  2. Touring Tips

    Transalp
    I’m a strong believer in less is more when it comes to touring speed, a rider can withstand more hours at 65mph for example than 75, especially if they stop every hour for 10 mins rest. I’m riding 250 miles on Friday but in no particular hurry, so thought it might be fun to try a programme of...

  8. Heat wrap headers

    Transalp
    The exhaust headers on the transalp, are a sight for sore eyes. Surface rust galore! I've been considering heat wrapping the headers, which I've done previously on car exhaust manifolds. If I was to heat wrap the bike exhaust, with it being open to the elements, if it gets soaked from rain...
  9. XL650-V Intermittent starting problem.

    Transalp
    Well not sure what this is. The bike starts up great nearly every time and runs well. But a twice now, it has started up, drove for about 2 miles, stopped to go in a shop for 5 mins. Come out and it just spins over without firing. I leave it for about 2 mins, and it starts straight away. Could...

He seemed fairly matter of fact about...

  13. England vs Sam Marino

    Chatter
    I am not a big football fan but I watched the last 30 mins of the England game tonight. England won 8-0, which is great but it was against a team of amateur part timers who are ranked equal bottom of the international teams. 8-0!! it should have been 80-0. Yet the pundits are all slapping...
