    Hello there, first time posting etc... I'd like to say there is a pun intended but having spent the whole day trying to do it I'm not so sure! I've just bought a '95 Domie that "needs a little work" One area was the brakes - it came with Goodrich hoses that had been fitted but not bled. Rear...

Knowing the sort of person she was, we organised a New Orleans Jazz/ragtime band to lead the cortege - they were awesome, but what made me smile...

    First Bike on Scene is coordinated by the Northwest Ambulance Service, but they run courses all over the country. I've wanted to do this course for some time, and I've put the details at the bottom. So, I'm going to attempt to organise a course for us in the south of the country (someone up...

    Dear All, I bought my new TA from Dobles in April 2007 (http://www.doble.co.uk/). I have since been back for my 1st service and also to fit my Honda centre stand and top box. They have been professional, patient, polite and extremely helpful every single time. I have dealt with all their...

    The Haines Manual doesn't seem to cover head races so I had to call the XRV Helpdesk a few times this weekend - otherwise known as Chad. First thing he said made no sense. It was something about nuts, yolks and forks. I thought, I know how to make an omelette, it's these flippin' head races I...

    Played tennis yesterday, reached for a shot down the line and...... ....twang, my back went :cry: Carried on (and managed to gain a 3-1 lead :D ) before the pain got too much. Had to walk home which took 40 minutes (usually 15-20) As the evening wore on I got progressively worse and lost the...

    Hi everyone, newbie checking in. I've long been an admirer of the AT though it's always been out of my (very tight) pockets... :D I'm a bit nonplussed by the lack of oomph compared with my last steed - a '79 GS thou - but apart from that am loving it as much as I expected to! In case you're...
