    Having just been quoted 6 hrs labour at £60 an hour for a 16K service, I ask is it worth having valve checks on a low revving back, hardly a supersport Any one done it themselves , any tips? 2006 A6 Vara with 16, 500 on the clock - I should have it taken off me for scandalous low use
  3. Africa Twin
    Hi guys I'm really enjoying riding my twin been in all sorts of terrain but after an hour on the stock chair my ass feels like its about to explode. How can I make the long rides on the saddle easier on my ass? P.s I dont have money to buy a corbins aftermarket one. What material can I use...
  4. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Taking the scenic Gairloch - Edinburgh route, really enjoyed the dry singletrack roads after 'biblical' Friday and 'gradually improving' Saturday. Well worth the hour or so's diversion (particularly with new-found confidence in the twisties courtesy Mr Ric Or & his Intiminators!) :)

    Spent an hour in the garage last night making sure the old green girl was ready for next week, and got the urge to start packing! Is this too early? Should I seek proffesional help with this obsession with packing early? All useless comments gratefully received :thumbup: See you there people...

    Ok I might be a day late (or half a hour) but I am sure that your birthday was just after mine. Noticed that you removed it from your profile too. Sneaky s**t:angel4: Happy birthday, even if I am late, and all the best...

    From the BBC - Norway's NRK broadcasts 12-hour wood burning programme. But like the man said - "Fire is the reason we're here, if there was no firewood, we couldn't live in Norway, we'd freeze. :D

    Good news for bikers?? (or possibly divers!!) In theory, we should now be able to wear waterproof clothing made of tissue? BBC News - Gadgets 'made waterproof in an hour' :toothy3:
  10. Competitions / Trials
    Been watching the Dakar coverage on YouTube, and so far the scenery has been blowing me away. But what is happening to Despres? Without Coma as his team mate, and main competitor, I was expecting him to romp it. Currently he's almost half an hour off the lead. Iain

  13. Other Honda
    Finally the weather relented enough for me to take some of my pension out for its first ride of the season The best thing about only riding it very occasionally is that you forget just what a perfectly designed bike it really is, never fails to make me giggle like a schoolboy once on the...

  16. Off Topic Lounge
    Having spent an hour half-naked in a room with a large rugby player earlier this week I am a complete convert to the osteopathy cause. After six months of aches and stooping I walked out of there and when I got home hit my head on a lampshade I'd never noticed before. Marvellous! If you have...

    I'm planning a stag do, and at the moment we are looking at having the night out in Glasgow. So, my question, what offroady type stuff can be done within an hour of Glasgow on a Saturday in May? Half of us are bikers (transalps) the remainder willing. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I just watched the first two Chilean miners come to the surface in Fenix 2. What those guys have been through defies words. Can you imagine what those first 17 days must have been like for them, not knowing if you'd be found, or even if anyone was looking for you anymore, and had abandoned you...
