  1. Is it wise to straighten crash bars?

    Mechanical Advice
    I've just dropped the bike this evening after someone pulled out infront of me. The bike went down quite quikly and without realising it I found myself walking away from the bike having stepped over it as it went down:thumbright: Anyways, some scuffing to the backbox and surprisingly the...
  2. New Rider - Gaining Confidence

    Riding
    Hey guys, Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but you all seem a good bunch! I passed my test new years eve and have a new (well 650cc) Transalp. Obviously the whole sensation of riding is still new to me, and my confidence was growing with every mile under my belt. Collected the bike...

    .... they do the business. Ordered a pair - they arrived today. For a laugh with the kids, I put them on and stood in a basin of water while they poured freezing water onto my feet. :D feet covered, I stood there for 2 minutes in the basin :p My feet were warm throughout and the freezing...

  6. And yet another seat question

    Africa Twin
    Some time ago, I installed a Corbin seat on my @. For those of you thinking about doing the same, I say, don't do it!! The Corbin is VERY firm and takes a long time to break in. Also for riding two up it SUCKS!!! The slope in the seat has your passenger sliding into you and pushing you into...

Next thing a whopping great big GS??? barges between the cars and toots the monkey bike to give him space at the front of the queue. Odd sight of great big bike carrying Mr...
  8. 06 TA First real ride {long and full of drivel}

    Transalp
    It's friday morning and 1000kms ticked over on the (long) way home from work last night. So over to the honda dealer to get my nuts tightned and bits lubed. Catching the train in this neck of the woods is apparently not that easy... no cash and no atm's near the station... anyway I had my...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    I did some riding in and around Big Bend National Park this last week. As usual, I had a great time. I take a bike and a spare. Good thing too, this year I broke one of them. Here are the players: I had put the GS together early last summer, gone on a few shakedown rides and basically abused...
  10. TKC80's

    Africa Twin
    It's nearly time for a tyre change. My front Dunlop Trailmax has badly stepped tread and I'm thinking of replacing both front and rear with TKC80's. The trouble is you can't seem to get a 140-17 radial, only a cross-ply. Is anybody running a cross-ply TKC80 rear? Any comments on not having a...
