  1. removing headstock outer race

    trying to remove the headstock bearing outer race on my 2010 700 from the headstock but the inner diameter of the outer race is bigger than the shoulder it sits on :( no edge at all to get to to knock them out. Any tips or tricks ?
  2. North Korea - Anyone worried???

    Are we sitting on the edge of something to worry about or are they setting themselves up to be the punchline of many future jokes?
  3. Calendar

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Is there any chance that people update the calendar with events local or national. I think even the national wasn't in there or am I missing something. As a person on the edge of the mainstream membership and not always online it would be useful. Or am I looking at the wrong calendar?:)
  4. Possible use for ACF50

    Being a lucky boy for Christmas, as well as "Close to the Edge", I had a tin of ACF50. I've sprayed and wiped most of my @ with it, can it be applied to the chain?
  5. SENNA

    I Just watched the last of my Xmas DVD's The SENNA Story. I watched the full 3hrs and think it as good or possibly better than the "Closer to the Edge". It's amazing how much you forget over time i realy did enjoy this one
  6. Riding to Monaco vs not riding

    What would be cheaper do you think? Riding or flying? Flights are around £200 return. Would love to ride but I'm thinking the plane will have the edge in terms of cost and speed :(

  8. Peli cases as panniers

    Bodgers Corner
    After much head-scratching my Dad and I managed to fix a pair of Peli 1430 Cases to my Hepco & Becker pannier rails. The H&B rails look like this: Reasonably low if rather wide. (Most pannier rails are. :violent1: ) Here's the end result; steps to achieve that are below: I'd experimented...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Oww. That sort of sums it up! Apart from that, a fab day. Daz and myself set off about half nine this morning. Quick spin to the site, it's really nice to have an event so close. (Didn't get up 'till about 9!) Sign on, "scrutineering", ie do you have a bike, a helmet and what tyres are on...
  10. XL700 first service report

    My TA has been for its 600 service today. The Givi panniers rails and crash bars still haven't arrived. :cussing: Still, apparently they are easier to fit than the Honda. I looked at a taller Honda screen, a short look at £100 a pop. The dealer prefers the Givi one. They're going to get one in...

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, After two and a half (long) months of searching, I have finally bought an AT! It is standard (apart from topbox) with 13000 miles on the clock. It was the 3rd one I looked at. I bought it from Hereford, its new home is now the edge of Dartmoor. I serviced it shortly after I got...

  14. New 1200 Varadero?

    First i've heard about this, does anyone know if this is true? Cheers! It is expected that Honda will launch an updated version of the road biased adventure bike Varadero this autumn. To get closer to the all conquering BMW R1200GS it is believed the new Varadero will get a more sporty edge...

I was heading...
  16. Shock!

    Africa Twin
    The shock is I managed to get the old shock off Project Zebra and the new one back on. Following advice from Bob, I put some cardboard down (mainly to keep my bum warm when sitting on the ground) and laid the bike down and drowned her in ACF50 overnight. This did indeed loosen up some nuts...

    Competitions / Trials
    Just thought you might like to see this vid of an amateur enduro race which has been held near Milano a few weeks ago. It's basically a "dedicated" offroad event for big twin enduro bikes with only a mild competitive edge... fun is the key word for the day! Some singles were allowed though, but...
