    Hello, fellow two-wheelers! I consider mounting a (double) dash cam on my bike, and I can´t navigate in the jungle - I would rather get tips from experienced people in here. INNOVV seems to be a good choice, but one place it was mentioned that it stops recording for a short period of time now...

    Hi My bike has been standing unused for about a year. I have just dusted it off and was checking it over prior to the MOT and there is a quite loud knocking coming from the front disc/brakes. I am sure its the brakes as if I remove the caliper and spin the wheel it goes completely. Also if I...

    If you purchase a property that has been empty for some time, you get no longer get any free council tax period, even on a property undergoing renovation/not habitable. If said newly acquired property has been empty for 2 years or more (eg, reposession) you may have to pay 150% council tax rate...
  6. Travel
    I have never travelled on the tunnel and am looking at possibly using it for the Dambusters ride at the end of May. It will be a fairly late booking, and I wondered what sort of period Eurotunnel have before the prices ramp up for the later/last minute bookings? It seemed about 24hrs from a...

    earlier this week in the Var (southern france) a motorcyclist died when his scarf caught in his wheel. despite the rapid help from a bystander who saw the accident & ran to cut the scarf. the winter period is dangerous enough as it is on a bike, lets try & not add to the risk by just not...

    Well after a period of unknown patience from me (no really it was weeks!) I've picked up something that should see me till at least the summer (and hopefully longer) Comfort and economy with enough umph for a smile but keep me points free! All I need now is a longer break in the weather to go...

    Still think that the money grabbing, self serving, hypocritical bastards that call themselves the conserative party have your best interests at heart? Well, think again - Redundancy talks period to be cut from 90 days to 45 days. I wonder how many of these tory idiots have had to go through the...
  10. Insurance
    ...i'm off to ride morocco at end of October, but on checking with my insurance they only insure me through Europe. i told the guy from my insurance that i needed cover for morocco, but i think he must have slept through his geography classes at school, because he told me i was ok because i was...

    Is there anyone around in the Slough area next weekend who could spare a bit of time to help please? I tried to start my bikes up yesterday after a long period of storage - without joy :-(. I have ordered an optimate so I can put the big bike on charge as I know there is not enough power to do...

    Planning a trip to the Dolomites next year and one of my co-travellers mentioned that you need to have held your M/C licence for a minimum period of a year to be able to enter certain countries. Of course he couldn't remember which countries! Anyone heard of this requirement and has anyone got...
  15. Africa Twin
    I just want to learn what is the engine oil replace period in your country and which oil you use for your Africa Twin. In Turkey Africa owners do it every 5000 km ( 3250 mile) but according to my bike's owner's manual I have to do it evey 12000 km(8000 mile). I confused about it:confused:
