  9. Wanted: RD04 'Tallish' Windscreen Wanted

    For Sale / Wanted
    Anybody got a touring screen for the RD04 laying around? My current screen is quite low, so there's lots of wind buffeting which is a pain. Not really looking for the very high type but something mid range would be great. Cheers Ysbyty

  11. Spain

    A lovely track from our campsite to the Spanish Coastal town of Peniscola, yes and it is pronounced peeniscola. 20 kilometres in the mid 20's. Perfect. Oh and that's the wife, not me. Yes I know it's a Honda but the bike you cannot see is an XT 350
  12. E Bike crashed-dead? -Whealie

    E Bike site has been down for a week now with only a phone number shown. Replies on ABR suggest the site has been hacked. My bikes still register as insured on the MID site( ) so I assume they still operating. A few bits of the E insurance empire appear to be more...
  13. What size Air Hawk for an XR or DRZ?

    Mechanical Advice
    This might be a daft question to some, but what size Air Hawk is correct for mid sized trail bikes? The reason that I ask is that most that I've seen are based on GS's or Cruisers as a benchmark. Thanks in advance.
  14. Africa twin 750 / HP question

    Africa Twin
    Hi everyone !! I have had a couple of XR605R's before..... now I would like to build a Africa twin Supermotard. I know that gas flowing the ports will increase a few horses, as well as replacing the carb with a webber or similar. Are there any worthwhile mods I can do for extra low to mid...
  15. Mid week ride onto Mid Wales

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Looks like I will be able to sneak off for a ride this Tues/Wed and I fancy a mixed road/trail ride, heading from Telford out towards Bala on and off road. I'd be delighted to have company, many lanes are new to me in the sense that it is donkeys years since I ride them so may be a quite a few...

  20. Why is it...

    Why is it that I run into ALL the student drivers and pensioners in the area on the one night when I'm nursing the bike home on a one-strand clutch cable that won't quite disengage the clutch anymore? Never ceases to amaze me how spooked some people seem to get from something as simple as a...
