    Rusted RD07A Rear (Shock) Suspension Hi, I bought my Africa Twin about a month ago. It has been standing for a few years. The rear shock is completely rusted and all seals are shot. My question is as follows: is it worth it having it restored and rebuilt with a stronger spring etc, or would I...

    Hi, I have just purchased an 1990 RD04 which is an Italian import. Does anyone know if the aim of the beam can be changed? I noticed while someone else was riding the bike towards me, (with me on the right hand side of the bike) that the dipped beam appeared extremely bright and not so when...

    Allegedly, riding standing up is illegal in Italy (it's lumped in with riding without a helmet and other fairly serious stuff) and they can confiscate your bike. This may be BS. But it set me wondering - what is the law in the UK? Even on the road it can be handy - for one thing there are...
