    Anyone on here using Waterless Coolant in their Africa Twin? Apparently it lasts for life, does away with hotspots in the engine, and because boiling point is 180 degrees, overheating is very unlikey. It seems on the face of it a good idea on a bike thats exposed to both very cold conditions and...

    Just noticed one of the local Honda dealers has closed its doors. Pidcocks Honda have relinquished their Honda dealership. The premises remain and they have moved their Triumph dealership there. Oh well, thats where I used to go for bits etc.
