  1. Anyone recognize the countryside in this video?

    Chatter
    Besides the great countryside it's one of my favs from Ronnie Lane and Pete Townshend on the album Rough Mix. That's Eric Clapton by the way on the dobro. :) RIP Ronnie Lane who passed away in '97. So...where is this? It looks like a nice area to ride. Hopefully it has not changed much...

  4. The Wings Tour 2014: Leg One

    News
    What is the connection between motorcycles and airplanes? Growing up with a father who was fascinated by both, my youth was spent scouring the countryside for dusty barn finds, spinning a greasy wrench and flying, in the air and on the ground, wind in my face. It seemed that most of my dad's...
  5. New rider, new Transalp! (Pics included...)

    Transalp
    Morning all! It's taken me a while to actually get round to posting my pictures, have been keeping track of the forum for about 3 months...! (Especially like that midlands to Malta thread, what an inspiration!) I passed my test on the 2nd December, then got my TA on the 8th. I'm not all that...

  7. Your best biking roads

    Transalp
    Here's a thing.... fancy sharing your best / favourite roads with others? Just a daft idea so folks in your area can try them out :) I'll start.... From Newcastle, take the A696 to Ponteland, ride thought the village to Belsay. Stop at the old Post Office for a coffee and chat to other bikers...
  8. Found a new playground...

    Africa Twin
    Just another day in the life of your average AT...YEP! It's still rolling around the swedish countryside on a mainly day to day basis doing mundane duties but at it's best when turning down unknown and new forest tracks (to me anyways)..that's what I call a fun bike :thumbup:
  9. Offroad training in Scotland

    Riding
    Last weekend I was fortunate enough to enjoy a day in the company of MotoScotland and below is my take on the days events. As the dramatic Argyll countryside rolled by the car window the temptation to stop and wait to see the sunrise was almost too much to bear but I was a man on a mission and...
  10. First rally on the RD04

    Africa Twin
    First race last weekend - the Hafren rally in Wales - a grade 4 (out of 5) on the difficulty scale. A 210km mixture of tight enduro sections and flat out fire road in the beautiful Welsh countryside ... t'was great fun and the old girl made a good account of herself. The suspension mods and...
  11. Loggy's local ride out...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Thought I would go for a ride out this afternoon on my own. I decided to take a ride round the local area. I went through Wantage and up to White Horse Hill. If any of you have been here you will know that the views are fantastic over the beautiful Oxfordshire Countryside. I took a few snaps...

  14. Britannia here we come :-) Advice welcome!

    Travel
    Cheers everyone, having travelled through Eastern Europe last year, we have on rather short notice kicked the idea to ride to Turkey because it will be too hot for the kids riding pillion (we had 40 degrees in Romania last year already). So it´s Britannia this year, three weeks from around 15...
  15. @ owners welcome to Sweden..

    Africa Twin
    Being the nice guy I am :iconbiggrin: and being as you @ owners seem like a a reasonable bunch thought I'd just pass out an invitation for using my place as a base or springboard to those of you who are passing through or want to visit Sweden on your @'s ..free accomodation of course,just buy...
  16. Dominator chain kit

    Dominator / FMX
    I have just degreased my o-ring chain and decided it might not be a bad idea to replace it as the teeth on the front sprocket look a bit stretched. It has a 15T front and a 45T rear sprocket. Would it perform better or worse if I went with a 47T on the rear? What do you guys prefer, o-ring or...

  18. It really is amazing what people have tucked away.

    Chatter
    Now over in this part of the world where motorcycling and road racing border on being a religion it's long been known that in certain parts of the countryside enthusiastic collectors have all sorts of bikes tucked away in various sheds and workshops some of which make appearances at classic...
  19. Brian and Morag get out on the road again!

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Don't really think this counts as a "ride report" (more like a progress report) so mods feel free to move if I've got it wrong. As some will know, despite passing my bike test last autumn I've gone through something of a confidence crisis after parking my first big bike Morag horizontally on a...
  20. Sean and I dance on ice

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    On the Friday just gone Sean and I met up at Rykas for a short bimble on the bikes. Getting my bike out the garage wasn't easy (bit like an ice rink by the garage door) and it did dawn on me that riding when it was icy and frosty perhaps wasn't my brightest idea. This thought was compounded by...
