  1. Varadero
    Had a test drive of the 1050 Tiger over the weekend, and a chance to compare the two round a 20-mile circuit from Rochdale out over the moors and back down Calderdale. Quite liked the Tiger, it felt so much more like a sports bike, but I was surprised to find that I was travelling faster round...

    Had my tri-annual company medical on Monday, the PCA test revealed that my prostate cancer antigens were over double the norm. Being just 50 yrs old, they did a retest with the same result. Was sent to a Urologist, who did the old, "bend over/deep breath/rubber glove gig". Enlarged right side...

    Anyone out there help me avoid going back to square one and splitting my crank to check the oil pump. I have just done a rebore and top end rebuild and having put it all back in my newly painted frame connected to water and electric all seem to be going to plan. Sounds smooth and so I let it...

    Just a few words on the test ride of the Suzuki DL1000 V strom at the weekend . Yes I know its no good for off roading but seeing as my @ never goes off road ,I at least needed to try it out . The bike was a 02 with 11,000 miles , clean but I suspected that its was not that well...
