  2. Jack up / lift / increase seat height with rose joints / rod ends

    Africa Twin
    I know this is not the first post on this subject. I did my homework though a searched the forum. Not too keen on reweldning my suspension linkage or pay loads of money for a AQ kit. Neither do I know a local professional to make me one. Saw that someone on the forum used rose joints to...
  3. Give me strength...

    It's reading posts like this on FB that makes me want to stop using it. It's not anyone from here. This is actually not too bad, some of them need the Rosetta Stone to be deciphered. Never pay again for live sex! | Hot girls doing naughty stuff for free! | Chat for free!
  4. SPRING ?

    Took a wee run out to Aboyne on Tuesday to get the cobwebs out. Lovely sunshine and mostly clean roads but a lot of salt which took a while to get off and make my Alp clean and salt-free. Another bright day today: Stonehaven, coast road to Montrose (coffee at Pucci's - I've been a customer...

  7. Crosstourer has landed

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...

  11. Bedding for National Rally 2011

    Past National Meets
    This might sound like a daft schoolboy question prior to going on a school trip. Are we required to bring Thermarests. Karrimats, Airbeds etc if you are booked into the bunkhouse accomodation for the National Rally ? I've looked at the site webpage & there's nothing mentioned about this. I...

As I'd never been before...
