    My dad is thinking about selling his 650 Alp and we can't seem to agree on a value of it. Prices for 650s seem to vary a lot on ebay. Details are below. Any ideas on what price we should advertise it for? ---------- 2001 Transalp 650, in black. 35,000 miles, full MOT Very very good...

    I just thought I would share a proud dad moment with you. My teenage son is currently working on a work experience programme connected to his education as a bike mechanic. His boss let him have his first go at welding and this is the result. Not a bad attempt for someone who started working...

    Hi all, I'm interested in finding out what sort of value my xr500 would realise. My dad bought it new in Dubai and it's basically sat in either my garage or his since then. It runs great and I make a point of running it quite frequently. I really don't know what its value could be although I...

    Hi All. I just did about 600 trouble free miles (first trip on the bike). But after a coffee stop my speedometer stopped working. When I got to my dad's I pulled the wheel and the plastic gear in the housing teeth were chewed so I took it out and ordered a whole new unit online, nothing was...

    I have about eight VHS tapes of the Paris-Dakar rally that my dad gave me. They are all recorded from the TV. Mostly from the 1990s. After I have watched them, does anyone want them?
  9. Africa Twin
    After a spin over to the Stafford show with my dad resulted in a small interfacing of my @twin with the back of his 1200rt, I figure it's time to look at the brakes and upgrade them, I already have stainless lines to each calliper, the front discs are original and the pads are new ebc organics...

    Okay - so this was difficult so i thought I would check with "old hands" for tips. I've read a couple of threads saying the OEM plug tool is the right thing to use. Well, I have it in the kit with the bike and I found it OK for getting the plug out - just - it is a challenge to get it under...
