    Howdy lads and ladies I've picked up an 85 XL 250 which as far as I can make out is an XLX250R and seems to have been a model for Brazil, Oz, NZ and Japan but not sure.

  5. Dominator / FMX
    Howdy - here's hoping this is a simple one - last week I tried to start my 96 dominator, turned over healthily enough a few times, but instead of catching, it made a slightly more graunchy noise than normal. Since then I just get a loud click from behind the battery, which is new and fully...
  6. Transalp
    Howdy, developed a nice 1'' hole in the 2-to-1 pipe section of my exhaust, and whilst she sounds awesome uncaged I doubt she'd make MOT. This is on top of my already knackered muffler with its missing chrome exhaust tip. Been looking around the net and I can't find replacement 2-to-1 pipes...

  9. XL
    Howdy, y'all. I thought you might expect a Yank to begin like that ;) I have a '78 XL 125 I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions. The good: under 700 miles on it. The bad: Out in the weather for a long time. I just got the piston unstuck and the muffler may be beyond repair. First question: The...

    Mad Dave from sunny Manchester here. After riding a V-Strom and 1150GS then onto an 1100 dragstar for a couple of years I was seduced today by a nice shiny black 09 plate Varadero at Hunts motorcycles. Well after some wheeling and dealing and a lowering kit thrown in I took the plunge and will...

  14. Africa Twin
    Howdy mates, Dunno what kind of summer you're having in your part of the world (Hopefully a bright and warm one). I thought I'd post a few photos from the Pacific coast. Wild Rhododendrons in the Redwoods: Wild blackberries on Kings Ridge Road: The rule is: you have to eat (the berries...
