  3. Dear Pepe. I wish you were here.

    Dominator / FMX
    The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...

    Can anyone recommend hand guards for the above bike. Snapped my hand brake lever ( but managed to manufacture a mock-up for now) Looking at the twist grip there doesn't seem to be provisions for fixing a two point gaurd, which I would prefer (more solid) It seems to be a closed off tube...

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Has anyone fitted the latest version of the Tourance NEXT and if so how do they rate them? I need to replace my old normal Tourance rear on the TA600 and since the bike never goes off road thought I would opt for a road tyre and it seems to come out better than the Anakee 3 in tests and...

    Hi everyone!! I'm an spanish guy, the proud owner of an Africa Twin XRV 750 R RD07 since one month ago. For me, this bike is a myth because of its storie and success. I love it, and when one week before a friend of me told me about making a video with this bike as the main character, I said...

    Transalp
    So I've spent all day riding on/off road at the Touratech event today and if I don't keep to speeds above 30/40 the radiator fan was on/off with the temp hitting 100c regularly. Is this normal for the Transalp 700 or should I look at changing the coolant. No idea when it will have been changed...

  20. Road biased tyres for the CRF250L

    CRF - New Forum!
    Hi, new to the Forum. I have always ridden large touring bikes but have recently added a CRF250L for small backroads riding. I don't want to ride off road, just the small tarmac tracks that wind over moors and Dales. The CRF has the stock knobbly tyres and I don't feel secure cornering on tarmac...
