  1. Bearings Donald ducked

    Dominator / FMX
    Having recently experienced the joy of having my swing arm bearings collapse on my holiday trip south ,I have decided to strip my dommie and do all the bearings as I am going to make it into a flat tracker.:clown::clown::clown: I know you can get cheap chinese ones but I want to stay away from...
  2. So that's it!

    Chatter
    So the Harriers have been retired, I think that the government should look to recent history to see what a foolish move this is. When Argentina decided to invade The Falklands and we decided to bomb the runway at Port Stanley what happened? Oh! dear no long range bomber. Vulcan had been retired...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    I went out for a trail ride on Sunday with my mate Steve on his 950S, we decide to head for the Begwyn hills in Wales as he had never ridden there before. After having to charge my battery we had a steady ride over and no dramas until we got near Hay-on-Wye and noticed that all the roads were...

  6. My screen prob solved at last

    Africa Twin
    Finally, I think I may have it sorted :toothy7: I've tried the AT with the standard screen and with the standard and a Touratech flip on top, but always found it noisy - not so much buffeting as a godawful whooshing wind noise. Ducking down an inch or two, or even just tipping my head down to...
  7. How to change wheel bearings.

    How to.....
    This is a test article for a new section we might have against each bike forum. The original posts were from Yen and I've just cut them out, as you will see they aren't complete but are good to demo this method. As I said last night, my rear wheel bearings were Donald Ducked so I shot to work...
  8. OK Vader - Now it's personal !!!

    Chatter
    When you chased us back to Dunkirk , did we complain ? - NO ! we just swam home to regroup. When you blitzed us night and day , did we complain ? - NO ! we just ducked down and turned the other cheek. When you sent the very best of you airforce to prepare the ground for invasion, were we...
