comparisons

  1. Chatter
    I have 2 AT's - a '97 and a '00. Now I know my '00 has got a few extras on it - centre stand, taller windshield, panniers (light, plastic toolboes not heavy alloys), plastic topbox, heated grips, bagster cover, altered seat (thank god for that) and maybe a couple of other small alterations -...
  2. Photography
    A little bit of cash has come my way and I'm thinking about a new camera as I would like to buy something tangible rather than just piddle the money away over time. Rather than simply replace my little Canon ixus, which is a great point and snap camera and still up to the job, I thought I'd like...
  3. Transalp
    Later this year I'm downsizing to one of the above. I'll still be wanting to do some touring around Europe and the first trip for the new bike will be the Route des Grande Alps. What I'm after is some real world comparisons of the bikes. I'll test ride them all but a couple of hours test isn't...
  4. Insurance
    Well it came to renewal time once again and the squabble began between Carol Nash and Swinton over who was better. Each told me of the 'only' insurance available which was Equity Red Star etc and how the planet is mis aligned causing a 30% increase in their desire to own a Ferrari errr insurance...
  5. XR
    The silencer end piece of waffles' XR250 is standard except for a few dents, some internal & external corrosion & a heavily modified end piece. A standard pea-shooter piece can no longer be inserted due to this modification & so waffles has been on the lookout for a better end can since the...
  6. Riding
    Im giving some thought to moving away from the AT (rd07) One of the bikes im giving some thought to as a replacement is the Varadero (the 1000 version i hasten to add, im not going back to a 125) Would anyone whose ridden both be able to make some comparisons for me? Acceleration / cruising at...

    :confused::confused::confused: Ok, we're soon to be in the market for a new laptop (prob wait for the Jan sales.....) Some basics we know like hard drive capacity & cache (?) memory are quite easy to compare but when it comes to the processors theres quite a large choice but direct comparisons...
  8. News
    Insurers and brokers are pleading with the government not to increase Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) in the emergency budget on 22 June fearing it will lead to cuts in cover or more uninsured. Coming on top of premium rises anyway, it could mean motor premium up more than a third. The...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi When I bought my @ it had a noise coming from the inside of the clutch casing, it sounded to me as if something was catching / rubbing inside so I decided not to do many miles on it until I had had a chance to look inside. Well, I've drained the oil and had the casing off today and from...
  10. Mechanical Advice
    Prompted by Craigs post on the zumo, how do you download your routes from the zumo unit and view them in google earth. I have a 550 but no instructions. What softwear do I need installed on the computer and is there an idiot (me) guide to how to do it somehwere, or can some kind person spell it...
  11. Chatter
    Or be stopped! disgust. Returned to quiet village apparently not so quiet any more to see my folks last night. I then popped to see some freinds who were doing the same. On returning to my folks I found the neighbours wall half kicked over with a big plant pot strewn all over the road...
  12. Africa Twin
    Seems to be a fair range of engine/panel protection bars available. So, can anyone make any comparisons? My main concern is where they are mounted, and the force of impact will be transferred to these points. Touratech - £133 - http://www.touratech.de/shop_uk/enter.html SW Motech - £112 -...
  13. Chatter
    Having done some general touring in France & Spain over the last few years on my current bike (Yamaha Thunderace) I have decided I’d like to explore some of the roads less well traveled and also go further afield. I’m initially contemplating more of Eastern Europe (and if I can persuade my...

    Hi mate, I have the GPS V which is pretty good for trail, track & road use. You can pick them up fairly easily and as with a tv remote it all seems pretty overwhelming at first but after a few play's you realise it has only so many function some of which you will never use. I normally go onto...
