We rode down through France and across the Spanish border in a couple of days. Most of...

    And I got it too :cry: She developed a splutter on 1/4 throttle, especially when cold, so I went in today to find out why. Problems I've had to overcome :evil: 1) Stainless steel screw holding front side panel to tank head stripped. As its recessed in the fairing I had to drill the head...

    Been browsing at aftermarket exhausts. Anyone got one of these? What really caught my eye was a 3 year warranty on the stainless steel exhausts. http://thundercompetition.com paul

    I'm deciding what to get as my first bike, and had pretty much decided on an XL650. Until I sat on one. I'm 6'6" tall and I just don't fit. Instead of my knees fitting snugly into cut away sections of the fairing (A), they come up to the widest part (B) which is hopeless. Apologies to rlkat for...

    Well according to the insurance company there is now one less AT in the world after mine has been written off. Got T-Boned by someone cutting a red light, luckily I got away with minor bruising to the leg that got hit (well done Heine Gericke Toureg boots!!). The bike has been carted off to...

    After the bike show I was desperate to have another go on a KTM 950 and seriously contemplated adding one to the fleet. However, I test rode one at 'Premier Bikes' in Didcot and realised the bike was not for me. The bike I rode a couple of years ago was way too tall but, for this year the seat...

    When thinking of motorbike accidents, I always assume it's a matter of when and not if. Luckily I was reasonably well prepared when I was knocked off my AT last Thursday. On a busy road near Victoria Station in London, a car was tailgating me, than overtook and pushed me from my right. My...
