    I found this while mooching around reading the english daily gossip mags and was wondering if they are known from here and is their trip on record here? It looks like they are riding Afric Twins. From Turkey to Tajikistan, Armenia to Afghanistan: Couple capture breathtaking images as they...
  3. CRF - New Forum!
    Firstly hi all as I'm new here and for the record I'm now the very happy owner of a crf 250 l. My question is does anyone know what other exhaust end can or complete system fits the crf 250 l obviously I do not mean will a kx 250 fit but as there's a few models ie the x the r and the older ones...

    I want a camera setup, preferably front and rear and mounted out of sight on the bike somewhere that come on and record as soon as you turn the key. I would like something I can integrate with a microphone in helmet and a helmet cam if possible in the future. I know I'm going to be told a...

    Has anyone measured the length of an RD07 rear brake hose (e.g. to get someone to make up a braided one for them)? It's tricky to get a good measurement on the bike, and I don't want to take it off as I can't bleed the rear brake right now. Sure I can manage, but it just occurred to me that...

    Seriously when will this weather depart from our shores and leave us with just a little sunshine? I'm starting to lose the will to live... 2012 didn't exactly have a decent summer then one of the wettest winters on record, is just a couple of sunny days to work on the bike or at least get a...

    Right then, now that I've got your attention - what would you do with the aforesaid "untold millions". Me, I'd build (or rather fund the building of) a main line steam engine to take the world speed record, which currently stands at 125.88 MPH and is held by 4468 Mallard. When I say "currently"...

    I know some of you keep detailed records of your bike spending. What do you record and how do you record it?
  11. Transalp
    I'm still restoring my tired old '89 Transalp, which is swallowing money like there is no tomorrow ! I notice from the V5, that is was imported into the uk in 1997, but there is no record of where it came from. Does anyone know how I can find this bit of info out ? Regards Charlie

    Last night I got stuck into checking / adjusting valveclearances and balancing the carbs on the @. 2.5hrs from starting the strip down / check over to finishing with everything back on the bike (valve clearances were OK, so no adjustments made - carbs were a different matter :rolleyes:) Is...

    43mpg :cool: Fully loaded with a mate and luggage (2x panniers and topbox) on a dash up to Oulton Park. Not sure how to get into the 30's without an autobahn :confused::D Anyone can be economical on an AT, this is hardcore!
  14. Transalp
    Hi Guys, What are the record mileages for the Transalp without any major engine overhauls on this forum? Ones that you've done or know for sure and not urban legends? I have a friend who claims he made 100,000 miles on his Transalp without even changing the clutch. Is that realistic? BTW: Hi...

    At the moment Chad is way out in front as top poster, however Mabel is going to have s*d all to do from Monday except feel sorry for herself and make J's life hell :D. So all she's going to be able to do is haunt this place and boost her post count. Don't say I didn't warn you :D:D:D:D

    I've now owned my TA for exactly 1 year. I know it doesn't sound a lot but apart from on old family heirloom 1972 Honda 250 that sits in the garage it is the longest I've ever owned a bike for! Says something about the TA, especially as it's a bit slow, a bit dull, a bit of a handful on the...

    I've just managed to squeeze 7,000 miles out of my rear TKC80. Is this a record? (OK, I probably should have changed it about 2K ago but this is Yorkshire after all).
