    Looking for a fuse box that will take normal blade fuses. 4/5 way, trying to tidy the old girl up. What with sat nav, heated grips, optimate & spotlights it's a mess. What has everyone done/used?

    I have no clue if anyone on this forum is affected by this but I'll post it just as a precaution: Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX 1200 / Norge 1200 / Griso 1200 Recall Moto Guzzi Canadian Recall for Stelvio, Griso and Norge And I guess if it's true in Canada, it must be true in the U.K. too.

    This might only apply to car insurance, but it is probably best to make sure that you are dealing with legitimate insurance brokers. From the BBC - Fake car insurance brokers As the old saying goes - if it looks too good to be true, then is probably is. 100% free webcam site! | Awesome...

    Saw a RWB @'er faced with the ultimate AT dilemma yesterday. That discerning moment when you have to take the choice and live with the consequences of your actions.....Whether you should accept defeat and pull over to the side of the road to change to 'reserve' or continue riding along like a...

    Anyone got any experience of earplugs from Ultimate Ear? Having just rediscovered how noisy my Vara is I have decided I need some good ear plugs. I really can't get on with foam one's or the Alpine style one's - i cant them in properly meaning they slowly come out and rub on my helmet. I...

    Got on the AT yesterday morning and noticed that the fuel pump sounded a bit louder than I was expecting. It usually pipes up a bit when I'm running low on fuel but since I should have at least 70 miles to reserve I thought this to be a bit odd. So I stopped to have a look and noticed that the...

    About a year and a half ago I got one of those cheap battery chargers from lidl when they had their bike stuff on sale, and I've been using it to keep the battery on my 125 and the @T topped up while I haven't been using them. When I let my little 125 battery run right down once, I noticed it...

    ...riding into work today, behind the ultimate ditherer, a woman in a Merc, coming out of a side junction. She goes, she stop, she goes, she stops, then finally she goes....then stops halfway across the road, for no readily apparent reason. I'm at nearly full lock trickling behind her, have to...
