  3. MOT history check

    Africa Twin
    While checking when things run out on the bikes and cars i noticed you can check the history of the MOT's back as far as 2006 and found in 2008 (before i owned it) my RD07 failed due to the headlight aim too low how petty is that, the place i take mine to would have adjusted that free of charge...

    Bike Shed in a couple of weeks time, and only finished bikes are accepted for show. So to finish the bike off me 'n Johnny B headed down to Salisbury to get a primary drive cover made. Here's Tony pointing at his work of art ( it took him about five hours from scratch to make it). More...
  6. RD07A Tripmaster Refurb.

    Africa Twin
    Just a quick note to relay my experience with my tripmaster repair. My 2002-reg RD07A Tripmaster started to show "ghost" characters. As well as the true LCD character displayed I was also seeing the remaining elements of the character in the display - very confusing and difficult to distinguish...

  13. Head shake. The answer?

    Transalp
    Like many Alp owners Ive found that at low speeds, 25-40 mph, that if you take your hands off the handlebars they start to shake quiet a bit. Yes of coarse you shouldnt but-----. Even changing to different tyres didnt make much of a difference. A few weeks ago I was messing about with the...
  14. CRF 250 Rally going into production for 2017

    Africa Twin
    Finally a really modern rally rep for sale! Honda CRF250 Rally prototype | MCN What do you guys think? This is really interesting to me, I've always wondered why KTM never did it before after abandoning the KTM 640 and going to 950 that they didn't just stick a rally fairing on the 690 enduro...

The campsite is next to the New Inn which has it's own micro brewery. Should be an interesting couple of days :compress: I...
  17. RD07 Front rim offset. ????

    Africa Twin
    Guys, some help please. Is the front rim on an RD07 offset when fitted? I'm guessing no as it would make for some interesting steering and handling issues. I've just got around to fitting my replacement front wheel to the AT. I bought it second hand and it's been relaced with new spokes before...
  18. Manufacturers looking at "small" adventure bikes?

    Transalp
    I know this isn't Transalp related but I though it was interesting that manufacturers are waking up to the fact that 1200cc and 230kg isn't what everyone wants! V-Strom 250 and Versys 250 rumoured - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

    Girlfriend is entirely, comfortably, happy with pillioning about on the 650 Transalp … … that we’ve done a few laps of Sicily upon. But, Transalp 650, two-up with luggage, will take its own sweet time on the tedious motorways, autoroutes … … and autostradas between the interesting...
