    A week after the last lot the snow returned again overnight, this was the view from my house this morning.... We had good warning from the weather people the night before so I had the bike and the camera primed and ready to go. I was going to head for the Mendips but the traffic was...

  3. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Today was the day for Barftone's annual Xmas trail-ride. This year it was on the small bikes rather than the Africa Twins, KTM950's etc and that turned out to be a good call. The snow has all but disapeared in the most of the cities now but out in the countryside we found out that it has all...

    Next up for sale is this genuine Rothmans Honda rain jacket. I think these were originaly issued to the mechanics who used to work on the Rothmans Hondas. The label states that it is made from 'polyurethane coated knitted nylon', it has a zipped front with a velcro storm cover, a popper...
  5. For Sale / Wanted
    I am selling this tank bag as I bought it for my KTM 640 but it will not fit :( It is made by Bose and is very similar to the Hein Gericke 'Tuareg' tank bags. It comes with a zip-off base that has a cutout so you can access your petrol cap and expands if you need extra capacity. It also has...

    Now before you get all excited I haven't got a bike for sale but I have got a real nice item that you may never come across again. This is a genuine Rothmans Honda sweatshirt I bought this new and have only worn it about four times as it is too small for me if I'm truthful :rolleyes: so...
  7. Chatter
    Keeping with the tradition of this forum of having dodgy knees I am now putting in a bid for the second worst knee of the forum. I can't beat Boboneleg's KTM extension but I think I have knocked Sharribee into third place. I finally had my knee operation on Monday. It turned out to have been...

    What a superb day out. I met up with Boboneleg and Tendays and we made our way to The Globe where we met up with DaveS and Barftone. It started off sunny and continued getting hotter as the day went on - a bit too hot for the gear I was wearing so I need to go shopping. We went for a little...

    Okay, I know. I am going to regret this but I'm putting the Africa Twin up for sale. This is a well known bike on the forum and has been used for what Africa Twins are meant for. It has been looked after mechanically and is a superb bike. It's a 1990 H reg XRV750L RD04. It's got 43600 miles...
  19. Suzuki
    I've been looking around for a DR350 for a while now, I even bought a Yamaha TT250R hoping that it would do the job but it just wasn't meant for me. So just like Bristol buses you wait for ages and then two turn up at once The white one is my bargain buy, she needed a bit of work to get...
