  3. ironic....

    Yesterday, my son rescued a bird from a cat - and put it in a safe place to recover, and was giving it food, and water. We thought it was doing well, but then he found it dead.

    This is a writeup I did for my local IAM rag but I thought it might be of interest to some here.

  9. Auvergne 2012 chasing the usual suspects

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    we went to the Auvergne last year but due to various circumstances we missed out on most of what we’d planned to do, so we went back this year. I actually have very few pics to go with this, which is a shame cos the scenery is stunning & the roads wonderful, but this lot are not into photos &...

  11. Suggested tires for FMX650

    Dominator / FMX
    Greetings everyone. As per the title, i've been thinking of replacing my tires for a while now. Since it's summer the grip is good enough, plus i don't ride very fast or aggressively anyway. However, now that i got used to the bike, when i test my brakes on an empty piece of road and try to push...

  15. Not what I had planned!

    At this point in time I should be just waking up, strolling to the boulangerie for some fresh hot croissants for a leisurely breakfast with a good book. Needless to say, this plan has been foiled. I should have left the outlaws place yesterday afternoon & come home with madame MooN, leaving...

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Ok before you flame me I am still a newbie... Be gentle with me! Great ride back home from work today, birds twittering and sun out and a tropical 11 degree, plus I finished early - so I took the LONG way home. Plenty of great twists n turns, so I made good progress! When I got home I noticed...

  20. Centrestands / Chicken Strips

    Africa Twin
    Anyone fitted a 'Wemoto' centrestand? Thinking about ordering but they don't look very substantial :confused: - my old Fazer 1000s stand seemed much beefier. Any comments gratefully digested. Also, while I've never been a slave to chicken strips, my front Tourance is almost to the edge, while...
