    The Longest Day
    I didnt want to divert any of the threads on the Longest day off topic, so I just want to say here that Robster has, in my opinion, turned this from what would be a ride, into an ''event'' almost singlehandedly with the quality job he's done on the participants pack. Fantastic work Robster...

  16. Strange tickover on my xr250r

    XR
    The tickover on my 1997 XR250RT is running slightly high. The strange thing is - if I 'blip' the throttle then it returns to a normal steady tickover speed. If I then pull away and come to a stop - then the tickover is high again and I have to blip the throttle to get it to return to the slow...

    Hi folks, I've been looking at getting a pre reg transalp, but then as I researched it more, I couldn't decide if that was what I wanted or if i want something else. My visit to the dealer didnt prove helpful as I then liked the varedero and also a v strom. However I'm reluctant to spend 6k...
