  1. I've just noticed

    Mechanical Advice
    This may seem a bit limp, but I've just noticed that the new XL700V Transalp has no fork gaiters. So, Honda are not actually expecting anyone to take this thing off-road after all. Either that or they're trying to shift a warehouse full of fork leg seals???...... :confused: Yes, yes, I'll go...
  2. Aiming headlights

    Africa Twin
    Apologies in advance if this is the mother of all dumb questions. I did a search and found some pointers about aiming headlights but after trying to do it last night I'm still a bit lost.

  5. Replacement rear wheel unexpectedly needed

    Dominator / FMX
    On my way to Lichfield (from Norwich) earlier this week, the rear wheel bearing rapidly collapsed while I was tanking down the M69, throwing the ball bearings into the centre of the hub, knackering the centre spacer and partially melting the inner wall of the hub. Not pretty. It was, of course...
  6. bent front end

    Transalp
    Had a nasty experience last Thursday on my favourite high mountain road in Mid Wales when a powerful cross-wind gust threw the bike into a fence on the side of the road and left me sprawled next to it. The bike came down on its right side and the crash bars stopped too much damage but when I...
