    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1447260308/programmable-motorcycle-cdi-and-bluetooth-ios-andr Essentially it's a direct swap for the OEM unit and you control your ignition timing curve via Bluetooth and iPhone/Android apps. It's useful if your engine is modified or for running the E10 fuel...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    seems a bit OTT for a dominator but i suppose it would be cool to play around with the mapping. (until it blows up) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1447260308/programmable-motorcycle-cdi-and-bluetooth-ios-andr

  4. Africa Twin
    So I've got a few circuits near me (well, within 100km) where I can do some free-riding on dirt. The thing is I'm a newb to dirt, never having ridden on it. I'm also a newb to the AT. I'll go on a dry day - don't need to make my learning curve any steeper :p but I was wondering if there are any...

    Just wanted to mention some software that I've been using recently. I've just come back from a bike trip around Portugal, and I used Trello to organise my bike packing before going. I'm a bit of list nut, I love writing down what I need to do, what I need to pack, etc. and then derive perverse...
  8. Transalp
    Have just returned (to the UK) from a 4 week, 4500 mile round trip to Romania on my XL700 - brilliant! :blob7: Having previously thought it was a lovely little bike I now know that it's a bl**dy fantastic bike! All riding was fully loaded and the XL had everything thrown at it from motorway...

  10. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    I've just bought a lovely XL 200r italian import, but to be honest I think it's just too small for a fat git like me. I've got a Vara 1000 and fancied a smaller bike to try laning on. She's had over a grand spent on her in the last 2 years including new rings, camchain, a professional kickstart...
  11. Chatter
    Been debating with Thames Water on Twitter today and they have suddenly gone silent - I think I have found a way round the ban. There is an Exemption for businesses that clean your car (or motorcycle) for you So I suggested I pay my son to clean my bike, or even pay myself as a business...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...

    (First off: Lots more pictures at Ural Red Star 650 - forsale.rodentia.org.uk) 1999 Ural "Red Star" 650cc (Solo - so no sidecar and solo gearing.) Not run for a while. SORN'd, MOT has expired. Needs some work before it will pass (see below) so it will need to picked up with trailer or van. I...

    Just a heads up about paypal security updates doing the rounds. I haven't received one of these in ages, and I can only guess it is somehow linked to the recent traffic we're getting to the paypal on the TLD website. The scam email I got looked the most convincing of any received so far. This...

    Straight from the Honda press release (sorry bit of a rush) (pics at the end) The Crossrunner represents the best aspects of two separate biking genres: the flexibility and exciting attitude of a Naked performance machine with the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure...
  17. Transalp
    Well, I've had my TA for a week now and done my commute to London from the Island. These are my first impressions - if I'm wrong in any of this, no doubt I'll be corrected! I came from a V-Strom 650 which I had got when I downsized from a series of BM GSs. I'm very fond of V-Stroms and reckon...
  18. 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...
