  5. french tip

    Travel
    I guess some of you will be passing through france this summer & i wondered how many know about the "priority to the right" thing...? If there's no road markings (stop lines or give way lines etc) & no signs at a junction, then the rule is "priority to the right". You'll probably only come...
  6. New Rider - Gaining Confidence

    Riding
    Hey guys, Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but you all seem a good bunch! I passed my test new years eve and have a new (well 650cc) Transalp. Obviously the whole sensation of riding is still new to me, and my confidence was growing with every mile under my belt. Collected the bike...

  8. Short Term Loan of my @

    Chatter
    An American biker friend of mine is coming over for my wedding (gasp, choke, cough. Still freaks me out to say that) in July. It's a long haul for him and, given the weakness of the dollar, an expensive one. Since he's come all this way, he figures he'll have a look around for a few days. He was...

    Chatter
    going around the roundabout coming into my village, front end wobble (wobble it felt more like an earthquake) :pale: managed to coax it round and not fall off after that it handled like a complete pig. Pull up outside the house and look at the front wheel - bloody great big nail in the front...

    Left work this afternoon as usual. Bike started first push of the button, pulled of and travelled 200yrds when the old girl stalled at a roundabout then....... .......nothing! Bugger all, nowt, zilch, nothing. No power, no lights, no starter, nothing. Pushed back to the yard, and whipped off the...
  16. Choke....again

    Africa Twin
    I had a bit of a sticky choke syndrome again, which only began in the last mile of my journey home on Friday night. As soon as I slowed from motorway speeds to a roundabout I noticed it didn't really want to tickover although the rest of the rev range seemed fine. Due to family trouble I...
  17. just off the motorway......

    Great Roads/Routes
    Had this idea for a series of posts. As I travel up and down the M6 between junctions 32 and 21 day after day I know what is just off all the junctions in between that is useful to know. I thought if I started it on that bit motorway others could add stuff about other junctions on the M6 and...
  18. OK, I'm assuming it's the fuel pump :(

    Africa Twin
    But just in case, any helpful hints appreciated! Plenty of fuel - about three-quarters full, bought petrol from the garage on Chiswick roundabout last Friday. Started bike on full choke, then turned down to half, trickled down path to road, choke all the way in, everything normal, set off for...

    Other Bikes
    Just fitted some Ixil cans to my Versys. Apparently you could hear me, from inside the house, blipping the throttle at a roundabout half a mile away. :)
  20. SLR handling

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello Took my SLR out on its first proper run yesterday. Everything running fine until the first roundabout. I turned it in as I would normally but the bike felt it wanted to stand up, almost like a gyroscopic effect. When I got back I checked the tyres, which are Bridgestone Trailwings, which...
