  1. Skye - Roads & Bogs

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    As Galloway was put back to August due to the seasonal weather, the Inversnekien plotted up an island jaunt from Skye to Lewis to the Uists . . . . that changed quite rapidly due to broken down ferries to a weekend on Skye, with some mud & peat thrown in if we were good. I met up with Africajim...

    Chatter
    Ive been trail riding for just over a year now and had my fair share of problems. Both mechanical and "my own fault" eg stuck in the mud. Ive been think of getting rid of my @ and KTM and getting something a bit smaller, a bit easier to maintain, a bit easier to pull out of the bogs. So, Yes...

    CRF - New Forum!
    ..... back my CRF230F :thumbup: My first trail bike about 15 months ago was this CRF230F that i bought to carry on the back of my motorhome and to commute to work on. My intention was to also start doing a bit of 'greenlaning' with some friends who did both (road in summer/trail in winter)...
  9. A day out with Mudwiz

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The day started bright, early and bloody freezing (sorry if I made anyone blush) in Mudwiz's garden at 9am. After a much needed coffee, myself and Ian were made to walk our runing bikes around Mudwiz's garden. As already alluded to by Ian, the surface is interesting. In fact, given the amount of...
  10. Dual sport

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Hey its well documented I have gone through bikes, maybe its because the XR has been so much fun, everything else just doesnt do all the things the XR can... in my eyes. One day its in the woods and over the bogs, next day it can be cutting up city traffic. So as its now my only bike Im trying...
  11. Puddles stop my XR!

    XR
    I have a problem with water stopping my 96 XR 250. The bike runs fine and performs perfectly well in all areas in the dry, but as soon as it hits water it bogs down and stops. It is as if it has gone into shock. It will then fire up straight away with the next kick. I have done the...

    CRF - New Forum!
    Hello all of you out there. I'm a new boy on the block and found this forum by accident. I'm pretty well through a project with the CRF230. I've scrapped the "lighting kit" that came with the bike and replaced it with xr400 headlight, shroud and speedometer. Speedo cable from xr200 fits a...

  19. My first bodge.

    Bodgers Corner
    However, this bodge is for my Ural. One of the many trinkets I hoped to acquire/make for my Ural in order to trip prep it for 2009, was a barcket of sorts for my folding trenching tool, to dig us out of treacherous bogs! So I set to work with 5mm x 30mm steel flat bar, cutting gringing and...
  20. Surging / bogging issue...

    Dominator / FMX
    My 89 dommie runs well, able to get off choke to a smooth idle quite quickly. Hardly uses any oil and generally is OK. I have a K&N, drilled airbox lid and Acerbis large tank fitted. Last week I changed the oil, plug and exhaust headers for ones without holes in them. The problem is that the...
