    In my lifetime, never has a Prime Minister been equally loved and loathed. Love her or hate her, right or wrong, the Iron lady stuck to her convictions. So, your thoughts, and perhaps time for a new poll. :hitler:
  2. Africa Twin
    Hi all can you tell me if I can fit one of those converter things to the speedo of my twin? ( a bit loathed to admit I have brought on without knowing if it can be fitted) thought I would ask?

    My first Honda was a 650TA and I loved it. Changed to the 700, after a three year affair with a Triumph 955i and loathed it. Bought another 650 and sold the 700. Happy again. Is there a moral to this story ?

  6. Africa Twin
    I am in the process of giving my 2002 RD07A some loving care, and have started to strip the suspension linkage down. Only the U shaped bit that hinges on the frame has completely seized. In fact it's the bolt that has seized to the collar/insert. I've taken the centre stand and exhaust off of...

  13. For Sale / Wanted
    been using these for a while and theyre great as tony the tiger says :D palm sized cable locks on a reel, that fit in your pocket and are very light weight but very strong. More of a deterant to opportunist thieves. Ideal for alluminium panniers as they can fit thru the latch and being...
  14. Transalp
    Cheers for looking people. Two weeks ago the T/A speedo packed up and after checking everything out I ended up replacing the £20 circle of toothed white plastic from Honda :mad: that joins the cable end 'worm' mech to the wheel mech as it was shredded and had no teeth left - I guessed that this...

    Right you lot. Sit up at the back and pay attention. Today I took a 2010 GSA out for a few hours for a bit of fun and here are my thoughts. I'll where possible compare to my Vara 1000 mainly due to that being the only bike I have to compare to (unless you count the Honda c90 in the garage)...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    Hi, the Domminator's rebuild progresses.... I now have a bike that runs, stops (sort of - anyone got a set of brakes they want to sell?), has a neutral and stand lamp and does not leak fluids (other than a small oil leak at the top of the head somewhere). Today however, I noticed that the...
