  1. Gunson Colortune

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone used one of these with any success? I'd like to set my @ and CBR1000F as close to perfect as possible. I thought this might be easier than the turn it a bit and listen for the rise and fall, especially on the 4 cylinder jobbie
  2. Handlebars question

    Africa Twin
    My bars have been painted black, badly, I was wondering what aftermarket bars will fit in gold, any specific bend or rise I need? Anyone got any model no's?
  3. RD04 prices

    Africa Twin
    is it just summer making the prices rise? or are people finally copping on to the fact that they are actually a bit of a bargain? mine with a rebuilt motor, new wheels, new cdi, mosfet, crash bars, alpos panniers etc etc etc must be worth a fortune!

  7. energy prices and winter

    With winter on its way and energy prices so high and probably set to rise. What are you guys doing to reduce you bills and save some money, extra insulation, solar panels, woodburners etc???????? I ask as I've just fitted and woodburner and i'm enjoying sitting here in front of it all warm and...
  8. There's not much to compare....

    Ride Reports and Pictures getting up before sunrise on a stolen, extra Summer's day and riding along the backroads to Whitstable for breakfast, before the sun seeking crowds descend. And if you do it on the newly revived Major, there is the extra bonus of grinning all the way there at his puttering, loyal service...
  9. Insurance tax budget rise will hit bikes

    Insurers and brokers are pleading with the government not to increase Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) in the emergency budget on 22 June fearing it will lead to cuts in cover or more uninsured. Coming on top of premium rises anyway, it could mean motor premium up more than a third. The...
  10. Bar risers Vs Renthal high rise..

    Africa Twin
    Does anyone know what the standard bar rise is on the rd07a? I was looking into getting 1" bar risers off ebay for £30 to make standing more comfortable but then I noticed that renthal do a 5" and a 6" rise bar for sale on busters for £39.99. If these give the same rise as my current bars with...

    Having arrived back from CapeTown in February on my AT'98 RD07 I still have my metal mules panniers and racks which I will now make available for sale: We asked MM to do us a one-off white paint for the desert and sure enough it kept the contents safe from the heat of the sun. The boxes are in...
  12. motoring taxes to rise

    The commentators tell us the Broon will be taxing us more for riding. Which a thinly veiled excuse for me to talk about taxation. The average taxpayer will fork out tax this year that's equivalent to everything they earned up to 3 June. Your entire January, February, March, April and May...
