  3. Mid week bimble.

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Mid week bimble - Shrops-mid Wales Sun's shining and the Vara is here!! I have booked Wednesday for a shakedown ride for the "new" Vara. Probably going to do my usual route into mid-Wales via South Shropshire and then back across the Elan Dams and then a bit of meandering around, maybe to the...
  4. Err, that's not right.......

    Transalp
    Noticed this the other day after getting back from my folk's place in Anglesey - That's the clamp holding the silencer onto the "hot-box" outlet and shouldn't look like that. Here's what it looks like form the other side - Yep, that clamp is clamping no more - it has rusted right through...
  5. A wee local runaround.

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    After a late night, clocks changing, etc, etc I managed to get out on the bike about 11.30AM. I don't know why I bothered as the roads were full of twists and turns, there was no traffic to speak of, the sun was shining and the scenery was just a distraction.:rolleyes: View from the Thornilee...

  7. A nice bimble today

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    As some of you know already my wife took her CBT a few weeks back so with a day off work and the Sun shining we thought we'd have a ride out. It's only the third time she's been able to get out since her CBT so I'd intended to just see how we got on and not set any fixed route. We set of...
  8. Lunchtime Foray

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    I’m doing a bit of computer based training just now and it’s mind numbingly boring so seeing as the sun was shining the lure of the lanes at lunchtime was just too strong. After a couple of shortish dead ends which necessitated some U turns we eventually found a through road complete with a...

    We are here with no accidents or incidents. The crossing was even slippier and greasier than last time but we all managed ok. Pub is up and running properly, the sun is shining and life is good ;). Sent from my iPhone with a smile :)
  10. Wild Tiger spotted in Moray

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    AfricaJim & me took a ride into the hills this evening, ostensibly to put some miles on his latest ride, the new Triumph Tiger 800 XC. The reality was we just wanted to hoon around the local roads whilst the sun was still shining. First up, a Tiger getting a serious “lean” on :thumbup: . . ...
  11. Lulu learns some lessons

    Chatter
    For example: 1. If you are a Learner numpty member, probably best not to ride your bike when you're in a hurry 2. Less haste means more speed. 3. Don't hesitate to ask for help when you need it. 4. Logical thinking is better at solving problems than brute force. 5. And above all, don't - and I...
  12. Day 55 - No End in Sight ...

    Chatter
    Crossing the Australian Hay Plain ... again. Driven from The South, kilometremile after kilometremile, beneath threatening skies, sensibly wet-suited, dodging heavy rains, steaming, regardless of offensively-sweaty-overheating-of-self caused by hot shafts of sunlight shining through all too...
  13. Beam height adjustment

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I've been getting other drivers flashing their lights at me a lot recently and have realised my lights are shining upwards. I've taken the instrument panel off to give access and can see a sprung screw at the upper outside corner of each lamp and a butterfly/wingnut screw at the bottom on...

    every year, usually the third week end in september, our non-existant bike club does a boys only week end. This year we decided to visit the northern Jura mountains (having done some of the southern jura last year. There were supposed to be 11 of us but one managed to stuff his harley into...
  15. Welcome back, my queen

    Africa Twin
    I met you in march in Sweden, after you had made a troubled journey from France. Your master was reluctant, but I succeeded in freeing you from your bonds. But for three more months I had to wait before I could embrace you. Finally we made our way to Norway, and we visited the place where I...
  16. Iron Men rather than Iron Butt

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    So it started last year with James 691 pointing me in the direction of Luxembourg, followed by me thinking let’s do something like that again, followed by lots of helpful suggestions including Koblenz, Celle, Rome, the Pyrenees, Stuttgart, Prague, Denmark and then a random discovery that Antony...
  17. Xenon on RD07!

    Africa Twin
    Have anybody installed Xenon bulbs on Africa? I DID! :) A couple days ago I bought a pair of some Chinese made H4 bi-xenons. The sticker on the box says that it is 6000K, so it gives very bright white light. The transformation by electronic means was pretty easy. The biggest problem was where...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    If we’re all sitting comfortably…time for an update on the unlikely (but continuing) adventures of Lulu and Nessie. Given that the sun appeared to be shining in Leicestershire this morning and it being a Saturday (an all-too-rare combination of circumstances), Nessie was promised a ride out...

    .. where the headmster of a secondary school, full of 12 to 18 year olds, feels the necessity to write to parents to remind them that when the sun is shining and it's warm, it's very important your child drinks water and perhaps doesnt wear their school jumper under their blazer ... you know...
