  1. 650 review

    From here (2004 - he's in Australia, I think) ------------------------------ Now that the dust has settled on the new 650 Tranny, these are my observations and experiences thus far. The engine is feeling...
  2. Wanted: RD08 Carb insulator

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hi folks I am looking for a carb insulator for an NX650 RD08. This has the shorter intake tube. My one is too long (a common complaint, I've found) If anyone has a spare, I'll have it for cash or favours. :D
  3. Dulux not so Brilliant white!

    Having had a bad experience with yellowing white paint in the past, I plumped for some Dulux Brilliant White to finish a job last March - an extra tenner or so for premium paint is good value compared to re-painting a full house in a couple of years' if cheaper stuff yellows... I opened the...
  4. New rear shock.

    Dominator / FMX
    My new Wilburs shock arrived today from Germany and I am well chuffed with it.:blob8::blob7::blob8: Its the fist time in 45 yrs of riding bikes that I have bought a new shock and I hope it performs as good as it looks. The price I paid for it is almost half of what I paid for the bike.:rolleyes...
  5. Hi from a new(ish) member

    Austin's Adventures
    This is what I said... Hi Kieran and Laura, I thought you might appreciate some honest feedback following our weekend camping at GAC. I am sorry to have to say we were disappointed overall and you failed to live up to your usual standard. The confusion over booking bunks in the...
  8. Whealie really is a super hero.......

    Africa Twin
    It was bound to happen. You just can’t commute 50 miles a day through stationary London traffic on a ¼ tonne motorcycle and expect everybody to respect the difficulties of piloting solo. When my bike got shunted from behind by an abusive and aggressive mini cab driver in three lanes of solid...

  10. We lied to you...sorry (NOT Nick Clegg this time)

    This made me laugh (a lot)...Bodyform's response to a facebook posting: Bodyform exposes the myths of advertising in video response to Facebook complaint | The Drum
  11. Really? It's the same is it?

    Interesting one this Basically a reporter has been criticised by a viewer for being overweight and setting a bad example. She has then used this 'complaint' as the basis for a piece on bullying. In her piece she likens her obesity to to other reasons that people are often bullied about such...
