    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    I've recently moved out of London for a bit of country life, and one of the things I'm going to miss the most from London is the awesome service I got from Dave Wilkins in Penge. My Africa Twin died last night on the M1, and I had it dragged home to Bovingdon. So now I'm looking for a service...

  15. Hello old friend

    Dominator / FMX
    Ran into an old friend this morning: It's the head of my domi which went to the wreckers in 2011. He still had it lounging around in a basket somewhere in a corner of the (rather messy) shop. Given the typical RFVC crack between the plug and the valves, and the rather "salted" outside, it...
  16. Dominator exhaust headers

    Dominator / FMX
    I took my exhaust headers into work and polished them down to the metal and they turned out to be stainless steel. After starting my bike up this evening to warm her up before she was tucked in for the night, I noticed my headers were glowing red hot. Do they all do that coz it looked kinda cool...

  19. TA's held in high regard ?

    Transalp
    I've always considered the Transalps to be a bit dull but their dependabilty makes up for it. I was quite surprised at the weekend when 3 different bikers I randomly met were all very complementary about the Transalp. One commented how sought after they were ???? and how they hold their value...

    Transalp
