  3. Carrying a DSLR on a bike

    Am I worrying too much? DSLR and small prime lens in a tail bag strapped to the back seat? I'd love to combine my bestest things to do - bikes and photography - but too nervous to take the camera. Not in case I drop the bike or anything, just vibrations and general bouncing about on the back...
  4. Rear wheel no longer fitting

    Africa Twin
    The whole bike is now fully restored. Now that I am trying to fit the rear wheel, it looks like the combination of wheel and spacers (one on each side) is 4mm too wide. I really don't know what to think even though I have attempted a dozen times to refit the wheel. Can the trailing have...

    Africa Twin

    I hope to combine 2 of my favourite pastimes soon:) I've got my campervan booked in to have a towbar fitted in June so that when we go away for holidays we can hopefully load up the Transalp to take with us. Been looking on eBay at single bike trailers, some are asking for silly money whilst I'm...

  11. Choke, for dummies

    Guys I have just landed in Germany and picked up my 01 alp. I have no idea which way the choke lever is for on and off. It seems to make no difference to the idle speed. I think off is away from the rider and on is pull towards the rider?? Given there is also a petrol smell when the bike is...

  13. 140/80 on XL650V?

    I'm really like the look of the Heindau K60 tires but everywhere I look it says the 130/80 rears get rubbish mileage so I was thinking about a 140/80 rear. Has anyone out there used a K60 140/80 rear on a 650 before? I know tires sizes can vary from manufactuer to manufacturer so looking...

    Minding my own business mowing the lawn this morning, when a Tiger and chair went past. Just don't see combinations these days...... was it anyone on here? (Oh, and a DC3 has just flown over... it's turning out to be an interesting day!)
  18. MATHS, can somebody please explain?

    OK, I admit it, I'm a numpty at maths, and clearly never paid enough attention in class. My invoices are never paid into the bank in consecutive order, and sometimes they are combined, and then have 20% deducted for income tax. The problem is compounded by not getting timely CIS statements...
  19. Kerosene stoves

    Since there are some "Old Technology" freaks hanging on this forum, I thought I might as well ask You Guys what stoves you pack when out on tour. As for my self, I just bought a Radius 21 stove in a Primus 41 box. (Swedish Armed Forces used this combination of a stove from one manufacturer and...
  20. New boots!

    Just got rid of the DEATHwings and plumped for a set of Anakee 2's. Wow what a difference! Got a full tank of gas and hit the first round about. The combination of a full tank and new boots sent me over so fast I could barely recover. And I was being careful!! Schoolboy error! Mind you, it's not...
