I am planning on selling off my PanEuropean barge and get something a bit smaller.
I am a boring old thing and want a sensible reliable bike that i can do my own maintenance on.
I am also hoping to go and invade the Picos De Europa next year.
If you wanted to understand how it happened, read on….

all of his customers are unemployed alcoholics and, as such, can no longer
afford to patronise his bar. To solve this problem, he comes up with new
Unfortunately I have just become an ex-customer or Wemoto. There is nothing wrong with the firm itself but they are using FedEx to deliver and this is proving a nightmare. FedEx just told me, as if it is a fair excuse, that they pay their self-employed drivers £1.60 per item to deliver them and...
I'm almost certainly not going to be able to make the TLD ride this year. Work has been looking less perminant for a while now and unfortunately I will now not be employed at the time of the TLD - thus not able to afford to go :(
Wish everyone a safe and fun journey, I will...

San Francisco, 1906. (Music by Air - La Femme D'Argent)
Turn up the volume and travel back in time!
This film was "lost" for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever. It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car.
The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Notice...
I was worrying about work at 0230 so couldn't sleep. It's now 0530 and I'm quite enjoying reading stuff for later today. My father used to do the same. Anyone else work like this? (Mind you, it helps that I am and he was self-employed)
SOLD - 2002 Africa Twin (RWB)
After being made redundant and going self-employed in March last year my faithful old RWB AT has done less than 100 miles (hence my long absence from this forum). So, rather than letting it sit any longer gathering dust, I feel it’s time it was found a new home...
Im trading in my current alp for another so I can have another 4 years on it as im going self employed so wont get finance til then.. I always change every 3/4 years.

Big debate to post here but here goes.
I've done 30k on my 08 TA700 and loved every moment. I've dealt with the usual warranty issues with an exhaust upgrade awaiting me at my dealers. I've added all the accessories I could need/use within limits.
I've commuted daily in all weathers and...
The campaign to encourage biking, Get On, says changes in Alistair Darling’s budget mean the self-employed buying a motorcycle for work can put the whole cost against tax.
For higher rate taxpayers with could result in savings of 40% of the cost of a new bike. It would still wipe off more...
