    600 Alp - Loaded test run Well, after over 400 miles since yesterday morning, I think I can safely say that the 21 year old Alp is fairly sorted. Took a 120 mile run over to the Red Squirrel camp site at Glencoe Saturday morning and met up with a fellow Alp rider. Red Squirrel camp site...

  6. Transalp
    So, on Friday night I parked my '07 650 TA in the garage, everything was fine. On the Saturday morning I tried to fire it up and it just spun on the starter with no hint of life. I then noticed the green 'key' light was not going out, so that is the HISS warning light. I've had the bike around a...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts. The only other...

  10. Dominator / FMX
    So like an idiot my GoPro was not turned off. I got hit by a car from behind at a roundabout. I got to the front of the queue and was waiting for a space to enter the roundabout when I pulled away and then got hit from behind by the car behind me. I have photos to show the fuel leak on the...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Oh dear, I have a rear puncture. Didn't discover this until I set off on my early morning commute at 05:15. When I first pulled the bike out of the garage I thought the brakes were sticking a bit. Normally they are fine but should have checked further before riding off and snaking down the road...

    Hopefully, I am putting this in the right place. I am planning on going to EICMA this year and was wondering if Thursday the 10th would be less crowded than Friday or Saturday. From what I hear last year was crowded the whole time. Would love to hear from those who have been there in the...
