    Just bought an AT :) after many years spent in the wilderness riding all (road only) sorts of two wheeled machines - 400 fours, ducati 748, cbr600s, R1s etc. Last decent steed was a TDM850 which served me well up to 43k miles. Current stable is z1000 (needs TLC) z650 (being used) ZX7r...

    Chatter
    OK, just got back from the N.E.C Bike Show today, and here are a few thoughts. I will definitely NOT go again. Too many people, too expensive, too bloody far, too much run-of-the-mill stuff I thought the new Transalp, in the flesh, was even uglier than in it's pics posted here a while...

  15. My flirt with the darkside.

    Other Bikes
    Okay I admit it. Mr motocross had to go and look at a KTM 640 adventure. Mr. Sensible knew better. But Mr. motocross was really drawn to it as Its much closer to his old ride (Crf450R). Every time he sees an AT he wants to stick a set of excels on it, jack it up with a shiver USD, replace the...
