    BMW
    I finally found a dry day and some time to bugger off and get the test ride on a 800GS in Wolverhampton I have had earmarked for 2 weeks, I did about 45-50 miles of M/way, Fast A road, country windy, and too much town work. Cracking sunny day too :-D First impression after the Vara, was that I...

    Africa Twin
    Background: In 2007 I was lucky enough to find a 1988 XRV650 in Oregon, USA with ~43k km on the clock.

    Africa Twin

  8. panniers crashbars and other things i did

    Africa Twin
    thought i would just add a few picks of what i did luggage wise and lessons if learnt on my last coast to coast trip. the trip itself was not seriously hard-core, but dealing with weight solo on and especially ofroad is always a challenge and of coarse a serious handicap. all im busy doing is...

  12. carrying photography stuff on the bike

    Photography
    Ok, how do you transport your cameras on the bike, I would like to have your input given that 1. bikes vibrate more than cars 2. limited space (my full kit is 15kg and fits in a trekking backpack) it is just fantastic to combine both pleasures i.e. ride the alp to a scenic spot, stop take...

  17. Top Box

    Transalp
    I would like a top box for my '09 TA XL700V and wondered if anyone has any experience and/or preferences with a particular brand. My last bike has side cases but I found these slowed my commute so I only put them on when touring so hardly got used. I don't really like to but I now use a...
  18. Wind & Weave

    Africa Twin
    I have recently acquired a 1997 AT which is a great bike except...I find that when riding it fully loaded with Givi top box & panniers, it develops a pretty alarming weave, especially in high winds (60 mph+). Have had suspension & bushes checked & all seems fine. My bike shop suggests...
