Hi guys just bought myself a 06, 650 Transalp... my previous bike was a Kawasaki GPZ500 but I'm getting a bit old for the riding position so for the sake of my back,knees and wrists it had to go.. The riding position on the Transalp is much more comfortable..here she is... my new baby....
any of you london lot any idea how long it might take to drive from central London (marble arch) to witney (nr oxford) up the A40?
also, anybody know what this place is like http://www.parkwoodhotel.com/prices.htm

Never try to race an old Geezer, he may have one more gear than you.
Home is where your bike sits still long...
Happy new year all, here's some vid's to get you thinking of summer again ! :)

Sadly sold my much loved NC30 to release some funds but not before I had clapped eyes on a cheaper, in need of a "little fettle & tlc" version :rolleyes:

Changed the oil on my AT yesterday and what a lot of messing about! Up on the centre stand to get the crash bars off to get at the bashplate. Then onto the sidestand to drain the oil. Then back on the centre stand to fill her up and put everything back on.

These are AshleyM's videos of our Pyrenees trip in August, enjoy!

I travelled with my buddy ‘TerraStrom’. He rides a modified V-Strom 1000. I ride a trusty old Africa Twin. Hope you like the pics. For those interested full write up attached...
The heat from the fire was comforting as the three electric bars glowed brightly in their metal cage. Nora peeked across the room over the rim of her Reader's Digest. Gerald was snoring lightly, with his half-moon spectacles balanced on the end of his nose, a thin ribbon of drool sliding down...

Sharrie, Mike and myself decided to ride to Portugal on a trio of mighty Beemers for Sharrie and my daughter to practice riding half ton beasties across the Portuguese hills and forests.
We headed down to sunny Portsmouth in what was a start of a hot dry fortnight.
