    (It's Long so you don't have to read it. I'm just writing it for me.LOL) I know for some it would not have been a big trip but for me it was. Having done my Das and only done about 100m localy on the way back from the shop. So. I've been away for 3 weeks. I get home and the wifes gone away...

  3. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Right then, the last gathering before the end of the year. To make it accessible to those in the East and South, lets think about somewhere in/around London, then we've all got the same distance to travel. Sohoeasy had a few ideas but he's not around right now, so maybe we could do the Ace...

    This thread has nothing to do with the title - but that title guarantees readers! i was astounded to read this morning that scientists are amazed that chimps have better memories than students! We could have told them that!!!! did they seriously think that students would be able to...

    Lets face we bought adventure bikes and to have adventures you have to get off the beaten track and expect the unexpected. If you have not dropped your adventure bike yet your doing one of 2 things either not getting off the tarmac (in which case you may want to question your choice of bike) or...

    So who'd be in charge of what? From my limited experience and knowledge of people here both onboard and in real life my staffing would look a bit like: Catering Division - BTBloke Press Photographer - Marcin Navigational Command - Mudwiz Medical Corp - Sharribee On Road Repairs -...

  8. Transalp
    You have your TransAlp. What would you do to it if money (and technical ability in my case) were no object, and why? The only rules are the bike must be a TransAlp. If possible, lets also include how much "alp cash" it would cost. (Why not, I can't do any more work to mine tonight!)
  9. Africa Twin
    Right, I have a Touratech seat on the @ and am [email protected]@dy annoyed by it. First thing is that it lets water in like no-one's business then it drips it down my leg when I sit on it. It s gotten so bad that I now take the seat off at night and leave it in the house next to the radiator to dry...
  10. Other Bikes
    I thought I'd start a thread about the beastie, and I'd like to try and keep it direct and to the point rather than BMW bashing. I've spoken with a number of people here who are/will consider buying one at some point. I'm currently deciding my plan for the next 2 years, either leave the AT as...

  12. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Very brief intro - we found MUD! More when work lets me!
  13. Africa Twin
    OK We all know the AT could really do with an extra cog, and this is what prompts my question. Years ago, when I were a lad, but thought I was Kenny Roberts, I was whizzing around on my Yamaha FS1E. The girls loved me, and I loved me (I looked good in all the shop windows) but I remember...
  14. Chatter
    I just watched John Bolton who was the former American United Nations Ambassador talking about the recent raid by Israel into Syria. To be completely honest i simply could not believe what i was hearing Gavin Esler asked him was it not totally unaceptable that Israel could do this carte blance...
  15. Chatter
    I heard something on the Radio that got me thinking... Right so we all know about Global Warming right, (CO2 build up in the Atmosphere blah blah blah)... But have you ever considered why there’s so much C02 up there... Cars? Manufacturing? Energy Production? All contributing factors I agree...

  20. Chatter
    :D Ok, here it is .. the little book shop tucked away down a little alleyway, far from the busseling crowded streets that make up the dynamic metropolis that is XRV.org. It has a little doorway, small and narrow, such that you have to stoop down when entering ( well, nearly everyone does ;) )...
