  2. Portugal

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Just back from a two week ride around Portugal. Having never been to Portugal before it seemed like a useful way to use up some holiday entitlement from work I was in danger of losing, and get some dry miles on the bike. So, I booked the Portsmouth ferry to Spain, changed the oil in the Africa...

    Chatter
    She's seen me through adventures galore, not to mention my bike test and my first "proper" National. She's rescued a fireblade on more than one occasion :rolleyes:. She's been (more than) tolerant of my amateur and at times incompetent riding of her. She's been neglected in terms of maintenance...

    Past National Meets
    Right. This is NOT an attempt to divert this years National but it would be useful to have a list of known campsites that we could use in future years. This is not a general discussion thread and any such posts will be moved. What I'm hoping to see here are a list of campsites that you have...

    A gorgeous spring morning was just too good to waste so I was out on my Triumph Tiger at 7-00 this morning. Run over the moors to Whitby for a cuppa and a sausage bun, too good to ride straight home so I rode on to Scarborough and pulled up outside the Oasis cafe for another cuppa and a chat...

    Hi all, Just a quick hello and intro. I've been on the muddy island since 2002 and have had two Hondas so far. I am looking to make it three shortly. I'm on the look out for a XL/XR500 or 600.

    Hello there... New to this forum because I've just become the proud new owner of 1985 XLV750r. I know this is not an Africa Twin, nor a Transalp and even less of a Varadero but surely as a blood-related old cousin, I might find some like-minded souls here. Anyway, I wondered if anybody out...
