  1. new NX650 Owner

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Greetings XRV forum members. I have been lurking around motorcycle forums for about a month now and decided to join this one. I had been looking for a project for a little while and considered a few different models, settling on an NX 650 mostly because of the wealth of information I found on...
  2. Fair Cop

    I have a site hack for working on Skye, it's a Citroen Nemo van, great little thing for grifting along the deserted roads on Skye. Know I shouldn't, but I'm in and out of the van that much that I rarely put my driver's seat belt on, I just stick the passenger seat belt clip into my drivers...

  4. Bye, bye to MotoGP - unless to want to pay

    Looks like the only way to watch MotoGP from next year will be to pay for it - BT Sport confirmed for MotoGP deal and MotoGP: BT Sport secures TV rights from 2014 in five-year deal. So, I suppose I'll have to go out and ride my own bike now rather than watching the racing. Ho hum. 100%...

  13. Good By Vara, Good Bye.

    Sold the Vara yesterday due to it not getting used enough and the wife losing all interest in bikes. Really sad to see it go as it is without doubt the best allrounder I've had. It's horrible to see an empty garage now but not as bad seeing a bike not being used. Don't know what I'm getting next...

  19. Say bye to the Transalp ?

    I've got a sneaky feeling Honda UK are dropping the Alp from it's line-up for 2005. Or, they're holding it back to shift the current 04 model. The main Honda UK site no longer lists the Transalp in it's 'Adventure Bikes' section. A friend of mine rang a dealer to enquire when the 2005 bikes...
