  1. Transalp 650 Centre Stand - for sale

    Hope this is allowed and in the right place, if not apologies. I don't think it's original Honda - it says darkojak on a sticker on it. May well fit a 700 as well going by any pictures I've seen. It's a sturdy bit of kit and in great order. Just giving forum members a chance before I stick on...
  2. XL125V rally, A1 11 kW

    Hello, I want to build a rally bike. It shud look something like crf 450 rally or africa twin with hrc colors. I would like a 2 stroke bike, but I'm not allowed to drive more than 11 kW until I'm 18. At first i'm trying to find a good varadero and change the subframe and seat from a motocross...
  3. Fuel cans on a ferry

    I'm off to France and Spain later in the year and I intend to carry a spare fuel can (Fuel Friend 2l) with me for just in case. Looking at some of the ferry websites they seem to state that petrol cans either empty or full are not allowed. I'm sure that a lot on here have gone abroad with spare...
  4. Wanted: RD07 Headlight Cowl Holder

Its the mini subframe that attaches to the main frame and holds the headlight and the...

    I might be taking part in an off road (not extreme!) nav challenge wing-ding in a few weeks and gps not allowed. I could just follow my mate juan like i did last time or i could help with the nav. I found an old thread on here about home made roadbooks but wondered if the diy technology has...

  14. Brave man - or nutcase, literally

    I never cease to be amazed at some of the things i read in papers, i know the majority is tripe and rubbish created to boost sale's but this is true and bewildering. The question is should people with mental health be allowed out of secure wards? especially if they are a danger to themselves or...

  16. Thatcher moaners...

    How many more muppets on Facebook are going to state that anyone who wasn’t born, or was kid at the time of Thatcher, doesn’t, or shouldn’t have an opinion on her? Did her legacy simply stop the moment she ceased to be PM? I think not… I’ll be forever grateful to Churchill and the men and...

    Well, thought I'd put this in here not Racing, as more folks should see it! I'm off on a bike in 2014, just wondering if anyone's done it, and could give a few pointers! It's been a dream of mine since 2006, life has finally allowed me to bash it hard enough...

  20. Looking for forest type roads in Austria

    Hi List, I hope I am posting this in the right goes. I am living in Burghausen, Germany, due east of Munich on the German/Austrian border. I really like riding (my Transalp) through woods and forests. Dirt roads are fine but the Transalp is no dirt bike:) I was hoping someone...
