  3. Consider changing to something Orange??

    Not a KTM yet, my numbers haven't come up on the lottery:( However I took one of these out on Sunday, a Kawasaki KLV1000 (Suzuki V-Strom) - What a bike, I was really surprised, OK I would want to take it off road on anything more than a gravel track, and then pretty slowly, but as a road...

    Ride Reports and Pictures

  5. Front end wobble / Anti - AT Crime wave!!

    Africa Twin
    If i release grip on the bars slighltly whilst riding along the front end starts to move from side to side as I decelerate and depending on how quick I am going it gets quite violent. I noticed this happening on my first ride on the bike having just found it on its side as it had been knocked...
  6. Clutch question

    Africa Twin
    In this part of the world most of the bikes are now on their way to winter storage (or, as for me; rain-storage:( ). During this season (and last) I have noticed that the gearbox make some noticeable noice when shifting gear, especially when going down. The bike is no going into hibernation...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Weebro and i decided to do a bit of trail riding yesterday. From the what the weather people where saying it was meant to clear up. I headed down to his one the dommie in the driving rain and then we sat for a hour or two waiting. It eased a bit but still quite heavy but we decided just to go...
  9. Wonderful,Magnificent - Wireless.

    What a magnificent invention it is right enough. Here I am sitting in a boring meeting with a room full of noisy americans (who are demanding to be listened to) and moody europeans (who are taking the huff , big time). And I have just lifted the 'puter off the table on to my lap , where the...

  11. Ryka's December 06

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Tip of the day: Ignore the weather forecasts. I checked the BBC weather site Saturday night and it said Sunday would be 9 degrees and raining. So I didn't bother with the inner lining on the jacket or trousers. The temperature did not rise above zero until 9.30 at Ryka's (a BMW rider turned on...
  12. Laser Produro

    Africa Twin
    Just a quick couple of observations about this exhaust. When I bought the bike a couple of months ago, it had the standard can fitted, but came with a Produro can. Due to circumstances far too dull to go into here, I haven't had chance to fit the Laser until this weekend, and what a difference...

  14. nx650: Engine out - anything I should do?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi I've just become the proud owner of a '93 dommie. Its currently a non-runner which i picked up very cheaply with a bunch of spares, and i'm hoping to get it back on the road fairly swiftly. The main problem is that there are a number of sheared bolts - one exhaust stud and three cam cover...
  15. Stolen bikes

    I just read a heated post :lol: in the AT forum and it seems like a few bikes have been lifted recently. So, how about a "Stolen/MIA" section formally showing details and pics of stolen bikes and contact numbers, etc. Probably futile I know, but if even one bike gets 'recovered' because of it...
  16. Under Pressure?

    Africa Twin
    Ok, first answer wins another pack of virtual smarties, what air pressure should i have in my RD03's front forks, Haynes reckons 0-5 psi for an RD04, but of course they dont cover the RD03 :roll: Also i assume this is measured with the bike on the non-existant centre stand (or lifted in the air...
  17. Help!!!!!!!!!!!

    Africa Twin
    Okay, i thought i would change the rear tyre myself. not to save any money cos it was same price with or without fitting. I wanted to do it because i may need to do it one day at the side of the road in some far of distant foriegn land, and i wanted to practice. I have watched demo's of this...
