    I was emailed a new password due to a 'security breach'. I logged in successfully with it. I changed it to something sensible. A few days later and now my password appears to have been reset to what it originally was (i.e. before the 'security breach'). Just for anyone else who's having problems.

    Its registered as a 1997 bike and has dual front brake discs - it was originally a white UK police bike and the frame number is ZDCP**** 0VF00****. I want to order brake pads and a Goodridge hose kit as far as I can figure the bike is either a VT or VV model. Anyone? Thanks, 'cptr
  9. Travel
    SWMBO has kindly consented to give me a pass-out in early to mid September, so I am looking... again, at a trip to the Pyrenees and/or the Alps. The dates are a bit vague at present, as I cannot go until I have finished Harvest, but I hope that this will be around the 7-10th of the month. Just...

    I have a 650TA front wheel that's surplus to requirements. From a 2002 model (plain alloy rim), been stored for several years so not done many miles. I bought it originally with the intention of getting the hub re-laced to a 19" rim but never got around to it, and the spokes and rim are so good...

    I think I may have a slightly bent gear lever on my 1993 600 TA since tried the bike with my new MX boots on and found I couldn’t get to the gear leaver with the crash bars on and leaver seems too close to engine? It could just be me not used to MX boots but the previous owner had dropped the...

    About a year and a half ago I got one of those cheap battery chargers from lidl when they had their bike stuff on sale, and I've been using it to keep the battery on my 125 and the @T topped up while I haven't been using them. When I let my little 125 battery run right down once, I noticed it...
  14. Product Reviews
    I originally bought my Airhawk for the Africa Twin, but just as I ordered it I decided to change to a BMW GS so my Airhawk has been installed on my BMW 1150GS for the last few years. So what's it like..... well it's outstanding. In my opinion of course. I'm well aware that no everyone get's on...
