I was wandering does any of you good people have top box for xl700 VA8? for sale? I have a top box on at the moment but it is of 650 TA that I took of my previous bike and I cant have it on when I ride with the pillion.
Pillion foot peg rubbers on my Dommie are perishing and falling apart, currently held on with cable ties.
Despite the fact I NEVER take a pillion, this has been bugging me so I bought new ones from David Silver.
Does anyone have experience/ top tips for replacing those? It looks like it...
As per the title :toothy9:

Latest project moving at snails pace just wondered if anyone has lurking in the shed the twin parking light sub loom for Africa twin. Also looking for a set of pillion footrests for RD07a, dont need the aluminium hangers just pegs. Cheers Jon
My RD04 was pinched a while back. I got it back via the police which was a miracle.
The right pillion peg was snapped off, hopefull when the theives broke arms crashing.
I have just found myself a lovely pillion passenger, RD04 rear pegs are unavailable SH and I am ona tignh budget.
I decided that this year I should do once again some sort of rider's safety training to refresh knowledge and skills. Searching the net I came across a course aimed at people that often ride with pillion passenger.
Has anyone in this forum ever completed such a course and can comment on results...

Trying to replace these two parts after neighbour knocked over my AT while She was parked. The actual cylinder is fine its the mirror that's broken at the base and of course, it mounts onto the master cylinder. Had the foot peg pieces welded back together but its bent out of shape so is likely...
Would like some advice on a tent please something that I could nearly stand up in instead of rolling around on the floor trying to put my trousers on !(bearing in mind im 6 foot).I usually buy a 3 berth for myself it gives me extra room to store panniers etc. I usually strap the tent to the...
Is there any adjustments that can be made on the rear shock on my RD07a,i don't need to make any at the moment but may do when I carry a pillion.I can't see any adjuster on the reservoir cylinder only the lockrings on the main spring on the shock itself,am I missing something? :confused:
AS the title say "Happy Aniversary" 10 years to the day we've been together, the longest i have ever owned a motorcycle and i have no intention of getting rid of her
Guess now give it another 18mths - 2years it will be time to make raised pillion pegs and fit a rear lap strap to her :D:D
I am interested in any knowledge, advice or just general opinion on travel insurance when travelling abroad.

OEM used pillion handles, £10 posted UK
Can post a picture if you don't know what they look like, TBH not sure why they would have been taken off? but have been sat on a shelf in the mancave for cough cough, a little while.
I'm still pondering about buying an A/T and would like to know what they are like at long distance touring,i'm planning a trip to Spain next year and was wondering how one would cope with a pillion and loaded luggage etc as I've heard they can be a tad underpowered,neither myself and my o/h are...
It's a custom seat that came on my TA when I bought it. It was very comfy for me and the Mrs said it was brilliant for pillion. However being height challenged... The seat meant I could only tip toe the bike and made it a bit difficult for two up riding so I bought a low seat.
Not sure how much...
Anyone have any ideas on what grab rails would fit a 2001 Alp? I'm slowly turning it into my version of a TransRat.
I've taken off the rear rack and replaced the rear indicators, now I need a front fairing. I'm thinking of getting the Puig Alien one with the stacked headlights and either...
