    Just bought my first set of Rukka after 7years of Spidi. This time I managed to get some good advice in the shop and tried on from lower range and up. Ended up with a Rukka Basti set in strech cordura and including all the D3O protectors, also on the back. Kevlar strengtening on exposed knuckle...

    Sadly a couple weeks ago, an elderly lady decided to cut me off which left me in the hospital with an open frakture and pretty messed up foot. It also left my Twin with some damage, yet thankfully repairable. Now being on strict bed rest, I am searching for parts to get her back on the road...

    Hi all, I have checked and could not see a thread dedicated to the SH125/150 scooter from Honda - so I thought I start one. I am riding a SH125i ABS since September this year and use it mainly for my daily commute - 40 mile round trip. The little scooter is ultra practical and so far 100%...

    My plans to get to the Stella Alpina were scuppered by that poxy work thing. But when I did get home from work a parcel was waiting for my attention. :thumbup: Pro-Oiler make fully electrical pumped oilers, they aint cheap but I fitted one before to the Varadero and never looked back. I had the...

    I have 2 AT's - a '97 and a '00. Now I know my '00 has got a few extras on it - centre stand, taller windshield, panniers (light, plastic toolboes not heavy alloys), plastic topbox, heated grips, bagster cover, altered seat (thank god for that) and maybe a couple of other small alterations -...

Remus 6-1/2lb with link pipe (minus Baffle). She hope's to lose a little more weight when i change the...
  9. Africa Twin
    We went on a trip this weekend we had a blast! about 10 or so bikes and just the dust of the namakwaland here in the Karroo of the Western Cape. Average speed must have been 80-120kph on the GPS and the bike really handled it like a champ. It was pretty hot (33-35c) so we wanted to push on and...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...

    What is it lately with all these stories in the papers about the fatties losing weight, with the obligatory picture of them holding out some old trousers they used to wear showing how much they have lost? The problem I have is how the papers give them such a pat on the back like they have done...

    Struggled all day where to put the new slim-line ballast for my HID light on my TA XL700VA. Think I might have found a place but just wanted to have some other peoples opinions before I spend another day sitting in the garage scratching my head.
