  1. Buying a Transalp

    Transalp
    Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum and to motorcycling for that matter. I have always wanted to buy a transalp, for various reasons. Question though, do you guys think it makes sense to buy one now given the fact that it is out of production? Would it make more sense to go for something like the...

  3. Is the crankcase breather pipe supposed to be plugged?

    Africa Twin
    Did some servicing on my AT today (changed the fork fluid, which looked quite good for almost 50000 miles), and I noticed the end of the breather pipe from the crank case was plugged. I yanked the plug out, and out came a bunch of water mixed with a little bit of oil sludge which smelled...
  4. Mid week ride onto Mid Wales

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Looks like I will be able to sneak off for a ride this Tues/Wed and I fancy a mixed road/trail ride, heading from Telford out towards Bala on and off road. I'd be delighted to have company, many lanes are new to me in the sense that it is donkeys years since I ride them so may be a quite a few...
  5. Laugh out loud moment

    Chatter
    Laugh out loud moment today - full page Halvarssons advert in November's Bike magazine (page 61). The reason being the placement of the ad in the middle of a 9 page blather about new Harley and Indian models. But, you'd have to see it to appreciate my warped sense of humour. Hint - it...

    Africa Twin
    is it just me? fleabay, Every 4/5 days, the seller puts 2 sets on, 1 B.I.N £45, the other auction starting £20. Does it not make sense to let the 1st bidder win the set & 2nd bidder to grab the nxt set that comes along afew days later? Or am i just a penny pinching git (thrifty)?
  11. side stand

    How to.....
    Hi all, I feel silly asking this but I cannot get my side stand off the bike, I have sprayed it with plus gas and the bolt does not want to move. Any ideas? the top nut came off so easy as well led to a false sense of getting the job done. I want to weld a foot on to it as it has a spike for a...

  13. Air Screw sense on AT

    Africa Twin
    I have been trying to adjust the air screw on my 2001 AT on either side of the 2 3/8 turns out, and it seems to make little difference. So that I can at least have an idea of what I am doing, could someone tell me which way it works? Does unscrewing it make the mixture richer or leaner? I have...

  15. Gay Marriage

    Chatter
    At last some talking out and talking sense for a change instead of going with it and not upsetting anyone. I've never understood how gay marriage or civil cermonies could become legal, but the ceremonies have. We have enough screwed up kids in this country as it is with out having to confuse...

    Seeking more first hand, real world experience of DRZ400 ownership, I joined a certain SingleCylinder forum. Have to say that this XRV.ORG.UK forum seems a far more helpful, friendlier and tolerant place to be when asking novice/newbie questions. So, Thank You All for your assistance with my...

    I listened to the Chancellor yesterday before I went to work and I've listened to some of it again today. Well, all I can say is I'm voting for them again next time after hearing what was said today. The biggest bit of common sense I've heard for a long time: "Getting rid of the Human Rights...
  20. Common sense.

    Last week I heard an old guy on the radio commenting on the proposals to raise the pension age. His point was 'why is government fascinated in extending working life but bend over backwards to pay out benefits to young healthy families quite capable of working'. I think he has a valid point, old...
