  2. ADV Scotlands 1st Rally - Steve T's Write Up

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    What a weekend that was. Weather that most riders can only dream about. Roads that still require me to pinch myself when I ride them, to make sure I’m not hallucinating. And the company of like minded individuals to boot! The weekend started, as weekends do, on Friday morning, with the boxes...
  3. Fuel filter RD07

    Africa Twin
    Just fitting a Facet fuel pump and wondering if I can fit a different fuel filter with a clear window so if it's captured any crap from dodgy fuel outside Europe I can see it has and clean it. Sounds a good idea in theory but anyone know of a clear case fuel filter that's cleanable? Thanks in...

  5. Russian Convoy Boys.

    For years now my dad has been meeting his old Mine Sweeper shipmates (HMS Apollo) once a month down in Kennington. Much of his sailing was in the post war Baltic seas. Several years ago the Mine Sweepers and the Russian Convoy Club decided to join together as their numbers, for obvious reasons...

  9. Nippled out today

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    At lunchtime to do a few trails near home. Most of them were dead ends and ended up at fields but one of them was a couple of miles long we made it through to the far end. It was pretty boggy in places as judging by the hoof prints and poo it sees a fair bit of equine traffic. As ever the...
  10. Good Book

    Was browsing the books at Manchester Airport last week I bought a copy of "Two Wheels Through Terror" by Glen Heggstad. Great book. He left Palm Springs in California with the intention of riding down to the Souther tip of Argentina via the West coast of South America then riding back via the...
  11. Nanger National Park, NSW Australia

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Took a ride last weekend in Nangar National Park, close to Canowindra NSW, Australia. There has been a lot of rain lately, and all the creeks were running water. My helmet cam captured the ride nicely, but ran out of batteries just as I got my Varadero bogged in a soft muddy creek. We were...

  15. touratech rack extension

    Later models Varaderos have an absolutely crap rack that is next to impossible to get secure places to fit bungees or luggage straps. So, I took a chance on an offer from Iainnic in the sale/wanted forum and bought a Touratech rack extension for a TA700 hoping it would fit my 07 Vara. Good news...

  17. Thetford Chase, 15th November 2008

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Responding to an invitation from Anton88 I decided to break my offroad duck with what I was reliably promised would be an easy day out along gentle tracks around Thetford. I met Anton88 close to Mildenhall. There were also a few Land Rovers meeting up with a similar plan in mind: After...

  19. Technical Pics

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Whilst browsing the pics on my PC I realised that I've captured over the years some technical close up shots of the AT for various things but never uploaded them. I'm wondering how many pics we've all got stashed away. I'm going to upload all of mine so that they're saved for prosperity, and...
  20. Plucking

    The History of the Middle Finger Well,'s something I never knew before, and now that I know it, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hope that they, too, will feel edified. Isn't history more fun when you know something about it? Before the Battle...
