    Ride Reports and Pictures
    The Cheap way down Part 1 I had taken the dog out for a walk on boxing day and thought how great it would be to go for a ride with the roads being empty but I couldn’t even do that since I had sold my Africa Twin a month ago thinking that I wouldn’t be doing much riding over the winter and it...

  9. Motad Venom Can and K & N Air Filter

    Africa Twin
    Just fitted these to my old AT and having returned from a short, wet test flight, I must say, I'm impressed. The acceleration is sharper, and the top gear roll on is much more impressive. Well pleased! :D :D :D :D
  10. winter storage - preservation

    Read somewhere on this forum about using vaseline on the rims ... I mentioned it for a flight mechanic, and he was not very impressed. In normal vaseline there is acids he explained, and thereby corrosion might occur. I was recommended WD40 instead and will go for some silicon spray on the...
