    2000 Honda Transalp XL650V owned by me since 2005. I have moved around a lot in those 11 years so the bike spent long periods in storage but always dry and undercover. It was purchased in Holland and imported by me so a full european spec model. Headlight passes MOT no problem and has been...
  2. CRF - New Forum!
    Hi, new to the Forum. I have always ridden large touring bikes but have recently added a CRF250L for small backroads riding. I don't want to ride off road, just the small tarmac tracks that wind over moors and Dales. The CRF has the stock knobbly tyres and I don't feel secure cornering on tarmac...
  3. XL
    Hi all, got a spare set of wheels for my XL500s and am thinking about getting a spare set made up with new spokes and rims that will take a better selection of tyres as the front one being a 23 inch is difficult to get a decent tyre for. Can anyone recommend rim sizes that would take road biased...

    I guess some of You Guys knows this already, but it's new at least to me. Triumph has added two new premium models to their already excellent 2015 Tiger 800 range. The XR and XRx have been joined by an XRT while the XC and XCx now have an XCA as their stable mate, resulting in a total of six...
  5. Transalp
    Hi just moved back to the UK and am looking for a new bike. Previously had a few adventure bikes including KTM Adventures and BMW GS's but as circumstances have changed am looking for an alternative We have just had a baby so my riding is limited and therefore dont want huge sums of cash tied...
  6. Transalp
    Guys... I don't want to start a war or anything and I know the 1200gs is a better specified bike but my mate loaned me his for a ride this am and guess what, I prefer my 650v.... We were doing countrylanes and gravel paths so on a motorway I might change opinion but my alp is smoother...
  7. For Sale / Wanted
    Im coming home................... Wanted, Africa Twin. Cheap as possible, low miles as possible and is grade A condition. Asking too much? OK.... this is going to be a second bike which only will be used a few times a year (Ive got a 450 Enduro for playing on, just want something more...
  8. Transalp
    Hi all, apologies if this is the wrong section. I had a browse around and couldn't see anything saying otherwise. But basically I bought an XL to last me for a year, it has. And now I'm putting it up for spares as I figure it's a better way to sell it with no MOT and SORN Host of pictures...
  9. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    I know this has all been discussed before, at great length & that there are no definitive answers but; I've been using anakees on my tralp for the last 300 odd years... ok I exaggerate but for as long as I can remember anyway...I now need to replace both hoops but can't get anakees (nobody...

    The free Bristol Motorcycle show is on Saturday 17 August just off the Centre, see - The Bristol Bike Show tends to be custom biased but generally worth a visit. if partners/family/you bored with bikes do some Gromits Gromit Unleashed | Trail many within a short distance of the show. Just done...
  11. XL
    What are the options for off-road biased tyres for my XL600? 90/90 - 21" front 130/80 - 17" rear (which seems to be the limiting factor) Conti TKC80's Pirelli MT21's Both of which I've used before on my AT and XT250 respectively. What else is out there? I'm favouring TKC's at the moment.

  14. Transalp
    Anyone been trying out the michelin's new Anakee 3 yet? I've just bought a new rear anakee 2 and put in storage as I noticed they seem to be getting increasingly harder to find since the launch of its replacement. I'm not convinced that the Anakee 3 is a true dual purpose tyre but looks a...

    As I'll be working in Austria for the summer, and they tend to frown on people just going offroad on a whim, I'm thinking of something more road biased that can eat up the miles... I've been spoilt working in Turkey and being able to just pick a track and go and explore! I've got all of...
  16. Transalp
    Hi All, I am just trying to gauge what interest their would be in my Transalp. I am biased but I do not believe there will be a more original unrestored Transalp anywhere. I got the bike from a friend of mine 4 years who was the first owner and only rode it for a year before parking it...
  17. Africa Twin
    Hi all merry christmas, I am getting through my conti tyres on my at (specially the rear) as I am really only going to ride on the road, can you offer advice on some road biased tyres that will perform but also look ok on my AT. CHEERS.
  18. Africa Twin
    I get the feeling this might have been asked somewhere before but can't seem to find an exact answer. I need a new set of tyres. After reading lots of opinions/reviews I'm thinking of giving the michellin Anakee 2's a try. Problem is, I don't think they do them in 130/90/17 for the rear like...

    Me and Hudders decided to meet up at Jellys with the DR's and explorer some of the lanes the Peak District have to offer Once we had had our fill of Julies epic breakfast we set about the task in hand. I was more than a little nervous, partly due to my lack of off road ability and partly due to...

    .....my RD07a is on the original suspension from new, but i'm thinking of improving things. i'm off to morocco near the end of october, but most of the riding will be road biased with a bit of offroading thrown in for good measure !! my question is this,....is it worth spending the money on...
