    Hi All, I have been looking at the requirements for ULEZ bikes, and I cannot work out if my 600 will pass or not? I called Honda and they cannot give me a CoC for the bike (too old). Has anyone had the emissions (I think it is only the NoX output that they care about?!) tested? Am I able to get...

    My first Post... I have just aquired an RD 03 vin # RD03 10004xx to keep my crf1000 dct company in the garage. It is 99% original but needs just a little care to make it excellent. Question.. Was this bike an early Japanese domestic build ? It does have a “speed” light and I think Japan...

    I've now had my first short ride on the SLR and enjoyed it very much. It's so much lighter, narrower and more chuckable than the Strom. However, having EFI on my last 2 bikes has spoiled me a little. The SLR has a stumble just coming off idle which is a bit annoying. It feels as though it's a...

    As title, only need the brackets as I already have the pannier mounts. Don't care if they are rusty or in need of repair. I know this is a long shot but you never know! Lol Or if anyone knows where I can buy a set, let me know. Cheers

    I'm certainly not much of a bike polisher but my 05 Varadero came with a Bagster tank protector so I might as well look after it. What special care does it need or can I just wash it when I wash the rest of the bike?

    (Cross posted on advrider) Anyone care to express an opinion as to what's going on with the battery compartment here? It's real messy with some weirdly placed fuses. Figured I'd post here before start tinkering and blowing stuff up.

    Well having pestered a certain someone on here I have managed to get the bike going,stripped the loom twice and cleaned all connectors and it's fired up, I can't say what was at fault though, but it's running and life's too short to care.. Bring on the winter now, any tips on where's best to get...

    Anyone with an iPhone care to test my phone app for bikers? It's free in the app store and called the-zebra. I'm after any Gremlins or any quick fixes so if you spot any, let me know so I can sort them. I'll owe you a beer. Screenshot iPhone5 by whealie, on Flickr
