976 by Charles, Prince of Wales to help young people."

The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. It supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.

 

The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilize their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work.

 

Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped 750,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day.
