    t'was 10am, the sun was shining and the day bode fair as the intrepid threesome met at the agreed rendezvous, the Mile End Service station at Oswestry. Home of overpriced "food" and fuel. steveR, ostensibly the Run leader on the "sensible" lightweight NX400 Anive, riding the trusty Transalp...

    Just bought my first set of Rukka after 7years of Spidi. This time I managed to get some good advice in the shop and tried on from lower range and up. Ended up with a Rukka Basti set in strech cordura and including all the D3O protectors, also on the back. Kevlar strengtening on exposed knuckle...

Gear reviews done after 5 minutes are no real use so thought it might be nice to get some reviews from others my old frank Thomas £120 is about 7 years old a heavy beast it never leaked but would gain even more weight and take years to dry out both side pockets are dead...

    I recovered my seat a couple if years ago, (one of the wemoto ones). My seat is non standard and so was a real stretch getting it on. But the side affect is that a few years on, it's starting to come apart at the seams. Anyway the long and short of it, I am looking at getting it done by a seat...

    I've been driving my Hilux through a foot deep flooded stretch of road on my trip to and from work. A few days ago I saw another 4x4 with both the front and rear offside tyres flat. A bit further up the road was a woman getting out a spare tyre. She obviously had a flat too. Last night...

    Last May, after a few Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Sardinia and Albania adventures, even for us it was time to explore Morocco off road! The recipe was the same as before: a core of good friends who have been travelling together for quite some time along with few more that have joined us just more...
  11. Ride Reports and Pictures
    I am not very good at many things and writing up a ride report features pretty high on the list but I thought I’d better say a few words….make sure your PC’s are set on WAPENGLISH…. The Tuscan trip started with bad omens…..I discovered a big nail in the rear tyre the evening before we were due...

    Everyday I get them, asking where the Wilton site is or such and such company and the address they have is the Wilton site. Now, it gets right on my fekkin tits because a lot of these are english who are blindly following the prat-nav. I got one moron this morning who openly admitted he just...

    Was hammering along this deserted stretch of road early this morning on the way to Skye in my trusty Vectra ;) Turned off before Lochcarron on the top road to Kyle. Road absolutely deserted, think I only saw about three cars since Garve, came across this well laden bike with an ABR sticker on...
  15. Africa Twin
    Have been meaning to mention this for ages. As said the front brake light is staying on. There seems to be a bit of slop in the lever, push the lever forwards and the light goes off. I am guessing it is something simple, maybe the spring has got tired, anybody got any ideas. Pop the lever off...

    Not a full RR. Just a taster. Fantasies about riding this stretch of road were a constant throughout planning the trip. It lived up to the dreaming. Dades Gorge Zig-Zags - YouTube Proper write up to follow. Be patient please.;)

    Wondering if anyone knows of any 'dog-leg' clutch levers that fit AT's ? I'm finding the original a stretch & in traffic or on longish runs, I'm getting 'clutch hand' :( I've got KTM WP forks & brakes with a short 'dog-leg' brake lever that's heaven to use... Anyone know if the KTM's lever can...

    Took a wee run out to Aboyne on Tuesday to get the cobwebs out. Lovely sunshine and mostly clean roads but a lot of salt which took a while to get off and make my Alp clean and salt-free. Another bright day today: Stonehaven, coast road to Montrose (coffee at Pucci's - I've been a customer...
