  1. Have Fun in Winter Riding in Comfort with Heated Gear from Best Brands on the Market

    You may want to extend your riding season into winter months, but cold weather threatens to cut your trip short when you feel your toes and fingers freezing. Lack of blood circulation in your extremities makes your feet and hands numb, which increases your reaction time making winter riding...
  2. Nx650 Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX
    Well it's been some time in the making but my first custom bike build is now complete.:D Got to the point where I just wanted it on the road, so still a bit 'ratty' and might strip it all down again one day. But just passed it's MOT and already chucking about some green lanes. To be used and...
  3. Dear Pepe. I wish you were here.

    Dominator / FMX
    The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...
  4. Bored with your Varadero? Enter "Project Varaturnipstorm or Fireturnipdero"

    Project VaraTurnipStorm or FireTurnipDero. Now I know I’m still working on the Tracker project, but after thinking of this name I just had to start a thread before someone else does & pinches the title. Ha. The idea has come around after reading up about various Harley XR750 flat track based...
  5. For sale: Leo Vince xl700 connector pipe

    Hi, I haven't been around for a while, having sold the transalp to my brother. He uses it mostly for touring, and so finds the setup of connector pipe and Leo Vince exhaust a bit loud (but it's great fun for hooning around). I've reinstalled the original HEAVY! silencer box for him and am now...
  6. RD03 Project

    Africa Twin
    Hello guys, I am in the process of rebuilding an old grandma, my RD03 that I bought 10 years ago for a trip to Magadan. That trip never happen since I got married (haha, it is not funny, it might happen to you too). This winter I started a hidden project, my dream bike restoration. I...
  7. For Sale: Honda Dominator tracker/scrambler

    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    I want to sell my bike due to lack of use. Not sure of its value but am open to serious cash offers. The bike is in Denmark so will have to be collected.

  8. Touring Tips

    I’m a strong believer in less is more when it comes to touring speed, a rider can withstand more hours at 65mph for example than 75, especially if they stop every hour for 10 mins rest. I’m riding 250 miles on Friday but in no particular hurry, so thought it might be fun to try a programme of...
  9. [xrv750] carburetor gasket question

    Africa Twin
    Hello there! I was rebuilding my carbs while looking at the Honda fiches, and saw that a gasket on my carb is positioned differently. On the fiches, the order is: 28-1-15, so the metal collar (15) sits on the carb, the gasket (1) sits on the metal collar, and the plastic plate (28) sits on the...
  10. She's alive again.

    Dominator / FMX
    As you know I had some issues with the bike, two new CDI's from ebay and nothing, some coughing and spluttering but the bike wasn't starting reliably and then the carb decided to piss fuel all over the garage floor. Carb was fixed easy enough, broke the choke but had a spare, still with the crap...
  11. Bulb weirdness

    Dominator / FMX
    A curious thing, ladies and gentlemen... Yesterday I went to pick up my bike from a mate who had done a bit of welding for me (that's another story...) Before leaving his place I checked the lights were working. No tail / brake light. My mate said he had checked all was working after doing the...

  15. Down sizing from AT

    Africa Twin
    I finally passed my driving test a few weeks ago and have bought a car, A pig ugly Fiat Doblo. So bike is no longer my only transport. A mate has been nagging me to buy a smaller dirt bike to use in The Brecon beacons. Which makes sense, summer commuting and having fun. My AT is tired...

  17. XL700 repeated loss of power/cut out

    Took my 2009 Xl700 for it's first proper 'long' ride today, 100 miles down to cornwall - fine, all smooth, very happy. On the way back about 30 miles in there was a sudden loss of power, engine spluttering like it had no fuel- even out of gear it would not rev past 3000. Pulled over, checked...
