  3. Ideal bike for new pillion ??

    Africa Twin
    Ok folks, after a bit of advice... My girlfriend hasn't been on a bike before and wants to try it. I've currently got a 1998 CBR600 FV but since she is some 6' tall with 35" leg (yes they go all the way to her armpits!) I'm somewhat concerned that the CBR is too cramped for her Since I want...
  4. Honda 1989 AX1

    Dominator / FMX
    Posting some pictures of a Honda 1989 AX1 that I used to own as there appears to be little information on the site about these bikes. They were a Japan only bike, I think although some were imported into the UK when masses of greys were brought in, I have seen them elsewhere including Malta...
  5. The Longest Day 2011 and beyond.

    Charity Events
    The Xrv TLD event for next year will be in support of Make A Wish Foundation. How does the board feel about supporting MAWF ( or whatever our chosen charity is) for a fixed period of time, say for arguements sake, 3 years? Or does the board masses feel we should change the charity every...
  6. Proud dad!!

    Took my 9 years old on his very first ride today! :D:D:thumbup: School run....he was scared to start with, forgot to open up his visor while were stuck in traffic and got all fogged up, squeezed my love handles...(i.e. read masses of fat down my sides) pretty hard for the first half mile but...
  7. AT Value, aka "what's mine worth?"

    Africa Twin
    Hello all, Haven't been around lately (been too busy, alas) so I thought I would pop in with one of those annoying open-ended questions with no real answer. Oh Joy! ( PS - I think this is the right place, as it isn't an actual "for sale" ad or anything, but if the admins think it should be...

  9. Silly one.........plastic screw caps for mirror mounts???

    Hi Guys Have removed the mirror (only had one for some reason when I bought it) from my little XR400 and am concerned that the vacant mounting threats will rust/furr up during our moist winters and get clogged with mud (should I ever actually use it for it's intended purpose of off-roading...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Oh, where to start? The day? The planning? The charity? I don’t know, so I guess I’ll do the “whole weekend” and stick any references to planning, charity, support etc in where they seem to fit. I’m also going to stick the lessons I’ve learned in with the text too, hindsight being such a...
  12. Cross Winds Yesterday

    Africa Twin
    Hi! I did about 230 miles yesterday from Banbury to home near Scotch Corner, mostly M1 and A1 and the winds were awful! There were masses of bikes on the road coming away from Donnington and the alll seemed to ride more confidently and faster than me as my old AT (1993) was getting tugged about...
  13. Fuel tank query

    Africa Twin
    More advice needed from the knowledgeable masses. When putting my immaculate AT to bed for winter I noticed the fuel flow to the pump was at a bit of a dribble, so investigated by going upwards, the pipes,filters and tap seemed fine and I put it down to being transition to reserve.But Having...

    JUst came back from MotoGP practise and qualifying at Donnington. 300 miles on the Varadero today. Bloody fantastic, those Moto GP bikes sound totally awesome, ear splittingly loud, and boy are those guys riding gods, off the scale respect. Nearly every kid in the crowd was wearing yellow...

  18. Powder Coated Frame - still naked

    Africa Twin
    Just picked this little lot up from the lovely people at Griffs Reality Motorworks - top job on all my frame/fairing brackets. Colour match is so close to the original it is hard to spot the difference. Today I have mostly been unwrapping stuff and clearing rockwool plugs from the masses of...
  19. Do you know what a wiki is?

    If this is a strange question then you probably don't.. If you do that's great.. For those that don't, here's a short explanation.. So what does this mean to you? Well, it means you could write a page for the site on.... anything at all.. from within the site.. no need to learn HTML :shock...
  20. Scrubbing in new tyres?

    Africa Twin
    Another newbie question I am afraid :oops: My second hand @ has still got the original T tyres on it having done 6k miles. The back end slides under braking or a too quick step down through the gear box when its wet. Obviously I need to change the tyres, and following the endless tyre...
