    Just thought I would let you all know about this waistcoat with high collar. My first go with heated gear and even though it was 10 degrees in the Yorkshire Dales there was always a cold wind. I was wearing a decent Merino wool base layer and the waistcoat over that plus a well known 3 layer...

    This one belongs to my friend. Max weight is 22lbs on that rack (so says the sticker). He had 17lbs of "survial tools and equipement". He went for medium off-roading. Nothing hard. Did a small jump over a ridge and... crack !!! Would you bring less for a day of off-roading ?

    The manual says I need "High quality ethylene glycol antifreeze containingsilicate-free corrosion inhibitors" for my XL700. Can anyone recommend one that fits the bill as I can't seem to tell whether or not they contain silicates. Also, I'm buggered if I can see the max/min marks on the...

    Lo ! I have got 1999 FX650 with stock rear shock. It was set on medium preload, and I hit thru it quite often while riding with passenger and now and then when riding alone. Now I have set the preload to max, I almost never hit it thru when riding alone and rarely do when I ride with passenger...

    The manual states max 27kg load weight but only 10kg on the rear rack, understand the recommendation but I'm sure riders exceeded this limit =) The reason I wonder is that I'm interested in the 58l Trekker Outback, the manufacturer blinds the specifications like their football team dives but...

    I have been reading on ADV that a lot of vstrom owners put sigma bike computers on their bikes as the speedo on a vstrom is crap. Anyway I need a trip meter replacement and been looking at the sigmas but the gap between the spoke magnet and the recurved is 1/2 an inch Max. Can any manner be used...
