    Walk round to the back of the shop whilst having a smoke, stash my bag in the top box and start the bike up, finish my smoke and put the helmet on then set off and then I heard the noise. I forgot to take off the Almax series 3 and Squire SS65CS lock off and wrapped it around the forks and got...
  2. Photography
    Thought I'd post here for a change. I've just bought a new (well first) head camera and I had a pretty long list of features I was looking for and I think I've found it in the Drift HD170. Firstly I wanted quality. I wasn't too fussed about HD but it's clear that's the way we are all heading...

  4. Ride Reports and Pictures
    I've said it before, never a ride on Nessie that doesn't turn into an adventure one way or another :color:. This one involved student pranks, four counties (Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire & Warwickshire), Nessie reaching a ton (no, mileage in a day, not speed ;)), her having a gentle...
  5. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Not an XRV event, but I thought I'd pop a ride report in anyway . . . The Highland ABR Simmer Rally at Ullapool started on Thursday 22nd September when several intrepid travellers got there ahead of the main gaggle of riders. I rode up early on Friday morning to find that one had already left...
  6. Africa Twin
    I am in the process of giving my 2002 RD07A some loving care, and have started to strip the suspension linkage down. Only the U shaped bit that hinges on the frame has completely seized. In fact it's the bolt that has seized to the collar/insert. I've taken the centre stand and exhaust off of...

    Well, I've just fitted new rear pads and typical of me, I take every opportunity to lube and clean all pivots etc. So, any of you out there who follows the Haynes manual for changing pads, wait a minute and do a bit more than they suggest. They say about pivoting up the caliper so that you can...

  9. The Longest Day
    TLD Registered Riders With less than five months to go until TLD 2011, I thought I would take this opportunity to ask you the riders, how you think things are shaping up ? The committee needs to know if there is anything we are not doing that in your opinion, we should be doing, whether you...

    Although I'm a regular work wise in the city I've never spent much time there for fun. Well Mrs H has booked a couple of days down there for us next month and we will be taking out 16 and 17 year olds with us. Anyone got any suggestions for interesting things to do that should appea to all of...
  12. Africa Twin
    Ive recently switched over to some more aggressive tires. I find them horrible on gravel. They are good in sand but thats it. The move around on dirt roads, even moreso than my scorpion / anakee rear setup. Infact, my anakee was harder so drift through the bends, the c02 just slides... Man on...
  13. Past National Meets
    just back from a booze up in amsterdam and all my photos seem to be of me or my mates pointing/sitting/standing next to signs that say "kunt" (scuse my french, or dutch in this case) a lot, i think it meant you 'cant' do this or you 'cant' do that etc i have no idea but you get the drift, little...

  15. The Longest Day
    The following is adapted from the post originally by PanRider who organised it but sadly will not be present. There may therefore be some slippage. The postcode for the TA Hall in LOWESTOFT!! is NR32 3LS. The Hall is behind the Tudor Rose pub (there is a drive to the right) on St Peter's...

    Thought I'd mention this, even though sort of mentioned before. I had to assist my mainstand with my foot to make it return. So, having some time spare on Saturday, decided to regrease my stand. Bearing in mind it's a 2006 model, i.e. not old, you wouldn't have thought it so hard getting the...

    Hi All. Yep I'm still here up in Nottingham learning the lingo, still having bucket loads of shyte with this divorce thing, once the weather warms up a bit for these old bones I will be doing more meets and rides hoping to catch up with you all again. Loads going on but don't want to tell the...
  18. Riding
    Ok I had a bit of a brown trouser moment on the way home from work the other night. I had just filled up with petrol and was on my way home on wet roads and decided to give it a bit of throttle to avoid an idiot driver. I was going around a sweeping Left hand bend on the inside lane on a 2 lane...

    Just wandering if there is a DO's & DON'T list for riding on snow/ice road conditions since not overly confident on slippery roads at 7am in the morning when half asleep since Tourance tyres are great in the dry but found can give you a sideways drift on corners which is a tad un-nerving on very...
