    ...can one make on a Sunday afternoon? Quite a few it would appear. I have been, to say the least, neglectful of my bikes this year. Today saw what was, effectively, my first ride out, for the sake of it, in 2011. A friend recently got a licence, so when the sun came out, I had a choice -...
  6. Bike Comms & Audio
    Whats the simplest coms set for rider pillion. dont want music, sat nav, or nassa control just to be able to hear her in doors instead of having to stop every ten mins to here her dribble, if im going to hear it I may as well progress whilst doing so.

    Has anyone heard the new round of adverts doing the rounds on the radio the basic premise being that they descrbe the rider as a particular model then describe a few of their humanly traits followed by a polite request not to run them over. am i alone in thinking this but who is going to...

    Transalp 600 Softer Seat. The TA 600 seat is reasonably soft, possibly too soft as heavier riders compress the foam completely onto the seat base, so the soft seat is now hard, leading to the 'numb bum' effect on longer rides. Having a seat with a rip in the cover that I wanted to repair I...
  10. Africa Twin
    Just wondering if any body know if its possible to get a back rest for the Africa Twin. I got a top box but want to go on a longish trip and would rather remove it and fit a more comfy back rest for the pillion.

    Not sure where to put this thread so mods, feel free to move. Otherwise, I guess it will have to stay firmly on the dark side... Those who have followed my earlier thread, will already know that I have been smitten with the F650GS that folk here have long been recommending (and I thought this...

    Afternoon all. Off for a long weekend camping with some friends next week. TA650 will be pretty loaded, with camping kit, clothes etc, but I'm riding without pillion. Any suggestions on tyre pressures? Running Bridgestones at moment. Do they need extra air or can i use standard setting (2 bar).
