  1. Rider modes

    Hi, I took the TA to work yesterday. It was frosty so I selected the correct rider mode, adjusted the screen for the speed I would be travelling, adjusted the suspension, de selected, the traction control, selected launch control, adjusted the lean control abs etc:toothy10: Nah not really I...

    For Sale / Wanted
    cree u5 | eBay i've had these on for a couple of months, used mega daily, installed pretty well, switched, heat shrunk, fused-relay etc. There now appear to be dealers all over the net, prices have dropped considerably, but same product maybe. Anyway, for those of you who can't/won't stretch...
  5. Original Trip computer

    Africa Twin
    Hi Guys, Maybe I'm impaired regarding technology, but I cannot seem to work the trip computer on my RD07 - even with the little original XRV750 owner manual. It explains how to switch between all sorts of modes but the penny just doesn't drop for me. I know many guys reckon its a piece of crap...
  6. Spent some time and a little cash to sort my Transalp

    Transalp
    Hello, For anyone with buffeting or wind noise issues I though I would post a couple of pics of my recently purchased Tranny which I have been spending a bit of cash on to sort out the screen issues and to lower to accommodate my 29" inside leg getting both feet on floor. Firstly the screen, I...

  8. Met God on a ferry a few weeks ago.

    Chatter
    Who? No he does not ride a Harley Davidson. On the boat back from Santander there were dozens of bikers as usual. Late in the evening I was sat in a corner of the bar and got chatting to this distinguished looking guy, quality facial hair, lovely flowing white locks. We got round to bikes...
  9. A few -ahem - modifications, and Morag's good to go

    Chatter
    Not sure whether this should be in riding, or another forum, but I thought it might be of general interest. Those who have followed my (very) faltering progress since passing my test on a 125 Vanvan, and acquiring my first big bike, Morag the BMW f650GS (which was restricted according to...
  10. Brian and Morag get out on the road again!

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Don't really think this counts as a "ride report" (more like a progress report) so mods feel free to move if I've got it wrong. As some will know, despite passing my bike test last autumn I've gone through something of a confidence crisis after parking my first big bike Morag horizontally on a...

    Product Reviews
    Having researched quite a bit into introductory/basic gear just to get started I stumbled along this offer, I was rather apprehensive but at this time of year being the Festive period were all fully aware budgets are tight. I was fully intending to take advantage of the current Hein Gerricke...

Want opinions on what is of use to add. Before I paint it What do you think. Some ideas ? If you look at the pictures, I...
  13. Last spot of Sun?

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    I am trying to manouvre a break at the tail end of September, two possible options I am thinking about at present... 1. Weather getting cool, so catch the Motorail to N. Italy, and then spend 5-6 days coming back at a leisurely pace, taking in a healthy chunk of Alps or Dolomites/Black Forest...
  14. Lulu gets back on the road for another grand day out #1

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well, I’ve not been able to post much or check in to the forum as often as I’d have liked so it’s time to update on my posts about my (faltering) journey towards full bikerdom. A combination of appalling weather this “summer” and work and family commitments have meant that I’ve had fewer...
  15. Leaky wheel

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    A mate popped over last night.. He'd had a new tyre fitted to his Sprint ST a day or so back at his main dealer and it had deflated overnight. He blew it up but it was still loosing air somewhere but he couldn't find from where. Well he popped back to the dealer and they pulled the tryre off...
  16. Honda Integra

    Other Honda
    Yeah, I know it's not an "Adventure" bike, but it is a Honda, and the engine feels a bit like a V-Twin!! I posted the piece below on another forum, and I thought someone may find it of use or interesting... Integra impressions. Well, I finally managed to get a test ride on an Integra today...
  17. Qatari etiquette - any advice?

    Chatter
    OK, so I know you are all a cosmopolitan and well travelled lot :thumbup:. I am off on a work trip to Qatar next week and have never travelled anywhere in the Middle East. I've checked the Foreign Office advice, and it tells me that I should avoid demonstrations, that road discipline is poor...
  18. Crosstourer has landed

    News
    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...

  20. Any financially minded people on here?

    Chatter
    I'm pretty simple financially. I have an ISA with modest savings, don't spend more than I earn and live by the motto 'Gotta earn it before you can spend it!' What I do know is that people with my attitude are getting hit left right and centre by crap interest rates, inflation, and 'helping'...
