    Blinkin' flip. The guy did well to stay upright. But, at least, in future, when Vader claims the tree jumped out at him, we'll have to believe him.;) Tree falls onto Motorcyclist!!! - YouTube

    Hi, The other day I went from Salisbury to Gatwick, a 2 hour ride. On arrival I parked up, switched off the engine and then a couple of minutes later tried to start it, but the battery was virtually dead; I had an electrical circuit but no enough volts to turn the engine over. I have a 12DC...
  8. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Pre warning, i dont know how to rotate pictures :) So me and my old man thought we'd have a trip to wales, instead on the easy route down the A40 to south wales we decided to go to north wales without using motorways. So threw the panniers on the bikes and headed up on the A44 to Rhayader...

    Just venting my anger... Rang Bennetts to get insurance on my AT they quoted £77 tpft which is fine. I then told them I wanted to insure it on the chassis number as it is an import and not registered as a UK bike yet, which would allow me to legally ride it to and from the MOT station. The quote...

    Cleaning up a few bits whilst i'm waiting for a replacement rear shock, i thought i'd clean up and re grease my AQ linkage and this is what i found :o : I'm waiting to hear back from African Queens to see what they say. They only give a 2 year warranty on their stuff, but i think...

    I´ve had a bit of a hankering lately for a Yamaha TDM850 to replace my trusty @. Now I´m not so sure. This is a posting I´ve just put on the TDM forum: "Not a good day............................. it didn´t go well. Been down the pub for a couple of beers to settle my nerves, so please excuse...
