  3. Africa Twin
    While checking when things run out on the bikes and cars i noticed you can check the history of the MOT's back as far as 2006 and found in 2008 (before i owned it) my RD07 failed due to the headlight aim too low how petty is that, the place i take mine to would have adjusted that free of charge...
  4. Africa Twin
    Hi chaps and chapesses Although I'm not new to the forum I haven't been on here in a while. Yesterday I chopped in my 2005 1150 gsa for a 2002 AT. Just fancied a change and always wanted an AT. Wanted to get back on to some trails and I was never going to do that on the gsa. Just got bored of...

    I wanted to keep the air box on my bike but Pepe needed more air. Long storry short........I've now got a super sorted bike with a super trap exhaust (sounds lovely) a 175 jet and a 62mm pod air filter housed in the original air box and he's pulling wheelies in 1st and 2nd gear off the...

    Had my 1990 domi back from the mechanic last week with a full service and new MOT ( 1st one since 1993 ) Taxed online and away to go. First spin was over the Cray to Sennybridge for a coffee and then back home through Llandovery. I cruised between 50 and 60 and took her up to 70 briefly and came...

    This is a thread just gagging to get off the ground innit ? Looks like Bob will be first up if he makes it home safely in this weather from Crawley today ! :D ( Only post please if you've actually left the dealers with your new bike and a fat grin ! :) ) (Most of the Original AT's still on...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I've posted on here before when I had my old XL500R but last week I finally got an Africa Twin and I haven't stopped grinning! She's a 1998 RD07A with 55,000 miles on. After doing a motorway run this weekend, I set off expecting to do 150 miles without stopping for fuel. The tank was...

    I just want to say thank a big you to everyone who's posted info on here about the XL700. I'm not a great person for posting up & asking but the historical info on here that I've found helpful has been great. I've used the bike no end since buying it, so much so the ST1300 only gets used when...
  12. Transalp
    After 3 months with my 700 TA it has now departed for pastures new. I never really gelled with it the way I did with my previous 650s - it is, as many have observed, a different beast apparently aimed at a different market. For a while I was intending to change it for another 650 but I got...

  14. Transalp
    As a relative newbie to the world of Transalpery, I have a question ; is the 600 TA noted for having a particularly heavy throttle? or do I just need to eat more spinach? Throttle moves nice and freely with the cable(s) unhooked from the carbs so it's not the cable(s) seizing up but it is...

    I am having a problem with my teenage son. We have been talking about buying him his first bike so he can take his A1 licence and we discussed buying him a Honda XR 125 as his first bike. He found a video of a Yamaha DT 125R and this is the bike he now wants. Do you guys have any suggestions of...

    I love my @ After nearly 4 weeks of not being able to do a long ride due to a knee injury, today I took a ride north west, ending up at Lochinver, just to find out if the knee could take the strain. It did, helped in no small part to the @. After over 290 miles, the knee did ache a little...

    Hi all, took the Transalp out for a wee run today, a mere 175 miles from Speyside to Strathdon and back. From Morayshire I headed for Carr Bridge then on through to Aviemore for a quick visit to the Cairngorm mountain to see if there was any snow left! I then headed over the Brig a Broon to...
  18. Moto Guzzi
    She's a real beauty, low miles, 2 owners( last one less than a year???) serviced and tyred Love the look of it, seems well priced££ compared to others on the market. Reviews are a bit hit or miss, I don't like the sound of oil leaks and rust. Head vs heart vs wife and bank manager... This year I...

    Just a few snaps from a run out today with youngest son. Into some hills we went, trying to find some sunshine. Nice run of around 170 miles, taking in the sights along the river Findhorn near it’s source, then onto and over some hills to the south of Inverness on a little road...

    I have a site hack for working on Skye, it's a Citroen Nemo van, great little thing for grifting along the deserted roads on Skye. Know I shouldn't, but I'm in and out of the van that much that I rarely put my driver's seat belt on, I just stick the passenger seat belt clip into my drivers...
