  5. Bored with your Varadero? Enter "Project Varaturnipstorm or Fireturnipdero"

    Varadero
    Project VaraTurnipStorm or FireTurnipDero. Now I know I’m still working on the Tracker project, but after thinking of this name I just had to start a thread before someone else does & pinches the title. Ha. The idea has come around after reading up about various Harley XR750 flat track based...

  8. Tollesbury > Maldon > Burnham-on-Crouch on Tigger 955i

    Great Roads/Routes
    Out & about early on Thursday for a bimble on the hottest day of the year so far. First stop at Doc's for a repeat prescription, second stop Tollesbury for a snack - little independent butcher with a mad glint in eye and blood splatters on his apron that was selling sausage roll by the length...
  9. How bulletproof?

    XR
    Hi guys I went riding on sunday, only for an hour or so, and this was after I had been out for a similar amount only a couple of weeks earlier. Before I went out a couple of weeks ago, I checked my oil level and it was great, so didn't think to check it this week. (I've had the bike 3.5 years...

    Hi been registered on the forum for a few years as an interested, occasional visitor. However now just bought a rough Vigor for the right money with a view to building a flat tracker / cafe racer. I knew engine was in need of at least a top end rebuild when I bought it, so now just starting...

  14. Dommie seat

    Dominator / FMX
    The covering on my original Dommie seat has finally given up. It has a split which is letting rainwater in to wet the foam. If any of you customisers or flat trackerers or cafe racerers has an original RD08 seat going spare, please let me know here. Even if it's not in the best of nick, it...
  15. How many bikes is too many?

    Chatter
    I just sold a bike a few weeks ago because I wasnt sure how many miles it had done so it had to go and I bought another with the proceeds. My new bike is a minter that just needs a few bits n bobs and I am already wondering what to get next when I done this one. How many bikes is enough...
  16. RD04 Fuel Pleasantly surprised

    Africa Twin
    Now the RD04 Marathon rep encourages me to thrash it so I've never really pootled along as I have almost always been on my one when on it Fuel at best has been 47-50 ish mpg max, a lot less that the RD07a but acceptable because it's faster than the RD07a Went out with son no1 (Dave) on his...

    Dominator / FMX
    You don't see many Dommies about these days, rarer still to see two together! Here's JamieB76's and mine at the Log Cabin Cafe, Abridge earlier today. I did my best to make sure the Harley-Fergusons parked alongside were kept out of shot...
  18. Dommie oil cooler.

    Dominator / FMX
    After giving my Dommie project a long awaited thrashing and totally enjoying myself ,the only negative aspects of the trip was I thought the clutch was very heavy and i think an oil cooler would be a big improvement. Apart from that ,the bike is awesome and has a cracking over ride sound when...
