  3. Travel
    During my motorcycle trip overland from Holland to Nepal, in 2008, I drove already through the Himalayas on my BMW R1200GS. Unfortunately in 2008 I could not visit the highest mountain passes in the world, because all the passes were closed due to snow. In 2014 I did get an invitation to...

    Hi all, Got a XL700 new in September. Moved on from CB1300 & Royal Enfield as I reckoned it would be better for my European camping trips. Fitted Givi trekker panniers, Honda heated grips, & Honda large screen. Also made a rear rack that will accept Givi box and also useful for bungeeing stuff to;

    It seems I have to decide what to do now that I know my output shaft is at the thin edge of a rebuild wedge. So far I’ve ridden 5000 miles on my TA. I love it, but those miles have seen me address the warped disc, new headrace bearings and a clutch. What next? The front caliper is looking...

    ...so who's man enough? It looks to my untrained eye that my TA has gone the way of so many, and suffered from output shaft wear. I was giving the bike a once over after it's winter in the shed, and decided to do what I had put off for some time: look at the output shaft. This is what I found...
  12. Mechanical Advice
    Hi there Just wondering - hypothetically - if my speedo cable broke on the outward leg of a long trip, would I be able to legally add the 'lost' mileage after the end of the trip? As it happens, I have two sets of mileage, referring to a trip to Waterford during 2009 when the speedo cable...

    Hi there I have put a few things up on ebay over the last week or so, and just realised (D'oh!) that they might be of interest to some of the folk on this forum. I can't add any links to this post (I'm at work at the mo'...with limited privileges) but a keyword search on ebay for the first...
  14. Mechanical Advice
    Bear with me. Once more I have had a case of my imagination totally outstripping my mechanical competence with yet another "what if...?" moment. So here it is: in my quest to find a bike that won't break the bank and will reliably and cheaply keep me mobile in the years to come, I started...
  15. Transalp
    Hi there Just thought I'd post an update on my XL650-V2 'Alp, which I bought from a dealer in October '10 after about a week's deliberation and research...mostly on this site - so thanks guys & gals for your advice. She was originally a Police bike (a 'station runabout' rather than 'traffic'...

    I'm not suggesting that it is affecting my taste, just my common sense. Over the last few days I have been fantasising (sp?) more frequently than normal about new two-wheeled acquisitions. These have been the Varadero 125, a Van-van 125 (?!), the Royal Enfield Electra EFI, Moto Guzzi V11 Le...
  18. Bodgers Corner
    Hi there I know this has been done before, and I think I saw something on this very site last year when I was working out how to do it - although as I hadn't bought my 'Alp at that time, I wasn't otherwise aware of the excellent forum here. My main mount for the last 8 years has been a Royal...

    Hi Folks I am selling my trusty Eurohike 660 tent, which was pretty much top of the range when I bought it a number of years ago…in the vain hope that my wife and kids would agree to family camping trips. The tent comprises a 4x person dome tent and a 2x man tunnel section - either of which...

    Hi there Hope no-one minds me adding this - moderator can move/remove it if necessary. I spotted a post on the Hitchcocks Bulletin Board (Royal Enfield site...my other rides) a few weeks ago, which someone had previously picked up from the British Two Stroke Club. Basically, it was a request...
