  1. Foam sock around the stock air filter for an RD03

    Africa Twin
    I will be riding dust for 3 weeks. Morocco and Tunisia. I wish to fit a foam sock over the stock paper filter. It is easier to clean a foam sock every other day than a filter ;-) Anyone has a source for such foam sock or am I the only dumbass to do that? :D Lee
  2. Shock Sock

    Varadero

  6. Waterproofs and how they build character! New pair wanted.

    Clothing
    I've decided that there are two qualities that one must rely on heavily as a motorcyclist: humour and humility. Especially when dealing with waterproofs. Basically, because it is hard not to look like a total pillock, fighting a losing battle with one's over-trousers, standing in the road...

  9. XR 400 gaitor options

    XR
    Can anyone tell me if there are any options other than standard gaitors? I've seen the sock type just wandered if there were any modern stuff out there. New bikes and upside down forks have plastic guards is there a reason the xr does not? :confused::confused:

  14. My first trail experience.

    Well I suppose this is not really a ride report as such but my first experience of any kind of `off road` experience. The closest I have ever come to leaving my nice smooth roads is a slightly bumpy country lane. So I set off and the first port of call is a quick break in Saltburn ready...
