  1. Time to explore northern Norway (3500km one way!)

    Africa Twin
    I am getting ready to depart on an epic journey to explore northern Norway. Estimated time of departure this upcoming weekend. I have scheduled the next 2-3 weeks, but have 5 weeks in total in case something unexpected happens. I will leave from Trondheim, Norway (where I live) and journey along...

    Chatter
    I have someone interested in my XL600 and would like to send a bike courier with the cash. But, what happens about signing the V5? Any help, cheers John
  3. Combining xl700 'peripherals' / xl700 offroad ability

    Transalp
    Here's my dilemma: I have SW Motech crashbars and genuine Honda fog lights. It was a tight fit to get both of these on, and involved some jiggery pokery. I am planning to go to the Dordogne next year with some folk from the ABR forum. BMW GS1200s and KTM Adventures seem to be very popular on...

    XL
    Hi guys, I lost the r/h exhaust side panel off my bike a while ago, would anyone know what kind of bike would have panels similar shape and size to mine, Iv looked at about a hundred different ones on Ebay and none even remotely resembled the one that my bike had, theres no chance of getting one...

  6. Need help on installing Africa Queens crash bars!

    Africa Twin
    Hi lads I'm about to install my Africa Queens crash bars, and I'm staring at the parts, but don't see an obvious way to put them together ... There's a slight chance that the beers from last night is hampering my clear sight .. I've checked their website, but being so extravagantly poorly...

  8. pimp my crashbars

    Africa Twin
    I'm passing a slow afternoon at work, wondering if I should get my rusty crash bars powder coated in the original black, or another colour. Please look away now if you have anything remotely important or interesting to be doing ;) I'm a scientist by training and an engineer by trade, so I...
  9. dilemma!

    BMW
    As much as I like the XMoto, I can't decide if I should keep it or not. I keep changing my mind every 5 minutes. It's a dilemma. Do I really need this many bikes? However, it is entirely possible I was the only person who liked the bike in the first place. I've certainly never seen another one...
  10. Tyres??

    XL
    Hi there, Okay so not the most original question but what tyres are you running on your 600? I done a search but not found the answer. Currently have a knobbly Kings front and a Pirelli MT rear which is road biased and okay in the dry but somewhat useless when remotely 'moist'! Looking for new...
  11. Hello there

    I'd like to introduce myself....................

  12. to the outlaws & back

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    So, one of the rare occasions for me to get out & about on the tralp other than just ride to work or a quick flip round the block… From Auxerre to Lohans, to visit wife & childers at the outlaws, 250(ish) k straight down the Nationale 6 from north to south. Stinking hot weather all week-end &...
  13. Manhole covers on corners!!!

    Chatter
    Why oh why do they put inspection or manhole covers on corners. If you ride over one when its raining oil and diesel the old heartbeat red-lines and very slowly drops back to normal... cant be healthy. String up the engineers I say, or any one remotely responsible. Ive had enough near falls...
  14. Career Change

    Chatter
    Well it's time for me to decide what I am going to do with the next 25 years to retirement as I am currently in a dead end job (read temp job at company going down :shock: ) I have done 6 years worth of Oracle, Unix support/development and it is an absolute nightmare getting back into a job of...
  15. Fitting a 12v Relay & Ciggie Socket

    Africa Twin
    Disclaimer first: I am not a qualified electrician and make no claim to be one. The only thing I’m sure of when it comes to electrics is don’t lick light switches. This write-up is based on what I did to my bike and is not intended as a definitive guide to all things electrical. That said...
