  1. Transalp 700 handlebars.

    Transalp
    On longer rides, especially when loaded up, I find that my arms sometimes start acheing. I'm thinking of trying some higher bars. Any recommendations and do they affect the handling etc of the bike? Also what if any modifications will be needed to the controls etc? Thanks for any answers. Nick...
  2. Renthal Bars

    Transalp
    At my recent MOT the garage pointed out that the bards on my 1996 alp were bent and needed replacing. I guess renthals are my best option now, but looking at various forums the dakar highs seem to be the consensus, but I cant see them for sale anymore. Which renthal bars currently for sale...

  12. Neked riding. My arms hurt

    Chatter
    I've got a loan of a new F650GS whose screen is so small it might as well not be there. Trying to hold a 70-80 on the dual carriageway was a laugh as I had forgotten how much windblast you actually get without a screen. Respect to all those who tour on them. I wouldn't last 20 miles.

    The Longest Day
    OK, OK, before anyone else says it, Rovers mistook Austin for Whealie. I cannot see how. One of us is a grey-haired, speccy, ruddy-faced chap with a big nose and the other is Austin. Robster's phone camera pic of the pair of us: See. No resemblance.
  16. shwing arms!

    Africa Twin
    anybody know if the swing arm from an RD07 is the same as that off an RD03/04, I know the linkage is different but wondered if thats just the way its made rather than being a totally different spec.

    Chatter
    Heavy beasts aren't they, these Africa Twins? :shock: I've just pushed mine a mile to get it home after it conked out [1]. What's the furthest you've pushed yours? [1] Probably karma for trying to wheelie it earlier!
