  1. Transalp
    I was thinking about how there just isn't an equivalent to the TA 600 in todays marketplace. It's all either 250cc or 750cc bikes. The 700 translp is just plain ugly. I think the 600 transalp is still the best looking one, a real design classic. If Honda re-released the 600, everything exactly...

    Hello All hoping to shortly become the proud owner of an RD07a does anyone out there have a PDF of the original workshop manual that they could email me. Hope this doesn't break any rules. Thanks

  4. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Afternoon All, During my search for an XR400 which I bought, I've come across one more that is in stunning condition, low miles (1500km) and with an owner who looks after her. Nothing to do with me whatsoever, but it is a 2003 bike and he wants c£2300. If anyone would like the details of Dave...
  5. For Sale / Wanted
    I've decided that my XR650L project is not ever going to get finished and plan to break the bike for parts. Forum rules suggest that I shouldn't list an item without a price but it's going to be tricky in this case :) If you're interested in parts please PM me and don't reply to the thread.

    Just come back from France where not one Biker wore reflective anything. As I'm going there soon on the bike I was expecting to have to wear reflective jacket or some sort of stripy thing. I thought there was a new law. Does anyone know the rules and if there is a law, do they just ignore it?

    I don't get out much. But in mid-May I shall clamber aboard my twenty-eight-year-old GPz900r and be making my way from down here in The Middlesea, across The EU, to UK, IoM and The TT. The question I wish to pose to you Knowledgeable Ones, is this ... are 'Hi Viz' garments now a legal...

    I hope I'm not breaking any rules with this post. I've read the rules, but mods please delete if this breaks any rules and accept my apologies. I know RD03 stands are hard to come by. I've just ordered one from a breaker in Greece who sorted me a headlight protector in 4 days. He has a couple...

    Volunteered myself for a run to the supermarket - as I am currently the least flu affected adult in the house - to top up our Lemsip, Calpol and kids Nurofen supplies. Started off in a good mood, helped a couple of old ladies get a trolley instead of pushing past them to grab one for myself...

    Last post before the off, did we mention we're off to Spain?. No fighting, swearing or picking on the mods. More importantly for the next two and a bit weeks everybody is rationed to one post/day. This means it won't take a month to catch up. Byeee I'm off to Spain ole!! :D:D:D

    A mate of mine from Gravesend just had his bike (TDM900) tested and failed because his number plate was "incorrectly laid out". the garage told him it had to be laid out in 3 rows, eg AB 04 XYZ Has he been stung? Can't find anything on the web about it.:confused: Anyone out there heard...
