  1. Ride Reports and Pictures
    As I had a day off work I decided to go for a leisurely ride around Wiltshire and the Plain. First lane of the day was just over the hill from Calne, nice and easy and a good one for getting the back wheel spinning on the gravel Stopped for some petrol in Devizes and then did a couple...
  2. Africa Twin
    I've been collecting parts for a while now to do a rear suspension rebuild on my RD04 (it's Boboneleg's old one so it has had some proper use before he defected to the orange side). I noticed some play in the rear linkage bearings and it looked like the seals had let in the mud and played...

    I've just been to the Spanish Pyrenees for a navigation rally. Eight of us travelled down through France on various bikes ranging from a DR350 up to a KTM 950 super enduro. My Dakar ran superbly, it never used any oil and averaged nearly 72mpg which included the trail-riding bits but I will...

    First of all had a go on the new F800GS or is that GS800?? Boboneleg had a demo one and I took it for a quick spin. Felt light for a twin. Bob thought the fuelling was good but I was'nt so sure. Felt a little jerky to me (I am used to the AT's lurverly carbs). Looked good and went well. The...

    As I've sold my DR350 my BMW 650 Dakar will be pressed into more off-road action and as I want to keep it a bit tidy I decided to take the panels off and keep them in the loft. So onto Ebay to find replacements, I wasn't worried what colour they were as I would paint them anyway. These here...

    Ok my little capitolistic chums. A few of us West cuntry grass chewers (Me, Boboneleg and SteveyCuz) would like to visit the nations capital in the Summer. The idea is to come up on Saturday afternoon, possibly the weekend 9/10th August, maybe join in a little socialising, stay over, and then...

    Commiserations are due to Boboneleg as we were out at the weekend somewhere in deepest Wales and Bob came a cropper. We told him to pick himself up and get on with it.... and made him ride back to the van. :eek: Only later he now tells us he has a fractured wrist and he's in plaster!! :sad1...

    A day in the drizzle ! Went for a trail ride yesterday, it was a good chance to see how the GS would perform. Met Steve at jct18 of the M4 then Susie and Simon came from London via an overnight stop with friends at Tetbury. We set off to meet Paul and Clive at Cardiff West services and as...

    Getting bogged down hunting around the current Stella thread so I'll start a new one! 6 of us (Me, Boboneleg +4) will be there on Saturday night at the La Larici hotel (check their website). We normally have a pizza in the little resturant (has a downstairs as well) half way up the Via Medail...
  17. Transalp
    Feel like I've made a start on making the bike my own after it spent the last few years in the careful ownership of Boboneleg; so it's about time I posted a pic or two... In case you were wondering what I needed the ali sheet for Standard rack and tool box Denuded! Made these two up from...

    Last minute decision to trail ride today and keep my promise to Alpslapper to show him some of the finely maintained Essex green lanes. He did extremely well, despite having trail tyres on with as much grip as a slippy slidy thing sliding on another slippy slidy thing. Here he is on his first...

    I had a great day out yesterday in the Welsh hills with all the other forum bods. Mr Mabel took us on a great route and although it was a bit nippy I think most people enjoyed the ride. Unfortunately Dave (fridge) had a bit of a mishap on his Transalp and took a tumble but he carried on for...

    Went out yesterday on the lanes of Wiltshire on my DR350. Twas a bit damp despite the lack of rain. Four pics from the day where I got to meet Boboneleg for the first time. Bob entering a small puddle that had caused nearly all the bikes to stall in the middle with damp plug caps. Bob stranded...
