  1. 12v Catch

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I am currently installing a GPS unit to replace the dead TripMaster, but I will need a point where to catch the 12v to fit a USB connector in order to power the GPS unit while driving. I was thinking of using 2 of the PINs on the TripMaster connector, since they deliver 12v just when the...
  2. Free return ferry ticket from Hull to Rotterdam.

    Half a dozen of us are riding to the Assen Moto GP this weekend but one lad has had to drop out. We catch the overnight ferry with cabin supplied this Friday and return on Wednesday 29/06/16 arriving back in Blighty on Thursday morning. Some but not all of the blokes are going to the Nurburgring...
  3. Arrived today!

    Africa Twin
    Tucked up in the garage! :) Now the silly questions start... Came with 3 keys - the large Honda one is obvious, starts the bike, opens the fuel cap & the seat catch; but what do the other 2 do? Any ideas? Also, there's no user manual or service book. Does anyone know if they can be bought...
  4. Wrong (too low) tacho reading

    Africa Twin
    Hi! It seems my tacho is showing the RPM wrong. When idling at ~1000rpm, the tacho stays at 0 and just vibrates slightly. As soon as I open the throttle it moves upwards quickly, but doesn't catch up properly until around 4-5000 rpm. Any ideas what may be causing this? I think it's always been...

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, The maintenace of the bike continues.....has anyone had any problems with the high/low beam sticking when on high beam and trying to depress it to low beam. I have taken it apart and nothing apparent causing it. Obviously there is a channel on the underneath of the red button to catch...
  13. Vader, not sure of your new look..........

    I really don't think that it will catch on. Apparently Disney have bought Lucasfilm (the firm behind Star Wars, as if you didn't know). 100% free webcam site! | Awesome chicks and it is absolutely free! | Watch free live sex cam - easy as 1-2-3
  14. Wrinkly Rockers

    Was never a great fan of the Stones, liked them, but never a huge follower. However, this latest single is superb - raw rock played by a bunch of guys that should be collecting their pensions by now. Here it is Fair do's to the guys for not letting...

  16. 152mph driver, not jailed.

    The reason i bring this up is, someone posted up a while back about a biker being jailed for (i can't remember the speed, was it 160mph) and this guy is doing similar in a car and was not jailed? Police 'looked at each other in disbelief' as they tried to catch BMW M5 driver, 28, doing 152mph...
  17. Seat catch

    Am I the only one who needs three hands to remove the seat on a 650 Transalp? Whenever I turn the key in the lock the seat is very difficult to remove but eventually does. Is there anything I can do to make it easier such as oiling or greasing something? Thanks in advance Graeme

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Just watched an hour long programme about the Peak District National Park, basically was about the residents trying to ban ALL green laning and it looks like they are getting the ear of the local and park authorities. I've never riden the Peak Park (or any girl with a similar name :)) but it...
  19. Bike parking Luton Railway Station ????

    does anyone know what bike parking is like at Luton railway station? I've got to catch a train from there to get into the London office in a couple of weeks and wondered if anyone knew of a good place to park the bike other than the NCP that's nearby.
  20. Seat stuck RD07

    Africa Twin
    Hi Team Strange one this but I cannot get the seat off! I've disconnected the keylock but it seems something is jammed in the rear catch. Any suggestions without starting to hit it hard? I've got one side panel off. :(
