    Hi all, The penny has eventually dropped - I'll not be going to Mongolia or Morocco on my new Africa Twin or having 40,000 mile RTW experience :( But, do you really need to ride so far to have your own little adventure? :D Have a laugh at my latest silly video.....

    Hi all, Drove to Turkey from the UK in my 15 year old Ford Fiesta last summer and bumped into various overlanders. After following there adventures riding over to Aus on Africa Twins and KTM's I believe it is time to get back in the saddle. Haven't rode for about 15 years now, I was a...

  5. Transalp
    Hey guys, as you may know I am in Nepal at the moment with the Transalp.

    Hey all, just thought I'd give you an update on the bike seeing as you lot advised me to buy it. Riding a 2005 transalp and have done about 12k miles on it now from Cardiff to Shimla in India.

  12. Chatter
    Had an unfortunate incident with a Ford KA on the A13 this morning where the women tried to sideswipe me. I managed to keep things sunny side up but the crash bars didn't take too kindly to this invasion of their territory and left it's mark clearly on a couple of panels. No damage to the bike...
