  1. Rear shock - A bit too soft?

    Hi. I have had my 99' TA 600 for a while now, and I want to make my bike a little less soft, and also try to lift the rear a bit. Is this possible just by modifying the original parts? Has anyone done this before? In the front I added a few mm. of fork-oil, and changed the viscosity. That...
  2. Engine Bars wanted.

    I'm after a set of engine bars for my 2007 Transalp 650, preferably used, condition is not an issue.

  7. Stromeferry (No ferry)

    Looks like Stromeferry (No ferry) is about to get it's ferry back - and an end to the obvious joke, which the BBC have clearly failed to pick up on. So, the A890 will be closed for some time if the authorities are talking about modifying the railway to allow road traffic access and the...
