  1. Where is my XR from.

    Hi Guys 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...
  2. Christian the lion...

    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..
  3. Clarke 3/8" Drive Reversible Torque Wrench

    Product Reviews
    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...
  4. Decisions and Choices....

    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...

  6. Weird CD's

  8. Wake up call..............

    Africa Twin
    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...

  11. New bike

    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.
  12. My @ needs you!

    Africa Twin
    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...
