    Why is it that I run into ALL the student drivers and pensioners in the area on the one night when I'm nursing the bike home on a one-strand clutch cable that won't quite disengage the clutch anymore? Never ceases to amaze me how spooked some people seem to get from something as simple as a...

    Dakar 2011 entries are just about to open in the next few days so I thought this would be a good time to post. No major changes to rules in 2011, the progression to smaller engines, targeted checkpoints and so on is moving ahead.... the official pre-press blurb for anyone interested. An...

    Folks As this forum never ceases to amaze me, I thought I'd ask here before buying one on eBay. I'm after a Nokia 6301. It must be this model. These are quite old now, so have usually been superceded with an upgrade, so if you have one in a drawer gathering dust, I'm interested...

    When reading (and posting) on Steve R's thread "Pretty Pretty Bike" it got me thinking about all the cheap reliable bikes there have been that just never - ever seemed to break down. My first experience of this was an old CD175 of approx 1972 vintage that just was so simple (twin pot, single...

    I've been logging in and out of this splendid website for quite a long time and it never fails to amaze me how wonderful our chosen steeds are.
