  4. Transalp
    Hi there! I just bought very nice 89 Transalp and am looking for a low seat option. The only ones I can find here in the States are quite expensive and take quite some time to be ready. Anyone know of anything available across the pond, either new or used? Any insight would be greatly...

    Fitting a MOSFET Reg/Rect has been on my to do list for some time. All the bits arrived from the USA a few days ago so decided I would do the upgrade even though (I thought) the OEM was fine. I'm glad I did because the Alternator connector was showing signs of burning even though it was perfect...

    Just back from a long weekend in Wales. I found some fantastic trails and I did the "Wayfarer", which is the first trail that I've been on that was long enough for me to be glad it was coming to an end. There are loads of trails here in the Peak District but they tend to be short. The Wayfarer...

  8. Dominator / FMX
    I decided to give my Dommie a shakedown this weekend because I just treated myself to a Belstaff Trailmaster which is a jacket I owned back in the day. After half an hour , the heavens opened and I am glad to say the jacket was great but my boots let the side down. The jacket only cost me €150...

    I have read the legends of what a **** of a job this can be so I lashed out on a pivoting ratchet spanner, about six quid on fleabay to go with the standard Honda box spanner. Damn glad that I did, I lose track of which was the most painful left front I think. A standard ring spanner would have...

    Went from Scunthorpe to Knaresborough today. A bit nippy on the way up but the heated grips helped that. Then whilst I was at my mate's farm admiring his barn find Matchless 650 and engineering equipment the heavens opened. That wasn't supposed to happen :D So I legged it back home but 1hr...

    No it's not a number by Cream (remember them?) but just to say I'm glad I don't hear any more about those 'Iron Butt' looneys who want to do that stuff in Europe. Very dangerous, very pointless and very expensive. :rolleyes: I call them 'Conquistadors of the Useless.' There was time when this...
