  4. Stop laughing at the back, how not to sell a bike.

    I put my Pan European up for sale had a couple of views but no sale yet. Yesterday I charged up the battery as it has been stood for some time. Blokey came to look at the bike. It started nicely ticked over well, he gave it a proper examination, then as he turned off the ignition the electrics...

  7. Have a laugh on me...

    Oh I’ve had a good laugh this morning… Let me set the scene… A few days ago a lass who works here (not too bright but bonny) posted on Facebook asking if the film Public Enemies was based on a true story. If you haven’t watched the film then it’s about the American gangster John Dillinger, I...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well the 750 twin was eventually given an MOT after I changed the lights from fancy blue bulbs to normal H4s, ( apparently the blue does not register on the wee machine..) Marathon Tank 42l on and full top-box with wash bag and clothes and a few tools.. no camping :toothy1: Friday Morning...

  10. dingleberry?

    or is it blackberry? I dunno, I'd prefer a "me" fone or whatever it's called. Not that I'm a technophobe or anything...:rolleyes: Anyway, madame MooN has decided she wants a blackberry (thingy) but can't decide between a 9380, a 9360 or an 8520 & I haven't a clue what she's on about. Having...
  11. Fording the Fords

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Inspired by a recent return to the Wetroads website about fords I decided to go out today and sample a few of my local ones. First was this byway which is just 4 miles from my house, I have been riding this lane for over 30 years and it's changed a fair bit in that time.... Next was...
  12. AfriZest: Learning all servicing from scratch - on this here Forum!

    Mechanical Advice
    Gentlemen, the long term plan is to ride my AT back to South Africa at some point. But, given that I still need to learn how to get it onto the centre stand, I'll be spending the next year or so learning :laughing9: Currently, I commute with my bike as a breakdown in Brugge (long story) forced...
  13. A little light off-roading with Vader

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    What with accounts and work keeping me from attending the XRV Xmas meet I put out a plea for a ride out this weekend and Vader answered the call. So we met up at Rykas at 8am this morning for a styrofoam cup of styrofoam-tasting hot liquid and then set off. It was raining. We'd both had a...
  14. Utah in the fall

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, I've been here nearly 3 months now (and excuse any misspelling as a) Loki the Shih-Tzu likes to try and interrupt my typing, and b) I'm picking up Americanizations :laughing9:), and time to reflect on the start (and basically end) of my 2011 riding season. It's been a hectic last year (we...
  15. help needed before I waste any more money!

    Dominator / FMX
    I have seen these lovely customised Dominators and SLR'S and I want to create one. Don't get me wrong, I think the Dominator as standard is one of the best bikes ever and I have had some good adventures on one. I am trying to get a kit of bits together to make my own cafe racer or flat tracker...
  16. In which Lulu and Nessie - and a rubber band - come to the rescue of a blade

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, some of you on here may know that I've been struggling a bit with the demands the DSA has been making on my riding skills :rolleyes:. And I mentioned recently also to some that I hardly qualify as an 'Adventure Bike' Rider - and yet most of my rides seem to turn out into an (unplanned)...
  17. Pairs sytem

    Has anyone tried to test the pairs sytem on an xl650v, can a person draw enough of a vacuum to make it operate, you certainly can on the petrol vacuum switch. In case you are wondering, I attached a clean piece of pipe to the vacuum line and told the wife to suck this, whilst I was blowing down...
  18. Arse Arse Arse!! What a plonker!

    Africa Twin
    I'm selling my RD07 @ to Aztec at the weekend but couldn't resist doing my usual thorough weekly clean of the bike so removed the fairing panels and tank a couple of nights back to clean the bike up - okay maybe I do have O.C.D., but it's no laughing matter :) Anyway, I obviously didn't have my...
