  1. Wind buffeting

    Hi All, so I just fitted a Givi top deflector, all good so far. Went for a spin and certainly it works very well, but I found I was getting wind in the chin/neck area, particularly on right hand side mainly Out with throttle hand , and it seems to be coming in from the hand guard / brake fluid...
  2. Dominator or xtr 660

    Dominator / FMX
    Well lads that time again where I'm thinking of my next bike, I'm leaning towards another Dominator but they seem to be slim on the ground in this neck of woods (ROI), I am wondering if anyone here has had both and would you recommend one over the other? Thanks in advance:thumbright:
  3. Wanted: Used front RD03 brakeline

    For Sale / Wanted
    All I need from the brakeline is the top steel block. Could come from another bike if the upper block is the same. Would buy several if available. Also need ASAP the plastic inlet for the rear MC. Mine is broken at the neck. Part # 43503-MS8-006 and available on most Transalp...
  4. Airbag Vest

    Been watching the development of this kit over the years and formed a viw that they may be worth while. At the NEC show there were some on display so I was able to try one for size. Good un obtrusive fit when un inflated, lots of thoughtfull detail in the design. The one that stood out above the...
  5. Open face helmet anyone?

    I know most of the arguments against the open face helmets but am seriously considering getting one. I've had the Transalp for just over a week now and after covering a few hundred miles am loving it. The only real problem that I have encountered is a bit of a muzzy head after going over about...
  6. Guy Martin, yah bugga

    Guy Martin. On the surface, slightly insane! Speed with Guy Martin - Channel 4 But checking out his kitchen, I notice a rather rare and exotic Bimota V-Due sitting in the corner, and something perhaps even more special or secret, sitting under a tarpaulin?!! The bloke needs a "check up from...
  7. Exciting news from Burma

    Spitfires... are they there or not? This fella has poured an awful lot of his own money into this project, so you'd like to think that they are. IF, they are; I wonder how many, and how restorable they are? This is a country with monsoons and high humidity, so would they have rotted away...
  8. Well goodbye Patrick

    I used to like old Patrick for his wacky looks, thick accent , waistband up at his neck -and the monocle.:D He's been around so long he was like part of the furniture, spying through his garden telescope and generally being an eccentric which is good -we need more of them around. But. Then I...
  9. Goodbye

    That's the Varadero gone, after a car pulling out in front of me and sending me down the road on my head breaking my neck and damaging nerves in my back it time to hang up the leathers. The bike has been scrapped and the wife says enough is enough, even after 4 months I still can't drive the...

  13. A quick blast round my neck of the woods!

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Believe it or not, the sun shone on the lake district today! As this is a once monthly occurance, I thought I'd go for a quick spin. It's not good for bikes to stand still for too long you know... From Waterhead I went down the Langdale valley, which unfortunately has three sections of...
  14. Leatt Neck Brace

    Product Reviews
    My Adventure Leatt brace arrived today. My wife took some piccies tonight to give you an idea of the positioning. Apologies for the ugly model but that's the best I coudl do :D First let me say that the restriction you expect from this brace is not at all as such. There is NO and I repeat NO...

  16. Neck Braces

    Mechanical Advice
    I've seen the BMW and KTM full on neck braces, but I've also seen the cheaper presumably foam based neck braces available now. I think Mudwiz you had one didn't you? So what are they like, does it restrict movement? Keep you warm? Too warm? How well do they wash? I have a neck problem and I...
