    OK, so I've not been posting much with regard to my (faltering) progress towards a full licence. I'd planned to do the test when I had time off work last month, but had ended up with my father in A&E instead and picking up afterwards. I finally got around to doing a Mod 1 last week and passed...

    Let's hear your collective wisdom and techniques for riding downhill. Now, I'm not talking about down a slope, I'm talking about a proper sheer drop in altitude :shock: I'm thinking about somewhere like Wrynose Pass and Hardknot Pass. The last time I rode these passes, I almost lost the...

    Bad news to report I'm afraid, Soly of XRV had a head on collision in France Tuesday before last. He is in a medically induced coma in Avranches hospital with multiple fractures of legs/pelvis/arms/shoulder. He asked if I fancied joining him on a battlefield tour but I was already going on a...

    24-01-2009 BLUE YAMAHA TENERE 1987 model Some F***ing Pikeys stole my beloved (and over insurred) bike tonight at 20:45-21:00 hrs whilst I was in my house The rear number plate was less than 3 inches from my front door (I had the battery on trickle charge) So if you come across any 2nd hand...
  5. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well I suppose this is not really a ride report as such but my first experience of any kind of `off road` experience. The closest I have ever come to leaving my nice smooth roads is a slightly bumpy country lane. So I set off and the first port of call is a quick break in Saltburn ready...

    Chucking it down here in Spain today so i have been rained-off....insteadof being constructive with my free time i thought i would post some picsof my trip to Morocco last September. Went with an organised tour who trailered the bikes down while most of the riders flew into Marakesh. I met...

    Commiserations are due to Boboneleg as we were out at the weekend somewhere in deepest Wales and Bob came a cropper. We told him to pick himself up and get on with it.... and made him ride back to the van. :eek: Only later he now tells us he has a fractured wrist and he's in plaster!! :sad1...

    Re: Locks and Chains The first video is shot in two parts in front of Martin a reporter for Riders Digest. The last video is from a happy Almax Series III owner who still has his bike. If yr chain is locked tight to your bike and a ground anchor then this stops sledge/wedge attacks but it will...

    No, it's not on the east coast of USA but the north coast of Cornwall & Devon. Wheel out the Black Dog (Led Zep track) - It's a good mix of fast sweepers and twisty sections and best of all it's quiet this time of year. It's better suited to sports bikes so the best thing is to get...

    tried to fit my engine bars this afternoon but came a cropper...advice wanted. There are two bolts that are just below the radiators. they consist of a long bolt that goes through the frame with a bolt on the other end. The bolt is seized tight and when i tried hammer on spanner technique, the...

    Despite an ordering nightmare, which turned out to be 'someone left in charge while the owners were on holiday' they sent an extra chain and lock for my trouble, which is about £100 worth :!: So in return, I am recommending them on this site. The chains and locks are currently the best and...
