    Just bought an RD08, really nice to ride and goes well. 99% of it is in good order, however the exhausts (pipe to muffler) are shot. my first peak under the side panels last night revealed a very sorry state of affairs (much disappointment). Been looking around and I cannot decide on a course...

    On June, 4th, 2017, I had a big problem with the front tire in the middle of nowhere in Sardinia (Italy) on my AT RD 07a. Unfortunatly it was Sunday and I had no spare tube on board. So it was great luck, when 4 (or 5?) Englishmen on their AT's came along and stopped to help us. One of them even...

    So I picked up my new to me RD07 a week ago in Ireland. I'm in Italy now, after about 1,000 miles, and the speedometer has stopped working. It was a bit "bouncy" before, but then about 1 hour after I spray washed the bike, the speedo stopped all together. I checked the cable on both ends and it...

  16. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all, I seem to have an itch to scratch - For some strange reason I think I really fancy a Dominator :D But a tad confused over models, and CC. Does anyone know..... Were the 500 and the 650 made side by side until about 2000 - if so, why? I thought the 650 'took over' from the 500. Seems to...

    If all goes to plan I should be doing a round trip of around 3000 miles starting from the UK in August. I would like to ride across the Col de la Bonnette in the alps because the gps co ordinates are part of the Transalps paintwork. I've not been to Slovenia before so any tips will be well...

    If my information is correct the Col de la Bonnette is the highest asphalt Pass in the Alps,between the South of France and Italy? It's also, I believe, the GPS co-ordinates on the tank panels of the Transalp 700? Now I'm fairly new to this forum and was wondering if any of you more experianced...
