Long time since I posted on here, but I've just found a rare treat in need of some love:p
I say rare because bikes of any size are anyway extremely difficult to find here in Myanmar, but an AT is an even more stunning find:thumbright:
This one is up for sale for around 1800 US$ so I'm sooo...
Hmmm, i recently chopped out 2 hubs, relacing new rims. BUT, now i don't know which was a rd04 & which a 07a. No big deal, but hey according to lings

Hmmm, just noticed my vinyl starting to crack, so have to think about a re-cover - anyone had any experience about the kits on ebay - ranging from some smart-looking (in the photos) dual colour ones for 44 quid, up to some German replacements, where you send off the whole seat. As the bike is...
...Partly 'cause I'm a lazy interweb surfer, partly 'cause I don't tend to expand my horizons to look at other interesting topics, mostly though 'cause the bookmark I link via is to the Africa Twin section here?
I guess, I could have posted this topic on the main site but as I 95% only read and...
I have had my AT for a few weeks.
it came with three keys, ignition, tank and seat. Hmm.
I just ordered a matching set of locks and keys from Hamart.
They turned up quickly. Cool.

Wont turn either way, just stuck.
We were planning to 'do' NZ in march, but it looks like that'll go on hold for the moment...sooo, maybe time to change the horse in the stable;)
Just found this...
BMW R1150GS als Enduro/Reiseenduro in Darmstadt
Took the bike to Austria today and the missus followed in the car with our bike trailer on the back...I used 13 litres of unleaded, and she used 10 litres of diesel!!
Admittedly she had to keep to the German speed limit of 80km/h with the trailer, but she certainly crept up to 100 at times...
i'm picking up a 2006 xl650v transalp for my friend this week. Nothing concrete yet.... BUT, he's seen my 1998 xrv750 rd07a africa twin spare engine on my bench, & was asking if the cylinders & heads would go on current engine. Any thoughts anyone?

hmmm.... no fairing, engine fairings, clocks, tripmaster, head-lights or holder, + other bits missing, milage? (speedo off another bike), doesn't know why it's been stripped. why doesn't he just sell/lend me the engine?
I'm a newbie from North Wales
I've just bought a really manky XL600R (RMG I think - still trying to figure out what the differences are). The initial idea was to tidy it up a bit and ride it as-is, but now I've got my mucky paws on it I can feel a major rebuild coming on.
I'm new to...
Ive been offered an 01 955i tiger with 15k on it and i find myself sorely tempted !!!!. The price is right too.:D
The KTM is not going, just got the itch for another bike :rolleyes: it would save puttin high miles on the orange beastie tho.:D:D.
Should I :rolleyes:.............Hmmm.
I've been lookin at one of these for the Ironbutt rides next year.:rolleyes:
On the advice of Yeti it seems to be the perfect weapon for this sort of thing.:confused::confused:
