  2. The future IS bright...but the future IS NOT ORANGE !!!!

    Africa Twin
    A little bit of an update for some of the regular forum members. Some of you may remember that a short time ago, I was guilty of contributing in part to mini-revolution that saw a few AT owners shift their alliagances to the ORANGE side, when I revealed that on a complete whim I had snapped up...

    Dominator / FMX
    http://www.bikebuyersguide.ie/Bikedetail.aspx?CBGID=526489&ID=798361&NumPics=1&Make=Honda&Model=Dominator%20650&frmFilter= was planning on getting a transalp but the cash was not there at the time.

  4. Sette Guadi 2007 -Trescore (Italy)

    Competitions / Trials
    Just thought you might like to see this vid of an amateur enduro race which has been held near Milano a few weeks ago. It's basically a "dedicated" offroad event for big twin enduro bikes with only a mild competitive edge... fun is the key word for the day! Some singles were allowed though, but...
  5. Another Newbie..........

    Dominator / FMX
    Well I'd like to say hi, joined this forum a few days ago after buying my Domminator last week. White, 1990 model, imported from Italy so I'm told. This is my third Honda single, my first being an XL125r in 1983,my second was an 250RS, cracking bike that was too. Been on Honda's up till last...
  6. Dommie or TA? A wierd one...

    Mechanical Advice
    Not too sure where to post this, but hey! Got a cuandry: I was looking at a Dommie, but that has gone, so back to the free-ads. I've had one before and I really liked it. My plan is to buy a trailie style bike for the following: Commuting Converting to Super moto Off-roading In that...
  7. where did the big trail bikes go?

    Chatter
    Another pseudo-big trailie type thing (picture from MCN) I think we know which way the market is going :? It's arguable whether big trail bikes have ever been meant to go off road really, but at least some bikes have been built so it was plausible - with spoked wheels, 21" or 19" at the...
  8. WaaHoo!!!

    Chatter
    I've just Made 350 posts :D :D :D A significant number for an old Brit singles lover like me :wink: Next stop 500, then I'll aim for the twins. :D 8)
  9. What magazines do you read???

    Chatter
    I used to read 'Classic motorcycle mechanics' as it was bikes I grew up with, but have dropped it as it seems to be the same 80's jap 4 again and again. Tried 'Motorcycle sport and leisure' but too much modern stuff with way too many cylinders for a singles fan like me :oops: So whats a...
  10. Southern Spain trip - advice/company

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Had a look through the forum and usual websites/books, but personal recommendation is always best IMO. I am planning to slowly extend my travels: Cambridge to Ipswich commute. Done. Cambridge to Oxford. Booked. Cambridge to Newport. Booked. Cambridge to Offenburg (South Germany). Nearly...
  11. increased flywheel weight for even smother running

    Chatter
    been googling as I am contemplating adding a DR650 to the toy collection, I came across a discussion thread where a guy went on about adding heavier fly wheels as it improved the smoothness of the singles, said he had done this to his AT and that it was the bollocks.. any one heard of this for...
  12. First outing on my new At

    Africa Twin
    I just picked up my new bike two weeks ago :D and within four day my brother had talked me into :shock: a "little jaunt into the countryside" So I got a few strange looks at first but they did give me a warm welcome. My brother forgot to mention that it was a meet from UKGSer's.com :oops: I...
  13. Oil.....

    Africa Twin
    I keep coming across references to oil specifically designed for singles and V twins. I've heard that it improves the gearbox. The stuff appears to be a 20w/40 - does anyone have any experiences or further information about this? Thanks to commuter mileage I have to change oil and filter at...
