    Following on from Ralphie's admission to being a mere 40 years old this year and a couple of comments in recent posts, how many of us are : 1 Celebrating the half century 2 Well into ten years of Sanatogen 3 Starting to qualify for Saga Holidays 4 Two score and ten 5 Bulls eye 6 Can't get...

    Distanzas seem to have a good following here and when my tyre man suggested them for the winter I jumped at it. Well, after 10 years and over 100k miles of riding I finally had a "proper" off. Approaching a set of lights (within speed limits and a run I have done everyday for nearly 10 years)...

    Once my dear, dear AT has been sold I'd like to invest in a more offroadable bike and as I've never owned one a two smoke rather appeals. Looking around for trail bikes rather than crossers or enduro bikes I've found a GasGasPampera locally. It's done 350 (three hundred and fifty!) miles sine...

    It's been in my uncle's garage for the past 12 months and was last used about 10 months ago. Consequently, it needed a few things fixing on it, so i took it to be fixed last weekend. I received a phone call before, saying the cost of repair will be £1017.96. It also needs a full service and MOT...

    Keep getting this strange misfire, flat spot thingy..... Its intermittent and I can't make it happen deliberately but this is the usual story... Usually happens going into a decent corner - about fifty or so, feather the throttle while I judge the corner, then as I open up again I get no...

    I never thought the AT's rear light was very good - a bit dim, and only a single bulb, which isn't very reliable. LEDs are better than bulbs, but I haven't seen anything any good until now - proper LED lights are big panels with lots of LEDs in then, the wee LED things that plug in replace...
