    E Bike site has been down for a week now with only a phone number shown. Replies on ABR suggest the site has been hacked. My bikes still register as insured on the MID site( ) so I assume they still operating. A few bits of the E insurance empire appear to be more...

    The front right hand stanchion of my 650 'Alp has a bulge in it. (I think the camera exaggerates it a bit). Anyone got any ideas? The previous owner said it's not been crashed and he had it a few years so I'm not worried by it. Just interested. Thanks! Rich.

  7. Ride Reports and Pictures 10mph. In an unexpected twist of irony I crashed on the way back from the bike dealers, where I ordered my new Anakee 2's!!!

    After 26,500 amazingly beautiful kms, all spent hammering up and down the Peruvian Andes (these work a treat at 5,000m by the way), I have finally fallen foul to a guy who ran a red light and knocked me and my AT into another planet. I walked away, but the AT suffered a bit, especially the tank...

    Hi Guys, I had the unforunate incident yesterday of colliding with a truck while riding in Colombia. Thankfully I bounced but my baby sadly didnt. I am trying to work out the best course of action and what to do next. The questions I would like answered are 1. Is it possible to get an...

    I was just wondering how many of us have failed to keep it all sunny side up and lobbed the bike down the road, or into the number 13 bus, or that magnetic ditch on the Cat & Fiddle pass. I know the stats say that bikers can't ride for more than five minutes without there being a call to 999...
