    Last week, I was in the Picos. Don't get too jealous, though - i was in the car. Nevertheless, some superb roads and scenery. And while in Potes, I saw this Dominator. We travelled on the Plymouth - Santander ferry .... it's a 20ish hour journey but comfortable, and judging by the...
  4. Transalp
    Well I had to do a couple of chores for the wife, needed to pick some work up from Llanfairfechan Hospital and from Glyndwr University in Wrexham. So I thought what better way to do it than to to it on the bike. It was a great day out, but it was cold! Very cold! I lost count of the number of...

  6. Transalp
    Hi to all! Have been toying with the idea of swapping my 650 with a 2015 NC750X. It's new but it's not the latest model. My main concern is the EFI... what's it like on low throttle openings? I've also heard many bikers complain that throttle may be snatchy / jerky when opening from closed...

  12. Clothing
    I was one of the later people to buy made-to-measure leathers from John Richardson of BTK before he closed the business. The CE armour that was supplied (shoulders, elbows, hips and knees) was flat and not terribly form-fitting egg-shaped panels of squidgy rubber that is hard if you jab at it...
  13. XL
    Hi there, i've recently started the restoration of a 1976 Honda XL125, and the engine is missing the points and the points plate and housing etc, as these parts were taken by the previous owner to use in another engine. I'm wondering what the best way of making an electrical system would be...

    So folks How many of the AT's are locked away for the sunny spring days? How many are working through the winter? A can of WD40 and off you go! I wouldn't consider myself a full on all year biker but I do ride through every month of the year. Cars are there for a reason!
