  1. Wanted: Old Front Brake Discs

    For Sale / Wanted
    A strange request I know, but does anyone have any old front brake discs for an RD04 lying around? I’m upcycling an unserviceable front wheel into a clock for my garage and I think it’ll look better with a disc on it. Happy to pay for postage. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Damp Garage or Open Car Port?

    Africa Twin
    Hi there, Well its winter again here in northern Germany. Bloody freezing and damp.

The bike gets a coating of moisture in the...

    So, on Friday night I parked my '07 650 TA in the garage, everything was fine. On the Saturday morning I tried to fire it up and it just spun on the starter with no hint of life.

    Transalp
    Hi, Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question. Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...
