  1. Africa Twin
    Does anybody know who owned her before me,just picked her up from a dealers in Darwen this afternoon. She's got an XRV sticker on her. Any info on her would be great.
  2. Bodgers Corner
    Found a lovely sample of mesh in a skip – stainless 316 – thought itd make a nice headlight grill! Had a few issues fitting it since I have a bolt missing under the fairing so tapped a couple of holes in the splashguard under the nose and used threaded bars for bottom supports (not the most...
  3. Africa Twin
    Hey there guys, Its now available the final video from the "duel of the beasts", the Africa Twin Boano vs. Africa Twin Marathon, the most well prepared Africa Twins in Portugal. You can see the whole report in our blog www.emazimute.blogspot.com Here is the video, and a few pics so you...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...
  5. Transalp
    Been running about for about 1000 miles with Fuel Exhaust fitted - blue titanium effect - on the 700, also blue. My observations With baffle removed, simply a superb sound - especially on the overrun and uphill. Not that loud either, but makes it sound much more purposeful. Baffle easy to...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Love my dommie but was always a bit disappointed by it's inability to take a passenger in comfort ( both for the rider and the passenger ). It appeared to me that the main problem was the shortness and angle of the seat so this is what i bodged together .Although some may laugh ...it really...
  7. Chatter
    Can someone explain to me, because they drive me crazy. Lots of 4 x 4s have what looks like two sets of lights in a great position about half way up the back of them. But, when you are behind them, the rear lights are actually down by the bumper!!!!! So, when there is a 4 x 4 one car ahead, it...

    Straight from the Honda press release (sorry bit of a rush) (pics at the end) The Crossrunner represents the best aspects of two separate biking genres: the flexibility and exciting attitude of a Naked performance machine with the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi, I made some aesthetic improvements to my bike, adding an upper fairing protection like the R1200 GS, redundant as it was, it proved to be quite useful in pressing the nose down and better tracsion on front wheel. Not to mention the hot F-4 Phatom looks (I think biking is 40% fantasy:))...
  10. Transalp
    Well, I wanted to fit my old topcase (XL125V times, 2005) on my new XL700V (until the OEM 45 lt topbox is funded :) ). Wanting to avoid the aftermarket plates due to cost (starting from € 40,00) and mainly aesthetics (they place the topcase 10 - 20 mm above the rear carrier), here's my DIY...
  11. Africa Twin
    Hello Guys, A few years ago when the ATIC email system was still working I believe someone sent a post on an Africa Twin with dual exhausts, but there was little or no information about it. Has anyone here ever seen or attempted to do this? I am mostly concerned with the aesthetics, but wouald...
  12. Varadero
    Now, I might struggle to find somewhere to mount my cruiser pegs without crashbars but I think bungs would be more aesthetically pleasing! Now I've seen bikes go along the road with bars, and apart from the bars getting severe scratches and minor damage they're usually ridable after. Crash...
  13. Africa Twin
    After deciding that the SW-Motech pannier frames didn't meet my requirements (now for sale here), I decided to bite the bullet and go for the hefty Touratech frames. I telephoned TT UK on Monday 4th August to be told that they had none in stock, but they could order them from TT Germany and...
  14. Varadero
    Took my Vara to work today instead of the TA, and I have to say it is a very noisy bike. I thought the TA was quite noisy but its been 3 weeks since I rode the vara and I had forgotten how noisy it is. I have got the standard screen on, on its lowest setting as I found that was least...

  16. Africa Twin
    Got my first A-Twin at the New Year's Eve, and already one headlight has 2 holes in it. Got tired of all the rocks damaging my bike, so I made this protector. Not sure how the one from Touratech looks or how much it cost, but this one saved me (n+1) times, and it cost me about 2-3 pounds. Just...
  17. Transalp
    OK all, some of you have fitted 'high capacity reservoirs', chopped the cat, some have even gone to rejetting.... Now it's time to up the ante :iconbiggrin: I was baulking at buying a sump protector, partially for financial reasons, partly for aesthetics - I want the bike to look fairly...

One of which will be in Bognor Regis, West Sussex and the other will be in Whiteley which is smack bang between Portsmouth and Southampton. The name of our company is Laser Treatments Ltd We have spent over...
