  3. Dominator / FMX
    I'm hopeful to get the old Dominator back on the road this month, however a friend advised there are new MOT rules regarding the exhuast noise. His CBR300 recently failed a test with a modified exhaust. Now my Dominator has a single exhaust and its loud, not as loud as some bikes but I'm...

  6. Transalp
    Hello, I recently bought a 1997 Transalp XL 600 V. Today I ran out of gas after ~280 km (173 mi), so I switched to reserve, and continued riding another 15 km (10 mi) before reaching a gas station. When I stopped, I switched back on to the main fuel tank, and started refueling. I was surprised...

  10. Africa Twin
    G'day from downunder. Since 2009, three of us have been 'organising' a biennial ride called Desert Raid. We don't really organise anything - we simply pick a date and a remote place in WA with no town or supplies within 150-200km and then start a thread on the Oz forum on Advrider. That's it -...
  11. Spotted
    While I was filling up on Saturday, just before a jaunt down the A702 to watch the Tornado steam loco go past, I had a brief conversation with a couple who were touring the UK on their dark grey XL650 Transalps. I was impressed at the collection of flag stickers on the side panels and luggage...

  14. XR
    Hi! New to the forum, so I thought I'd start by asking lots and lots of questions! I'm looking at buying an XR400 (whoop whoop!) and have read that getting one thats been bored out to 440cc is a bad idea - are there any obvious tell tales that I should (or could) look out for? (other than...

    Took a ride west to Spean Bridge with eldest son yesterday, Sunday 9th November 2014, to pay our respects at the Commando Memorial. The scenic route via Daviot and Fort Augustus was taken, to miss any lingering tourists that might still be about on the main Loch Ness road. The temperature sat at...

    I wasn't sure whether to put this in as a ride report or bikes? It was a ride out so it is a ride report but it's the bike I'm really praising today! Up early as Fiona was working today so I set off after 09.00 heading up Speyside from Knockando to Grantown on Spey, a quick stop to see if there...
