  2. The ALP as gone

    As a regular lurker and a very very occasional contributor i am leaving the fold, the ALP as gone! I owned her for 25 months and done 11,700 miles (total 15,400).She as never let me down (punctures excluded). The ALP was 1year old with 3,700 miles when i bought from Thunder Road Bridgend in...
  3. Which year to get?

    Hi, Can someone tell me the differences between XR400's from 1998 through to 2002 please (limited budget!). I stand a better chance of the boss letting me have one if it is cheaper - but I dont want to end up wishing I had scraped a couple of hundred more to get a much better bike. Cheers, Rob

  7. Reaching a whole new low!

    Interesting experience on the Vara this weekend. Couple of friends and I rode to Croyde in North Devon for a nights camping, the idea being to check our kit and load etc for the Stella. We were loaded up, but as it was only one night, not completely loaded up to the max. Anyway we had a really...
  8. Hi all - new (old) TA here.

    Sold my Vara to pay some bills and picked up an 87 Transalp for the winter. Just thought I'd say'hi', cos I'll probably be asking for help at some point :) I see dirty, scraped knuckles in my future. She's cosmetically awful, but a few days rubbing and spraying should sort that. Some plank...

    Had my first motorbike 'accident' today - an idiot in a car decided to do a u-turn in the road whilst I was overtaking him. He didn't indicate or check his mirrors. Luckily I was only doing about 25mph and hit his door at about a 30 degree angle. Completely trashed his door and wing mirror...
