    Hello, I found some well prized Shinko 705 in Sweden and it seems they are not available in 140/80 size. Will the 150/70 be okey on the RD07? Any cons you see wuth this dimension you can share with me? I appreciate any input!

    Not sure if mine is working. Anybody have a working spare for sale - or one that I might borrow to determine the fault ? New prices are prohibitively out of reach. I'm in Worcestershire -postage paid etc. Thank you.

    Africa Twin
    This was my 1ST trip into europe. I made the choice to go on my 1995 Africa Twin, We rode to the ferry in Hull on a lovley sunny day and perhaps it was a sign of things to come when he nearly dropped his Ducati in Sainsburys petrol station, that Ducati side stand really is useless. We made it...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    we went to the Auvergne last year but due to various circumstances we missed out on most of what we’d planned to do, so we went back this year. I actually have very few pics to go with this, which is a shame cos the scenery is stunning & the roads wonderful, but this lot are not into photos &...

    I took a run to the Biggar vintage rally today. Knowing what the traffic would be like I went along the back roads to miss it all and parked the bike in the centre of Biggar so I could walk to the show which is only 1/2 a mile away. I also had the luggage on the bike so that I could change out...

    Well, I’ve not been able to post much or check in to the forum as often as I’d have liked so it’s time to update on my posts about my (faltering) journey towards full bikerdom. A combination of appalling weather this “summer” and work and family commitments have meant that I’ve had fewer...
