  4. Whealie really is a super hero.......

    Africa Twin
    It was bound to happen. You just can’t commute 50 miles a day through stationary London traffic on a ¼ tonne motorcycle and expect everybody to respect the difficulties of piloting solo. When my bike got shunted from behind by an abusive and aggressive mini cab driver in three lanes of solid...

  8. Triumph Tiger 800 possible problem

    Ok, I've done 7k miles with my XC now and as all who know me can vouch I'm pretty damned hard on the bike so may incur uncommon faults! The fault I'm highlighting here is a problem with the gear indicator/neutral light. At 1500 miles mine had an issue with the gear indicator which ended with...

    I own a 2003 xr400, being a mere 5' 7" and near 9 stone I want to lower the bike but not upset the handling characteristics by the use of lowering links. How much foam can be cut from the standard foam seat? I guess at 1", using carving knife and a sander, but only to the middle where the...
