  3. Varadero fuel pump

    Varadero
    It's a well known achilles heel of the AT, but does the Vara suffer from the same problem? Do I need to keep an eye out for my fuel pump going down? If it does, is the prefered solution to put in a facet pump? It all seems fine at the moment - I'm just thinking of the future. BTW, I've searched...

    Riding
    Lately I've seen more and more bikers cutting other bikers up, riding way to close to the bike in front, not giving way or pulling over for other faster riders, not 'giving the nod/heel kick/hand wave etc' when passing or being allowed to pass by other bikers or just to say thanks to car...

  19. Big feet?

    Africa Twin
    I'm sure that some of you other "Team Lanky" members also have ludicrously large feet like me. Do you find that the exhaust cover gets in the way of your right heel? It's no problem for short runs, but on longer trips (or when standing on the pegs) it's beginning to irritate me. Anyone else...
