  1. Nice picture IMHO

    BMW
    I just found a website that's worth spending a few moments reading , to bad it's only in Swedish. I would like to share this picture with you that I found on this website: http://mctouring.se/mctouring/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/CIMG2816.jpg The Website is: mctouring | MC Touring när den är...
  2. Crossrunner test - ultimate allrounder???

    Crossrunner / Crosstourer
    Crossrunner test ride Having done some mileage on my '92 vfr 750, I was a little more than interested to test Paul's (24ftlb) Crossrunner...... The opportunity arose on Sunday in a very sunny & slightly busy Peak District! Upon sitting on the bike, it feels surprisingly light & compact...
  3. Anakee 3

    Transalp
    Anyone been trying out the michelin's new Anakee 3 yet? I've just bought a new rear anakee 2 and put in storage as I noticed they seem to be getting increasingly harder to find since the launch of its replacement. I'm not convinced that the Anakee 3 is a true dual purpose tyre but looks a...
  4. New Toy

    Yamaha
    Couple of pictures of my latest toy Having already owned a 660 Tenere, IMHO the “R” version of the 660 kicks ass. Lighter (easier to pick up without popping a vertebra when you drop it :rolleyes: :D), more flickable and you get than “wind in yer face” effect with it not having a fairing...
  5. Docklands Riders Club

    Chatter
    On the good advice from Whealie, I eventually booked my two boys aged 12 and 9 on a day out at the above. Chris, I have but two words for you....THANK YOU!!!! What a brilliant afternoon. I was so impressed with both lads that I was almost in tears. Leonardo was given a 75cc Honda with...
  6. Advice needed in Mongolia: Transalp output shaft/ sprocket/ retainer problem, Urgent

    Transalp
    Hi guys I'm nearing the end of my 7 week trip through Central Asia, Altai-Russia and Mongolia. I have a problem, I think, and would be really grateful for suggestions/ comments/ possible solutions. It is also urgent as I fly home to England next weekend (today Sat 25th Aug, flight Sat 1st...
  7. First impression of my F800GS

    BMW
    I thought I just share some impressions from the first longer trip done on my F800GS. Quality: Do not like the plastic handlebar pods. I would prefere to have them in good old aluminium. Finish: So far so good. Sound: It sounds like... a Boxer! BMW have IMHO managed to create quite a good and...
  8. Black & White

    BMW
    IMHO this is a tasty combination: The red & black 75" is nice too
  9. Happy Easter all!

    Chatter
    Sorry there will be no Easter Bunny this Year: And here is an Honda CB400N that has been rebuilt using taste (IMHO) more than dollars. I'm showing it here because it's Easter Yellow, and it's a Honda.
  10. Edward Tudor Pole & Tamara Beckwith

    Chatter
    Tunnel of Love - Cafe Racer - Kurzfilm von 1977 um das Thema Motorrad und Sex - kultig Video.flv - YouTube Well worth the 12 min. it takes to watch IMHO.
  11. Even the banana and jelly babies couldn't save me this time...

    Chatter
    Well, today was the day of my Mod 1 test. Despite some intensive practice just lately (many many thanks to Chris, Dave and Sandy at Charnwood), I woke with a sick feeling in my stomach. I followed advice from Instructor no. 1 and started the day with a banana for slow release of energy. I set...
  12. Fuel tap thread question: PD06 Transalp/ RD04 Africa Twin

    Transalp
    Hi guys Hope someone can help. Without going into the whole story, I’m looking to replace my 1987 Pd06 Transalp fuel tap from the oem one with the stupid (IMHO) vacuum hose attachment (that magically turns the fuel off when it wants to… not when I want to, and hence my bike stops when I don’t...
  13. Swap: Tiger T400 'Steamer' for smaller more off road orientated machine.

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hi all, sometimes you really want something, only to be given it to find out it isn't really what your after (what a waffly start) I have a great looking Steamer called Toni (The best looking Tigers imho), she is loverly but doesn't take me where I want/ need to go (probably in a large part...
  14. XR250R fuel tank

    XR
    Hi I 'm considering replacing the plastics on my 1999 XR250R as they are very scuffed and cracked in a few places. I would like to change it from white to red (looks much nicer and it's the proper Honda colour imho) found all the plastics (almost) except the fuel tank :( I have been watching...
  15. Chunnel v Ferry. Channel Crossings

    Travel
    Obviously living in Germany I’ve made the journey back and forth on many occasions. I’ve used every method of getting across that is on offer (although I haven’t swam or rowed across in a rubber dingy….yet) Anyway, easily the cheapest & best route is Calais – Dover. We now have two options Ferry...
  16. DIY 'Pooratech' Panniers

    Bodgers Corner
    Hi there I know this has been done before, and I think I saw something on this very site last year when I was working out how to do it - although as I hadn't bought my 'Alp at that time, I wasn't otherwise aware of the excellent forum here. My main mount for the last 8 years has been a Royal...
  17. Test rode a 700!

    Transalp
    I woke up on Thursday (was off work) & thought "I fancy a go on a 700 Alp" - I'm not one for test riding a bike just for the sake of it but have recently spoken to people who have experienced both & I have been left more than a little intrigued, so I decided to pop into Hunts of Manchester...
  18. Went for a spin with a load of 1200GS over the weekend

    Varadero
    And all I can say is, as much as I loved my 1100 in days gone by. My 2001 Vara is a match for the 1200.... More grunt... Great handling. Poor fuel:confused: Seriously, after now having covered a massive 1500 Miles on the Vara, I cannot understand why some people say they are a soulless bike. May...
  19. Not a true Newbie

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi, Just like to introduce myself. Been stalking this forum for ages before joining earlier this year. So time to put my bike out there. Bought my RD07early in 2006 with 6000 on the clock and rode her home from Belfast without getting my feet wet. Bit of a home coming as she started life...
  20. Ultimate Ear - great service

    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    I've had their monitors and have used them all the time for 19 months now One of the wires has started to frey at the earplug causing loss of sound to one ear. I rang them up on Monday and they requested I send them on so they can look at them Posted Tuesday 12/5 last week, I got a phone...
