    Chatter
    New National Advert, I was sent a link to this by my paragliding buddy, watch out for him about half way through with a mad cow on board. What is happening to the National Trust?

    Transalp
    Hello, For anyone with buffeting or wind noise issues I though I would post a couple of pics of my recently purchased Tranny which I have been spending a bit of cash on to sort out the screen issues and to lower to accommodate my 29" inside leg getting both feet on floor. Firstly the screen, I...

    I am not very good at many things and writing up a ride report features pretty high on the list but I thought I’d better say a few words….make sure your PC’s are set on WAPENGLISH….

  7. Brave man - or nutcase, literally

    Chatter
    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...

    Transalp
    Hello all from new member OiloWight. Recently purchased a 700 Alp from a low milage user on our beautiful Island. I've graduated from sports tourers because I can't bend my replacement knee as far as the original. Pleased with the golden one overall and amazed that in standard trim from the...
  10. End Of An Icon

    Transalp
    While at the NEC bike show ,I went to the HONDA stand and was amazed, there was NO Transalp. The Head Honcho there told us that due to the Transalp not meeting the EU Emissions , the TRANSALP will cease production. I cant believe the bike that started the adventure touring scene will no...

  13. Auvergne 2012 chasing the usual suspects

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    we went to the Auvergne last year but due to various circumstances we missed out on most of what we’d planned to do, so we went back this year. I actually have very few pics to go with this, which is a shame cos the scenery is stunning & the roads wonderful, but this lot are not into photos &...

    Africa Twin
    May be of interest to @ owners - it's 10 years ago today I picked up my new @ from my local Honda dealer, Kent Motorcycles near Canterbury. What are my thoughts on @ ownership over this time? Well, it's been a happy relationship with the bike proving reliable and extremely durable over the...
  16. low seat option

    Transalp
    hi, after only covering just over 200 miles on my latest transalp, my last couple of bikes have had lower riding positions. I feel that the TA , is a little top heavy and seat height , well, borderline for me, ( feet down but not flat), some cambers have nearly caught me out...
  17. New exhaust & annual clean

    Africa Twin
    Finally, after 10 years & 40k miles, my @'s OE silencer fell apart due to rusting where clamped to the collector. As a replacement, and due to the OE's prohibitive cost, I bought a Remus Revolution silencer plus link pipe which seems nicely made and fits well. Being E-marked, it's road legal but...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Yesterday I received a text from Mike inviting me to join him for an evening trail ride around my local area in North Wales.

  19. Insuring my 09 Alp

    Insurance
    Well it came to renewal time once again and the squabble began between Carol Nash and Swinton over who was better. Each told me of the 'only' insurance available which was Equity Red Star etc and how the planet is mis aligned causing a 30% increase in their desire to own a Ferrari errr insurance...

    Ural / Zundapp
