I bought it and took it to college with me thinking it'd be a great project bike to work on inmy down time. Welp, turns out university requires time and effort (Mechanical Engineering) and the...

    Austin's Adventures
    The ride will start from the campsite at about 9.30am or earlier if we are all ready. But please aim to be ready to ride at around 9.20am for a pre-ride briefing. The route is around 140miles tent door to tent door with the first and only fuel around 100miles in. I suspect we won't be back at...

    After over 5 years of ownership, thousands of miles trail riding and a few punishing weekends competing in UK rallies, I decided it was time to give my 96' AT some overdue TLC.For a start the wheel rims were rotting away on the inside so they needed immediate attention. Also a slow speed off on...

    Transalp
    As well as my ‘96 @ I have an ‘87 TA which I bought for £500 about seven months ago. It was bought for a mate as a cheapo bike on which to do a little tour of Europe. It showed obvious signs of wear and tear and neglect; the seller was quite honest in saying it hadn’t been serviced at all while...
