  7. CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling.

    Africa Twin
    CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling. I thought I'd briefly share my journey to achieving the holy grail of a wind and turbulance free ride. Relatively, of course. So, standard screen was, to be frank, rubbish for me. Wind right in the face...
  8. XRV650 RD03, DVLA call my AT a Honda, Unknown, Multi-Coloured

    Africa Twin
    Just applying for a V5 and SORN on the RD03 as I didn't get one with the bike, checked online with the DVLA and its registered as a Honda Unknown Multi-Coloured. As they are all imported do any have the right model on the V5?, or is it because mines from Japan? Any idea if I can get this...

  11. North Wales --> France & Spain --> North Wales

    Transalp
    Well I've decided that the easiest way to do my recent tour trip write up is going to be in the form of a blog. That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here. So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...
  12. Tyres, RD04

    Africa Twin
    Sorry for bringing up what I'm sure is an Old Cheshnut for many ;), but I could do with some advice: I'm about to fit new tyres (RD04) before a 3-week trip to Morocco. That said, most of the riding will be on tarmac, rather than off-road. The advice I've had is Heidenau K60s, but I see that...
  13. Black Box

    Africa Twin
    I don't know what this is ? Black box, inside tool compartment ? Has a toggle switch on top ? Isolator ??..... hefty chunk of (multiple) wiring coming out of it. I'd assumed a 'secret' ignition isolator, if one were fitted, would be pretty much a single wire jobbie ? This has half a...

    Chatter
    Fred Hill died in prison on the 10th February 1984, while fighting against bureaucratic interference with his choice to ride a motorcycle without wearing a crash helmet. Many people may have heard of Fred Hill but not actually know who he was and why he is remembered with such respect by the...

  19. Anyone got a spare front caliper 89 Alp.

    Transalp
    Afternoon and a Happy New Year to All, I've just replaced my pads and given the caliper a clean but think I will need to replace the pistons and seals soonish as mine had some corrosion on the pistons, they seem OK for now but are dragging a bit which will hopefully improve as they bed in but...
  20. I'm Back

    Chatter
    After a disappointing 14 months with a BMW G650GS, I'm returning to Honda tomorrow in the form of a CRF250M. I was going to get a 07 plate 650 Transalp and put the change in the bank. But I decided instead to go for a two bike strategy, CRF250 for short journeys and fun (most of my riding) and...
