  4. Everybody starts somewhere

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    As my Son has just passed out in the Army he has been dying to get out on his XR125 and wanted to do a “mission”. I was not looking forward too much to plodding about with a 125, but he has never ridden any distance so I thought, everybody has to start somewhere. We set off from home and went...

  9. The Clone

    High up in his penthouse suite the mad scientist worked feverishly to perfect his grand project; the human clone. Everything was going well but for one small detail: the clone cussed like a drunk sailor on shore leave. Nothing the scientist could do would stop the clone's abusive ranting...
  10. Brake problem solved ...

    Mechanical Advice
    Hello fellow @-ers, Ever since I bought my bike I had some strange braking problems. Whenever I would brake my lever would seize (I thinks that's the word, meaning it would not go any further) a little, and therefore brake only a little. When I would squeeze harder it would eventually shoot...

    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    Pentagon GPS, useless and rude IMO. The sorry tale. Odered a Zumo las Friday, paid through Protx and had their confirmation that afternoon. As the Zumo hadn't arrived by Wednesday I emailed them - the 'phones aren't answered. Got a reply to say it had been sorted out but by Friday still no...

  16. End of the road for the Transalp?

    When you count your pennies to buy a new bike, wouldnt you rather have a Kawa Versys than a TA? It isnt pretty but it's cheaper, with ABS, more power, better mpg etc etc. And what does Mabel mean in her signature - saying that you dont know how many people you affect till you're dead? I...
  17. Kenny << Not a SouthPark joke!!!

    A farmer has about 500 hens, but no rooster, and he wants chicks. So, he goes down the road to the next farmer and asks if he has a rooster that he would sell.
