    Had an interesting chat with a technical guy from ELECTREXWORLD regarding the Regulator/Rectifier and although in his words there Reg/Rec is so much better than Honda's ,half the problem is trying to keep the unit cool.Most manufactureres tend to mount this unit out in the open allowing a good...

    Saw a RWB @'er faced with the ultimate AT dilemma yesterday. That discerning moment when you have to take the choice and live with the consequences of your actions.....Whether you should accept defeat and pull over to the side of the road to change to 'reserve' or continue riding along like a...

    The plan: IanS and son Matthew, Whealie and daughter Molly spend the day at the outdoor show and then head for a campsite near Chipping Norton for a convivial evening chatting round a camp fire and eating off a barbecue. Me, I've just bought a tent, so I went along just to try it out. I set...

    Just back from DVD '07 where I see that someone is trying to market the Rokon Scout on this side of the Atlantic. You're looking at 6bhp, 175cc and 40mph madness. But it's party piece is full time two-wheel drive. They'll do three colours, but I guess the guys in green would only be interested...
  12. Transalp
    Hey all; I have a rather strange question about my brakes if you would oblige? I currently have a '05 model that's done just over 5k mil. I was having problems with a 'spongy' front brake with no bite but a recent annual service has sorted that. So much so that they are now rock hard. The...

    About a year and another africa twin later here i am again complaning about engine noises. When i bought my second AT, rd04 this time it had a ticking noise that seem to get faster with reving the engine so i asumed it was the valves. Got a friend to set them in the midlle(0.15 and 0.20 i...

I arrived in Vaasa, Finland at 2 o'clock in the morning and headed south along the Baltic coast. The plan for this trip was to ride around the Baltic Sea, alternating between exploring the...
