  11. serious Serious SERIOUS temptation (in orange)

    It's big and orange and goes like sh*t off a stick... but it's pig ugly so it's not a KTM. Since they don't make orange Varaderos, it's got to be a Tiger 955i! It's like the bastard offspring of my Speed Triple and Africa Twin. It's not a trail bike at all, it's a road bike with wide...
  12. K.I.S.S.

  17. Bikes on the NHS - Cheaper than Therapy.

    Yesterday , Friday , I had a crap old day at work - (spreadsheet overload) I was delayed getting away and totally pissed-off with life when I finally got out.

    In preparation for my taking part in EnduroAfrica in November I have been getting as much off road time as I can. I have aquired a lovely little 225 serow which I trust implicitly on the steepest of slopes and the most rutted of roads. I have also tried the @ on some of the less challenging...
