PostSubject: hi all, from Portugal   Mon Jun 25, 2018 2:26 pm

Hi.
I'm Marco and my ride is an Intruder m800.
The bike is from 2007 and it's my joy.
I've had a few problems with it, but I ride year round, so the millage can have something to do with the issues i've benn dealing with.
One bad thing i've noticed is that it's quite difficult to get parts for it. I mean, stock parts can be accessible, despite of being pretty expensive as well (i.e. One blinker = 90€?! Come on!). Custom parts are the real pain. Even tires are not that easy to get, because the fitting, as far as I was told, are the exactly the standard measurements in custom bikes. So, it always reflects in check.
Nevertheless, I love it every day, every minute i'm on it.
Eager to see what i can learn within this forum.
Cheers!

Hi and look on ebay for parts, you'll find stuff all over the world for the m800 far cheaper & delivery is as bad as you would think, I usually get things from China in 7-10 days

If you brits could steal our sun, sand and sea, we’d be in real trouble Very Happy i’m from Moita, south river side of Lisbon. I go every year to Algarve, but to a lesser known location, Altura, near Vila Real de Santo António, just a few kms to the border with Spain.
If you come regularly to Portugal, here’s a tip in case you didn’t know: try a reservation in Tavira (near Altura). I promise you’ll love it. Even more than Lagos. Google it. Safe bet! You’re also always bem-vindo to Portugal Very Happy
