  1. Who's liable for my tools destroyed in fire at workplace ?

    I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight. I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...
  2. Bike Insurance

    Dominator / FMX
    Looking for recommendations for an insurance company for my 92 dominator that's going through the standard scrambler/tracker transformation. Are they easy enough to get covered as a custom bike?
  3. Imported TA insurance?

    Hi all, This is my first post, so please let me know if it is in the wrong place! I am looking at importing a TA from France, via a friend of mine. Will this massively affect the price of insurance? If I save £500 on getting it here and taxing / registering it, will I end up paying that anyway...

  5. New MOT rules exhaust noise???

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm hopeful to get the old Dominator back on the road this month, however a friend advised there are new MOT rules regarding the exhuast noise. His CBR300 recently failed a test with a modified exhaust. Now my Dominator has a single exhaust and its loud, not as loud as some bikes but I'm...

  10. Any Swiss members out there? (Or what to do with a Swiss RD07 frame?)

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, On one of my parts hoarding trips I acquired an RD07 frame. Never needed a frame, but can't resist hoarding XRV parts. It needs blasted and powder-coated, but it seems in a pretty good overall shape. It came from a barn full of bike bits collected over years by a fellow parts hoarder...

    Africa Twin
    I am hoping to spend a couple of days heading to Bath , England towards end of May on bike. Does my insurance i have in Belgium cover me over there since it is part of European Union? Or do I need some sort of supplemental insurance ? Thanks
  12. Another one bites the dust - for now

    Dominator / FMX
    So I have no choice but to cancel the Dominator insurance. This obviously leaves me very vulnerable should the worst happen. The policy has only just renewed but sadly the MOT runs out early March which would mean the policy is invalid according to the documents that I received. I will...

  18. "Crash bars" and the all in one frame.

    Africa Twin
    For the CRF1000L Africa Twin, I have been reading that damage to the frame may entail complete frame replacement, as there is no rear subframe. In addition, I get the impression that the Honda oem accessory bars, are just that, and not implied by Honda to be crash protection. If this is the...
