  1. CG125 Tank Mods

    Dominator / FMX
    Just wondering if anyone got any photos or advice for the modifications needed to fit my CG125 tank to my Dominator?? Any Help would be much appreciated? As they say, a photo worth a thousand words, so a photo of the underside of a modified tank would be ideal.

  4. 2001 Varadero, fitting a TA bash plate

    I have a 2001 Varadero and planning a trip across Russia. I am thinking that a bash plate would be ideal but think the Touratech one doesn't cover enough so was wondering about fitting a TA bash plate. I have seen it fitted to later models but not the 2001 one. IS it possible.

  7. Baby Vara?

    I saw one yesterday and I thought it looked really neat with its travel boxes and all. Anyone have any comment on these bikes? They seem ideal with all these mental fuel prices. And big enough to be comfortable on a long trip.... The only bad thing I read was that the engine is "quite spunky"...

  9. Africa Twin Wheel Advice

  17. What would ideal bike be?

    I'd go for a dual-sport like the TA, but with about 70bhp. Good looks (my TA looks great from some angles, but from others it has a face only it's mother could love! Think same applies to the AT). None-garish paintjob. Decent windblast and weather protection. Less than 200kgs. Not physically...
