  1. Any big bore Africa Twins out there?

    Africa Twin
    Hi everyone. A few years ago there was a lot of discussion about big bore kits for the XRV750. The thread kind of tailed off, and I never did read of one that actually got finished at 850cc or even bigger. Are there any completed projects out there? cheers Steve
  2. Transalp 600 replacement?

    Transalp
    Continuing the discussion about what bike can replace the TA 600, I spotted this. I quite like the look of it, and there seems to be a new interest from manufacturers in the 300cc-500cc range. I think they have realised that there are some people who don't want a 220kg adventure bike, nor a...
  3. Hypothetical: SV650 in AT?

    Africa Twin
    Question for the more experienced folks here. How close are these two engines? Obviously, there would be some fabrication involved, but weight savings, power gains and fuel injection!!!!! Maybe someone has tried it? Just a thought, not something I've really considered, but interested in a...
  4. Front fork Gaiters for Varadero

    Varadero
    Read some discussion on this issue, but can't find the tread. Where do I get gaiters 43mm/63mm and 195mm long of Honda OEM quality ? Anyone fitted to Varadero ? Anything to look out for when disassembling the front legs, could they become different length / not aligned ?
  5. National meet 2014

    National Meets
    About time we got to thinking about this...I've copied quote from another thread, to start the discussion. I'd love to be able to, Ian, but I really genuinely don't think I have the capacity. Between work & caring responsibilities I barely hold my head above water as it is. Also, I have to go...

  8. OK. Boffins ?

    Mechanical Advice
    I could be right out there with this one, but it's just a thought. See this picture ? amusing I know,but I was wondering what the effect of having say a 10'' swivelling wheel on a side car might be ? Maybe no one has thought of the idea as it's just too f*****g brilliant ? :D:D:D Or maybe I'd...
  9. International Journal of M/cycle Studies

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    http://www.International Journal of Motorcycle Studies Next July 4-7th in London there is a conference organised by this fantastic journal. If anyone's interested then I suggest that you read it first before going. It definitely isn't for everyone. But I think it's the best thing in m/cycling...
  10. The Hi-Viz discussion

    Chatter
    Found this on Therevounter forum - Transport Research Laboratory: High Conspicuity* Garments for Road Workers, Final Report. I refer the reader to Figure 10 on Page 37. And the powers that be are still trying to force "Highly Conspicuous" Hi-Viz Jackets on users motorcyclists in the totally...

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer
    Hi all, just thought I'd share a ride report I posted up on ABR following a discussion whether the CT is a real adventure bike. Crosstourer, is it an adventure bike? Enjoy!
  12. A new toy.....

    Varadero
    After a while looking, I've just found my new toy - a 2007 Vara (1000) ABS in black, which I believe is the fastest colour, though I think there may be some discussion on that point! Roll on the good weather, so's I can go and play !!!!! :blob8:
