  3. New Transalp 650 owner from Essex UK

    Greetings Thought I'd pop in and register on this established forum, as I've just picked up a 2001 XL650V Transalp to go with my VTR1000F Firestorm 1997. I've had the Storm from 2000 and done 60,000 miles and need to take it apart for a spruce up and so got the Tranny so I won't be off the...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The following is my ride report from ATR I hope that you enjoy it. The Blue Oyster Club. Yes I know it’s a strange name for a ride report, but (and this isn’t the only butt that you’ll have the dubious pleasure of reading about) it is pertinent. Hands up those who can remember the gay bar in...

  14. Speed cameras sabotaged by.......

    ..... Police! Well, it is in France - French Police sabotage speed cameras. Apparently, the Police officers are concerned about their quota system and that French policy is "financial profitability rather than actually improving the safety of road users." Now, where have I heard that before...
  15. car theft idea

    The Yobs cartoon in Private Eye this week may well prompt a crime wave. It's such a cracking idea. They nick a car, drive it really fast through ten speed cameras and then.... ....park it back where they found it:D. I know, I know, it is very irresponsible of me but I can't help but be...
  16. Speed Traps in Oxfordshire

    Anyone riding in Oxfordshire needs to be very switched on for Speed Cameras. I've seen 4 this week. The one I saw today was hidden up a lane and had the device mounted on a tripod looking down a straight stretch of 50MPH. Devious bastwards. They must have a purge on. Never seen one in the place...

  19. Hillsborough

    What has come out today about the police in South Yorkshire with something like 160 documents altered to removed evidence that it was their fault - and the fact that the police started the rumours that it was drunk Liverpool fans who caused their own deaths is staggering.
