  2. Broken seat lock

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, thought I would go and remind myself what my AT looks like and to take the battery off for. charging. Put the key in, but would not turn, I guess the lock is broken. So my question is does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement seat lock. Thank you.
  3. Why Do You Ride?

    As I am bored of seeing the same Poll each day I log in, I have decided to ask the question, why do you ride? At this time of year with the weather as it is, we might need a little reminding!
  4. Subscribing

    I'm thinking about it and had a look at the subscription link and found out that it was £12, no problem with that However I was confused/unsure about the automatic recurring renewal, in 12 months So if I pay by PP, will another £12 be automatically taken in 12 month's time, without asking me...
  5. Tesco/helmet interface

    Stopped at tesco's for a bit of shopping on the way home as normal. Opened flip-up lid keeping it on, as normal. Except today a security guard felt the need to pull me out of the queue and tell me to remove my helmet. I was about 2 from the cashier so I told him I'd remove it when he went to...

  9. New Transalp Review (full article)

    This is an article printed in a mag.. Sshh.. The Transalp has long been a star in Honda's constellation, but will the eagerly awaited incarnation shine as bright? It's been 20 years since the Transalp first hit our shores, and to celebrate it passing that two-decade milestone, Honda has...

    Reading through some other threads this evening I was reminded of a red mist incident in Calais while proceeding through the Chunnel terminal.

  13. Bigger, Stronger, Faster

    Africa Twin
    Than a Suzuki GS125 :D Seeing Chad's feeble efforts reminded me I hadn't put any pics of the road-rage RD03 Africalp up lately. No it's not staying white, that's just the base coat, I think it'll end up AUDI blue like the mudgaurd (then I can push everyone outta the way) :D

  16. Commuting Really Sucks , But Sometimes ...

    Like everyone else here , I suppose, I find the daily trudge into work a pain in the erse, more so, up here in the wet 'n windy west coast of Scotland. When it's dark and the wind blaws and the rain is horizontal, and the ferries are disrupted and I'm standing on some god forsaken slipway...
  17. Tea and bikkies anyone?

    Just went and gave blood and thought I be all sanctimonious and smug and remind people how easy it is these days. Why not give it a go. It takes about an hour from turning up to finishing your cuppa. And you might well save a life or two. It is painless, you do it about three times a year as a...
