I just bought an XR last night but i dont know what spec it is and I thought some of you guys may be able to identify it.
Looking at the chart above it does not belong in any of the categories because it has a glass headlight, switchgear for indicators but no evidence of...
If you havent seen it before..
Christian the lion was raised by humans in 1969 and then released into the wild. Watch the cat’s reaction when these people return to see him a year later..
After all the positive reviews I suppose its time for a negative one.
I bought this low price (£16) torque wrench from Clarke tools at Machine Mart a year or so and while it doesn't get a huge amount of use, as I have a better one for the higher torque settings, it as still seen a fair bit of...
I have just ordered a new Transalp, but havent decided on the colour... The dealer has informed me I can take my pick when the bikes all turn up in April. Has anyone been offered a GT pack from their local Honda dealer when ordering their new bike or is the GT deal only available on the select...

I thought I would write this while it was fresh in my mind.
Just 30 minutes ago a man died while I was holding his hand. A fellow
motorcyclist who probably just misjudged his entry speed into the first
corner on the town side of Suikerbossie hill. This little misjudgement cost
him his life. He...
I've just spoken to the Bikesafe London organisers - they're happy for the XRV riders to have a day for themselves with the Metropolitan Police Motorcycle Task Force :cool: (to give them their proper title) for assessment, advanced riding theory and a couple of practical rides - AND LUNCH !!! :D...
Having just taken delivery of my new transalp, and an absense of 20 years of being on the road, I found the bike to be brilliant, why I havent had one before I don't know. I have also got my 17 year old son a 125 varedero and he loves it, only done 100 miles over Christmas, but good fun.
Between 1200 - 3000 revs, every 30 seconds to 2 minutes (it's not regular) the engine gives a hesitation, so brief it's like snapping your fingers and it's gone. It's as if it dies for a split second, then runs normally.
It may happen at higher revs when running, but I dont notice it...
Hopefully i will be off to Morocco in the new year to catch a few stages of the Dakar.

Has anyone ever used GOOP? You know the goo that you put inside your tyre tube in case you get small punctures? I bought some but havent yet put it in the tube... i keep hearing baaaad things about it, but it sounds quite a sensible idea for those of us who commute.
Seems i havent been in for a while:D
Anyway, never got round to getting an AT, stuck with my Triumphs and various trailies for muckin about in the mud.
