  14. Bike clock - in the dark.

    The 600TA doesn't have a clock, so I've been using an old analogue wristwatch lashed onto the handlebars. This is fine except at night. In winter when I ride to work I want to have something that is visible all the time in the dark, without me having to press an illumination button, etc. So...

    Today was one of those cold, crisp days with no wind and bright blue skies :sunny: .

I needed an oil filter and usually just call David Silver Spares...

    I took my AT in for its first MOT today and the garage lent me a 53 V-Strom 1000 as a loan bike for the day. So I thought it would be good to do a review and share my thoughts on the experience. On seeing the V-Strom next to a Varadero, and a Tiger, I actually preferred the Varadero in the...
