  1. Dommie on the high seas

    Dominator / FMX
    I just bought this 'new' Dommie, it has only done 45,000 km on sealed roads so is in min condition. My project Dommie ended up being too much of a project and I desperately needed a bike for the summer so I will probably keep this one stock for rides really nice :mrgreen: There are...
  2. Russian Convoy Boys.

    For years now my dad has been meeting his old Mine Sweeper shipmates (HMS Apollo) once a month down in Kennington. Much of his sailing was in the post war Baltic seas. Several years ago the Mine Sweepers and the Russian Convoy Club decided to join together as their numbers, for obvious reasons...

    Bodgers Corner
    Even before I bought the X Country, one thing that would be an issue for me is the measly 7ltr 'to reserve' tank - circa 110 to 115 miles but there was so much that I liked about the bike adding extra fuel capacity was not the end of the world.

  7. Bent frame/swinging arm

    Mechanical Advice
    Took bike for MOT yesterday to get rid of the cat C status to find it failed on a few things. So I left it with them to pick up today hopefully with an MOT but they can’t get the wheel alignment correct and recon I either have a bent rear swing arm or frame which is an automatic MOT fail. So...
