  4. Today's Transalp

    Transalp
    I've had my 650 Transalp for about 7 years, and 40,000 odd miles. What would you suggest as a suitable, up-to-date, successor? A new Africa Twin would be exceedingly nice, but, being realistic, I should be looking for something lighter and less tall than the TA (and no more than £4-5000). Would...

  6. NC750X Adventure!

    Other Honda
    I didn't get a picture, but my local dealer had one of these today when I called in. Basically an NC750X with crash bars and an alloy sumpguard/bash plate (in black), and Knobblies. Looked quite nice, and the bash plate seemed to protect the exhaust and Cat quite well. But ever since the NC700's...
  7. RD04 headlamp bulb change update

    Africa Twin
    Well I managed to find time today to have a go at this. Ha bloody ha. I eventually got the old bulb out (right hnd side), screen off along with right hand panel and the black panel above the front mudguard. Getting the fairing off looks like a nightmare with inaccesable bolts. I can get the bulb...
  8. Chain of fools ...

    Transalp
    G'day Playmates, Has any Transalper here ever carried a heavy-bike-locking-security-chain in the TA's capacious storage compartment under the seat ... and if so, what were the results, if any, of surpassing the weight limited of 2'ish Kgs that Mr.Honda's sticker states is the maximum permitted ?
  9. The new AT, emperors new clothes

    Africa Twin
    The reason we all love the AT is because if the bike that it is and the experiences that the bike has given us, but every one wetting themselves over a bike that isn't an AT, that they have not seen, nor ridden and don't even know the specs of, but because Mr Honda has given it the same name...

    Bodgers Corner

  11. RD 07 New Wheel Rims

    Africa Twin
    I've had the misfortune to replace my front wheel rim due to corrosion from the inside, a common fault for a bike that's 23 years old. Trying to get a replacement via David Silver but the said rim or rims are no longer available, tried Mr EBAY but what was available was very expensive for some...

    Chatter
    Well, here we are, almost at the end of another year, and almost at the start of another instalment of "I'm a Celebrity, Get me out of here" This year, the motorcycling community has been considered, and an old ego has been resurrected for some fairing bashing hopefully? Carl Fogarty |...

  15. Radiator hose questions

    Africa Twin
    I'm going through the process of replacing all my coolant hoses on my RD03. Since it's damn near impossible to find the majority of the OEM shaped hoses, I've decided to go with some wire-reinforced silicone hoses from ASH: Wire Reinforced Silicone Hoses - AutoSiliconeHoses.com - Silicone Hose...

  18. Today's Bealach Pic

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Taking the scenic Gairloch - Edinburgh route, really enjoyed the dry singletrack roads after 'biblical' Friday and 'gradually improving' Saturday. Well worth the hour or so's diversion (particularly with new-found confidence in the twisties courtesy Mr Ric Or & his Intiminators!) :)
  19. Vara fork internal weirdness?? Help!

    Varadero
    I have mentioned elsewhere a slight issue I am having with dropping the oil in my Vara forks, but this needs more clarification... for me! I have dropped the forks out in readiness to give them 530ml each of Mr Silkolene's finest... But! On unscrewing the caps off the tops of the forks, the...
