  2. Spooky, or what

    I've not checked on the authenticity of the facts listed in this; it could all be totally made up crepe. But if it's real it's worrying. Particularly the Wingdings bit! The Secret behind the number 11 1) New York City has 11 letters 2) Afghanistan has 11 letters. 3) Ramsin Yuseb has 11...
  3. General Enquiry

    Hi Guys I have this idea in my head that I would like to get rid of my AT and CBR1000F and go for a newish (2006) Varadero. My idea being that the XL1000V will do, in one, what the other 2 bikes do. The only thing that concerns me is the apparent 'thirst' for petrol this thing has - I've...

  7. fellow Dakar fans!

    With recent talk about 'dust to glory' this may be of interest too..... lets be honest there are more books on the dakar then any raid event, and most are a 3rd party view which is often fairly badly backed up in the facts department :evil: :evil: , however at last there is a new book that is...

  9. Next bike? Recommendations?

    Africa Twin
    I need to face facts that come the end of next year my 2002 AT will be out of warranty. I did make a pledge a number of years ago to keep buying bikes that are in warranty so over the last few years I've renewed my bike every year or so. I've had 2 AT's now, but obviously with them out of...
