  1. Other Bikes
    Having just returned from another cracking weekend at the LeMans 24hr (bikes). On the track, one bike stood out to all the rest, those simple, classic lines & an engine note different to all the others - sounding more like a Ducati than a four - it was an RC30! One of, if not the most beautiful...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    I love my Dommi, in fact I've sold some of my other bikes as I just don't use them anymore. I've just ordered a 43T rear sprocket to go with the 15 front, so it doesn't rev as hard on the motorway, although I cruise at 60-65 anyway. The lure of the extra power and 'tourability' of the Africa is...

    Just fitted an MiVV Carbon can, doesn't quite follow the lines of the side panel, but still looks good IMHO. And of course, a chance to show off :D
  4. Helmets
    Had my first ride into work on my (new to me) TA and my newly purchased AraiTour X helmet. What a difference, I'd replaced my 'past its best' Arai quantum and the difference is incredible. Even with a fog city insert the quantum misted up constantly. The tour x (with pin lock) doesn't mist...

    Goodmorning Guys, just seen the new TA 700 for 2009 new colours and it really looks amazing IMHO. New colours is a blue with white and gold rims !! and a black one. more info at www.hondaitalia.com or at these links...

    For sale my 'ARROW' exhaust. It's a bit old now but has no dents, knocks, or any faults at all apart from needing a good cleaning. It’s also totally solid no loose joints or nothing. My AT was nicked a few months back and I’m not planning to get another one yet if at all. It has a removable...
  9. XR
    My XR's due in for an MOT tomorrow. The exhaust is noisy (IMHO) and the number plate's not legal. :D We'll see what they say. I may need to have a legal number plate made up and velcro'd over the top. :-)

    Hello I have just changed the tyres on my bike and i have the old front tyre. it was too good to put into the skip so its up for anyone who wants it its a off road tyre. the back tyre died in about 2.5k miles...(very soft and cheap) but the front one still has lots of miles left in it it...

    I now own my 2 favorite vehicles from recent motorsport history, a Celica GTFour (nicely modded for killer handling and about 300bhp) and an Africa Twin (Black and therefore fast...!). Both were (imho) the icons of their era in their respective motorsports and I love owning them, but what are...

    Here are the pics (fingers crossed). The old tired oe exhaust Holed in the clamp area - possibly blocked drain hole? The old one literally fell off due to the clamp being completely rusted through! It was an absolute doddle to fit, and very well made. The rubber on the mounting strap...

    Hi, I have finally owned a bike long enough for it to become necessary to replace parts due to wear and tear! (that must say something about the TA) 4 years and 30k miles and the TA's std exhaust is finally rotted through. So what better excuse to replace with something a little nicer?!! I...
  14. Transalp
    Distanzas seem to have a good following here and when my tyre man suggested them for the winter I jumped at it. Well, after 10 years and over 100k miles of riding I finally had a "proper" off. Approaching a set of lights (within speed limits and a run I have done everyday for nearly 10 years)...

    Hi, I am going to be ordering an Alloy sump guard for the 650 Alp from Graves in the Czech Republic, a very good looking guard (IMHO) and at a reasonable price. The guard goes right to the centre stand mounting point, covering the whole underside of the engine (needs removing to change the oil)...

    Anyone seen this months TBuM? A review of the Aprilia RXV (as you may have guessed :roll: ) In a box at the end of the piece is "...the company are looking to take the bike into the rally-raid scene" Mentioned are a fairing, an oil cooler and a 30 litre fuel tank "amongst other 'desert'...

    After riding 1300 miles this week for work on the AT I have started to get some doubts about my bike; despite the improved seat (gel-pad implant) my arse is still on fire (and not because I am the only gay in the village :lol: ), the bike is pretty wide to manouvre through really tight trafic...

    In an "altercation" between a black ( the fastest colour! ) AT and a ( black, the stupidest colour, IMHO! ) Ford Escort on the North Circular this afternoon the AT came off better. I've a 10pence sized dent in my crash bar (SS Motad!), he needs a new wing, a door skin and a drivers mirror...

    Anyone know how motorcycles are affected? Do they publish CO2 emissions for motorcycles, like they do for cars? Motorcycles should be tax-free IMHO, if small cars are...

    After the bike show I was desperate to have another go on a KTM 950 and seriously contemplated adding one to the fleet. However, I test rode one at 'Premier Bikes' in Didcot and realised the bike was not for me. The bike I rode a couple of years ago was way too tall but, for this year the seat...
