    Transalp
    I am looking for a "do it all" bike, to replace the Transalp (London ULEZ has kiboshed it's use) and the R1200RT. I am looking at the Vstrom 650, the Tracer 700 or the NC750X I have ridden the NC750X recently and it was good. I rode the VStrom a while back, but can't remember anything about...

    CRF - New Forum!
    Hi guys. My friend and I recently installed new gears in my CRF 250 R 2007. All works great apart from ive now noticed my bike seems to be getting very hot very fast. Literally within 10 seconds of starting it the pipe at the front is scorching hot! I rode it briefly mainly to test the gears and...
  3. Wanted: Front Brake Caliper Mounting Plate LEFT Side

    For Sale / Wanted
    Part number is 45210-MY1-006 or 45210-MAY-006 for XRV750 1999. I believe the same part is on the Transalps. This is the black plate that mounts the Left caliper to the fork leg. Like a complete idiot, I rode off with my disc lock still on, which broke the lower part of the plate when it made...

    Some folks may be interested to see the Ural chair which has recently been fitted to my trusty @, supplied & fitted by sidecar specialist Watsonian who fabricated a bespoke sub-frame which connects the Ural chassis to the bike's frame.

  8. Norway trip

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Hi all Report and pics on my trip to Norway in August. I left home on 29th of July at about 1pm and just over 1 hour later I was in Folkstone waiting..in the rain..to board the 3.20pm Eurotunnel. I hoped the weather would get better on the other side of the channel. I had lots of time to hope...
  9. worlds greatest motorcycle rides

    Africa Twin
    Does anyone else watch Henry Cole's 'Worlds greatest motorcycle rides'? He was armed with the new Africa Twin in last nights episode, the first time he has ever used one of the big four manufacturers bikes in any show. He was very impressed with it, as if he could be anything else apart from...
  10. This is a question for taller Transalp riders....

    Transalp
    I have fitted an MRA Varioscreen to the 700 as I thought this would keep rain off my visor! Unfortunately as I rode home from Brands Hatch on the Sat of the BSB end of season and it humped down! The problem quickly became apparent that the Varioscreen actually puts the spray directly onto my...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Heading home from Spain a couple of days ago I rode a stupid 750 miles in one day of a two day journey of 1235 miles. Here's my favourite picture of the trip. Canfranc N330a Pyrennes. You could hear a pin drop.

The next day, Monday, 6 of us rode down through Germany and amongst other things had a blast around the "Ring". Now that...
  13. Rode off road!

    Dominator / FMX
    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...
  14. French fuel crisis

    Travel
    Just rode 500 miles through France without any problems. No queues no closures no crisis as far as I'm aware. Took an extra 10 litres in 2 × 5ltr jerry cans just in case but not needed. It has rained constantly. It's early morning day 2 and I'm in Bellac now looking out of my hotel window at...

  16. Rider modes

    Transalp
    Hi, I took the TA to work yesterday. It was frosty so I selected the correct rider mode, adjusted the screen for the speed I would be travelling, adjusted the suspension, de selected, the traction control, selected launch control, adjusted the lean control abs etc:toothy10: Nah not really I...

    Pinched this off another site where it went mega, and was wondering how it would work on here?? So come on. What did you do on your bike today?? (Appologies if it has been tried before, I couldn't be bothered to trail through 500 odd pages looking for something similar) :blob8: Me? I rode...
  18. Is the Dommie engine the same as an XR?

    Dominator / FMX
    Is the Dommie engine the same as the XR 650 engine? I seem to remember my XR being much more powerful than the Dommie I have now. Although I rode the XR500 back in the 80's and my Dommie is a 97 model (Import). I love the Dommie engine but just want a tad more grunt. I want it to lift the front...

  20. Screen solutions No 546

    Transalp
    After modifying my Vara screen & being quite impressed, the Transalp feels plain draughty & noisey. I reckon the way forward is multi layered & high. Modified MRA on the Vara (the MRA was rubbish as stock). I've been looking at a suitable donor screen for the Alp for some time, only when I...
