  1. Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX

  2. CRF 1000 - another cracked rear rack

    Africa Twin
    This one belongs to my friend. Max weight is 22lbs on that rack (so says the sticker). He had 17lbs of "survial tools and equipement". He went for medium off-roading. Nothing hard. Did a small jump over a ridge and... crack !!! Would you bring less for a day of off-roading ?

  8. Wilbers Monoshock.

    Dominator / FMX
    I am thinking of buying a Wilbers monoshock for my flattracker project . Have any of you chaps used one on a dommie and are they worth the expense? They have two types for the RD02. The eco-line 540 and the 640 which is about £60 more expensive. Is it worth paying the extra just to have the...
